Most people think of therapy as an activity that is only necessary to work through painful trauma and mental illness; something you start doing when you have reached a critical breaking point in your life. It’s often what we are taught as children- to “suck it up” unless the situation is dire. But who decided that this exclusivity was healthy or safe for the average person?

You may remember Hailey Kanigan from #TherapyTalks episode 4. For this episode, she has returned to normalize therapy and prioritize mental health in our lifestyles. Hailey and Barb debunk some misconceptions about therapy and feeling “less than” when we ask for help. In situations where we are unable to identify and respond to our emotions and feelings in helpful ways, therapy can be the golden ticket to learning healthy coping strategies.

Join us as we uncover the value of therapy, discuss the taboo aspects of seeking help and reshape our perspectives.
