ABOUT BLUNT THERAPY
You gave us the unvarnished truth about [depression]... Your essay helped me, in the fact that I am not the only one. I read some of my life in your story. I can see how you can inspire others.

Blunt Therapy is a Blog about Human Behavior and Mental Health. We have both personal stories and professional articles about Counseling, Mental Health, Addictions, Relationships, and Parenting. What sets us apart from many other mental health blogs out there is that Blunt Therapy is edited by a licensed mental health professional who is well-trained and experienced in these subject areas.

Blunt Therapy was established in 2018 by Randy Withers, who is a Board-Certified Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Clinical Addictions Specialist in North Carolina who specializes in the trauma-informed treatment of co-occurring disorders.

The goal here is to educate and inform our readers about the types of things that professional counselors and psychotherapists deal with professionally on a daily basis – things like mental illness, dysfunctional families, toxic relationships, and substance abuse.

To produce a blog about mental health in order to promote awareness, education, and frank discussions on these and others topics, including counseling, substance abuse, relationships, and parenting. In short, we hope that you learn a thing or two. 

 

To provide personal essays and professionally written and well-researched articles about human behavior, counseling, mental health, substance abuse treatment, relationships, and parenting.

I ant to create a Blog about mental health that you’ll come back to again and again and again.

Topics related to the following categories: Mental Health, Addiction, Counseling, Relationships, and Parenting.

Practical application. Professional Experience. Evidenced-Based Practices. Pragmatic Interventions. Realistic Expectations. Well-Placed Humor. Original Thought. Frank discussions. A Blog about mental health that educates and entertains.

My professional values are informed by The Twelve Step Model, Motivational Interviewing, and Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy. I believe that change in our life happens when we change our thoughts. Many of us hang on to negative, outdated, or otherwise self-defeating belief systems that must be challenged and defeated before recovery is possible.
