About Me

Aloha,
My name is Dr. Teresa Russell and I am a Doctor of Clinical Psychology, Maryland Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor Supervisor, Maryland Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor Supervisor, and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I received my PsyD. through CalSouthern University and a Master's of Science degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Community Counseling. I am also an honorably discharged United States Army Veteran.
I have over fifteen 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.

Dr. Russell helped me navigate many life crises. She also motivated me to accomplish what was most important. Life is not easy, but I find it more satisfying after talking with Dr. Russell.

I really appreciate Dr. Russell. She has always reminded me that I’m worthy let’s me talk about anything. I feel like my anxiety has improved a lot over the past couple of months and I’m thankful for the refocusing techniques she has shared with me.

I'm still at the start of therapy with Dr. Russell, but I'm very happy with how it's going!

I have felt very supported in my path to a healthy me. I feel like I can openly express how I feel without feel exposed. Dr.Russell has made me feel like she only wants me to become my best self.

Written by J.E. on Jun 07, 2019 after therapy with Teresa for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and parenting issues

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.

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.

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.

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 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!
