About me

Greetings, I am a licensed clinical social worker with 10 plus years experience in individual and group therapy. I have primarily worked with adult men and women with depression, anxiety, trauma, personality disorder issues, bipolar and major life change events such as divorce, job loss, loss of family or friends, health issues and relationship issues.

I have an interactive approach with listening and understanding clients mental health needs. I look for unhealthy patterns in behavior and modes of thinking that no longer serve you and interfere with you life goals. Short and long term therapy provided depending on what it is you want. Short term therapy is problem specific and will address problems in the present. Long term therapy provides relational support for long term issues such as severe trauma, depression and/or anxiety. Both types of therapy provide care, support and collaboration to get you where you want to be in your mental health outlook. I hope to hear from you. Thanks much, Todd

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Todd Borstad . We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Todd is a good listener and is easy to talk with about sensitive issues. Sometimes his feedback seems a bit generalized and I’d like a deep understanding between myself and my therapist. Maybe with time this more personalized relationship will develop.

A strong advocate for the client. Good at reminding me that I need to make sure my needs are getting met above all else.
