Ruffin grew up in Raleigh, NC, but has lived across the US in many different states. While living in Kansas City, he received his masters in counseling from Midwestern Baptist Seminary and built his own practice out there: Restore Counseling Center.
He later moved to Atlanta, GA to pursue chaplaincy, and worked as a hospital chaplain for two years and hospice chaplain for 3.
Ruffin has a PASSION for RESToration. When you are feeling tired, exhausted, over productive, Ruffin believes the key to healing is to slow down enough to figure out what is paralyzing you. He believes you can have an abundant future!
Discovering who you are is a journey and it takes time. Ruffin’s desire is to walk with you through the restoration process.
The healing process begins with a judgment free environment. Then it involves listening to your story and the things that you have been through and are struggling with. Only then is it time to speak into your story/situation and work together to establish active steps to help you move forward into wholeness.
Ruffin loves especially working with individuals struggling with family conflicts, marital issues, depression/anxiety, and trauma.
