He graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Science in Family and Human Development from Utah State University. He graduated from the University of Akron with a Master's of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy/ Counseling. Early in his career it was apparent that he would focus a lot of his time and energy on adolescentyouth and young adults. While in college he worked for two residential programs which focused on different youth populations. He spent five years working as a therapist for a wilderness program in Utah. He also spent three years working for a local mental health and substance abuse agency in Utah. Over the years, he has received specific training in multiple diagnosis' and disorders: substance abuse, trauma, ADHD, adolescent issues, and reactive attachment. He also has specific training in several Family Therapy models, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Trauma Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. In 2012 Todd and his wife, Randi, adopted a wonderful boy named Mykiel.
