Julie Russell, PsyD



Julie is a clinical psychologist practicing in the state of Utah, USA. Her background is in the field of neuropsychology, and she spent many years providing comprehensive neuropsychological assessment to retired NFL players, and to older adults diagnosed with neurodegenerative diseases. Throughout her training and post-doctorate years, Julie worked on clinical trials providing psychiatric interviews and cognitive assessments to patients enrolled in a wide range of mental health studies and Alzheimer’s disease studies. Julie has observed first-hand the limitations of standard psychopharmacological approaches to treating mental health conditions and is hopeful that psychedelic treatments may offer greater relief to those who have not benefited from standard care. Julie joined the Numinus team in May of 2022 to work on psychiatric clinical trials involving novel pharmacological compounds and psychedelics, and became trained and certified to provide ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP). She initially provided KAP to individual therapy clients and is now serving as a psychedelic-assisted therapist in clinical trials. Her experience working personally and professionally with psychedelic medicines has given her renewed hope and passion to study and contribute to the development of treatments that help people deeply heal, and create a way of living that promotes their ability to flourish. While Julie is a native Californian and grew up a passionate surfer and ocean lover, she now calls herself a mountain woman and has become a backpacking enthusiast in the majestic ancestral homelands of the Shoshone, Paiute, Goshute, and Ute tribes.
