Seeking help is hard. Dope Therapy makes it easier.

For many people, there is fear and stigma associated with entering the therapy room. Maybe you’ve been told that going to therapy means something is wrong with you. Maybe you don’t know what to expect. Even if you recognize the benefits of seeking help, it can feel scary and unknown to take that first step. If you’ve thought about therapy but don’t know where to start, or if you’ve tried therapy in the past but it hasn’t helped, Dope Therapy is for you. 

With humor and compassion, author and therapist Shani Tran validates the anxiety that can arise around seeking counseling and offers guidance for navigating the uncomfortable conversations that can come up in therapy. She is with you each step of the way, from finding the right therapist to determining when you’ve reached the end of your therapy journey. Get answers to your questions, including:
   Why isn’t therapy working?
   What if I don’t want to take medication?
   How do I deal with all these feelings?
   What will happen if I tell my therapist that I’m having suicidal thoughts?
   How do I break up with my therapist?

"What a breath of fresh air! This book lays out everything you need to know about therapy and how to navigate it - especially if you are BIPOC, queer, or young. Finally, a fun, accessible book that can guide people to the help they need." —Ryan Schwartz, founder, Mental Health Match

Shani Tran is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and the creator of The Shani Project and its associated TikTok channel, which offers insight into the world of therapy. She is particularly focused on educating around cultural humility and working with people of color, who have historically been underserved by the mental health community and may face greater challenges in seeking mental health services and communicating effectively with a therapist. She loves dancing, all-inclusive vacations, and spending time with her family.
