Nancy Ruiz-Barnes, MSW, LCSW 79552

I am Mrs. Nancy- thank you for taking the time in reading a little more about me. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with extensive experience as a Clinical Therapist. I completed my Master Degree in Social Work from California State University of Long Beach. I can use a variety of theories to conceptualize & help guide me throughout treatment including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focus and Crisis Intervention. 


It takes a lot of courage and bravery to share your story. Often times people process a lot of hurt and disappointment as the root of the cause for “problem”. Therefore, the therapeutic process can be very challenging and difficult. As your therapist I will go at your pace and really get a sense of what is needed to achieve your goals. I will create a safe space where kindness & compassion is felt, through my presence, body language, tone of voice and genuine energy for empathy. My goal is for you to be transparent, feel validated and connect what needs to happen in order for healing to occur.
