About Me

My name is Janet Meredith Todd, and I am a Christian Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I received my Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Virginia Intermont College in Bristol, VA and a Master of Arts in Counseling from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.

I have been employed for 40 years beginning in 1981 as a Social Worker at a county Department of Social Services in Child Protective Services, Foster Care/Adoption, and preparing Custody Investigations for the County Juvenile Court System. I have also been employed in community service agencies as a hospital social worker, Child Abuse Resistance Coordinator, Individual/ Family Therapist in a local school system, In Home Family Therapist Supervisor in a Child and Adolescent Unit, and Director for United Methodist Home for Children. As an Adjunct Faculty member with Virginia Commonwealth University, I am certified and trained to teach Parenting Skills, The Family as a System, Emotional Disorders, Principles of Human Services, and Measuring Client Change.

I am a native of rural Southwest Virginia, have resided in this area my entire life and have been in private practice for 17 years serving in my community. I have been married for 43 years, have two adult daughters and one granddaughter. While in private practice I advertised as a Christian Counselor. I am a firm believer if you are a Christian and are need in of counseling for whatever reason, it is important you seek a Christian Counselor of like faith. I use Bibical principles to apply in our daily living and relationship to our family and friends. I am semi-retired and will only be working two days per week. My days of availability are Monday and Tuesday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EDT.

Contacting a counselor to assist you and/or your family may be a difficulty decision. However my goal is to use my knowledge, skills, abilities, and life experiences to be of service to you. I look forward to working with you.
