Long ago, in a faraway place and a different life, I was a child and family therapist. I know, from what you know of me you’re probably thinking “What? Her? No way!” But it’s true, I was. I got a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work and returned to my Appalachian roots to “fix” people in in the “hollers” of eastern Kentucky and Tennessee. After about 10 years, I burned-out big time, and said goodbye to the therapy life.
Now, along comes Lisa Kudrow, former funniest actor on Friends, with Web Therapy. (skip the intro.) It’s a webcam narrative that is co produced, co-written, and starring Kudrow as the self-absorbed, incompetent Dr. Fiona Wallace. She says things to her clients(from the saftey of a web camera) that I often wished I could have said, and given that the sessions are only 3-minutes long, can pretty much tune out at will. Her expressions are priceless. Check it out. I think it is hysterical. What do you think?
