None of my Prior Therapy Can Compare

I have attempted to work through my difficulties with conventional talk therapy, including psychoanalysis. While different forms of therapy provided me with some understanding why I was experiencing the thoughts and feelings I was having, none of them brought healing or sense of hope. Working with Dr. Russell, and his comprehensive treatment methods, has allowed me to work through my experiences, resolve past trauma and replace thoughts of fear and hopelessness regarding my future, with new experiences of confidence and positive expectations. None of my prior therapy can compare, even remotely, to my experience with Dr. Russell.

Unbelievable and Life Changing!!!

Can’t thank him enough for COACHING me to become the person I am today. Could never have thought this miracle was possible before meeting him. Have been suffering for decades and now can live the rest of my life a happy confident person all thanks to Dr. David Russell!! Can’t put a price on how great I feel now compared to how I felt before meeting this wonderful, warm, intelligent, and just AWESOME man! Recommend him to anyone ready and willing to get rid of their baggage once and for all…..and become the person you where meant to be.

I’m a whole new woman

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. As you probably already know (better than I do perhaps?) you changed my life! Thank you for listening to me cry and provide helpful guidance/words of wisdom; but ever more than that, thank you for being so committed to your research and developing your approach to therapy. I know I would have never had the success I had with you & your approach in any other course of therapy. I truly can’t thank you enough. I’m a whole new woman in all the good ways…where I needed it!

Wonderful and Professional

I was really impressed with the level of service that I received from Russell Associates. Dr. Russell’s concentrated counseling really helped me to quickly work through some difficult issues. I also loved that we could do phone sessions when I wasn’t able to come into the office. I would recommend them to anyone who would really like to see their life change for the better.
Pros: environment, professionalism, quality of sessions

Faster Than Ever Dreamed Possible

I was always afraid of therapy and unwilling to be completely open for fear of being judged, for the shame of things that happened to me and the guilt of horrible feelings towards the perpetrators. This went on for decades and why other therapists failed to help me. I paid too high a price in relationships and years lost for misplaced reticence. Dr. Russell’s intensive healing technique and non-threatening, non-judgmental demeanor (and non-pharmaceutical approach) freed me from the guilt and shame that colored my world so darkly for far too long. Make no mistake: he does not do this alone. The patient has to do the heavy lifting and once the mind is made up to get past the past once and for all, he leads you down the path to recovery, in my case, much faster than ever dreamed possible. This newfound freedom is priceless.

This Newfound Freedom Is Priceless

Part of an ongoing process of emotional healing that started in October. From the moment of our first contact, by phone, of which he gave his time freely and generously for just about an hour to determine whether or not he’d be able to meet my needs, he has helped me face my past honestly and openly.

I No Longer Feel That Past Traumatic Events Rule My Life

I knew I wanted to be free from being ambushed by the past, but it never got completely addressed and worked through in 45-55 minute sessions with other doctors during years of therapy. Dr Russell is thorough and patient, as my mind did what it knew best to survive… avoid painful experiences. His determination to address every aspect of my needs paid off. I was actually able to see how my brain has learned this habitual response to triggers and avoidance. Past traumatic events surfaced, and with Dr R’s process, I was able to visit them as my current self, with my strengths and my heart. This helped to resolve buried feelings, fears, and most importantly to me, how I react to my current life experiences. My relationships changed in positive ways and I no longer feel that my past traumatic events rule my life. I am enjoying feeling strong as a person, with the power to respond to life, instead of automatically reacting based on my past.
