Fun, open, and curious is the kind of couple that Russell at Sunrise Counseling loves to get to know through pre-marital counseling and other relationship enhancing counseling sessions. We're really passionate about mental health awareness and strong, healthy relationships here at Tidewater and Tulle, especially as it relates to the wedding world! And like the rest of your traditional wedding vendor team who takes care of you on the wedding day, Russell's fun, interactive, and caring therapist style preps you and your sweetie for your life's greatest chapter yet: marriage!
Located in Virginia Beach, Russell's genuine and positive personality helps couples open up about communication, realistic expectations, and team-building skills -- all super important things when laying down the foundation for a meaningful, long-lasting marriage. Every couple is different, and he isn't about the cookie cutter. He takes the time to get to know how each couple communicates love to each other as individuals and then provides tools to better strengthen your relationship for when times aren't exactly smooth-sailing. Because life fact, it's not "if" those rocky waves are ahead, it's a matter of "when." Marriage is hard work, and Russell is there to prep you two for your greatest adventures ahead.
One special treat that not many other therapists can offer is exactly what sets Sunrise Counseling apart! Russell incorporates his volunteer work with rehabilitating neglected and abused horses into some of his clients' sessions. He takes couples out to ride with these very horses as a way to help build confidence, understanding, and appreciation for the beauty that a quality life as a couple can truly have together. Hello, best kind of interactive team-building session ever!
When Russell isn't lending his listening ear, you can find him at the beach enjoying the ocean waves and sandy shores. One of the best parts about our Hampton Roads area, of course!
