The Dr. Dodd Podcast

Dr. Dodd provides the unique integration of being well trained in Theology and Psychology/Counseling. This podcast comes as an extension of his many years of ongoing ministry… of private practice Christian counseling, public speaking (holding both conferences and workshops), and consulting work with private corporations.  Through a powerful combination, that utilizes his training in theology and psychology, as well as real life experience…each podcast is an effort to encourage, provide hope, inform and challenge individuals with grounded, insightful and practical principles.  “It is simply an effort to help individuals navigate everyday struggles, issues and relationships that can often be very difficult and challenging. All of this…to bring honor and glory to God!”
