Meet Your Instructor
Hi, I'm Emma McAdam
I’m a licensed marriage and family therapist, and I love helping people change. I know that understanding mental health can be confusing and stressful. I also know that there’s hope! Your brain is wired to change, and deep healing is possible. My mission is to walk with people through that process.
I make mental health skills more accessible through YouTube videos and online courses. Therapy in a Nutshell is built around the idea that small and simple steps can turn into massive change and growth. I don’t just help people get feeling better; I help people get better at feeling.
I’ve been working in the field of change and growth since 2004. I got my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Utah State University, and I’m currently licensed in the state of Utah. I’ve worked in settings like juvenile corrections, wilderness therapy programs, residential treatment centers, and outpatient therapy.
Here is what students are saying:
I loved the course! I started practicing some of those exercises and changing some habits. I would recommend this course not just to people going through depression or anxiety, but everyone should take this course for a holistic life.
Very uplifting delivery and accessible content - gives you simple adjustments that you can start implementing straight away and explains clearly and in a way that resonates why they're beneficial.
