Kristen Russell, LCSW

The First Step on Your Journey

Hello, my name is Kristen Russell and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who provides individual psychotherapy to adults and adolescents in Simsbury, CT.  I use a strengths based approach that tailors treatment to the unique needs and goals of each person. Change is not something that happens overnight and seeking help is a first step on the journey of healing and recovery. You deserve the right fit when it comes to the therapeutic relationship and I emphasize this as the cornerstone of a positive treatment experience. I encourage you to look at our initial meeting as an opportunity to ask questions, discuss your goals and to determine if we are the right fit for you moving forward. I am committed to providing a comfortable treatment environment that is nonjudgmental, empathic and focused on treating the whole person.


"A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entitiy; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits."

 ~Carl Rogers
