Thurston Ray http://www.thurstonray.com/ is an incredible musician and I got him to sing A Capella in the studio which you can't hear anywhere else. Thurston was appearing live that night on our RFB showcase at The Well, so I got to ask him about that. Plus in my role as Dr. Lisa, I got to grill him on how his personal love life relates to his music. Thurston was very generous and open, so we got to find out about the road he's on in his personal life and how his family and background plays into that. Hint: He's slow to get involved. A totally handsome, lovable guy, Thurston, thanks for sharing! #music #therapy #RFB #ThurstonRay @ThurstonRay
Kevin talks about how you can never take making a living in comedy for granted. He's made a living as a comedian for the past ten years and he's always working to work harder. Kevin's never been in therapy before, so we explore how his drive and role in his comedy friends may have parallels with his role as the oldest of three boys with a divorced mom household. Kevin gets big kudos here as he does not hold back-what a fabulous patient/guest! @KevinMcCaff http://kevin-mccaffrey.com/ #comedy #psychotherapy #Letterman
Holly has conceived of and is directing a play that Charlotte is acting in. Our conversation starts of the themes in the play: men, women, power, etc. and evolves into a much more personal discussion on our thoughts and opinions. The play is March 4—Tickets HERE:https://artery.is/showcases/the_will_to_fight_women_in_shakespeare2
MORE ABOUT The Will To Fight; Women in Shakespeare:
This is a collection of Shakespearean sonnets, scenes and monologues focusing on women and gender relations! We look at women in power, women in love and even women that don't like each other very much. Also, men's thoughts about women are being presented and examined, although this is focused on women it is not exclusive to any gender.

I learned a lot here. I learned a new view of marriage. There's a lot of intense stuff in here so we decided to keep the name of the guest patient secret. This woman married young, they had two kids and she found out he was cheating. Divorce ensued. 8 years go by and she hears from him again. Here's an account by a strong, smart woman that made me think freshly about the institution of marriage.
Ben Louis is one of our RFB hosts with his top rated show, https://radiofreebrooklyn.com/show/ben-talks/
I know Ben a bit from the station and his show, but he surprises me with his openness about discussing his recent breakup with his long-time girlfriend. Ben hasn't been in therapy before, and I have to say, I didn't expect our session to get this deep. So much so, that I invited Ben back the next week to do some follow up. Ben accepted, but then he had a chance to go to the Superbowl Parade, so he had to cancel. Go Eagles! Go Ben!
From LA Music Critic: "Hop on the bandwagon now cause this band is going places. Rush out and get this EP now!"
I enjoyed my session with Leigh Celent in talking to her about her development as an artist. She went from dancing and poetry in her childhood to fronting a band, following her arrival in New York. Leigh is a great example of a self-made woman way on her path to success. You can hear music from her latest ep: "Trapped Under All You Know", see her video from the song, "Seeing in Blue", http://www.castleblackmusic.com/video/ and much, much, more here: http://www.castleblackmusic.com/
I've known Pat from the days when the East Village was a dangerous place. It seemed to me that Pat always lived on his own terms, though he was always making a living as a pianist for The Martha Graham Dance Company. We hear how Pat found happiness as a loving husband and father of 2 young boys and how that has affected his own view of himself and his own dad. We play Pat's music and talk about his life has grown as successful musician career — his band — New York Electric Piano, http://www.newyorkelectricpiano.com/ the new CD: State of the Art which you can hear LIVE at Rockwood Music Hall, Monday, Jan. 29 https://www.ticketfly.com/event/1575715 https://fervor-records.com
I've know Sean J. Patrick Carney a few years now, but I haven't sat down with him before in this one on one way. He is charming and self-deprecating!
We discuss my counter-transference as he does something along the lines of what I do. It's interesting hearing Sean talk about his parents and his individual road to the art/comedy scene he's helped developed. I think I got the last word in by trying to convince him to develop some mad skills I personally feel he's ignoring. See/hear Sean's work!http://seanjosephpatrickcarney.com/ https://www.humorandtheabject.com/

Mossy Ross, singer and songwriter of Nuclear Family Fantasy, tells Dr. Lisa the circumstances behind her debut album — a boyfriend that went missing in 2016 and still not found. Mossy's work is a testament to the healing power of art. My first impression of Mossy is a bit of a wild child musician, but by the end of our session, I see a smart, strategic, focused creative person. Her talent is formidable and she share some of her songs on the air.

One of the absolute best parts of The Miss Subways experience for me was getting to meet the lovely Glace Chace (that bitch)! She believes I stole the crown from her because she couldn't answer a Dr. Zizmor http://gothamist.com/2016/01/04/zizmor_no_more.php question correctly, (no kidding, stupid bitch), aside from her INCREDIBLE performance and handmade costume.
Join us as we go behind the scenes to the moment the winner (me!) was announced and the feelings Glace was having. We also go deep discuss Glace's personal feelings about gender.DO NOT MISS GLACE'S SHOW, NEUROTICA, LAST SATURDAY of every month at Metropolitan Bar, 559 Lorimer St., Bklyn http://www.metropolitanbarny.com
