Maybe You Should Talk to Someone

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed

Lori Gottlieb

What is your therapist thinking as you rehash that conversation with your boss? And why won’t she just agree that your mother is wrong? In Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, psychotherapist Lori Gottlieb uses real (anonymous and altered) patient stories as well as her own sessions with a therapist to demystify the process. Putting readers in the room as patients work through their problems, Gottlieb explains the relevant clinical terms and shares both her professional and personal reactions. Her blend of honesty, empathy and humor makes the book an enjoyable read—and, at a time of growing calls to destigmatize mental health issues, a valuable one.
