Our Mission

At My Therapist Said, our mission is clear: to promote positive thinking and destigmatize conversations about mental health through ethical apparel.

👋 I'm Irene, and I founded this company with the desire to make a difference in how we perceive ourselves and approach mental health, especially in the workplace.

Many mental health fashion brands inadvertently reinforce negative labels by focusing solely on themes of anxiety or "falling apart". While I understand the importance of finding a community of like-minded individuals, I've learned from my own experiences with therapy that the way we think about ourselves profoundly impacts our well-being.

Your brain's intrusive negative thoughts—those doubts about your intelligence, fears of failure, or feelings of disappointment—can become overwhelmingly convincing if left unchecked. But here's the truth: you are not defined by these thoughts. My Therapist Said is here to remind you that you have the power to control how much these intrusive thoughts affect you, and you don't have to let your past traumas hold you back.

Having overcome my own battles with childhood trauma, sexual assault, and various mental health issues, I understand firsthand some of the challenges you may be facing. Despite these hardships, I've achieved milestones like becoming the first in my family to graduate from college and earning a Master's degree. While I continue to navigate my journey towards overcoming anxiety and mood swings, I've learned invaluable lessons through therapy and medication.

Together, let's empower each other on our mental health journeys. Join us at My Therapist Said as we strive to spread positivity, resilience, and acceptance through our sustainable fashion choices.
