“I’ve struggled a lot with therapy because it’s got a stigma to it,” he told
Page Six
on Monday, “and also it’s really gotta work for you, I’ve found. As open as you can be about it and as willing as you want to kind of experiment with therapy you still have to find the right person that speaks to you and feels like a good fit for you.”

Tyler was struggling with depression after his mother’s death and his break-up in 2014, and therapy helped him to deal with those heartbreaking events. It worked so well, in fact, that now he is able to cut down on how often he goes.

“Right now I’m somewhat OK and mentally stable that I don’t need to be in it a couple of times a week,” he explained, “whereas other phases of my life I felt like I needed it at least a couple of times a week. Therapy just kind of gives you resources to manage your life outside of therapy, so you can kind of wean yourself off of it a little bit.”

He then went on to talk about why therapy worked for him, and why he would recommend it to others.

“The best thing about it is getting it all out there. Whatever you have on your chest it just feels really good to talk to somebody who you have no ties to … so I think therapy is great. I think everyone should try it out.”

We’re so grateful to Tyler for opening up about his experiences. Therapy is totally normal and helpful, and he is helping his fans to learn that.
