Russell Stagg

I have been counseling in Canada since 2013, with psychotherapy licenses in New Brunswick, British Columbia, and Ontario. Before entering private practice, I was the resident chaplain for the emergency, intensive care, and burn units at Calgary Foothills Hospital; the Jewish chaplain at the University of Calgary; and a chaplain intern at Peter Lougheed Hospital in Calgary.

My articles on trauma recovery have appeared in major psychology journals, including an invited article for the prestigious journal Self & Society. My research in various fields has been cited almost 4,000 times in academic publications.

My knowledge of child sexual abuse and addictions comes from my training, my clients—and my personal experience. I live in Saint John, New Brunswick, with my wife, Lynn, and our cat, Gracie.
