Through the Eyes of a Therapist Podcast was founded January 2018 by a Chicana counselor named Cristal Martinez Acosta. One day, she noticed her perception of commonplace events, people, and things was different from that of her non-therapist friends. This is when she decided to start recording her thoughts….and voila! The podcast was born!
By giving her candid, human, viewpoint on what goes on in her life, Cristal shows the non-counselor population how mental health professionals see things. She also normalizes and humanizes interactions with mental health professionals (we all don’t look like Freud and certainly don’t have it all together). Cristal, along with her guests, introduce the audience to cool mental health related content and things to try. The podcast also caters to current mental health professionals too! No subject is taboo on the show–and the 3 ultimate goals here are to de-stigmatize mental illness, humanize therapists, and de-mystify therapy.
New season launches on October 6th, 2021!
