Katelyn Russell is a Licensed Social Worker who uses a humanistic psycho-dynamic approach in therapy.

She believes that having a clear understanding of the past gives insight into current patterns, which in turn creates awareness, allowing each person the space to grow. Her work identifies cultural as well as historical factors to develop an approach that is unique and specific to each individual. Katelyn welcomes people of all cultural backgrounds, sexual, and gender orientations. She has specific interest in working with artists, women’s issues, self-harm, and parents of children with disabilities.
