Areas of Focus

Welcome to Janine Ruddy & Associates, where we are dedicated to supporting your journey towards improved mental health and overall well-being. Our team of experienced clinicians specializes in a range of areas to address the unique challenges you may be facing.


ADHD can impact individuals of all ages, affecting attention, impulse control, and executive functions. Our personalized approach integrates cognitive-behavioral strategies and mindfulness techniques to help manage symptoms and enhance daily functioning.


Gifted individuals often face unique social and emotional challenges. We provide a supportive environment to explore giftedness-related issues, foster resilience, and promote healthy self-esteem.


Striving for excellence can sometimes lead to excessive self-criticism and anxiety. Our therapists work collaboratively to challenge perfectionistic tendencies, cultivate self-compassion, and develop realistic goals for personal growth.

Relational/Family Trauma

Healing from relational trauma involves understanding its impact on relationships and self-concept. Our trauma-informed approach focuses on building safety, processing past experiences, and fostering healthy connections.


These conditions can manifest in various forms, such as generalized anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, or persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness. Our therapists are trained in evidence-based interventions, including cognitive restructuring, exposure therapy, psychoeducation, behavioral activation, and mindfulness practices. These approaches are tailored to each individual, aiming to reduce symptoms, increase coping skills, and foster resilience. We work collaboratively with clients to regain control of their lives, find hope, and build a foundation for long-term mental wellness.


Burnout is a common experience in high-stress environments, impacting physical health and job satisfaction. We assist individuals in identifying sources of burnout, implementing self-care strategies, and exploring work-life balance for sustained well-being.

Work/School Stress

Coping with work or school-related stressors is essential for maintaining productivity and mental wellness. We provide tools for stress management, time management, and effective communication to empower individuals in managing stressors proactively.
