Todd, M.A.

Broken. That’s a word that describes the world and the people living within it. We all hurt, feel sad, and struggle with something. As much as we try to cover up and hide, we can’t escape the feeling that things aren’t the way they’re supposed to be. Even if we are able to hide our struggle from everyone else, shame inwardly confronts us at every turn. However, to be human is to experience brokenness, pain, sadness, and shame. As a fellow struggler, I have compassion, empathy, and understanding for those who struggle. I want to help and walk alongside people who struggle and reassure them that it’s okay to not be okay and that there’s hope even in the midst of their unbearable brokenness, pain, sadness, and shame. I believe that people who hurt and struggle need someone who cares and understands them instead of quick fixes and easy answers. There is freedom and healing in simply opening up about our struggles to someone who listens and being met with compassion and empathy. My hope is to provide a safe and supportive environment where people can do that without fear of judgment or shame.
