    I missed this!I’m from Seattle and I wish I was there.

    Its so important to teach the lesson of therapy because a vast percentage of people have this bias about therapy that prevents them from getting help – help that could help many problem areas of their life!

    Its good to know Goodtherapy took this initiation.Cheers!

    I am sure that this was a great way to reach out to the community in a meaningful way, get your name out there, and make connections that are going to mean a lot of things to a lot of people. I wish that where I lived there was something like this, but alas, we are a little more closed minded than what I presume Washington state to be.
