This Isn’t Therapy... it's a podcast about it!

Therapy themes are everywhere you look— they’re in your relationships, in the culture, and yes, inside of you, Mary! Each week, Jake Ernst and Simon Paluck peel back the therapy curtain to discuss the very things people are talking to their therapists about. Anxiety. Boundaries. People Pleasing. Their narcissistic boss. No topic is off limits! Whether it be a #lovelylistener story submission, an article, or something straight from pop-culture, Jake and Simon will explore a therapy theme through a casual, insightful, and (often times) funny conversation. Hello, hi! Come on in - the door is open! 

The hosts:
Jake: @mswjake
Simon: @directedbysimon
The pod: @notatherapypodcast
