๐Ÿ‘‹ Hi! I go to therapy, ask me anything.


In March 2021, at 38 years old, I had my first-ever therapy appointment.


Last week was World Mental Health Day and though I've spoken privately to a few friends about the process thus far, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to simply say, publicly:


#itsoktonotbeok




As the saying goes:

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."


I had been silently struggling for a few years with how to cope with an assortment of issues I'd been dealing with. A close friend had periodically encouraged me to talk to someone but I had never tried therapy before and I was afraid, embarrassed, anxious, and frankly, just not ready.



And that's the thing.

You can't do it until you're ready.



But after feeling like complete shit over a particularly tough weekend this past spring, I decided that MY WAY just wasn't working anymore -- and I felt ready to reach out and actually get some help on detangling a zillion things.


I researched several online platforms and eventually decided to try the free trial at BetterHelp. After a little trial & error, I was matched with an awesome counselor. We meet virtually a few times a month, and we've also done worksheets, journaling, and more. I am already seeing improvement in my life and I know that it is one of the best things I could have done for myself.

I am not a counselor, but you can DM me w/ any questions about my newbie journey through therapy, or about my experience w/ BetterHelp, or just to chat.


Social media isnโ€™t real.
We are all dealing with our own shit, and youโ€™re not alone.

So even if youโ€™re not ready, and are still silently struggling like I was for years โ€” Iโ€™m sending you love & support, and letting you know that it was so much easier and more helpful than I expected.
