Maybe You Should Talk to Someone
A boldly revealing portrait of what it means to be human, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.
From New York Times best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national advice columnist Lori Gottlieb, a hilarious, thought-provoking, and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist’s world—where her patients are looking for answers (and so is she).
One day, Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose office she suddenly lands.
As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients’ lives, she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell. With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change.
This book comes highly recommended by Class Teacher and Director of Teacher Development, Laura Camilleri: "I couldn't put this book down! Lori's interactions with her clients and her own therapist made me laugh and cry; you'll learn so much about yourself and your life through Lori's transparency and vulnerability."
