  • To all the therapists I've seen before. I've been going to therapy for nearly two years now and it's something I'll always prioritize. I'm so happy with the therapist I have now HOWEVER it took me a long time to find the right one. In this video I chat about all the therapists I've seen and explain what I didn't like and what I learned. Hopefully this video can help anyone who's searching for a therapist and encourages you to not give up. ------------------------------------------ 💎 Subscribe and become a Jem today: http://bit.ly/2iLayjY 💎 ------------------------------------------ ➫ Shop my clothing line Eggie: http://eggie.us ------------------------------------------ ➫ Instagram: http://instagram.com/imjennim ➫ Twitter: http://twitter.com/imjennim ➫ Facebook: http://facebook.com/imjennim ➫ Spotify: http://bit.ly/2rctq05 ➫ Snapchat: http://snapchat.com/add/jennimsnaps ------------------------------------------ ❐ MUSIC ❏ ➫ DJ Grumble's Soundcloud: http://bit.ly/1ElnUag ➫ DJ Grumble's Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2s5bRD7 ------------------------------------------ FTC: This video is NOT sponsored.

    Your current therapist reminds me of the one I had for 3 years. She never really gave me any straight up advice, which kind of drove me crazy at times, but she let me arrive to the conclusions by myself. She was great :)

    I would love for you to share some ways to cope with psycological issues. Everyone has different experiences in therapy, and not everyone finds a solution, but if you have found some solutions for yourself, maybe they can help us who haven’t found one yet :)

    I've had the same qualms for seeing a therapist because of differences in culture. As an Asian person, we put so much pressure on ourselves to meet expectations as well as take care of our family. There is an obligation that we are raised to have to take care of our parents and family. I completely love that you shared this. Therapy is really an amazing thing. <3

    Hey Jenn! Absolutely love your travel & relationship videos, but this one on mental health and therapy feels really special. I was a psych student for 5 or 6 years and for most of that time, I had no idea that a lot of the mental health issues we discussed in class actually related to me. I only sought therapy once I was away from home and studying abroad. My first therapist was...very much not for me, but our schedules didn't line up so I was placed with a different one. She was absolutely fantastic, and so was the therapist I ended up seeing back in the U.S. (All of my therapists were white, but my last two were really good at letting me speak about my life without white-washing it or ignoring the cultural aspects._

    As a person of color, I think it's incredibly important that we hear other POC sharing their mental health journeys and therapy experiences. So often, it seems like people of color are just brought up with this "grin and bear it" attitude. But that doesn't mean we have to bear it alone. So thank you Jenn! <3 And I'm glad to hear you've made progress. I have too.

    I'm glad you made this video, Jen. It just shows not all therapist are great. Whenever I tell people about my experience with a therapist, they couldn't believe me. I felt so upset about that, just because they have a degree doesn't mean they're always going to be a good therapist. There are good lawyers, bad lawyers, good cops, bad cops, good doctors, bad doctors and some people are just blinded by the bad one. My therapist exposed my personal life to my school and even called the 911 saying I wrote a suicidal letter when I did not write anything to her. I just stopped seeing her because I felt uncomfortable with her. She decide to revenge on me by calling 911, getting the cops visit my mom, that was so uncalled for. I'm glad you found the right therapist, Jen!

    Pleeeease make more videos like this! I've always loved your channel and videos, and this made me feel so much better about having mental health issues. Not enough people talk about it, and it's so refreshing and helpful for my own experience when others open up.
    I'm mexican-american first generation, and so I can relate to owing your parents. I've had to leave a couple of wh1te therapists because they just didn't understand that sort of culture. I'm still trying to find someone, and this video gave me some hope. <3

    Hi Jen, I'm so glad I saw your video. I'm having the same issue/feeling with you. I'm a chinese who married to a British and live in the UK over 12 years. I feel I own my parents everything and I feel guilty that I'm not with them. They are living in China, although we go to see them every year. But I feel failed to be a good daughter.

    Wow this is actually really helpful, like, in my experience I just went to the first therapist I found and didn't even took the time to say: is this person good for what I need or not. I went first to a psychiatrist and he just gave me pills, we didn't have more than 30 minutes to talk and I could see him just once a month. After a year he realized I needed therapy with a psychologist, but she sucked so much I just stopped going to both of them. I got so mad these people were so tired and busy and were just working like robots I just told to myself I am gonna recover on my own. Just deal with it, and stay strong. Of course it wasn't the best decision, for a few years I felt ok (that was on 2012) but since last year to now, I know I am under so much shit I really need to go to therapy. My problem is that I am poor so I can't afford better therapist and I am most likely get the same kind of public therapist with just a few minutes a month to talk and feel unlistened... but this actually helps, now I know what to look for on a therapist and hopefuly I will be able to go to a better one in the future.

    I'm so glad you've found the right therapist! That is so important... And I'm sure therapy can be so healing with the right person :) Because of my circumstances I could only try text therapy, and honestly I don't think that the platform is bad in any way. it's actually cool how you have time to think and write down what you really mean, and also have time to think about what your therapist said, it's just that in my case they didn't match/were bad therapists. The first one felt like she didn't listen to my feelings at all, just went through a checklist of what she should ask and pushed me to "move on" sort of... The next one was just letting me talk and didn't even pay attention to what I was saying and what happened. After a year I was in a better place though and tried again and it seemed really great, but then she basically just kept saying the things I told her back to me like "Oh I see you're getting better. That's great." and that's it basically. The last straw was when she said that my relationship with my narcissistic ex that I was talking about for a month "started well, but then he was just confused and ended up hurting me" and when I asked her how to get my self-esteem back she said "surround yourself with good people. But you need to have confidence in yourself first." and didn't even try to even start helping me get there. Like, great, thanks for that, now I'm all healed...??
    It's so exhausting to open yourself up deeply to people and then get really uncomfortable results. I know it made me incapable of doing that anymore :/ I still support therapy though, I can see the vast potentials of it! Anyone with a good therapist, appreciate it, it's so enviable.

    my mental health journey has also been a long and tiring one and i am so relieved that i found a therapist that i can work with! finding an asian-american therapist was also really important to me when looking for a therapist. another commenter mentioned this, but with white therapists, i spend more time explaining the values & beliefs behind my culture(s) vs. getting the help i need.... never mind the fact that cultural identity is something i already struggle with. i live in the midwest, and in the state i live in, i had a really hard time finding an asian-american therapist that took my insurance. however, one of the therapists that i contacted provided me with a list of therapists that she knew personally and took my insurance. and that's how i found the therapist i currently see :) if you encounter a therapist that you feel like understands you but cannot see them for whatever reason, i highly highly recommend asking them for recommendations.

    As an Asian American therapist myself, I agree that sometimes clients just need to take the risk to shop around before they find a good fit. Finding a therapist who understands your culture (not just ethnicity) is very important. The key here is that the client will work on goals that he/she establish. I'm glad you found one that lets you explore your own goals. These days a lot of clients want to get therapy to get a solution or answer from their therapists. Doesn't work that way. A lot of people want instant gratification. Thanks for sharing!

    Being a therapist myself, this was really interesting and awesome to watch. I'm really glad that you kept it up in finding the right fit for you because the therapeutic relationship is truly so important in the effectiveness of therapy. Also, thank you for being so opened about your process and giving therapy a platform that is real and personal; it is a stark contrast to so much of the negative connotations with therapy.

    Watching this and hearing about your experiences and how you were able to push through difficulties was inspiring. It makes me really appreciate the therapists I’ve started seeing a few months back! I’m grateful to have the opportunity to see a therapist. We can only continue striving towards self-love and compassion!
