HOPE RISES exists for those who feel alone, stuck, wounded, or immobilized in life. We offer experienced support and skillfully help you find healthy ways to mend, reengage in life, and move toward what is possible.

Pain impacts the five domains of life: emotional, physical, mental, social, and spiritual.  In our happy-at-all-cost culture, many people ignore, deny, or numb their unrelenting ache inside.

We believe pain is an indicator of a deeper issue. It invites us to quit running and ask the hard questions; to look beneath the surface to discover what is crying for attention.

Initially launched as a grief care practice by Dana Russo, HOPE RISES is excited to now offer licensed mental health counseling with Michael Russo, LMHC.

Shortly after  our marriage in 1986, we began dreaming of a day when we could offer care to wounded hearts. Throughout the decades, our individual roles have always included aspects of counseling or soul care. Simply put, it is who we are and how we interact with those around us.

While we share many passions, we each bring our own unique skills and style to each client. You will find warmth and compassion whether you need counseling or grief care. It is our pleasure and a profound honor to serve you.
