About Me

Thank you for taking the time to look over my profile and I hope you find a counselor who is a good fit for you. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) who has been in the helping profession for over 15 years. Over the years, my professional journey has taken me through various positions doing family therapy, parenting skills classes, anger management classes, substance abuse prevention, substance abuse treatment, marriage counseling and domestic violence intervention. I've had the privilege of doing individual and group counseling with clients ranging from children in elementary school to treasured seniors.

My counseling approach involves working as a team with my clients. While I have training as a psychotherapist, you're the expert on your life so I'll be interested in hearing your perspective about what is going on in your life and what might change to help you feel better. Interventions will be based on what you share about yourself and you'll be in charge of deciding if you want to try out interventions or decline. I believe the skills discussed in counseling can be helpful for anyone whether they are experiencing a significant life challenge or just going through everyday stressors.

Todd takes my feelings into consideration and devised a plan with tips that can help me with an issue that I am struggling with. I trust that anyone who receives his advice and expertise will find him very helpful, engaging, empathetic, and eager As a counselor.
