I Believe

No matter what type of distress your relationship is in, there is room for hope.  As you learn that every symptom from loneliness to betrayal is due to an attempt to protect yourself from psychological harm, you can discover new ways to open up and heal with your partner.  In over 30 years of helping couples thrive, I have seen that with my guidance and my clients' courage, they can have the relationship they long for.  Don't blame yourself; we have not learned how to have that wonderful relationship because in almost all cases, our role models were lacking  (and so were theirs).  Let me be your  tour guide so that I can take you on an interpersonaL safari that leads to healing, passion and love.

“Todd magically and with acute awareness of all of the details brought my family back together.

My husband and I had been struggling with a major family issue for almost 4 years and after 10 hours of intensive counseling, my mom is back in our life in a more connected and loving way than I ever thought possible. Todd’s style is razor sharp and yet gentle keeping in mind that everyone comes from their own place with
their own experience.

I got my mom back and I am forever grateful.”

“Todd has been amazing for the health of my marriage. I interviewed several therapists before choosing Todd. He has proven to be a very effective marriage counselor and life coach. My husband and I are happier after 13 years of marriage than when we first fell in love. I have recommended Todd to many of my friends and he has done wonders to help with infidelity, intimacy and emotional issues within their marriages as well. I highly recommend him.”

My sessions with Todd are the single best gift I have given myself

“I am a walking ambassador for Todd Creager.

I have been married for 24 years. In November of 2014, I hit bottom. I needed help. Actually, I needed help for some time; but being a man, I thought I could handle my problem. The emotional turmoil was getting worse not better. My wife had become collateral damage from my emotional volatility. I could not live with that anymore, so I decided to get help.

I found Todd through a LinkedIn contact. I explained my situation and he told me that he could help me. I connected to his confidence and his direct no-nonsense approach.

Todd helped me understand that to correct the problem I created in mymarriage; I first had to understand the relationship I had with myself. Yes, Todd is a counselor; but from the first session, I felt as if I were talking to a guide who would walk with me during my transformation. Much like Virgil is to Dante when he descended into Hell.

There was work to be done and sometimes the revelation was not pretty. Every session concluded with an action item to modify my thinking or behavior. He also helped me realize that I was always moving towards my most dominant thought and that we are not aware of our limiting beliefs or self-destructive thinking. Todd helped me to see my limiting beliefs and I have been working hard to change them.

Todd also says that marriage is a 200 percent commitment. Both husband and wife need to be committed 100 percent. That being said he also helped me understand that all I can do is control my attitude and my behavior.

After 10 sessions, I felt that we had identified all the issues that were creating marital turmoil and that I have the tools to have a better
relationship with myself, my wife, and my children. I now see Todd on a monthly basis as a life coach, which brings me to my next point.

As men, we don’t want to let anyone know that we don’t have all the answers, or that we don’t have our shit together. Especially other men.
But that is a mistake because I don’t know what I don’t know. After going through this process, I highly recommend that any man at any age
find other men to walk with through this journey of life. We are all gifted and all have something to share.

That being said my sessions with Todd are the single best gift I have given myself. I do know that all men have said:’I wish I had someone to talk to’ Give yourself a gift and call Todd.”
