The Angry Therapist is John Kim, LMFT, is a published writer, speaker, life coach, and a co-founder of JRNI. As he was going through an expired relationship, John created a blog and started to document his journey post divorce. Even though he was a licensed therapist, John preferred casual over clinical in his approach.
He blogged about his shortcomings, revelations, and his views on relationships, the self help business, and the world. He found CrossFit, bought a motorcycle, and started coaching people in unconventional ways. Through this process, he came up with his own concepts. He realized that there was a new way to help others, combining what he learned in therapy school with life coaching and using technology to be mobile and create online communities, but most importantly, he took a very different approach, one frowned upon by the rigid and antiquated therapy world. He practiced transparency.
People keep asking him why he calls himself The Angry Therapist. His reply: It’s my way of saying I’m human.
