“I know therapy can be scary and expensive…I will be sitting with an amazing therapist answering any questions you might have.” She said in the post about the live stream.
The live stream opened with Elohim talking to Zack, the therapist, about how she is doing at the time. She mentions how she feels good now but has the fear of when the next wave sets in.
“It means so much to me because I have struggled severely first hand. I know there are people hurting and I want to help in any way I that I can.”
They talked about some of her first hand experiences with anxiety and panic attacks. Elohim talked about how becoming an artist was hard for her because she had the odds stacked against her. Talking about how she figured out how to get better and handle the anxiety so she wants to give that hope to others, “If I can do that you can do that.”
