    Point 3 & 4 is spot on. Howard uses his therapist as a crutch. A therapist's job is to try to get his or her patient to a point that they don't need them anymore. It isn't so that the patient is totally dependent on them and fall apart whenever they are away for even a short period of time. A responsible therapist with a client like Howard would break the relationship and have him go to a therapist who will not allow the co-dependency that Howard has attached.

    I disagree. Did you see the gorgeous lake house that Howard's shrink has for his month long vacation in August? He thinks the therapy is working great. He almost has his winter home in Costa Rica paid off too.

    BTW, Howard had been trying to get August off for years (tried to negotiate that in his last contract negotiations). I wonder if he did that not so he could take advantage of the Hamptons' big social scene, but because his therapist like most big time therapists take that month off. Howard just wants to minimize the stress while his therapist is away and can't hand hold him.

    I would imagine Howard could be the poster child for failed therapy. 30 years of three times a week counseling and the dude is still a complete mess, by his own admission!

    The therapist is just another person in howards life who he gives money to for the illusion of companionship in return.
