About Your Instructor

Hi there! I’m Emma McAdam, I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I love helping people change. But I get it that understanding mental health can be confusing and stressful, but there is hope. You can change your brain and resolve painful emotions – and I can walk you through that process.

I’ve been working in the field of change and growth since 2004. I’ve worked in settings like Juvenile Corrections, Adventure Therapy programs, High Schools, Wilderness Therapy programs, an Eating Disorder Treatment Center, a Residential Treatment Center, and Outpatient Therapy.

Therapy is this awesome process where two people sit down together and work through a challenge in a personalized, supportive environment of growth. And although these resources are education and not therapy, I’ve seen these videos make a positive impact on thousands of my students.

I love helping people change and I’m willing to be creative in how I help that happen. I take a solution-centered approach with an emphasis on learning skills to help people find love, purpose, and joy in life. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring the world with my husband and daughters, spending time outdoors, photography, making stuff, and learning new things.
