Storyline

"Doing Therapy" is a lighthearted romantic comedy set in modern-day Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Humorous, silly, and even suspenseful at times, it is a heartwarming tale with the sincerity and simplicity of a black-and-white 1950s melodrama. In the middle of a highly successful film career, Diane Rischard, a famous Hollywood actress, suddenly develops a problem while onstage. She is stricken with frightful, paralyzing panic attacks that begin to affect her job and her personal life. In an effort to help her, her family seeks out the best anxiety specialist in the country -- an offbeat psychologist (Joe Giacobello) working out of a clinic in Pittsburgh. To avoid the media attention, Diane goes to Pittsburgh, and the unlikely couple is stuck together for an entire month in extensive 24-hour-a-day therapy. As they work together to figure out her problem, Diane reveals that she has been harboring a secret -- a man has been stalking her. The psychotic predator soon surfaces, once again ...

Trivia

Joe Giacobello, the film's writer, producer, director, and leading man, filmed many of the scenes in his own apartment. While he plays a respected psychologist considered to be one of the best anxiety specialists in the US, his character is a slob in personal life. Consequently, Joe had to convert his apartment into what he calls a "pigpen", with trash and clothing strewn about his living space. During the entire year of shooting, he had to keep the apartment in this disheveled state, unable to move a single piece of debris. See more »
