Ms. Ruth Cooper

Marriage & Family Therapist , MA , LMFT

(805) 467-7319
Are you finding you are having difficulties with anxiety, stress or depression? Are your relationships suffering? Concerned that you are needing alcohol or marijuana to wind down? Are you having trouble sleeping, or finding your sex drive diminishing? It could be that your life is at a turning point and it is time to get to the root of the problem so you can move forward. If you have tried talking with friends and family, reading self-help books and websites, or medicating yourself, and you are ready to go deeper, therapy may be appropriate for you now.
People often believe it is insight that leads to change. But it is also true that consciously experimenting with thinking and behaving differently often results in significant insight and transformation. This is why I emphasize a mindfulness-based cognitive-behavioral therapy approach in my work with individuals, couples and families.
We'll begin with a careful assessment, followed by therapy tailored to your goals and your style. You will have the option to walk outdoors while we talk. Walking during sessions can make therapy more productive, enjoyable and emotionally comfortable. I have routes adjacent to my Ojai and Ventura offices.
