Adam Russo's bio

This content was provided by Adam Russo "My name is Adam Russo and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). What that means is that I have a Masters Degree in Professional Counseling (Central CT State University), spent roughly 8.5 years being educated and supervised. In total, I have over 20 years experience as either a educator, instructor, and mental health worker. I am licensed to talk about people's strengths and challenges and help them develop solutions, strategies, or insight into their current situations. I spent seven total years in the United States Navy both active duty and ready reserves and was the recipient of an Admiral's Citation. After getting out, I received my Associates degree from Middlesex Community College and Bachelors Degree from Charter Oak State College in Criminal Justice and received the Sergeant Dingwall State Award for Academic Excellence. I have had extensive crisis intervention experience as a Shift Coordinator for a Residential Treatment Facility for serious juvenile offenders. I completed my three semester graduate internship experience at the Rocky Hill Veterans' Home at both their immediate care and former substance rehabilitation programs. I also worked as a Lead Counselor for a leading outpatient counseling facility (majority of clients were mandated by parole or probation) and then as a Intensive In-Home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Service (IICAPS Yale Program for children that may be at risk for inpatient hospitalization) Clinician for a leading child psychotherapy provider. Most recently I have been working as a counselor at a nearby hospital in their adult acute psychiatric inpatient department helping individuals with acute psychiatric challenges. Some interesting facts about me: I worked for the Transportation Security Administration I traveled the world as a Fire Control Technician in the Navy I obtained a Black Belt in Parker Kenpo Karate as a junior in high school I'm a little bit of a nerd! Love electronics, carpentry, mechanics, and electrical I'm a father and my wife and I have been together for over 12 years! Why is all of this important? It has been determined by several research studies (Miller, Duncan, & Hubble,1997; Miller, Hubble, & Duncan, 1995) that the model and technique a therapist uses only constitutes 15% of overall therapeutic outcomes. 40% was attributed to extra-therapeutic factors (income, transportation, etc.) and 30% was due to the therapeutic relationship you have with your counselor! That means first a foremost, your therapist should to be obtainable (e.g. close by, attainable) and perhaps most importantly MUST be someone you like, trust, and think can help you! Does your therapist have a similar culture? Is gender of your therapist important when it comes to trust or previous traumatic experience? Is the model they are practicing in line with your belief system? (e.g. are you the expert of your own life or is the person you are going to be seeing?) This stuff is really important!"
