Ruth Elliott, LICSW (she, her)

(617) 558-1881 ext. 108

Ruth earned her master’s degree in Social Work at the University of New Hampshire in 2004. Her drive for becoming a therapist evolved from her own decades long struggle with an eating disorder. Recovery is something that Ruth holds hope for in each person that she works with. She has worked in many different areas throughout her career but is devoted to helping people fully recover from their eating disorders. Ruth has worked in the eating disorder’s field for the last 15 years as a clinician, and most recently, as the clinical director of an eating disorder PHP and IOP. She is also a yoga teacher who is enthusiastic about helping people connect with their bodies in a way that eating disorders do not allow. Ruth is passionate about educating the community, professionals, parents, and caregivers about eating disorders, advocating so that people suffering from eating disorders can receive fair, compassionate, and equitable care. She practices eclectically and finds immense joy in helping people live in their bodies compassionately. Ruth is grateful to have the opportunity to work for MEDA and continue work that brings her joy.
