Emily Ratajkowski, a well-known model, has talked openly about her therapy experience and how it aided her in overcoming her anxiety problems. Sebastian Bear-McClard and Ratajkowski separated earlier this year after she claimed that he had cheated on her.

“I’ve been in therapy for quite a long time,” the actor told her High Low podcast on Thursday, adding, “[Being an anxious type] means you really don’t want to be alone. You typically have negative self-image [and a] positive views of others.”

“They often seek approval, support, responsiveness from their partner. You’re always turning to your parent for more reassurance. For me, it was really in therapy where I learned to be independent and get to the root of my fear of abandonment,” she said.
