About Me

My name is Janet Meredith Todd, and I am a Christian Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I received my Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Virginia Intermont College in Bristol, VA and a Master of Arts in Counseling from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.

I have been employed for 40 years beginning in 1981 as a Social Worker at a county Department of Social Services in Child Protective Services, Foster Care/Adoption, and preparing Custody Investigations for the County Juvenile Court System. I have also been employed in community service agencies as a hospital social worker, Child Abuse Resistance Coordinator, Individual/ Family Therapist in a local school system, In Home Family Therapist Supervisor in a Child and Adolescent Unit, and Director for United Methodist Home for Children. As an Adjunct Faculty member with Virginia Commonwealth University, I am certified and trained to teach Parenting Skills, The Family as a System, Emotional Disorders, Principles of Human Services, and Measuring Client Change. I am semi-retired and will only be working two days per week. My days of availability are Monday and Tuesday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EDT.

I am a native of rural Southwest Virginia, have resided in this area my entire life and have been in private practice for 17 years serving in my community. I have been married for 43 years, have two adult daughters and one granddaughter.

Contacting a counselor to assist you and/or your family may be a difficulty decision. However my goal is to use my knowledge, skills, abilities, and life experiences to be of service to you. I like to develop a positive, trusting rapport to enable us to work together to meet your goals for you and/or your family. I look forward to working with you.

I feel very blessed to have Janet as my therapist. We have come a long way in a short period of time. She is always prompt and accommodating. She is never pushy and I feel comfortable sharing with her. We can laugh together and it's refreshing to be able to enjoy those moments even when the topics are difficult. I alway feel better after our sessions. I am looking forward to continued progress with Janet!

Janet is great at being light in a dark moment for me. She is teaching coping skills, as well as wats to be more effective in my communications which is what is needed for me to be a better version of me. I thank her for including prayers in her tactics and knowing when it's necessary. Although I nlknow that protocol is protocol, 45mins just isn't enough at times. I couldn't have picked a better therapist to work with. Thanks Janet.

Janet is a spectacular counselor. She listens intently to your concerns and is able to draw out amazing points of view or fish out the true deep emotions you are unaware of. within yourself that can be hindering you. She has helped me to understand my emotions and situation on a higher level. She is encouraging and helps you to feel secure and confident. She is great at asking questions to help guide you to your own personal goals. In just a couple of sessions, she has helped me to see myself from the outside and ground myself.
