Ruby Bains MC, RCC
I believe we are all a part of one community: human beings, animals, our natural environment, we all affect one another. Thus, it is important for me to support those asking for/seeking guidance as we are all on this journey together. In assisting each other we allow for growth and furthering our evolution/consciousness.
I wish to aid in finding purpose, explore healthy coping mechanisms and cultivate and maintain connections with my community.
I conduct sessions in person, telephonically & through e-counselling. My clientele is diverse and my technique, eclectic. In combining my personal experiences and the brilliant minds I have explored,
I have created a foundation and understanding of the world that has allowed for much personal growth. If such a flow supports my community, I wish to share it.
