Mac Partlow, Therapist

Mac Partlow, M.A. is a psychotherapist in Seattle, WA. He has two graduate degrees in counseling psychology. Mac draws upon both his professional training as well as his own life experiences of challenges and growth. Like any other person, he faced periods of anxiety, depression, and sometimes feeling stuck in either his personal and professional life. Mac is fond of telling clients that he reminds myself on a daily basis that he is not the Buddha and because of this has done many years of his therapy and still has a therapist to whom he can hold himself accountable. From all of his past and current experience as a client in relationship and addiction counseling himself, he has some strong beliefs of what he wants his clients to experience in a therapy session. First, confidentiality, as defined in Washington State Law, is absolute. Since the therapeutic experience is an intimately experimental environment, you cannot be expected to practice taking risks with new behaviors if it does not feel safe. He believes very firmly in the counseling dictum that "the client always leads." That means what is most important to you at the moment is the first thing we work on. It is also his job to help remember and integrate the larger themes of your life into the "here and now." Your job is to supply the content; his job is to help you make the meaning. Secondly, this is an environment where you are encouraged to practice and refine those new behaviors and perspectives. The therapeutic environment allows you to do this before actually taking them back into your relationship as well as your work and personal life. Thirdly, it is his job to, the tools of education, reframing, coaching, and feedback. Mac is not a passive counselor because, as a client himself, he usually benefit most from a psychotherapist who actively engages him with these tools. He knows he likes walking out of a therapy session feeling accomplished and having heard the same sentiment repeated by his clients.
