Counting your money to feel successful, satisfied, or relaxed.
Young Jeezy in "I'm So Paid":

"I used to get bored, count twenties for practice.

Paper therapy, we let the money relax us."

The act of shopping as an outlet for frustration and a reliever of stress.
Juju's Retail Therapy session went quite well; she visited the local Sephora for her fix of new eyeshadows, as well as the jewelry cart for a pair of new obnoxious but cute earrings. Nothing beats spending money to forget about your troubles.

A type of "therapy" that forces autistic children to conform to normal societal expectations instead of appreciating them for who they are. This requires them to work with "therapists" 20-40 hours a week in which they'll comply to act however way his/her parents want them to act even if it's physically and psychologically scarring. A lot of times the "therapists" will force autistic people to not stim or restrict meltdowns. They'll also emotionally manipulate their clients in which they reward them for being obedient and restricting their natural habits. This can often lead them to being overly obedient and anxious later in life in which they'll be scared to stand up for themselves for what is right.
Me: Poor Timmy has PTSD from all that ABA therapy he's endured.
Friend: Those fucking assholes. Why can't they just let us be ourselves and express ourselves in our own unique ways. It's not like we're hurting anyone while doing it.
Me: Because money that's why.

Slang for giving someone the finger and the immediate healing this physical and emotional release provides.
I knew that we were definitely done as I heard him yelling at me again so I gave myself a much-needed dose of good ol’ finger therapy!

A highly successful psychotherapy technique that requires only one “session” during which a person comes close to being eviscerated by a great white, but is allowed to escape unharmed.
I tried shark therapy because it’s more experiential and doesn’t require you to talk or have insight; you just feel really great when it’s all over!
