About

You feel like a fraud as a professional, looking like you have it together but really it feels like it’s all falling apart. You’re a rockstar at everything you teach others, a high achiever, successful in your field. But, if others were to see what was really happening behind closed doors, they would see your struggle to put your own words into action. You give to others, draining yourself until you have nothing left to give. Self-care is a great theory if you could only find the time. You know there’s another way but you’re not quite sure how to get there on your own. You know therapy would help but it’s difficult to make it fit.
You want to feel authentic, balanced, and empowered to practice what you preach. You want a realistic life/work balance that you can consistently maintain. You want to be able to pursue what you’re passionate about. You crave someone who is going to hold you accountable, treat you like a professional but not afraid to tell you how it is. You desire peace.
I am a 100% Virtual/Online Therapy practice, making therapy convenient and easily accessible, even with your busy schedule. Getting Started is easy. I offer 24/7 online scheduling through your own personalized client portal. To schedule a free consultation, head over to my website: www.melissarussiano.com.

Melissa Ann Russiano's Groups

The Daring Way Workshops

In a Daring Way™ Virtual Workshop, you will: 1) Identify the values that are most important to you; 2) Discover how you behave when you’re in alignment with your values (and how you behave when you’re not); 3) Realize what emotions activate you and how those emotions can lead you to behave out of alignment with your values.; 4) Determine what you need to do to care for your emotions so you can behave in ways that consistently align with your highest values. Brené Brown’s work on shame and vulnerability allows for healing on a deep level.
