Lucy Russell

LCSW-C, Psychotherapy

I have always been in awe of the human mind and spirit, and how we are able to triumph over even the toughest of hardships. My biggest triumphs involve helping other human beings discover their own power to create a life that reflects who they truly are.

I received my Bachelor’s in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh in 2014 and received my Masters of Social Work from Salisbury University in 2019. Originally from the Washington, DC area, I have over 10 years of experience in working with homeless communities in various cities, crisis management and intervention, child welfare and foster care youth, and individuals and their families experiencing addiction and recovery. Over this time, I have come to specialize in working with individuals with anxiety disorders, addiction, grief, and trauma.

I use an empathetic and person-centered approach to my practice and take from therapeutic modalities such as Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS).

My primary goal is to work together with you to create a space where you can discover parts of yourself that may have been hiding behind anxiety, anger, addiction, or shame. In my office you are allowed to feel the way that you feel, you are the expert on your own experience. Together we can explore why you do the things you do and start to create a map toward healing and growth.
