meet The Team
LYNDA MAJURE RUF | EdS, LMFT, LMHC
I provide therapy to individuals, couples, and families on a wide variety of issues, including self-esteem, personal meaning, abuse and violence, trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, stress, gender issues, spirituality, and wellness. Developmental work includes assisting clients in successfully navigating life transitions. Relationship areas include premarital, divorce, remarriage, and stepfamilies. In addition to more traditional "talk" therapy," when indicated, I will suggest using techniques such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) that involve releasing cognitive or emotional blocks.
My work with clients is collaborative and focuses on exploring life contexts while identifying and highlighting strengths and resources. My goal is to join with you as you identify, clarify, and work towards your own growth-oriented, healing goals. I specialize in using EMDR and Brainspotting to release cognitive, emotional, and physical blocks.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT PATTY COMING SOON!
"Before I attended Marnie Davis’ workshop on eating disorders, I knew she would be good, but not that good! Her experience, both personal and professional, and her ability to organize a great deal of material while being sensitive to the attendees were unsurpassed. Whether you’re new to eating disorder treatment or experienced, her trauma-informed approach is not to be missed."
