Our Story

The Journey Behind My Therapist Said

I'm Irene, the founder of My Therapist Said, and I wanted to share with you the story behind our company.

My journey with mental health has been one of resilience, growth, and determination. Despite facing childhood trauma, experiencing sexual assault in college, and battling various mental health issues, I refused to let these struggles define me. Instead, I turned to therapy and psychiatry to confront my negative thoughts head-on.

Through the support of my therapists and the power of self-reflection, I learned that I am not my thoughts. Those intrusive voices telling me I'm not good enough or that I'll never succeed—they don't define my worth. And just because I think something doesn't make it true. With dedication and perseverance, I've been able to overcome depression and take significant steps towards managing my anxiety and mood swings.

Driven by my personal experiences, I founded My Therapist Said with a clear vision: to empower individuals on their mental health journeys by sharing the life-changing quotes that my therapist has told me. I wanted to create a brand that not only promotes positivity but also serves as a reminder that we are capable of overcoming our inner demons.

Every ethical apparel piece we offer is designed with this vision in mind—to inspire positive thinking, resilience, and self-love. So, let us help you empower your mental health journey today.

Let's talk about mental health.

Each quote is inspired by one of the pearls of wisdom that my therapist has taught me over the years, and that I just needed to share with the world. - Irene
