Welcome to Dr. Russell's Office

Dr. Jim Russell

Dr. Jim Russell (a.k.a. Dr. Jim) is a certified psychological examiner with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), a National Certified Counselor, he is a member of the American Counseling Association, and a Diplomate and Clinical Mental Health Specialist with the American Mental Health Counseling Association.  He is licensed to practice as a Counselor in Missouri.

Psychoeducational testing is a good way to find a person’s strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes the person has a learning disability or attentional issues (e.g., ADD or ADHD) that interfere with academic success. Dr. Jim has over 25 years of experience doing Psychoeducation evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults… One of his passions is helping Twice-Exceptional learners (e.g., being gifted and also having a learning disability) to be successful.

Dr. Jim lives in Webster Groves Missouri, where he continues to marvel at how wonderful human beings can be—when they try.

Open for online assessments

The office is now open to do online assessments this summer. Teleneurocognitive [Telehealth] Assessment means using video (e.g., GoToMeeting format], phone or similar online methods to do an assessment. The assessment process can include interviews, review of records, and testing. It is also called remote testing or assessment.

Dr. Russell and his staff use a detailed Informed Consent Statement for doing Telehealth and Teleneurocognitive Assessments, which thoroughly describes the process. Also, he is happy to speak with you about the reliability and validity for doing online assessments.

If you want to get testing done this summer please call the office at 314-963-8862.


Craig Office closed

In light of the on-going Covid-19 situation, the Craig Office will be closed until the social distance recommendations are rescinded.

I understand that this is an extremely difficult time for everyone. At this time, my staff and I are working on HIPAA compliant options to communicate with the clients who have already started an evaluation. However, if you need to communicate with me, please feel free to reach out by telephone.
