Ruth Setlak is an LCSW, trauma therapist, and owner of a private practice in the Denver area of Colorado. She works with children, families, and adults to support the healing of the nervous system, build healthy social-emotional capacities, improve the parent/child relationship, and move forward from traumatic experiences.

She is also certified in EMDR, and Deep Brain Reorienting (DBR) for trauma and attachment wounds.
