Brene Brown, Unlocking Us Podcast

Welcome. I'm glad you made it here. Taking the first step to talk with someone can feel overwhelming or challenging, maybe even scary, but you've already made big steps by finding yourself here. There are many reasons that someone may seek out therapy, and I'm here to explore those reasons with you, to provide tools and ideas as we work together, and to create with you a space to grow your inner strengths.

I provide both short-term mental health counseling and longer-term psychotherapy for adults, and adolescents 12 and up in South Seattle and Auburn.  Contact me for a free 20 minute phone consultation. 


Permission to Feel, Marc Brackett
