The decision to seek counseling takes considerable courage and vulnerability. Trust, empathy, and rapport with a therapist provide a supportive foundation for experiences of insight into your own life and the possibility of understanding, clarity, healing, authenticity, and change.
Todd (he, him, his) uses a humanistic lens in counseling to explore themes of meaning, identity, belonging/connection, freedom, power, choice and responsibility as they apply to life experiences and their accompanying challenges, including anxiety, depression, grief, spiritual distress, trauma, social isolation, marginalization, stress, relationship or life change issues, and other mental health and quality of life matters.
He believes a sound mind/body connection is the basis for knowing who you are, becoming grounded, and reclaiming power in your life. Mindfulness-based practices are incorporated in therapy to develop self-awareness and soothe the nervous system so that true learning and exploration can take place.

He is a National Certified Counselor (NCC) through the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC) and a Registered Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance.
