She delves into her dissection adventures in entertaining, albeit highly descriptive detail. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is revolutionary in its candor, offering a deeply personal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: 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. We learn how therapy really works, and why it’s so helpful for people. But I enjoyed every minute!
I don't think the book is perfect: sometimes it can feel pretty longwinded, and the therapist's personal story is the least interesting and definitely the weakest part of the book. The Bookshelf: Book review: 'Maybe You Should Talk to Someone' mines our relationship with therapy and with ourselves, Railroad says it will have downtown building torn down after it was declared a public nuisance, Two charged with kidnapping, armed robbery in Dalton, Whitfield commissioners to consider mask mandate tonight, Chatsworth man's death ruled a result of meth intoxication, Commissioners refuse to recommend or mandate masks as Whitfield's COVID-19 cases surge, Laughter declines to comment on viral video, Chatsworth motorcycle rider dies in Whitfield County wreck on Friday, Dalton man charged with murdering his uncle in 'unprovoked' attack, Wendy's coming to Varnell on Cleveland Highway. The ones that I thought the most about were pursuing a meaningful life, the hope of repairing broken relationships, and learning to appreciate the positive when our lives veer off our ideally envisioned future (“Welcome to Holland”). At first I was’t sure but I ended up loving it! There are many ways to move on, and pretending to feel a certain way isn’t one of them.”.

I highly recommend this for readers who are in the field of mental health (or considering the field), for those who are curious about therapy and/or some of the terminology and process, for fans of poignant memoir, and for everyone who wants to live a more meaningful life. I listened to Lori Gottlieb's interview with Terry Gross on "Fresh Air" and wa. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose office she suddenly lands. "Of all my credentials as a therapist, the most significant is that I am a card-carrying member of the human race,” writes Lori Gottlieb, ’89, in Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt).
While her career path may not have been traditional, both of these experiences serve her well: her book pairs the curated details and masterful pacing of a veteran storyteller with the keen insights and deep empathy of a healer. I encourage you to give it time to come together. She tries to convince herself that she just needs the tools to get past the breakup so she can move on. Reading Maybe You Should Talk To Someone is like slurping chicken soup for the therapy-goer’s soul. When she develops an irrational crush on Wendell, she recognizes it for what it is: transference, which, along with its converse, countertransference, comprises the discomfiting emotional reactions that can arise between patients and their therapists. If you’ve been seeing a therapist for a little while now *raises hand*, you get it. Recommended: I consider this a worthwhile and beneficial read with this note: it has some profanity (if that bothers you) and it’s filled with triggers including terminal illness and death of a child. I’m also super nosy, so the premise of this book has definitely captured my interest. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is revolutionary in its candor, offering a deeply personal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: 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.

Lori Gottlieb is a psychotherapist and New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, which is being adapted as a television series with Eva Longoria. I’ve added it. Gottlieb explains that she altered some details to protect the identity of her patients, who consented to have the most intimate aspects of their lives in print. Brothers Bill and Mel Lane ran Sunset Publishing for nearly 40 years. “I have this in mind each time I meet a new patient.” Gottlieb alternately resists and embraces changing her own snapshot, as she stumbles through heartbreak, self-sabotage, avoidance and denial on her way to acceptance.
