UC 175: University Experience
Todd is the Clinical Director of the Talley Family Counseling Clinic. He is a graduate of WKU’s Marriage & Family Therapy program (2008) and completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Kentucky in Corporate Communications. Todd spent seven years working in finance prior to returning to graduate school and has since worked in a variety of settings including residential, community, and private practice settings. Most of his post-graduate experience is in higher education and private practice working with adolescents and adults as well as couples. Todd views therapy as a partnership between client and therapist and enjoys working with anxiety/trauma, addictions, phase of life concerns, and personal growth. His approach to therapy is influenced by psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, post-modern, and systems perspectives. He hopes to establish a sense of comfort and safety within the therapy room and views clients as authors and experts of their lives. Todd hopes to join and support persons as they become more of who they are. In his free time he enjoys backpacking, reading, and music with family and friends.
I believe understanding and acceptance are the basis for change. In response, I seek to create a comfortable environment that frees individuals to explore and ultimately develop new ways of being. My approach considers the influence of family and environment in shaping our beliefs and behaviors. Despite the significance of these factors, clients are not bound by their past, but free to create new patterns for living. To facilitate this process, I work primarily from Solution-Focused and systemic theories. I like to incorporate behavioral goals into my practice as I think it is important to carry movement from the counseling environment into the broader context of life. Ultimately, clients are both expert and author of their lives, my goal is to listen, understand, and join in creating solutions.
