Go Seahawks!

We interrupt our usual flow of informative, educational, entertaining, and enlightening blog posts to bring you this simple message:

GO SEAHAWKS!

Pardon our scratchy throats from screaming our heads off on Sunday during the Superbowl. I (Imei) freely admit I scream like a girl. Which is Seattle Speak for #beastmode.

    Around this time, I typically write a blog post focusing on relationships. New Year’s Day triggers an evaluative mechanism, where people question whether they are getting the most out of their closest relationships and routines.

    Let’s mix it up a bit, shall we?

    We came up with something we haven’t offered through our services at Seattle Direct Counseling since I first opened my doors for business in 2006. On February 11, 2015, right before Valentine’s Day, we’d invite you (Seattle people only) to consider being a member of our first therapy group, Life Transitions.

      We’re Back!

      Squee! It’s a baby wallaby, courtesy of Matt Inman’s petting zoo rental on NYE. So over-the-top adorable!

      And…. we’re back!

      If you’re a first time visitor, welcome! And Happy New Year!

      Returning visitors: did you miss us? We had some technical difficulties at the end of December involving the company where our domain is registered. They were able to fix the problem, just not in my timing <insert Imei’s impatient foot tapping here>.

      Very soon, we will have the January 2015 blog post for the month up. In the meantime, here’s me (Imei) holding a baby wallaby. So cute! A friend in the community, Matt Inman (The Oatmeal) invited people over to his home to check out and enjoy the petting zoo he rented for a couple of hours on NYE. I can think of few better ways to ring in the New Year than cooing over cute, fuzzy baby animals, like chinchillas, guinea pigs, fuzzy bunnies, and a wallaby.

      We have a few services we’re introducing to Seattle Direct Counseling this year, so please check back at least monthly to hear the latest. We’re here to help you design a terrific pathway to discovering your most satisfying life through understanding your past to make a better future.
