My name is Teresa Russell and I am a Maryland Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor Supervisor, Maryland Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor Supervisor, and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I received my Master's of Science degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Community Counseling and Bachelor's of Arts degree in Psychology from Chaminade University of Honolulu and I am currently a PsyD student at CalSouthern University. I am also an honorably discharged United States Army Veteran.
I have over thirteen years of experience in providing counseling to adults, adolescents, teens, couples, family, veterans, severely mentally ill, addicted, dual-diagnosed, LGBT, and many other populations. My approach is authentic and caring. I use psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), client-centered, solution-focused, and a variety of other modalities to help you achieve your goals. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I was stationed in Hawaii through the Army and stayed there for another 7 years after being honorably discharged for completing my term of service. I learned to appreciate the calmness and serenity that living in Hawaii provides. Through authentic caring with pure Aloha, I am available to help you on your journey.

I was really overwhelmed when I reached out to Teresa the first time. She was really able to focus in on the roots of what was causing me so much anxiety and helped me talk through them over the course of days. This allowed me to really think about what she was asking and how I really felt. I don’t know how I would have gotten through that initial panic if she hadn’t been there. I am so thankful for her insight and perspective.
Teresa is very reassuring, sensitive, and understanding anout anxiety related issues. She helped me get through some periods of debilitating anxiety.
Teresa is really understanding.
She is very personal and transparent. Very affirming.
Dear Teressa thank you for sharing my pain, anger and sadness. Sometimes all we need is another human to make it ok to have feelings, right or wrong. And help them move forward. You connecting with me and giving your honest point of view helped both me and somebody that I love respect and adore see things in a new light. You are amazing. Thank you.
She is real good and listens to you and your problems.
Teresa is as knowledgeable in psychology as she is knowledgeable in life. I owe her.
Teresa is great! Always checks in and responds to messages. Very kind and has a real talent for her work. Would recommend to anyone including people who have found other therapists unhelpful.
Teresa has been awesome! She chats with me just like a good friend would, and I'm super comfortable with her. I would recommend her to anyone.
Teresa is very compassionate and very responsive. Even if I have not sent her a message in awhile, she still checks on me. I feel she has the perfect balance of attentiveness and patience needed to do online therapy like this. I already feel more hopeful only a few weeks in.
Teresa is awesome and goes out of her way to make sure that I'm doing okay.
She's amazing! The first time I've felt hopeful.
So good. Please look for help here - you matter.
She is kind and helpful.
Yes, Yes, Yes!!!! Working with Teresa Russell has been the best thing I've ever done for myself! I wasn't exactly sure how I wanted to use this service. Teresa sent we a couple of quick "worksheets" to help me identify my own goals and challenges. She has stuck with me patiently and with cheer and professionalism, through fits and starts, while I decided if she actually was going to be the best match for what, and how, I wanted to proceed. Exceptionally responsive at all hours! Who wouldn't want to recommend that level of commitment, courtesy, and, now, camaraderie.
Teresa has changed my life a lot already within a few weeks. I am going through a hard time but she is very prompt in replying and keeping my mind on the right track.
Teresa is a caring therapist who actually listens to your situation and creates a solution based on the details. I have never had a better therapist honestly and my psychiatrist is totally on board with BetterHelp now as a result of my progress with Teresa! Thank you so much for a chance to take back my life I will recommend this app and service for sure!
