Anna Maria Ruggirello, LPC, DBT, Cer, Licensed Professional Counselor in Philadelphia
I am a licensed professional counselor, DBT certified, and have worked with families, adolescents and adults since 2005. I aide teens who especially struggle with social anxiety, and depression, focusing on positive behavior and coping skills; with Individual therapy that is modern and private, available to your home or place of business. Additionally, I hold DBT groups on extreme emotional responses, methods to regulate thoughts and behaviors, and distress tolerance. I offer both individual and group therapy to address self destructive and even self-injurious behaviors, and replace these behaviors with healthy coping skills.
I have worked extensively as a therapist in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I have used my extensive training in family counseling, crisis intervention, substance abuse treatment, and dialectical behavioral therapy to treat children, adolescents, young adults and adults struggling with various difficulties.
I work closely with the patients and families to target the issues and provide solutions, as well as prescribing providers in order to coordinate and optimize care.
