– The stress can be overwhelming. – Mhm. Oh sorry Kristen, we have to finish up. – Oh, okay. – And I’m gonna be traveling
for the next two weeks. – I’m sorry? – Yeah, I’ll be back on
the 27th, we can resume our normal time then. Okay? – Okay. Works for me. (soft piano music) ♪ You know me better than I know myself ♪ ♪ Every time we talk my tears swell ♪ ♪ I told you all about ♪
my weird sex dreams ♪ ♪ My sweet therapist Jan Gray PhD ♪ ♪ I know I pay you to talk to me ♪ ♪ But sometimes I pretend it’s free ♪ ♪ Now you’re on vacation, ♪

in an I wish you were my mom kinda way. You came up in my people
you may know on Facebook and I thought about
looking through your photos but I didn’t. I respect your privacy. Okay fine I lied, I looked
at the photos multiple times. It seems like you had a
lot of fun at Machu Picchu and your hair looked
way different in 2014, but still cool. Okay I found you on Instagram
too and YouTube and Venmo, and I saw that you paid
someone named Yasmina for ceramics class. Is there anything you can’t do? Also objectively, you’re attractive. That’s neither here nor there.

longing for my acceptance comes from the distance
your father created during your formative years. – Damn that’s right on.

  1. This is so amazing hahaha Oh man, now I want Yvette in The Good Place so badly… My only criticism is that they didn't use Yvette Nicole Brown's amazing singing chops as well. That would have been hysterical.

  2. Who are the 30 people who disliked this video? I’m guessing every one of those 30 people called with their therapist immediately after watching this vid.

  3. Screaming!!! I love this! I’am a counselor and I think this is amazing! I know my clients feel like this!! It’s so scary! HOLLARING!! 😂😂😂

  4. As a therapist I found this funny, lovely and spot on. I find it's impossible to have anyone cover for me (with a Psychiatrist it's often a medical issue that can be covered by another psychiatrist but with a therapist if I am needed it's for emotional support-which is personal and often requires information that others wouldn't have- I don't know what I did before Cell Phones!) . Great job Ms Bell-you deserve to be in the Good Place, the REAL one!

  5. Stress (chiefs not stressing) ya know believability, I love being truthful and just not sugar coating shit(Master chiefs) a straight up motherfucker😈

  6. This really makes me realize how much I miss and need to get back into therapy. I miss having the safest place in the universe.

  7. This is perfection. Thank you. Finally something funny about therapist-client relationship without using the awful trope of client dating the therapist. Well done.

  8. I keep picturing her as Anna while singing this (cos she was the voice actor) and have this whole song in Frozen. lol

  9. Wow… I guess I hadn’t really thought that much about the fact that my clients might think about me outside of session like as a real person 😅😂 I can’t unsee this now lol thank you for being the image that will come to mind next time I tell a client that I won’t be in town 😂

  10. Why was her husband wearing a, "The Future is Female," apron? Maybe the future is inclusive, that would be nice.

  11. this is exactly how I feel about my therapist. she went to Antarctica and I was like NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

  12. As someone in their masters for psychotherapy, this is like actually pretty accurate. I can't believe they actually did that. Like the boundaries of real-life interactions. The therapist not talking about their personal life like basically ever… although "giving advice" is a complicated thing. And lol ya the 24 hour notice dead on. Wonderful pice of work that normalizes therpy !

  13. For anyone struggling with depression and anxiety and other mental illnesses, remember this: what it comes down to is that you're having a sane response to a positively insane situation. You're not broken, and it is absolutely okay to ask for help to manage your problems.

  14. I kno I've always said I wanted you to sing ~more, lol but.. whuut was that?!?! xD (still, release an album alrdy! ♡ #KBell can sing almost anything & I'll still love it, haha)

  15. This is amazing! I recently had a really traumatic breakdown of the relationship with my therapist who was pretty much the most important person in my life and this is all me to a T. I wish I could have shared this with her.

    It’s been really nice to see this as it reminds me that I’m not the only one who has done everyone of these.

    The tune is lovely too.

  16. 1:52–1:55 damn that vibrato!!!! I wish Kristen will do theater again. Or sing more!!!! She has this amazing voice!

  17. I want to send this to my therapist but he is a male, so i'm afraid that he will think that i have a crush on him 😕

  18. My therapist retired and I’m watching this on repeat in order to cope. 😅 Rhonda, if you ever see this, you saved my life.
