    Episode 98 | Dedee Pfeiffer

    She’s an award-winning actress and producer known for her wide range of dramatic and comedic roles. Currently starring in the gripping ABC mystery “Big Sky,” now filming its third season, the fiery Dedee’s nearly four-decade career has placed her alongside Hollywood’s elite and earned her the respect of masters of the acting craft. Her role in the ABC drama “Big Sky” as Denise Brisbane, a sharp-witted assistant at a private detective agency in Montana, marks her return to Hollywood following a 10-year hiatus in which she earned her Master of Social Work from UCLA.

    This is another extra special National Recovery Month highlight episode where Patrick has a deep, meaningful conversation with Dedee: We discuss everything from the disease of addiction, finding recovery, sobriety in Hollywood, mental health, family-of-origin issues, trauma recovery and so much more!
