A funny, thought-provoking, and shocking new book by a New York Times best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national therapy columnist that brings readers behind the scenes in a therapist’s world. Every day, in her practice in Los Angeles, Lori Gottlieb helps her patients finding the answers they are looking for. But one day a disaster brings her life to collapse and start working on it with a therapist. Meet Wendell, the eccentric yet experienced psychologist who unexpectedly arrived in her office. Lori slowly discovers that the same problems she is now taking to her therapist, are the very ones her patients are strruggling with. Gottlieb welcomes us to her life on both side of the practice , exploring the realities and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we walk the tightrope between love and desire, purpose and destiny, remorse and redeeming, fear and bravery, optimism and improvement. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone delivers an intensely intimate tour into our hearts and minds and provides the rarest of gifts: a courageously honest image of what it is to be human, and a humorous and enlightening account of our own enigmatic lives and our ability to change them.
