  1. Thank you for Checking out Through a Therapist’s Eyes… We love doing the show weekly for you covering most things mental health and substance abuse-related. I have made my life’s work doing therapy and decided it was time to share my 25 years experience with this unique perspective I have developed in that time… thus the name: through a therapist’s Eyes.

    I like to say at the top of our show that this is the Human Emotional Experience… Let’s figure this thing out together, so join us and the journey to do so. I think we do a good job of blowing up stigmas and stereotypes and disseminate information on our show.
