Dr. Todd Adamson, ABPP

Board Certified in Clinical Psychology
Choosing the right therapist is an important process and can impact your therapy experience immensely. I aim to be straightforward and practical, while providing a relaxed and natural flow.

I am the founder of Elite Psychology Group and am board certified in clinical psychology (ABPP). I am also a diplomate in cognitive therapy and certified member of the Academy of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies. As a board certified psychologist, I represent a small percentage of psychologists (4%) in North America that have attained the highest level of professional and clinical competence. For over 15 years, I have worked with individuals, families, and organizations to identify barriers to well-being and support growth and optimal wellness.
I work with adults, adolescents and families on a range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions and relationships. I help people to think and relate in new ways that are more balanced and realistic. I also guide people to change dysfunctional patterns of communicating with family, partners and co-workers and provide effective strategies that result in deeper and more meaningful relationships. Lastly, I support those who have experienced trauma regain a sense of control and peace.

As a track coach and former competitive runner, I have a unique skill set for sports psychology skills and performance coaching. This includes working with youth athletes competing in a variety of sports to college student and professional athletes competing at the highest level.

As an undergraduate, I studied classical guitar and a few years later, studied and performed improv comedy throughout Los Angeles. I utilize these experiences to help actors and musicians stay focused and present for auditions and performances. Lastly, I combine my business experience working in a variety of environments with managers and executives to support business professionals develop and maintain a growth mindset for business success.

My clinical approach is based in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness. Generally, this means that I help to identify the thoughts running through our heads that lead to feelings of anxiety, stress or depression. From there, we work together to change or adjust these patterns of thinking to be more balanced and helpful. I also work with adults and families to identify patterns and dynamics that lead to unhealthy interactions and work to change these patterns through a variety of techniques that are based on the most current and empirically-supported methods. This includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), and Mindfulness.

Over the years, I have taught at the University of Southern California and Antioch University. I have also engaged in clinical research at the Long Beach VA Medical Center and provided clinical expertise within the pharmaceutical industry while serving as the Associate Medical for Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Science 37, a virtual clinical trial company.

I am an expert at using virtual reality to recreate components of a traumatic incident to confront symptoms of PTSD. I have worked for many years treating service members and veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan using the Bravemind platform developed by the
UCS Institute for Creative Technology. In addition, I also train clinicians at VA medical centers throughout the country to use the Bravemind platform. As an Emory University Peer-Reviewed PE Consultant, I also provide consultation to mental health providers learning prolonged exposure therapy.

I received my B.A. from The University of Georgia and M.A. and Psy.D. from California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked in finance in a variety of capacities. The demanding nature of the industry exposed me to the unique stressors and challenges individuals encounter in high-pressure environments. With a rich background in finance and a deep understanding of the human psyche, I offer a unique and empathetic perspective to those seeking support. I am adept at helping professionals navigate the complexities of both professional and personal spheres, drawing on my experiences to provide practical insights and emotional guidance.

I meet each client with an open mind, dedication, and passion to help them reach their highest potential. Vulnerability is not easy for anyone. Throughout the course of therapy, I provide an environment where clients feel heard, understood, and supported while working through the challenges inherent in growth.
Finding the right therapist can be a challenging task for many people. I strive to be understanding, compassionate, and comprehensive in my approach. I tailor your therapy to fit your individual needs and set goals collaboratively so our work is meaningful and progress feels attainable.

I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and families navigating life’s daily stressors. In working with children and adolescents, I build trust and connection to help them to understand their emotions and behaviors. From there, we work together to develop ways to improve focus, attention, and mood and reduce worry as it relates to school, friends, and family. 

I also work closely with families and parents, including one-on-one meetings throughout the course of therapy and parenting training on behavior.

My work with individuals includes relieving stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and work-life balance. I utilize a variety of approaches, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Gottman Couple Therapy.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Marketing from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois, and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University.
