Amanda Ruiz MS LPC

My purpose is to guide my clients on their personal journey of self-discovery, and to offer a supportive and therapeutic environment that encourages clients to take responsibility for their life choices and make positive changes.  I value integrity, confidentiality, positivity, trust, support, and respect in the therapeutic environment.  

My specialty is helping perfectionistic clients to lessen their anxiety, and working with those with high achievers such as entrepreneurs and business owners to maximize their accomplishments. I have daytime availability, with limited evening hours.

I earned my M.S. in Clinical Psychology from Millersville University, and am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania.  I have more than 10 years experience in outpatient mental health therapy, with extensive knowledge of supervisory and administrative aspects of private practice.  I also have run a successful sales company, and have been involved in various other businesses.   I am a trained Brainspotting Practitioner, and also am a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider.

I am rooted in Lancaster County, PA, as I was born and raised here, and received my master’s level training here.  I am the mother of young children, and have been an adjunct professor at HACC for over 7 years. I also provide supervision for those seeking PA state licensure, and offer business consulting sessions at a self pay rate.
