Online Therapy With Melissa Russiano

Begin Living Authentically

Online Therapy Services for Adults Across Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Florida, and California

As a high achiever, you find yourself overwhelmed and burned out from all your responsibilities. The truth is, you know it’s important to practice good self-care. However, you’re drive to be perfect has taken center stage. You feel stressed and overwhelmed by having to take care of others. And, you often forget to take care of yourself. After all, you choose your career because you truly want to help others but it’s lately it’s come at an expense- your own well-being.

I overcame stress, overwhelm, and burnout, and you can too. I see you as an authentically imperfect human, self-driven, and committed. Perhaps, you’re struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel and you don’t see yourself the way I do. That’s okay. I can help you.

“Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be;
embrace who you are.”
– Dr. Brené Brown

Meet Melissa

I am passionate about what I do, how I collaborate with clients, how I show up and be seen each day, and how I choose to LIVE BRAVE as an online therapist helping clients in OhioPennsylvaniaTennesseeFlorida, and California.

This is what I want for you, and this what you will gain from working with me during online therapy. My dream is to empower therapistshelping professionals, and busy professionals. I want to help them achieve the balance that can be found in the sweet spot by creating a positive work-life balance so they can THRIVE within.

I am a certified Daring Way™ facilitator and use the teachings of Brené Brown throughout my work to help my clients get in touch with their authentic self. I have found her teachings so useful in treating issues such as imposter syndrome, burnout, and compassion fatigue ultimately allowing my clients to get back to being the ROCKSTAR professionals they were meant to be!

I choose to have an online practice because online therapy or distance counseling allows you to have therapy from the comfort of your own home, office, or favorite nature spot. Online therapy is convenient and it allows you to be comfortable as we discuss some uncomfortable stuff along the way. As a helping professional, I know you have a busy schedule and connecting via technology allows you to figure out what makes you thrive, allow yourself to DREAM, and finally embrace the life you were destined for.
