“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”– Carl G. Jung 

About Dr. ZODA

I was born and raised in St. Charles, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. I received my Bachelors  in Chemistry from Illinois Wesleyan University in 1974 and then graduated from Florida State University with a Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1981.

During my own individual therapy, I realized my passion was people, not molecules. I returned to FSU to obtain a Ph.D. in Marriage & Family Therapy in 1988 and shortly after established a private practice in Tallahassee, FL  where I still practice today. In addition to the practice of Marriage & Family Therapy, I have extensive experience with mood and anxiety disorders, as well healing from childhood trauma and abuse.

I operate as the Senior Advisor within New Rules Collective and provide support by assisting with development of our internal culture. As a Lead Consultant within our firm, I offer decades of experience as the firm’s lead communicator in the field of Emotional Intelligence.  

With my wife, Carla, I have a blended family of three children. I have six  grandchildren, four of whom are quadruplets. 
My passion is to bring resolution to individuals, relationships and society.
