If you have ever wondered what your therapist is really thinking, then my interview with Sherry Amatenstein will satisfy your curiosity. She sat down with me to discuss her new book, How Does That Make You Feel?: True Confessions from Both Sides of the Therapy Couch (Seal Press, 2016). This unique anthology of confessional essays, written by therapists as well as patients, gives readers a behind-the-scenes look into the world of psychotherapy. In our interview, Amatenstein reflects on what the stories in her book teach us about the day-to-day practice of psychotherapy and the myriad challenges and surprises that emerge when two strangers engage in a professional and deep kind of intimacy.
Sherry Amatenstein, LCSW is a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist practicing in New York City with expertise in relationships. Her prior books include The Complete Marriage Counselor: Relationship Saving Advice from Americas Top 50+ Couples Therapists, The Q&A Dating Book, and Love Lessons from Bad Breakups.
