Hello there, my name is Todd Esperance and this is my private practice, Hope, Healing & Transcending. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and hold a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Bridgeport. I have been trained in individual, couple, family, children, crisis, and group settings.
I am devoted to facilitating an environment where you can be fully seen and heard, perhaps, for the first time. My approach towards individual services is the evidenced-based work of Dr. Aaron Beck, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a cognitive model that proposes dysfunctional thinking (which influences mood and behavior) is common to all psychological disturbances (Beck, 2011). I seek to reinforce your hope, invite healing, and support your transcendence beyond the hold of depression, anxiety, interpersonal conflicts, self-worthlessness and more.
In order to support and be present with you, I prioritize the following restorative practices; reading, journaling, meditating, kayaking, sleeping, immersing in an anime, gaming, creative writing, exercising with my dear friend Luna, and sharing experiences with friends and family.
If you have decided to transcend towards your ideal self, contact me.
