Marty Rathbun Brand of Psychotherapy

Rathbun seems to be taking on another persona – one that is evolving as he says. And, by all appearances, it has little to do with the “counseling” he first turned to when he set up his shack at his original place of business on the Texas Gulf.

Rathbun is expressing his delusional thinking patterns, most likely the results of his electro-schock therapy.

Rathbun’s new strategy has been to feel out his audience by putting his posts in the form of questions. Then Marty posts whatever his indie followers want to hear sprinkled with a dash of psychotherapy.

Mark Marty Rathbun Thinks He’s Always Right

Mark Marty Rathbun is ready to implode under the weight of his own self-centeredness. He puts on a front that he is an extremely busy man, and he pushes that image as hard as he can.

The truth about Mark Rathbun is that he greatly exaggerates his own self importance. In the world of Rathbun, he can do no wrong. Nothing is ever his fault and Rathbun pulls all the strings.

Any sane person can take a simple moment of self reflection and realize where one has made mistakes along their path. Rathbun is incapable of this action, and only defends his words and actions no matter how insane.

Marty Rathbun lives in his own delusional, self absorbed world where he can do no wrong.

The Rat Mark Marty Rathbun

Marty Rathbun’s internet postings follow a predictable pattern.
When not venting about the “injustices” done to him (those of his own making), he sometimes features a mind-numbing post from some so-called adherent of his self-styled “indie” group. They are long and tedious diatribes written by nobodies, often chock full of basic spelling and grammar mistakes.
In a word, they are dreadful.
That these people gave up on the Church years, if not decades ago, doesn’t matter to Rathbun. It gives him fodder for his blog and, presumably, a new “counseling” client to pay him a few bucks.
But recently Rathbun’s clientele has significantly declined. There could be multiple reasons for such a decline.
First, Rathbun i sjust lazy – something that his best good buddy Mike Rinder perfected into an art form. Rathbun’s personal history since being removed from the Church in 2004 also shows us a slothful streak.

Living off an inheritance, Rathbun became a drifter, spending all his money on junk food and motels before taking up residence in the Texas Gulf area. When the money ran dry, the former external affairs staffer worked a series of odd jobs – as a newspaper cub reporter and a beer hawker in a ballpark, among others.

These jobs were perfect for Marty as they require little effort, and no resume is necessary. In fact, they were the only jobs available to someone like Marty Rathbun.

Even acquiring a girlfriend was just a few clicks away. After a couple of dates, a fake wedding, a drunken and disorderly honeymoon in New Orleans and the rest is history. Along the way “wife” Monique got a new name, “Mosey.” The derivation of that name could even have something to do with Rathbun’s laziness in “Could you mosey over to the fridge and grab me a beer, honey?” Anything’s possible.

Another reason might be his horrific “counseling abilities” and his clients have began to experience bad “counseling” and are indeed smelling a rat. As a self-proclaimed guru, Rathbun is little more than a legend in his own mind with no bona fides to establish him as a counselor of anything.
Ironically, Rathbun’s “father-in-law” James Banks is in the counseling business in New York, but at least he has an education which gives him state licensing to run his enterprise. It would be curious to learn what Banks thinks of his “son-in-law” being in the business, so to speak, given that Rathbun is just a non-certified freelancer with an Internet hook-up.
Yet another reason for Rathbun’s lack of clientele might be his “warrior” personality. Rathbun has admitted that he sees himself as a warrior who is at his best when there are wars to be waged and battles to be fought. Others might differ with that observation, pointing out that Rathbun is at his worst as a warrior because that’s when he does the most damage to innocent parties.

Whatever the case, the wars are over and the world has moved on. As for the few so-called “indies” out there, they are quickly learning that Marty Rathbun, far from being a “counselor,” is just your run-of-the-mill scam.

Mark Marty Rathbun Descent into Abyss

“Marty Rathbun’s descent into the abyss of insanity was by no means a sudden, over-the-edge plunge.Few were able to see his slow and inexorable slide into the depths of irreversible irrationality.

For years Rathbun managed to keep his madness hidden. His cleverness had grown all but demonic and what he unleashed was kept isolated and behind closed doors.

But by winter of 2004, the year of his desertion from the Church, he could no longer keep his malady veiled. The cunning was gone, the rage unchecked, and so it was that a whole host of co-workers finally bore witness to what Rathbun had become. That was the evening when all of them shockingly saw, and then promptly stopped, his attempt to kill Mike Rinder with his bare hands.

Marty Rathbun Disturbed and Institutionalized

Marty Rathbun doesn’t come from a happy home. It was a very troubled household. When Marty’s mother was pregnant with him, she was institutionalized and given electric shocks for being mentally disturbed and having extramarital affairs.

Rathbun too was drugged and electric shocked. His behavior throughout his life shows and proves he was a “shock baby.”

“I asked Carol, “my mom received electro shock treatment while I was in her womb, didn’t she?” … After several seconds, she replied, “how did you find out?”” – Marty Rathbun
