TVs don’t’ have heartbeats…

We wrap up our month of Obsession discussing the psychology of infatuation with psychotherapist and friend to the podcast, Emily Garmisa.

As a clinician, she specializes in facilitating recovery from trauma, substance use disorders, grief and mourning, and particularly enjoys working with fellow artists and members of the LGBTQIA community. A pop culture savant, she spends her free time crafting, playing video games, and binge watching Netflix.
