THE THERAPIST COMFORTS TROUBLED MUSICIAN
Music is often talked about as a form of therapy—after all a DJ can, as Indeep told us, save a life from a broken heart. It’s also often said that making music is like visiting a shrink.
Dear Dr. Siri,
“I just wanted to say thank you for the example you set for therapists and for who you are with your patients. I have been in this profession for many years and often avoid watching ‘therapy’ on TV, because it disappoints me or feels inauthentic. I came across you accidentally several months ago and have appreciated, so much, how nonjudgmental your approach is, the way you laugh with your patients, your depth and insightfulness, and the safety you provide for tears and honesty.
I am a very anxious girl and what I do means so much to me. Therapy should be real….it should help….it should change lives. I find myself in moments of anxiety, whether presenting at a conference or dealing with difficult patients, that I go into my ‘Siri’ mind and it calms me. Thank you for that.
I love you and am thankful that you put your skills out there to help others. I just wanted to tell you that.”
“You saved my marriage!”
“I have been to 27 different therapists and you were the only one to get at the root of my problem.”
“Thank you for all the help you’ve given me towards following my heart.”
“Thanks Siri. I could not have gone through this alone.”
“Your talent is a real as the sun, moon, and stars.”
“I am aware when I started working with you that my career went up!”
