She is passionate about helping clients from all backgrounds work towards mental and physical wellness.

Ruschelle's sessions are interactive, creative, and goal-oriented. She utilizes a combination of skill-based and experiential therapies, including hypnotherapy, dance yoga and Emotional Freedom Techniques (tapping), to help clients manage overwhelming emotions and reconnect to their inner mind and body.

Ruschelle's commitment to providing Lyme-literate therapy offers unique insight into the challenge of navigating a complex medical system and illness, as well as the toll it can take on relationships, daily functioning, and sense of self. She is dedicated to helping clients regain balance and connection, and reinvest in the life they want to lead.

Compassionate and insightful, Ruschelle strives to create an individualized treatment plan for each client. In addition to her downtown office, Ruschelle also offers the convenience of remote video sessions. She graduated from Columbia University with a Master's in Social Work.
