Esther Elena Ruiz, LCPC

Philosophy of Care

Esther Elena Ruiz is a bilingual Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) who has over 8 years of experience providing therapeutic care to children, adults, couples, and families. Esther specializes in treating trauma, anxiety, depression, mindfulness, substance abuse, attachment, relationship issues, domestic violence, and parental issues. As a counselor, her goal is to build a strong therapeutic relationship with you while actively working together to achieve your short and long-term life goals.

Esther completed her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Benedictine University and received her Master's degree in Clinical Psychology (Counseling Practice) from Roosevelt University. She works hard to establish a safe space for her clients to share their stories in a judgment-free zone and believes no single "type" of therapy is the correct one for everyone, so she works with her clients and draws from various modalities to help them figure out what will work best to achieve their goals.

Esther is committed to providing a comfortable, safe, and trusting environment where together you will be able to unpack, process, and reflect on what is preventing your discovery of your inner self and begin to heal. She can help you understand how your thoughts and feelings about the past, present, and future shape us as individuals. Together, you'll identify concerns and find solutions that aim to help you build healthier relationships and personal boundaries.

Michael Ficaro

Michael Ficaro, PHMNP

Philosophy of Care

Michael Ficaro has worked with clients with a myriad of psychiatric issues including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, OCD, eating disorders, substance use disorders, spectrum disorders, and behavioral disorders. In his experience, all consumers of health care want to reduce symptoms causing distress, address health issues in a nonjudgmental environment, improve overall health outcomes, and return to or improve their baseline level of functionality.

Michael believes in a patient-centered care model where the patient and provider work together to address issues impacting health. He has great respect for patients' autonomy and their right to make decisions that directly impact their lives and health. His role as a provider is to help determine what the issues are that are interfering with one's health and recommend treatment options that improve outcomes. To that end, Michael is a nonjudgemental, expert listener whose purpose is to help my patients improve their health by reducing distressing symptoms that are interfering with their quality of life.

"I understand that mental health issues can be extremely distressing and can interfere with many areas of life. It can feel isolating, overwhelming, and scary to have to confront what is happening," says Michael. "Issues of mental health, however, are extremely common in the human experience because we are thinking, feeling beings dealing with myriad internal and external stimuli that affect us in profound ways. I assure you that what you are dealing with can be addressed to help you return to optimal health. Reach out and together we can find solutions that best suit your needs."
