Senior Clinical Psychologist
Dr. Ruth’s professional approach is underscored by a commitment to equity, inclusion, empirically-informed practices, and a decolonized approach to the field of psychology. A decolonized lens recognizes that biases, western cultural values, and oppressive practices have contributed to the development of the field psychology. Dr. Ruth strives to ensure appointments feel collaborative and that cultural values and identities are discussed throughout the appointment. She works to make sure processes and tasks are transparent and barriers to care are discussed and removed whenever possible. Dr. Ruth uses a trauma-informed, sex positive, gender-affirming framework and highlights strengths associated with neurodiversity. She frequently integrates concepts from non-violent communication (NVC) and, more generally, humanistic thought into her work. Dr. Swartwood specializes in applied ethics, sexuality and gender issues, grief and bereavement, and neurodevelopmental differences.
Dr. Ruth’s professional experience has focused on providing psychological evaluations and psychotherapy in community mental health and private practice settings.
