About Me

Hi, I'm Russ and I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor and an EMDR practitioner. Some of my specialties include: strengthening relationships, assisting clients through difficult life transitions, supporting adolescents and working with those suffering from anxiety, parenting issues and PTSD. Some of my valuable experience includes working as a clinician with teen girls and boys in a residential setting focusing on trauma related disorders, attachment, self mutilation/cutting, sexual identity and the LGBTQ community. I have also worked with couples over many years and work collaboratively with you to resolve concerns and differences and strengthen relationships. I have over 19 years of experience in the field. I acquired my BS in psychology from BYU and my MA in Counseling Psychology from National University of Phoenix. I am currently pursuing a Doctorate in counselor education and supervision.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines Solution Focused, Person Centered and CBT counseling with Mindfulness techniques. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.


I look forward to working with you!

I feel as though I can recount every situation to him and he does a good job of stating his perspective. Often it gives me a better perspective about how to continue to grow in this situation and be better the next day.

My wife and I have been meeting weekly with Russell for several months and he's been fantastic to work with. He is easy to talk with and has helped us work through several challenges. He has also shared additional resources (books, websites) that have been helpful for our family.

My wife and I have only attended 2 session with Russell but were immediately impressed with his ability to listen and discern the situation. He's great at providing us both an equal platform to express our feelings and responds with compassion and understanding. He seems to have a large breadth of experience and resources to draw from. We have really appreciated the opportunity to work with Russell.

Work with me!
