Vanessa Russell

Having suffered from depression, anxiety, loneliness, and suicidal thoughts since childhood, my path wasn’t always a smooth one. Through the power of therapy, a wonderful support system, and my love for writing, I’ve been able to work through my traumas and dive into a multi-year process of growth, healing, and self-discovery. Being able to write about my personal experiences and offer sound advice in a non-judgemental way via The Roots of Loneliness Project has been a wonderful outlet to not only share my thoughts and insight but to learn from others as well. I’m a firm believer in the power of healing and as an empath, I truly understand the complexities of the human condition. I want to use my gift of writing to continue articulating what others struggle to communicate when it comes to their emotions.
