A photographer, who spends many hours driving across the western US, once gave me some advice about audio books: "always listen to a preview before you buy." You see, the voice makes a big difference if you spend much time listening to it. This habit--listening to samples--led to this podcast.
There is an interesting problem for anyone seeking the talking cure (i.e. therapy): it is difficult to actually hear a therapist talk. It's easy to find websites, with someone's polished copy, or therapist directories with brief descriptions of a therapist's approach (yes, we all write these ourselves--here's mine). Some directories and websites have even begun to include short videos. But it remains very difficult to find out how a particular therapist speaks or listens with another person in real time.
Thus, The Sound of Therapy.
It's meant to provide a sample of therapists, so you can get a sense of what it might be like to sit with them each week. If you are looking for a therapist in the Puget Sound area (e.g., Seattle, Tacoma, Bellevue, Kirkland), I hope you find it useful.
New episodes will come out every...sometimes. There will be many more...or not that many. My priority is always with my therapy patients before working on this podcast, and as a new project, it may just not work out. That said, I plan to give this project a fair chance and actually help some folks find therapists. Enjoy!
