Todd Arvidson, MA, LMFT

Todd Arvidson


Todd Arvidson was born in Weisbaden, Germany and moved to the United States in 1972. He was raised in the town of Penn Valley, CA where hunting, fishing, and anything outdoors became his playground. In the 90's Todd moved back to northern California to return to school where he began his pursuit of a degree in psychology and his own pursuit in personal growth. Trinity International University was where he continued his pursuit and achievement of a master's degree in Counseling Psychology in 1996. Trinity was the highlight of his educational endeavor and there he learned to integrate his faith and the science of psychology. Todd worked in residential treatment for youth in the Chicago area for 12 years as well as maintaining a private practice for individuals, groups, and families who wanted to pursue change and personal growth. California was home--and he moved back with his wife and two girls in 2003. Todd has 20 years of experience in counseling and is committed to collaborating with those who seek professional help. He has passion for the process of therapy, compassion for those that are hurting, and is willing to come along side anyone who is seeking growth and change.
