Todd Byrd is a counselor, minister, and writer.  After serving in church staff positions and as a pastor and chaplain, Todd pursued a new path in life as a professional counselor.  His work as a counselor is focused on helping older adolescents and men deal with life’s struggles and difficulties with a particular emphasis on the unique challenges faced by men.  Todd provides individual, marital and family counseling, counseling for relationship concerns, men’s issues, adjustment disorders, depression, anxiety, spirituality, communication, intimacy, attachment, and self-esteem difficulties. In addition, he works with men and couples whose lives have been affected by sexual addiction.  Todd is the founder of ReBuilding Bridges, a ministry affiliated with Cornerstone, which seeks to help those whose lives have been damaged by sexual addiction to make healthy connections with God, with others, and with themselves.  As a writer, Todd seeks to integrate the concept of recovery with the Christian principle of redemption and publishes his thoughts via a blog at https://rebuildingbridges.wordpress.com.  The great joy of Todd’s life is being Deb’s husband and parent of their six children in their blended family.
