You work for a facility in inner city Chicago, where your clientele consists of at-risk youths. It's great when you get through to one of them, but it isn't often. And considering how some of them come into your office handling switchblades, you're a little at-risk yourself.


You have a private practice in The-Middle-of-Nowhere, Idaho. It's a quiet, serene life—you have your steady block of patients that you see all the time, and you make a little headway every now and again. Nothing special—Miramax isn't banging down your door for the movie rights to your life.

You have a successful television show and have published a dozen bestsellers. Dr. Phil Dr. Shmil.
