He began his clinical career in 2007, gaining experience with many diverse individuals, while honing expertise and applying various theoretical approaches to promote client well-being.
Todd first became interested in the Psychological Arts after reading classic texts of eminent figures such as Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud and Carl Rogers. What began as a personal interest turned to academic and then professional endeavors that Todd continues to find fulfilling and rewarding on a daily basis.
Todd’s approach to therapy is eclectic, using techniques and modalities from many approaches in order to enhance client life satisfaction. His personal theory for change in a clinical setting is that counseling needs to be practical, goal-focused and strength-based.
