Todd Kestin

Teen Coach & Mentor

Todd Kestin is a mentor, counselor, therapist, and social worker. He specializes in helping teens and young adults foster healthy and meaningful life relationships and create a greater sense of meaning in their world. Todd utilizes counseling and mentoring programs that are highly individualized to meet the exact needs of his clients. It is his firm belief that the essence of an individual at his or her best – at any age – is predicated on their ability to form and sustain positive and meaningful relationships. Todd graduated from the University of Arizona in 2000 and earned a Masters Degree in Social Work from Loyola University in Chicago in 2005. After receiving extensive training in the field, he was left with one thought: something is missing. What he has learned through experience is that specific “treatments” don’t always fix specific “problems.” Todd learned to shift attention from this intense focus on “problems” to building healthy, productive, meaningful relationships, and he began to see dramatic changes occurring. He created his practice on this premise. Todd is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in suburban Chicago. Visit him at or follow him on Twitter @toddkestin.
