Practicing psychologist Dr. Scott Lingen takes us on a wild ride through the minds of a revolving cast of characters AND the shrinks who treat them. 


Petter and Thea are not only a married couple, but psychotherapists--a psychologist and a psychiatrist, respectively. Between them they treat a number of patients with wide-ranging mental health issues, all the while trying to keep their own lives from becoming train wrecks in every sense of the word. At times dramatic, at times sad, and much of the time even funny, this novel presents Petter, Thea, and a revolving cast of characters in a series of episodes and sheds a very real and touching light on the lives of patients and doctors alike.

Perfect for anyone who has either engaged in therapy or wondered what it was all about. There is hope, and there is humor to be found in the darkness!
