About Tanya Ruckstuhl-Valenti LICSW, MSW


University of Kansas: BSW in 1994. MSW in 1997


I consider graduate education and professional licensure to be a minimum starting point for an effective therapist. In addition to fulfilling the continuing education credit requirements to maintain my clinical license, I have also taken advanced training in:

  • Family preservation Services
  • Strengths-Oriented, Solution Focused therapy
  • Child Psychotherapy
  • Teaching Parenting the "Positive Discipline" Way
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Repatterning)
  • Clinical Supervision
  • Depression
  • Suicide Assessment and Intervention

In October of 2007 I was honored to be invited to teach a professional workshop on the topic of “Spirituality and Self Care for the Helping Professional” at the Women’s Coalition of Washington in Leavenworth.

I attend consultation regularly to continually refine my skills and to gain from the perspectives of other excellent therapists in the community. I have a network of therapists and other healing practitioners whose work I whole heartedly endorse and can refer my clients to when needed.
