A Therapist Walks Into a Bar
About This Show
A Therapist Walk Into a Bar is a podcast that brings therapy to you. I'm a San Francisco based psychotherapist with a private practice. But in my spare time, I find people in bars to talk about the best and the worst of life then rope in some experts to flesh it all out.

Episode 4: Beneath The Dome (Men, Balding & Loss)
If I say body image, what do you think of? Stomach fat? Thigh gap? Laser hair removal? You probably think of women. And for good reason. Because women get a lot of pressure to look a certain way. But this happens to men too. And that’s worth talking about. In this episode, we’ll hone in on one aspect of men’s body image: hair loss. First, we’ll take a look inside the thriving hair loss prevention industry and then we’ll explore the underlying motivations that drive men to take drastic measures and how the world of psychotherapy might approach this differently.
This episode is a collaboration with the podcast Mannish, a show all about masculinity and gender.

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!
