95% of therapists practice some form of talk therapy, we are in the 5% that give you another choice.
Talk therapy works from the top down, training you to use your thinking mind to control your emotional mind. While this model works for many problems, it falls apart if you have strong emotional reactions because strong emotions pull the plug on your thinking mind.
We do the exact opposite – we work from the bottom up, helping you to identify and eliminate the root causes of your reactions to help you to:
- Heal your emotional wounds,
- Eliminate your emotional baggage
- Break through your emotional blocks
Once you find and eliminate the root causes of your emotional reactions you won’t be able to get yourself upset about them even when you try. Imagine how great it will feel when you don’t have to worry about getting triggered anymore, when you can just confidently do what you have always known you could and should do.
What's Your ACE Score?
ACE stands for Adverse Childhood Experiences. The ACE score is a tally of different types of abuse, neglect, and other hallmarks of a challenging or rough childhood. According to the Adverse Childhood Experiences study, the rougher your childhood, the higher your score is likely to be and the higher your risk for later emotional and health problems.

Instead of the traditional 45-minutes-once-a-week talk therapy model, we use 90-minute and 3-hour sessions to help you achieve up to 3 months of therapy in each session.
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 …
Wonderful and ProfessionalI 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
None of my Prior Therapy Can CompareI 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 hopelessn…
Faster Than Ever Dreamed PossibleI 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 approa…
I’m a whole new womanThank 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 i…
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 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 horribl…
I No Longer Feel That Past Traumatic Events Rule My LifeI 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 trigge…
I Have Never Felt This Free And Peaceful In My LifeYou made such a drastic improvement to my PTSD that my whole life seemed different. I have never felt this free and peaceful in my life. I am deeply grateful for our work together.
I Had Been To Other Places For Therapy, But Things Never Changed.Dr. Russell helped me to completely change my life. I had been to other places for therapy, but things never changed. My life never changed; I never changed. The other places did “surface” treatment and none of it was effective. I knew that there was “something,” but didn’t know exactly what that “something” was. From working with Dr. Russell, we were able to get at the root of my problem. I was drugged and raped when I was a tee…
