    16 Instagram Accounts That Are All About Going To Therapy

    Published Feb 23rd, 2021 & updated on Mar 19th, 2021

    Learning more about going to therapy can be a bit daunting, especially if you’re at the beginning of your mental health journey. You probably have a ton of questions about the process and about your own mental health!

    We did an Instagram deep dive and found some awesome accounts that we think would be really great for you to follow! They’re informative, educational, and are created by some really wonderful people. Most importantly, these accounts create a really cool community space where you can talk about mental health struggles! People supporting other people?? We’re here for it!! 

    If you’re already in therapy, we recommend that you follow these accounts anyway because they’re still prettyyyy great!

    1. @the.truth.doctor

    Dr. Courtney Tracy is the internet’s no-bs therapist! She’s here to tell it like it is, buuuuut also help you feel loved, seen, and supported at the same time. 

    She’s taking over the internet with her super relatable and helpful content. None of her tips are overwhelming, and she’s made her Instagram page an incredibly positive space. Dr. Tracy is the perfect therapist to follow if you want to learn more about how you can help your own mental health! 

    Did you know Dr. Tracy also has a podcast? She gives different strategies to help you approach the issues you’re dealing with in a way that works for you.

    2. @evolveandbloom

    Nadia Addesi is here to help you improve your mental health and transform your life! That might sound like a pretty big claim to fame, but it’s true! 

    Nadia helps her followers out by giving advice that’s relevant to alll aspects of their lives. Anxious? She’s got tips for that. How about procrastination? You better believe that she’s already made an Instagram Reel about it. 

    We’re kinda sorta in love with her and her account. So in love that we partnered up with Nadia and Micheline (see below) to create Anxious Like You, a super awesome podcast about anxiety from two therapists who really get it!! You definitely will love them too!

    3. @micheline.maalouf

    Micheline Maalouf is another one of those creators that we can never seem to get enough of! As a registered psychotherapist, she’s here to deliver quality mental health advice in small, bite-sized pieces.

    4. @therapyforblackgirls

    BIPOC have been going THROUGH it for so long. It can become really heavy trying to bear the weight of oppression, racism, violence, and sexism on your shoulders. The experiences of a Black person are something that a white therapist or counsellor could never fully understand.

    That’s why we love this account! Dedicated to promoting mental wellbeing for Black girls and women, @therapyforblackgirls provides support, education and resources to those who need it. Give this account a follow! It doesn’t matter what colour your skin is because the mental wellbeing of BIPOC is something that we should all learn about and work to understand.

    5. @askdrjess

    Dr. Jessica Clemons is a psychiatrist based out of NYC. She has graced Instagram with her welcoming energy and informative content!

She gives different strategies to help you approach the issues you’re dealing with in a way that works for you. After all, therapy isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of thing.
