Kerri Russell-Russo, LCSW & Associates
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LCSW
Verified
I have been working in the Social Work field for over twenty years specializing in children, adolescents and adults. I have extensive experience in diverse issues such as trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, addictions and family dynamics. My approach is both traditional and non-traditional, which led to my training in EMDR, Sandplay therapy and Brainspotting. These treatment modalities can greatly assist in the processing and healing from issues that are deeply-rooted and often not fully resolved with talk therapy alone. I have expanded to include highly-skilled therapists who share in my enthusiasm and love for this work.

My role as a counselor is to be an instrument for change. I aspire to help others reach their full potential as we transition through life's challenges together. Using a strengths-based approach, I support clients as they learn to accept existing circumstances. I assist clients in developing clarity and encourage identifying areas where one can grow personally to attain realistic goals. Together we embark upon a journey that often times explores the price of self-doubt, the importance of forgiveness, and the ability to develop increased faith, trust, and belief in oneself.

Therapy is a delicate balance of acceptance and change. I use a person-centered approach to create a validating environment in which you can open up, feel genuinely cared for, and develop a trusting therapeutic relationship. I can guide you through the complex process of change. I can offer skills and techniques for improving your life in the short term while the work of learning how to change your thinking takes place. I primarily practice Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) which I have extensive training and experience with, and also use techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI).

I am a therapist who believes strongly that talk therapy sometimes just isn't enough. Sometimes when a person experiences difficulties in life, their defenses can often get in the way. This is especially true when you are a child, have experienced trauma, or struggle with Eating Disorders. Sandplay therapy and other approaches can help break-down those barriers and promote healing.
