Jimmy was then shown at his pool in the middle of the night admitting to his complaining neighbor that he was taking painkillers.

Jimmy listened as a patient told him how her partner “went on and on about how stupid I am, but he loves me.”

He put down his note and blurted out, “Your husband is emotionally abusive. He’s not working on it. He doesn’t intend to. Just leave him.’

“Okay,” his client replied.

Jimmy then stated that he could help people more if he got his “hands a little dirtier.”

‘We know what to do. Don’t you ever want to just shake them?’ said Jimmy.

“But we don’t shake them,” Paul told him.

Paul also spoke to Jimmy’s teenage daughter Alice in the trailer [Lukita Maxwell].

“No one gets through this life unscathed. You face a choice. Do you let your sorrow drown you? Or are you going to face it, come through the other side?’, he asked her.

A description for the film read, “Shrinking follows a grieving therapist (played by Segel) who begins to break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he’s thinking. Ignoring his education and ethics, he finds himself making huge, tumultuous changes in people’s lives…including his own.
