Melissa Russiano

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW, LISW, CDWF
WHY work with me virtually…. Because I drink water from wine glasses since it makes being healthy way more fun. For the life of me I cannot eat with chopsticks even though my nephew mocks me for it every time he sees me. Because I laugh at all of my quirks, am far from perfect and am willing to partner with you to be able to achieve any goal you establish for yourself. Because at the end of the day I am committed to helping you work through feelings of burnout, imposter syndrome, compassion fatigue and overall fear so that you can live a life in which you thrive in. A life that allows you to life your purpose.

TREATMENT AND TOOLS FOR TRAUMA

Licensed Psychoanalyst, PH.D., IN PSYCHOANALYSIS AND NEUROSCIENCE, CERTIFIED PSYCHOANALYST, PSY.A, & LICENSED PSYCHOANALYST
My background is in both psychoanalysis and neuroscience (doctorate) and I am also a Certified and Licensed Psychoanalyst. So I am able to bring both a background in research into mind/brain issues, and I am trained as a clinician. I have been working with trauma for many years, and most recently (2016) I have been working with traumatic brain injury patients (including professional athletes). I am grateful for my dual background in mind/brain, because all brain injured patients require both perspectives. In August of 2023 I published "The Complex Architecture and Healing of Traumatic Brain Injuries: Listening to The Brain" with Cambridge Scholars Publishing in the UK. This is the story (based on case histories) of the journey to find a "healing road" for all persons who have had serious disruptions in brain functioning. This is very, very challenging territory to work in. And in my experience, requires a great collaboration between doctor and patient. I am also the author of "Moon Over Seaville," the story of the hunt for a serial arsonist in Southern California (in 4 Episodes). Available everywhere under "Mystery/Thrillers." I have patients all across the country (via phone). Brain injuries can be healed!

Connie Taylor, Ph.D.

Psychologist, Clinical Psychologist, Certified Imago Therapist, Depth Psychologist
My training is in Depth Psychology, which means that I am interested in the whole person, including thoughts, feelings, somatic symptoms as well as the developing sense of Self. I also believe that we are all mirrors for each other and so we are always in relationship in one way or another, with ourselves, nature, and life that is going on all around us. I believe that our wounding occurs in relationships and so does our healing. We all need a witness to our pain and I believe that the therapeutic relationship must be one of trust and connection, so I work hard to build a relationship that helps to ease the work of the individuals or couples that I see.
