Margaret "Stephanie" Ruanto is a licensed clinical social worker. Stephanie understands that it can be overwhelming to seek treatment. Asking for help is a tough decision for many people and trusting a therapist with their personal feelings and information is often anxiety-producing. Stephanie offers support and a listening ear as her patients find relief from the burdens of emotional distress. Her goal is to foster growth in her patients so they can find solutions to improve their quality of life.
Stephanie has worked extensively with adults and couples seeking help for a variety of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, and marital and family conflicts. She takes a special interest in treating mood and anxiety disorders. Stephanie has an eclectic treatment approach, which allows her to tailor each session to the patient’s preferences and personality. She typically relies on a blend of cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and person-centered theory. Stephanie has been providing therapy since 1988 and works with all patients over 18. Outside of work, Stephanie enjoys gardening, reading, watching old movies, and antiquing. She was born and raised in Kentucky, is a dog-lover at heart, and is a skilled gingerbread house-builder. Stephanie was drawn to SohoMD because of the team collaboration and the ability to connect and brainstorm with her peers.
