what parents say about Dr. Russell

"We contacted Dr. Russell because our smart, talented, spirited daughter was not achieving to her potential in school (8th grade), was disorganized, and she wasn’t following any suggestions or techniques we tried to implement. Dr. Russell was extremely helpful because she first of all connected with our daughter and then was able to help her with organization, task initiation, long term project planning, and self-esteem. Now, my child can do her homework without being asked. Her grades have dramatically improved. She has gone from Cs, Ds, and even failing a class to As and Bs. She has confidence in herself and a much better attitude about school. We are ALL much happier!"

"Dr. Russell has relieved the stress of our daily homework battle. My child is taking responsibility for his assignments and learning to be organized. He is getting positive feedback after many years of feeling like a failure. He is gaining confidence that he can be successful in school."

“We contacted Dr Russell because our son was having trouble keeping up with the pace in private school. Dr Russell worked with our son to help organize his weekly activities and plan out into the future for future work. Now our son is comfortable with his weekly workload and recently made the honor roll. Dr Russell was instrumental in helping our son make great academic strides."

"We contacted Dr. Russell because we wanted to be proactive after our son's diagnosis and had already exhausted most traditional therapies. She has helped our entire family unit and been such a blessing in our lives. She is the missing piece for all parents struggling with the everyday challenges that affect kids with ADD. She has been instrumental in creating a long term treatment plan for our son. Her guidance has kept me going through some tough days!"
