About

You deserve respect & professional support for your individual strengths, goals, & needs. I collaboratively work with motivated people who seek relief, healing, growth, & better outcomes. You may be experiencing consequences of loss; trauma; relationship challenges & difficulties; estrangement from family; general anxiety, depression, or dissatisfaction. I value personal rights and healthy connections, understanding of family, relationship and group influence. With 30 years of working with a diverse client population, I'd like to help you navigate through difficult situations and reach your personal goals.
Family, group, and relationship influence can result in inaccurate, self-limiting beliefs and unhealthy patterns. Discovering what causes unhappiness and distress and learning more effective skills can lead to a healthier, more fulfilling life. I receive feedback that clients feel heard, understood, and that our work together leads to successful outcomes.
I bring personal & professional experience into work with individuals, couples, families, groups & workshops. We all learn from each other! I value equal power relationships in and out of therapy and I see how people thrive with learning "Who am I now," and "Where am I going." Helping people move beyond limiting patterns and beliefs is deeply rewarding.

Colleen Russell's Groups

Workshop for Former Members of Cults

Since 2008 I have facilitated Online Psychoeducational Workshops/Support Sessions (via Zoom) for former members of cults or high demand groups/relationships including those raised in them, categorized as "Family", "Political", "Eastern", "Religious", "Large Group Awareness Training", "Clergy Abuse," etc. Resources are sent prior to the workshop. Participants address relevant issues in their lives, current and past, gain support for healing from loss and trauma; learn successful skills; make sense of their experience, pursue individual goals. Topics include recruitment; coercive influence and manipulation tactics; relationships; personal rights; disconfirming inaccurate, self-limiting beliefs from ideologies; self-care; boundaries; challenges; successes.
