My goal is to promote psychological wellness through connecting and promoting the health of the body, mind, and spirit...while integrating traditional psychological therapies.

“I see the best in people, and can help you see the best in yourself. Whether you have new challenges in life or a desire to live more wholly, I can give you the tools to achieve new balance.”

Dr. Todd Giardina is a licensed psychologist practicing in Coral Gables, Florida.

With more than 15 years of experience, he is well-recognized and acclaimed as the only male psychologist in South Florida who focuses on women's issues such as identity, self-esteem, communication, relationships, body image, or life changes. Dr. Giardina’s approach has proven to help women find a balance in their life by overcoming emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual challenges. Through a transformational (or integrated) model he encourages women to find and use their natural strengths, and empowers them to be true to their authentic selves.

Dr. Giardina speaks and understands the female language, yet he can give his patient's a much-needed male’s point of view without the clouded male ego. This approach has proven to be extremely successful for his female patients who seek outside help, and also want to understand a male’s perspective. He is funny, approachable, and nonjudgmental; nevertheless, he is challenging and will give his patients tough love when needed. Dr. Giardina believes the first step in healing yourself is self-awareness, and taking responsibility for the problems in your life. He is like a personal fitness coach who will push you to meet your goals, help you stay on track, but ultimately it is your commitment towards your own healing that will make you physically, mentally, and spiritually stronger.

While not in a therapy session, Dr. Giardina spends time with his wife and partner of 20+ years, as well as his young daughter and delightful dachshund. He has a passion for fitness, wellness, and helping others reach a higher level of consciousness and unlock their full potential. Additionally, Dr. Giardina is also on the Board of Directors of Miami Bridge Youth and Family Services. He was born and raised in a suburb of New Orleans, Louisiana. He received his undergraduate education at the University of Texas at Austin, and completed his doctoral program at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
