Depression, Anxiety and other forms of mental illness can be debilitating. But real growth and healing is possible, you can change your brain!


 Therapy in a Nutshell's courses teach you the skills to change painful thoughts, work through difficult emotions, and lay the foundation for mental health.


"This course has been exceptionally helpful. I have been on stress leave while working through depression. It has been a tremendous resource to compliment my therapy and allows me to get more from my weekly sessions as I can use the time to talk about what I have learned from the course in addition to the help and advice of my therapist. THANK YOU!!"

Hi there, 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 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.
