A bit about Therapist Uncensored:
Therapist Uncensored is a top-rated podcast free to the public which shares the science of attachment, relational neuroscience and trauma in understandable tidbits. Ann Kelley PhD and Sue Marriott LCSW, CGP are professional therapists who co-host the show, and they work hard studying, practicing and teaching this material so that it is accessible as widely as possible. In addition, they bring guest experts onto the show to bridge the audience with thought leaders in the field and keep their listeners informed and up to date.
Importantly, they also offer a rich online community primarily through a few Facebook channels, but recently they are branching out into other social media platforms. Finally, they offer a comprehensive course on modern attachment and neuroscience, and occasionally produce blogs about supporting material. Frankly they’ve been too busy for the blog side but get many requests to publish posts.
A bit about you:
You have a passion for learning and teaching and have something unique to explore or to share about how attachment and relational neuroscience can help improve humans.
You like to create content because it educates and inspires.
You are NOT primarily trying to sell yourself or something you produce.
You do not misrepresent your professional credentials because you don’t have to here. We recognize that healers come in all forms and some don’t have letters behind their name. We keep it open to acknowledge voices from all backgrounds and not limit ourselves to a group that some brilliant minds might not fit in.
We are devoted to our listeners and thus have extremely high standards for what we will publish – if you submit something, our editorial board will determine whether or not to publish it.

What Happens When We Accept Your Article
If your article is accepted, you will hear from us directly. You permanently retain the copyright to the blog post, but we ask that you not republish the article in its entirety elsewhere. We reserve the right to make minor edits to your article, including the headline, to conform to Therapist Uncensored standards – however we will request your approval of any significant changes prior to publication.
By submitting an article, you give us the right to publish it with full attribution to you, and to use it within our marketing materials. By submitting you agree to this use of the material, but we may also ask you to sign a release to this effect.
We are bummed that there is no financial compensation for guest contributions at this time – but you will get great kharma and the pleasure of knowing you’ve made a difference. In addition it may serve to create a relationship with us that leads to you being a guest on the show depending on topic.
The bad news – due to the volume of our mail traffic we regretfully cannot reply to everyone who has submitted. Most likely if you have not followed the guidelines outlined on this page, your work may not be chosen and you may not hear back from us. This is not a snub, it’s just the reality of the volume of work coming in and out at this time.
