At the CBS upfront presentation for her new show Angel from Hell, in which she plays an irreverent wisecracker who may or may not be an actual guardian angel, Jane Lynch told PEOPLE about her own personal guiding light.
When asked who has been one of her best advice givers, the actress said she treasures lessons learned from an offbeat therapist.
"I had a therapist that was flawed on so many levels, but I kept going back because she just had wisdom, and I knew she loved me," said Lynch, 54. "And I know maybe your therapists aren't supposed to love [you]."
Like her character in Angel from Hell, Lynch's therapist offered invaluable advice despite her unconventional methods.

It happens during every season of Survivor: A contestant is backstabbed.
During the final tribal council, one of the competitors is inevitably shocked – shocked! – that an ally would lie to them. They throw around words like "integrity" and "honor." Some even cry.
As the scenario unfolds, host Jeff Probst watches with an amused smile on his dimpled face. "It's fascinating," he tells PEOPLE. "I'm constantly entertained."
Was he entertained while filming the show's 30th season, premiering on CBS on Wednesday night? Probst says that Survivor: Worlds Apart, which divides its 18 contestants by profession, will be one of the franchise's strongest seasons yet.

Sunday night, as Hollywood was paying tribute to itself at the Oscars, CBS remembered one of its own brightest stars, veteran newsman Bob Simon, who died in a Manhattan car crash Feb. 11 after spending 47 of his 73 years gracefully and expertly covering stories around the world.
"He was a brilliant combination of sophistication and street smarts who liked to tell people he was just a Jewish kid from the Bronx," his 60 Minutes colleague Steve Kroft said of Simon.

Survivor is one of those shows that rises and falls on its casting. When the contestants are interesting, we get a stellar season like last spring's Survivor: Cagayan. If the cast is bland, we get a mediocre season like last fall's Survivor: San Juan Del Sur. (Don't take our word for it; even host Jeff Probst called it a "frustrating" season.)
But Survivor is shockingly resilient. Now entering its 30th season, it has been around so long that this season's youngest contestant was in the first grade when the show premiered. She's now 22.
This season, producers have divided the 18 contestants of Survivor: Worlds Apart into three tribes based on socioeconomic status. There's a white collar tribe: professionals and executives. The blue collar tribe includes a cop, hairdresser and postal worker. The no-collar tribe is full of bohemians who sell coconuts or design jewelry.

CBS hasn't had much luck with genre dramas, but it has high hopes that a certain caped crusader will fly for the network.
The network has given a series commitment to Supergirl, a DC Comics character that was first introduced to fanboys and girls in 1959. The drama from Greg Berlanti (co-showrunner for The CW's Arrow) will zero in on Superman's cousin, Kara Zor-El, who is equally as powerful as her male counterpart – and just as allergic to Kryptonite.
Though Supergirl is expected to be played by an unknown, 20-something actress, CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler is confident the actress and role will fit nicely alongside more mature characters like The Good Wife's Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), Extant's Molly Woods (Halle Berry), and Madam Secretary's Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni).
