A Therapist Walks Into a Bar
About This Show
A Therapist Walk Into a Bar is a podcast that brings therapy to you. We are San Francisco based psychotherapists who like to get out of our offices, grab our microphones, and find people in bars to chat with us about the best and the worst of life. Then we hit up the experts to help us make sense of it all.

A Brief Psycho-Education: The Unconscious
Most of us know what it means when we say a person went “unconscious” or “lost consciousness”. But deeply imbedded in the roots of psychology’s history is the idea of The Unconscious - a psychological phenomena that is inherent to the human psyche and whether we like it or not, influences a tremendous amount of our behavior from who we fall in love with to racial discrimination. As part of the ongoing "Brief Psycho-Education" series, in this episode Lily breaks down what The Unconscious is and makes a case for facing all that we've kept hidden from ourselves and others.

Thoughtful, funny, and easy to listen to
I am always grateful when I listen to A Therapist Walks Into A Bar because Lily picks some pretty intense topics and masterfully offers diverse and compassionate perspectives on everything from racism to body image to substance use and beyond. This podcast is a necessary addition and I'm stoked it's here!
