Meet Our Staff
Todd Noffsinger, MAE, LPCC-S
My name is Todd Noffsinger and I am the Clinical Director of the Talley Family Counseling Clinic. I am a graduate of WKU’s Marriage & Family Therapy program (2008) and completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Kentucky in Corporate Communications. I spent seven years working in finance prior to returning to graduate school and have since worked in a variety of settings including residential, community, and private practice settings. Most of my post-graduate experience is in higher education and private practice working with adolescents and adults as well as couples. I view therapy as a partnership between client and therapist and enjoy working with anxiety/trauma, addictions, phase of life concerns, and personal growth. My approach to therapy is influenced by psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, post-modern, and systems perspectives. I hope to establish a sense of comfort and safety within the therapy room and view the client as the author and expert of their life—I hope to join and support persons as they become more of who they are. In my free time I enjoy backpacking, reading, and music with family and friends.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Kentucky Wesleyan College in 2017. My particular interest in my future career is in eating disorders. The therapy approach I utilize is cognitive behavioral therapy.
