It's time to stop struggling and searching for inner peace. Pono is Hawaiian for achieving a balance or harmony of the body, mind, and spirit. Often we are out of balance due to a variety of reasons including busy lives, stressors, life events, etc... Let's work together to re-establish balance or harmony in your life. I'm here for you and ready to help you. My name is Teresa and lived in Hawaii for 11 years. I integrate Aloha in all I do.
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, couples, family, veterans, severely mentally ill, addicted, dual-diagnosed, LGBT, and many other populations. My aproach 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.
Through authentic caring with pure Aloha, I am available to help you on your journey.

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!
