Chuck Ruby, PhD

Ph.D.

About

Dr. Ruby works with adults using humanistic and existential approaches. He helps people use their inherent abilities to reorganize and reconstruct their lives. He rejects the idea of "mental illness" as it is a misleading metaphor that creates diseases out of basic human struggles and feelings. He likewise disagrees with and cautions against the use of psychiatric drugs as they do not correct any so-called chemical imbalances of the brain, and they have many harmful effects. Dr. Ruby recognizes that as humans we all share the difficult challenges of finding meaning, accepting our limitations, connecting with others, and taking responsibility for the ultimate direction of our lives.
