In Session

What does it take to realize that you need to talk to someone?  Is it an anxiety attack…maybe several anxiety attacks?  But you’re fine, going to a shrink is ridiculous.  Is it feeling really high, then crashing to a low?   You didn’t wake up and go to work the other day because of it, but it’s not a problem, you don’t do therapy. Is it pressure from family that you

don’t need to pay for someone to talk to you?  You know what they’d think—and they speak their mind—you don’t need the expense of therapy just to pay someone to listen to you. Is it because in your family, with your customs, therapy is not an option?

In Session is the journey of four women, each one different in appearance and ethnicity, yet the same in many ways.  Although they come from different backgrounds, each one has family, success, failure, heartbreak and the best reasons to dismiss therapy. What they don’t have is real help when they need it—professional help—until one by one, their world collapses around them. Through the eyes of Andrea, Cori, Sophie and Vivian, we learn what they learn—therapy is for everyone, no matter who you are.
