Dr. Lisa Gives a Sh*t
FIxing the Planet One Person at a Time.
DLG1728_Comedian/Artist Grant Lindahl is finding out that life is more real with people that you care about.

Grant Lindahl is super-talented and wonderfully honest. He has just started therapy for real when I get to catch up with him. He grew up in Appalachia, his parents were ok, but his classmates treated him like a freak and much to Grant's credit, he didn't retreat.

I was really excited about having Laura, the owner of THE FOOTLIGHT BAR - (The Bushwick Daily's readers' choice award for best live music venue). ANYWAYS- Laura and I wind up having a long, revealing and inspiring session about suicide. We also talk about how she met her husband, performer Tim Shea six years ago. They're getting married soon-in 2 months-September 10! The trajectory of how Laura and Tim met and developed their relationship is unusually healthy, but still offbeat. I'm hoping to get them back on the show together!Laura is a musician and Berklee School of Music full-scholarship student and we get to hear some of her music at the end: Bridgetandthesquares.bandcamp.com www.thefootlightbar.nyc

Do you remember Ben Curtis from "Dude You're Getting A Dell?" Well it really doesn't matter, because that dude has moved on and grown! We talk about his turn on the shrink couch with me live in 2004, his arrest and overnight experience in jail. He has developed so much and grown - music career, starring role in a big off broadway show, a coaching and wellness service, Soul Fit NYC—plus it turns our he's engaged! To his vocalist, Cassie Firemann! I enjoy myself by putting the bass player, Robbie Frost on the spot by asking him what conflicts he's observed in their relationship. All beginning with a full scholarship to NYU Tisch.

Every once in a while I feel so down on myself that I can't hide it, so I take a break from putting it out there to taking it in. Personally, I think I sound like a winey, spoiled, ungrateful, douchbag but Nina shows she is up to the task. The well-known Need A Mom shows she is the herculean of all moms. And for that I am grateful. http://www.needamomnyc.com/DLG1724 I get profession career advice from Rahti Gorfien, a well-respected creative coach,
June 27, 2017 10:55 PM PDT
In this session Rahti shows off her skills by talking with me about some of my creative obstacles—like my crappy self-image. We talk how we can all manage our phone in this time-crunched era. Loads of tips too—like how if you change one thing in your life that's bugging you, a lot of other stuff can fall in place. Plus, she's a whole lot less judgmental than I am! So was grateful for all this advice and analysis-still chewing on it!

Rob is crazy talented- first of all-what a funny funny writer—song writer. And singer, guitar player too. Not full of himself. He plays live on the air, so don't miss this episode. Rob really opened up-he's focused on his work. I worry about him tho-cause he's smart, talented, GOOD LOOKING and NICE. So of course, I wind up grilling him as to why he's not in a relationship... http://robprocks.com/ http://robprocks.com/?p=2000 #robprocks #comedy #comedywriting #comedian #musician #funnysingersongwriter #psychotherapy #psychologyDLG1721 Dr. Lisa meets one of her musician heros-Bill Popp!
June 27, 2017 10:36 PM PDT
In the 1990's I was addicted to listening to Bill Popp and the Tapes—the music was the background to my frantic art-making. I went to see him play live-the whole 9 yards! So when he agreed to come on my show-I was a bit star-struck. I could not have imagined a more down to earth, dedicated and continually active musician fronting a band. We talk a lot about his background; the influence his parents individual passing had on him. Also he has a girlfriend that likes belly dancing! That's me wearing a Bill Popp and the Tapes swag, signed hat. This guy is a real original-great perspective on the music business too. http://www.billpopp.com #BillPopp #music #psychologyDLG2021_ Dr. Lisa challenges Lisa Kaplan to take action on dating and career.

Lisa is a really great, well-loved comedian who has had so much therapy, I don't have a lot to add to the conversation. But all that self-awareness needs action. At the end of this session I challenge Lisa to return to the show and report on at least ONE DATE and ONE STORYTELLING experience! #comedy #art #psychotherapy #datingDLG1720_Mick Diflo is a comedian who's a paradox of unselfconscious talent.
June 15, 2017 09:56 PM PDT
I saw Mick perform at a great show-Morrison Motel from John Morrison and I was immediately taken with the quality of his work - SO SHARP! Here's something worth noting from his bio: "Mick is a former laborer, professional boxer, addiction counselor & skeptic who moved to NYC at 48 & began doing standup." My take on Mick after this session is that he's a natural and despite not having a obvious path to it, the comedian in his soul took over who he is. A talent who is unusually honestly humble, because of his natural abilty. IMHO, but you listen and tell me! http://mickdiflo.com/ WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=tZkwrhDZKIc #comedy #psychotherapy #art #radioDLG1719 Dr. Lisa's best friend Margot, tells Dr. Lisa the truth about herself..
May 31, 2017 12:39 AM PDT
I think this was fairly brave of me. I invited my BFF of the last 30 years, writer http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/2739653.Margot_Berwin, to come on the show and answer honestly some tough questions about myself. If you're curious about my shortcomings-this episode is for you. Also, Margot tells me which old boyfriends were the most likely match-tho absolutely NONE comes anywhere near the match Phil is for me.
Dr. Lisa really DOES give a sh*t. Dr. Lisa Levy S.P. (Self-Proclaimed) has been performing psychotherapy on stage, on the street and in her studio/office since 2001, and she’s better than a lot of certified shrinks because psychoanalysis and therapy is not a job for her, it’s an obsession. In these sessions, her subjects will all be interviewed lying down which helps them free associate. Dr. Lisa will get to the essence of what makes people who they are and what their obstacles have been, and maybe help solve some issues along the way. She doesn’t mess around either, why waste time since she’s not making money on having people come back?
Lisa Levy is a conceptual artist, painter, comedic performer and (self-proclaimed) psychotherapist. Her visual art has been widely exhibited at many venues including The New Museum, The Bronx Museum, SPRING/BREAK Art Fair, The Pulse Art Fair and The Brooklyn Academy of Music and Christopher Stout Gallery. As a live performer, her most popular character is Dr. Lisa, S.P. (self-proclaimed) who psychoanalyzes people on screen, stage, on the street and on her weekly Radio Free Brooklyn show. She has performed at countless venues and theaters including The Brooklyn Museum, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Lisa Levy will be debuting a solo show at Christopher Stout’s ADO Projects this November titled, You Can’t Take it With You a humorous perspective on death.
