I’m Anslie Ruckman

I help teens and young women that are struggling to understand who they are as an individual, make space for themselves so that they can exist fully and authentically.

Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy

My goal is to allow clients to explore who they really are.

Many individuals struggle to find their identity outside their family, friends, and relationships. Sometimes this is realized when a relationship or friendship ends, and we realize we do not know who we are anymore. I want to help you explore who you are and what you are passionate about, so that you can be your true self with everyone around you. When we are able to be authentic, our relationships with friends, family, and ourselves can flourish more than we ever thought possible.

I get most excited working with individuals to...

Explore their identity.

Become and express the most authentic version of themselves.

Develop boundaries based on what is truly best for them.

Become self-assured in who they are and who they can become.

Discover peace with their identity as an individual in the LGBTQ+ community.

Move past their ADHD symptoms (and stigmas) to discover their strengths and abilities.


I received my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Trevecca Nazarene University in December 2021 and am currently under the supervision of AAMFT-Approved supervisor Cadey Phipps, LMFT (TN license #1348).

I am passionate about walking with individuals in their journey and empowering them to become their full authentic selves. I use an eclectic approach, pulling from several modalities depending on what is best for the client, but I focus mainly on the connection and trust between the client and therapist.

When I am not working with clients...
I am spending time with my friends, family, and/or cats. I love nurturing my garden and improving my cooking.
