Meet Paulina Siegel, Co-Host of Shit Talking Shrinks
What did you do Jewish growing up?
I grew up in a conservative Jewish household while attending Jewish day school K-12th. I was very active in the Jewish community in Kansas City and attended Jewish summer camp-Young Judaea. Judaism is a huge part of my identity and brings me a lot of warmth and comfort.
What do you do Jewish now?
I try to attend as many ChiTribe events as possible as well as hang out with my close circle of Jewish friends here in Chicago. I am always down for a delicious shabbas meal too!
What do you do for work ?
I own a counseling practice in both Colorado and Illinois that specializes in Gen-Z and Millennials (15-43) who struggle with anxiety, OCD, trauma and generational specific issues.

Why is this an important subject for Jewish people and beyond to be openly discussing?
General mental health is super important regardless of religion, however, as Jewish individuals it’s important for us to prioritize our mental health considering the unique experience we face within society. Anti-Semitism is real and we need to be mindful of how this impacts our overall wellbeing and wellness.
