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.

Ending The War (AKA The Food & Body Image Episode)
Almost no one is free from beliefs, rules and attitudes about food. But some of us have experienced an undue amount of emotional pain as a result, riding this rollercoaster of harshly conditional self-love. And some people develop full blown eating disorders where rules, punishment, and rebellion formulate some of the most wretched, soul-destroying patterns to break free from. But ultimately, whether you have an eating disorder or are caught up in dieting and other disordered forms of eating, the truth is it’s probably not about the food.

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!
