About Us

Dr. Lisa really DOES give a sh*t. Dr. Lisa Levy S.P. (Self-Proclaimed) has been performing unlicensed psychotherapy since 2001 - on stage, on the street and in her studio/office. She’s better than a lot of certified shrinks because psychoanalysis and therapy is not a job for her, it’s an obsession. Dr. Lisa will get to the essence of what makes people who they are and what their obstacles have been, and maybe help solve some issues along the way. She doesn’t mess around either, she's VERY direct! "A Shrink with Stage Presence."- New York Times"Riotously Funny!" - London Times

DLG211 RFB Host Eryn Levine gets SO real about her people pleasing proclivities with Dr. Lisa.

EI have to say, Eryn Levine, host of RFB's Game Play Radio on Thursday's 2-3pm does not hold back on diving into her exploration of doing more than she needs to so other people will be happy. Eryn is an impressive young woman who is intelligent, responsible, initiative taking... all those things that will make her a huge success. She sees how her people pleasing is getting in her way and is becoming vigilant about jettising some of this behavior. I would say Eryn's affliction is not uncommon, but her honestly and drive to change her behavior is. We explore Eryn's background on how this behavior has developed in her past and we figure out some tactical ways to change her behavior so she can focus all that valuable energy on her own goals. Eryn has smarts and motivation, so we agreed she will come back for a second appointment in a month or so. I anticipate great progress which we can all learn from. Eryn is a gem. Her show Game Play Radio harnesses her prodigious storytelling skills.

DLG210 Comedian Michele Balan is a complex subject and a joy on any microphone.

EI saw Michele Balan perform a comedy set recently and I was blown away. It made me wonder about what a career path for someone in my age group with comedy chops/success, like Michele, would have been like to travel on. To be a successful women in comedy clubs in 90's must have been... well I just can't imagine. Therefore, I was thrilled when she agreed to be on Dr. Lisa Gives A Shit. In doing research in preparation to have Michele on my show, I came across a podcast she had done with another goddess comedian, Judy Gold. Michele laid out a history with was so deep and complex starting with the death of her mother at age 10 and the insanity that comes with not having a point person in your life. Michele is a great storyteller and a fascinating survivor—I encourage you to listen to the account which is detailed and inspiring. What someone can do without a college degree! Here's the links to the podcast - it's 3 parts-if you just listen to the first one, you can get the idea—only 1/2...

DLG209 Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist, Jessie Shaw schools Dr. Lisa on Ayahuasca.

EI've been curious about Ayahuasca a naturally grown, highly potent hallucinogenic plant since it's become recently popular in the culture. What's up with this shit? Can you really learn something or is it just another party drug? Jesse is an expert. She calls her healing practice Enhanced Living through Acupuncture, Herbs, and Alchemy. She's been practicing with Ayahuasca for over 25 years. Jesse has a shamin she works with regularly in her travels to Peru to do "ceremony," They have become good friends. She have traveled with him all over Peru in small groups, and have taken several trips to Colombia with him as well. Also, Jesse is a very successful and down to earth human, not just some nutcase, so I get her to tell us what her take is. I find her experiences and perspective authentic. Jesse has full command of a wide range of healing practices which she draws from to use with her clients. She has published several books and recently completed a documentary film: The I Ching, Anc...

DLG193 Artist Shona McAndrew and her boyfriend, Stuart Lantry, have a beautifully large relationship.

EI don’t usually bring out the word “kvell” in my sessions, but I brought it out about 3 times here. Shona’s work is profound to say the least. She dives into intimacy and the relationship with one’s body and so much more. She is a physically large (by our bullshit society standards) female who was brought up by a perfectly beautiful mother and charismatic father. There are two qualities that Shona has that I posit got her through her growing up to the healing place as a repaired relationship with her family, in a healthy, loving relationship and a soaring career as an artist—the qualities I identify in her are: her talent and connection to art, and her talent and strength in trusting her instincts. And she’s only 28! Her boyfriend, Stuart who is a talented artist as well, is on the air with us. To hear about his own personal development within his relationship with Shona is the stuff of romance novels. This discussion moved me on so many levels. More proof that art is indeed ...

DLG208 Martin Kramer discusses his films and he is WAY articulate about them AND for someone so young.

EI first met Martin Kramer when he was about 9 years old—his dad, artist David Kramer, brought him over to join in on a father/son therapy video I was creating. Martin is, above all else, a creative soul that marches to his own drummer. I can't help but think his highly active creative parents along with the myriad of opportunities that come with growing up in Manhattan have enriched his experiences, in many ways, from what might typically be assumed of a 19 year old sophomore at Concordia Film School in Montreal. Martin shares 2 of his films that he recently made at Concordia: Empty Nest and Blue Cowboy. WATCH THEM-they are only about 5 minutes each. EMPTY NEST: https://vimeo.com/332693808 BLUE COWBOY: https://vimeo.com/352360247 Both films are metaphorical but are directly born of Martin's emotional conflicts that he articulates surprisingly well for any adult filmmaker, and especially for one so young. Personally, I find it impressive to see any art that is so in touch and unafra...

DLG207 Actor, comedian, writer, Ken Perlstein talks about sobriety in his new TV pilot and his life.

EJust to shorthand what this episode with Ken is mostly about—it's a deep dive with Ken about his drinking and recovery. I am grateful to Ken for being so open, candid and generous with discussing his life experiences. Ken Perlstein is a successful actor with a great career (recurring role on Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, touring comedian, accomplished writer, etc. https://www.kenperlstein.com/ Ken has written a new TV pilot, How Am I Doing? a story about a middle aged man struggling with his acting career, his relationship with his daughter and addiction, which is making the festival rounds. As Ken states in the GoFundMe Page: My dream of creating this pilot began with looking at my own struggles and challenges, raising a family, being a husband and a father, keeping my sobriety, all while continuing to pursue my career as an actor. This pilot must get to air. Please donate on the Go Fund Me page and see the sizzle reel for it or go see the full pilot at the Golden Door FIlm Festival on S...

DLG206 Author and therapist Mark O’ Connell talks performing and psychotherapy and generously gives me some feedback-

EI came across this book The Performing Art of Therapy and immediately I had to met the man who wrote it. Mark has a M.S.W. with honors, Silberman School of Social Work AND an M.F.A. in Acting, Trinity Rep Conservatory (affiliated with Brown University). As a self-proclaimed psychotherapist, myself, I have no formal training in either therapy or performance. Mark’s created innovation in the area of psychotherapy by using acting techniques himself as well as teaching theses techniques to other shrinks to use in their practice. I sent Mark a bunch of tapes of my work prior to the show so I could get some feedback on my technique. Mark was mostly complimentary though I did push him to tell me some things I might work on. Which lead to some dueling countertransference. More about Mark's therapy practice here: http://markoconnelltherapist.com/

This therapy session with Moon Palace drummer, Jude Miqueli was IN-TENSE

EFresh off of a plane, in town from Seattle, Jude Miqueli came to the studio for a in-depth therapy session. Meeting Jude IRL for the first time, we chatted briefly about her day job as a kindergarten teacher—herding kids that age is sort of like "forming a community," she said. Once we were on the mic, it was off to the races. Jude's family had a tragedy about five years ago and she talks about it openly. I feel like this session was quite a journey that Jude and I went on together, all the more extreme because we had never met. I look back at this session as sort of having a surprising but satisfying wrap-up. This episode is a great example of an artist showing her strength through vulnerability. Jude's band Moon Palace is SO GOOD. We play some of the music throughout so you will see what I mean. A new record drops August 23.

DLG204 Legendary Penny Arcade wants to tell people they are not crazy.

EPenny Arcade is an icon. By that I mean she stands for something. Something important which involves being aware. She is also incredibly talented and entertaining. Penny travels a lot performing all over the world, but she is on the phone and not too far away, calling in from a residency at The Watermill Center to talk to me in the studio. Her latest show Longing Lasts Longer, is a rock n’ roll blend of stand-up comedy and memoir which she has performed for the past 4 years, all around the world and is bringing it home to Joe's Pub. It's described as – "An evening of dangerous ideas and radical inquiry into what it means to be human, right now! Right here!" Penny and I talk in depth about a lot of what's on her mind which are topics in the show, such as the failed promise of the internet, and the culture we live in. So much thinking here from someone who's traveled the world and seen it all. Penny's FABULOUS SHOW is at JOE'S PUB, Tues., Aug. 13, Tues., Aug. 20 and Tues., Aug. 27. ...

EMy BFF of thirty years, bestselling author and professional tarot card reader, Margot Berwin reads my cards for the first time in two years. I want to find out from her/the cards how my art career is doing. I am frustrated with my career, like every other artist and in this session, I begin to see that it's not always my actual career, it's my emotional problems getting in my way, and things are much better than I have internalized. There's really good thinking about creative careers and a view into my blind spots. You likely have some of the same issues. I felt SO MUCH better after this session.
