Meet an Okay-ish Therapist
Maryellen is an Okay-ish Therapist.
From being a 21 year old drug and alcohol counselor with no experience, to getting fired from a supervisory job where I was in way over my head, to owning by own business at the age of 26 (I still own it, check it out), to basically fumbling through my career…I felt like I was doing it all wrong.
But then I realized, those are the things that actually made me a good therapist. Those are the things that get to the point of mental health, the deeper level of mental health.
We are currently living in a crippling self improvement culture. This era of self care, is great…but it’s often making things worse. It’s adding pressure to be perfect and it’s simplifying true, deep mental health concerns.
That’s where I come in. I want to challenge our thoughts and ideals on mental health, educate about what mental health truly is, and yeah, talk about how we can use the culture of self-improvement for our benefit rather than our demise.
But I am not going to tell you to be perfect. I just want you to be Okay-ish. Just like I am. I’m here to educate, explain, support, and yes, even empower, you to become your most Okay-ish self.
