About Me

If you are ready for a new beginning, schedule a session today. I am flexible with sessions as well. I work with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, ADHD, ADD, ODD, parenting concerns, adjustment issues, relationship problems, and issues problem solving. In addition to the different areas I focus on, I am flexible with sessions.

My primary therapeutic approach is called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This approach is useful in addressing how you think, feel, and behave. It is my belief that how we think, makes us feel, and we behave accordingly. My goal is to address your life’s struggles with strategies that allow you to be more empowered to maintain changes (i.e. healthier thinking, feeling, and behaving), reach goals, and feel less overwhelmed with all of the things that are going on in your world.

We sometimes are in need of direction, validation, and make sense of what is going on in our world. As your therapist, you will not be alone in this journey.

Cory is an amazing therapist. I feel genuinely supported and listened to by him. I am always looking forward to my session with him as he is also a very friendly person. Would recommend him 100% as he is what I would have expected from a therapist.

You have been instrumental in the changes I have made in the life and I appreciate your honesty and guidance.

Cory has been a great therapist.
He listens and gives me actionable advise that has helped me tremendously.
He has a very good energy and I feel positive after each session with him.
He has a good sense of humour about my incorrect self-diagnoses and is not condescending at all.
I highly recommend him.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Cory. He has been a comforting, stabilising presence in my life at a time when I have found things going absolutely haywire. Building a good rapport with him was key for the sessions to have a meaningful impact and I was delighted to be able to build it so quickly. His ability to make pointed observations and ask direct and thought-provoking questions have allowed me to understand myself better and introspect much more. His advocacy for a goal-oriented, incremental approach to self-improvement and problem solving strongly resonated with me and helped me chart a course to work on independently. I hope to touch base with him again at some point in the future to assess where things stand after working on the strategies we have set out. I would highly recommend him as a therapist to anyone seeking help.

Cory is amazing! Very understanding and knowledgeable, I always feel comfortable talking to him and listening to his advice. He has really helped me grow as a person over the few past weeks. I would definitely recommend him to everyone I know.

Written by J.A. on Sep 22, 2021 after therapy with Cory for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I have had only three sessions with Cory Russell so far but they have been more than helpful. He is very easy to talk to, I was able to talk through my emotions while feeling safe and welcoming. Cory also asks the few right questions and nails the cause of my problem, which shows how talented he is.

Cory has been a massive help for me to cope with the big change that happened in my life and my kids. He is very professional, calm and the tools he used for me to better understand who I really am and what I can overcome, I must say are very effective. I have problems with family conflicts, separation, confidence, anxiety and depression and how to lift myself up from being broken. He helped me tremendously. I highly recommend Cory.

I am honestly glad I chose to stick around with Russell. He makes communication easy and comfortable. As well he is transparent with feedback, which I greatly appreciate. He may not seem like an ideal fit at first, but give it some time you will find your rhythm with him.

He has helped climbed out of my lowest lows. It’s like talking to a close friend sometimes. Makes sure you tackle all your problems and issues and move forward in a healthy manner.

Written by A.N. on Aug 20, 2021 after therapy with Cory for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Went through a bit of a situation in regards to my own identity and relationship. Cory would always provide context to help me understand why things would happen the way they would but more importantly, helped me see what areas I need to work on and how to work on them. Thank you!

Cory Russel is an excellent Counselor. He listens and keeps notes so he does not forget, he gives you space to talk when you want to, and provides you with relevant information from his expertise to help you find solutions. He is engaging and cheerful, while taking your situation seriously. He makes sure that he understands your situation well and that the next steps are clear for you. I truly appreciate the effort he has made in our sessions. The expert advice he has provided and the space to talk in a safe place has helped me enormously.

I've only had 2 sessions but it's such a different, more positive experience than previous counselling I've had.

Written by G.L. on Apr 15, 2021 after therapy with Cory for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

He is very understanding and gives great unbiased advice. I enjoy our sessions and have learned a few thibgs about myself that I was not aware of. He makes it a safe space to vent without judgement so you feel more inclined to share openly.

Written by S.A. on Mar 04, 2021 after therapy with Cory for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Corey is a fantastic listener and makes the session feel extremely casual, as if you are talking to a friend that happens to be a trained psychologist.

Written by J.A. on Jan 17, 2021 after therapy with Cory for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, coping with life changes, and coaching

Provides professional guidance and support by offering mental health strategies which have enhanced my coping mechanisms. Corey has excellent interpersonal skills and establishes rapport easily. He is knowledgeable about CBT and uses this knowledge to facilitate and interpret my perspective regarding personal and professional issues.
