My Personal Therapy Journey
My therapy journey started as a child - and by that to say, I started by directly avoiding therapy and intentionally not going to see anyone for many years. Despite experiencing the passing of a very close family member, I always felt it was weird, stigmatized, and something that 'I didn't need'.
I've since experienced other mental health challenges with myself and those close to me, and when I graduated from college, realized that it was finally time to take action. Since that point, I've connected with a therapist, volunteered with local mental health awareness groups, and provided 1:1 support to friends and colleagues.
Marvin is the next step in my journey, hoping to impact mental health care on a broader scale. I'm excited to work together to build a new type support system, one that combats the stigma of seeking care and makes you feel good while you use it.
