If I could go to a famous TV/movie shrink, it would be...

5. Kelsey Grammar as Dr. Frasier Crane from Frasier. I think the neurotic over-analyzer would have at least been able to relate. Plus, amazing sarcasm from a staunch Freudian.

4. Gabriel Bryne as Paul from In Treatment. He seemed like a moderately intelligent, sometimes helpful guy. It'd be therapeutic just to sit across from him with an excuse to stare for a whole hour once per week. And that accent. Enough said.

3. Barbra Streisand as Dr. Lowenstein from The Prince of Tides. Actually, I'd like to just be a fly on the wall watching her and Robert Redford converse on matters of the heart in the same room. #katieandhubbelreunite

2. Lorraine Bracco as Dr. Jennifer Melfi from The Sopranos. Something about that blank stare and intentional long pause at the beginning of each session is strangely mesmerizing. She would get me endlessly chattering just to break the silence. But really, who wouldn't want to hear that amazing voice once a week?

1. Dianne Wiest as Gina from In Treatment. In all seriousness, if I could create a therapist in a bottle it would be Gina. She was smart as anything, calming while still immensely effective, nonjudgmental but unafraid to give her opinion. I could have used a Gina session or two when she exited HBO.
