About Marni Russo, Psy.D.

As the Director of Operations at Madison Park Psychological Services I help to manage and organize the practice. This includes coordinating systems, streamlining and regulating administrative and clinical procedures, developing programs, and managing personnel. Additionally I conduct initial consultations with prospective clients to understand and determine current therapeutic needs and to match them with therapists in our practice. 

My Approach

When conducting initial consultations, I listen carefully in an empathetic and attuned manner. It is this listening that aids in pairing clients with well matched therapists, both in therapeutic style and personality, to help clients reach their goals and alleviate suffering. I believe it is quite brave to begin the process of therapy, and as an initial point of contact I provide clients with an open, warm and nonjudgmental environment to express and explore what is ailing them. As a previously practicing therapist myself, I worked from an integrative perspective, combining psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) based skills as needed. I have experience treating a diverse population across age and diagnosis. Thus, my background allows me to provide sound client-therapist matching via initial consultation at MPPS. 

Professional Background

I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology – Yeshiva University. Prior to this, I received a masters degree in school psychology from Columbia University. I studied psychology as an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis. I have held clinical positions in private practice offices, community clinics, hospitals, and schools.
