WESTWOOD – Although therapy is growing in popularity, a stigma still exists, and third-year psychology major Nellie Robinson is no exception. “Can you believe my roommate just asked if I’d ever spoken to a professional, like I’m some kind of damaged freak?” said Robinson, eyes puffy from three hours of crying about her crazy mom’s lack of self-awareness. “Just because I failed the MCAT and changed my major doesn’t mean that I’m suddenly into this touchy-feely ‘wellness’ bullshit! Sometimes you get an ulcer and your hair falls out in clumps because you’re a dedicated student with a sparkling personality!” At press time, Robinson was planning to apply her knowledge of human nature to her upcoming consulting internship, “like a normal person.”
