About Ruth Trowbridge, MA, LPC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over six years clinical experience and 12 years in Roaring Fork Valley helping professions. A 26-year resident of Glenwood Springs, I am a person who has fulfilled many roles.  The held beliefs of equanimity and universality sustain me personally and professionally: Joy and suffering are two sides of the same coin.  None of us suffers alone.

Being present to your own experience is your greatest work, and likewise,  I am devoted to presence in therapy. We will collaborate to understand what is now and what from the past is not serving.  You are supported in change.

Stress, Anxiety & Depression

Depression, stress and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we experience in life. Together, we apply proven methods of improving mood from the 'top down' and the 'bottom up.' Through counseling and treatment, you and I collaborate to help you connect with resources that all humans deserve and to discover self-compassion,  alternative perspectives, and joy.  

Stress PTSD EMDR trauma

Trauma & Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Stressful events like bullying, abuse, frequent moves/immigration, combat/DV, divorce and natural disasters can overwhelm our nervous systems. Even long after, we may feel as if we were still in the dangerous situation and act in curious ways!  In order to get through daily situations, negative coping skills like drugs and alcohol, anger, passivity, and avoidance eventually weigh us down. I will help you overcome these symptoms and guide you in practicing for successful, satisfying outcomes. Visit:

depression teen counsel therapy


Teens (12-18 years) want understanding in these fast-paced times. They are facing challenges  unlike any other generation, right here in the Roaring Fork Valley.  

Some are seeking comfort through acting out, avoidance, self-harming, and drugs.  I strive to provide integrity, humor and a secure therapeutic relationship where teens can not only get clarity but also learn skills.  Parenting is supported in the counseling process so that the whole family can make change, adjust, and go forward in peace.
