My practice involves two very different populations: adult and children. For adults I bring a combination of empathic listening and
insightful questions to my clients.
As a listener, I communicate realness, caring and a deeply sensitive
non-judgmental understanding. I
practice participative and empathic listening, while allowing his client to
freely vent their feelings.
Simultaneously I brings discordant elements into a mutual,

troubling or discordant, I help you discover and align these various aspects.
For children, I present a very different set of skills. First, there’s an extensive assessment
period that may last as long as a month – including sessions with parents,
guardians and children together and individually. With parents and guardians, I act as a fact-finder –
understanding what’s been happening and your attempts to make
improvements. For children, I act
as a fun, happy adult-playmate who assesses their experiences through attachment
and play-based testing. With the
parents, I then discuss what I have observed and potential therapies
specifically tailored to your child’s needs.
As a leader at one of the country’s largest personal growth
facilities for 14 years I learned to listen to the multiple depths of my
clients and encourage their strengths.
My approach is both client-centered and body oriented. After a dozen years honing these
team-building skills in the business arena, Russ completed his Master’s Degree
in Counseling, two years of specialty training and supervision in Internal Family Systems
Therapy. Currently, I have begun
seeing children while I complete an intense supervision with the areas leading
