Maybe You Should Talk to Someone lets readers peer in as both the therapist and her patients struggle to answer: How can I be happy? What am I willing to live with? How do we grow and change? This book offers an enlightening tour of an elusive process.
Lori Gottlieb, bestselling author and therapist, gives the reader an eye-opening look at the therapeutic process – from the therapist’s perspective. She introduces the reader to a narcissistic Hollywood producer; a young newlywed recently diagnosed with a terminal illness; a senior citizen threatening to end her life; and a 20-something who can’t stop hooking up with the wrong guys. As Gottlieb guides them, she discovers that helping other people recognize their blind spots does not cure her of her own. Because, all of a sudden, her own life has gone off the rails. Enter Wendell, the therapist who helps Gottlieb unearth the hidden roots of her current crisis, gradually transforming her as a therapist, a patient, a mother, and a human being. Personal, revealing, funny, and wise,
