    If you ve followed me here on Goodreads for any length of time, you probably know that I am incredibly passionate about mental health advocacy It s something that we need to talk about , so we can break down the stigma surrounding it and people can pursue help So it should not be a surprise that I was excited to read a memoir about a therapist pursuing therapy to help her deal with her own issues or that I absolutely loved the book.These days, I m pretty open about the fact that I see a therapist and I love it I have only semi jokingly said many times that I think everyone should give it a try at least twice go to the initial intake appointment then go at least once to get a feel for it Even if you don t think you have a diagnosable condition such as anxiety or depression, just talking out your challenges and breaking down your less than great behavioral patterns with an unbiased third party can be an eye opening experience It s taken me a long while to get to the point where I feel comfortable talking about it with others, and I appreciate anything, like this book, that will help people talk about the process Lori Gottlieb pursued a career as a therapist relatively late in life She started out as a TV writer, but her time on ER spurred her to seriously think about a medical career She worked as a freelance writer while attending medical school and gradually began to feel pulled in too many different directions It was the helping people ...

    Audiobook narrated by Brittany Pressley Brittany was excellent I can see reasons for owing a hard copy as well as the Audiobook Lori Gottlieb is a psychotherapist who writes a Dear Therapist advice column She lives in Los Angeles She attended Yale and Stanford University She has an impressive life career resume We are taken into her therapy sessions with her clients We also walk through the door with Lori for sessions with her therapist This book is the real deal not cheesy cheap advice From both sides of the couch Lori is easy to relate to She has it terrific sense of humor She brings out thoughts feelings in us that melt naturally into our skin as easy as smoothing coconut oil on She s not obnoxious or too over the top She s honest reminding us how human we all are It s fascinating watching the way a therapist cracks open the slippery little salamanders that people all of us , don t want exposed especially when feeling too vulner...

    What is therapy like The author breaks down the walls and gives us a peek behind closed doors into her sessions with clients as well as sessions with her own therapist, who she consults after a devastating break up We also get glimpses into the author s education, career, and her personal life.I felt as if I got to know her and her patients and I became invested in their lives Details were changed for confidentiality, but the spirit of the stories remained true and the problems were real I cried with Julie and cheered when John and Rita made breakthroughs The author divulges some tricks ...

    ONE STAR AUDIOIt s not you, it s me Anne Bogel enthusiastically raved about this book on her weekly podcast What Should I Read Next She recommended it in the same breath as Ask Again, Yes and I am obsessed with that book So, despite my misgivings about listening to all the therapist speak, I used a precious Audible credit on Maybe You Should Talk to Someone A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed.Lori Gottlieb has had an interesting life working in Hollywood first as a tv producer on shows like Friends Then, quitting that glam life to enter medical school, then quitting medical school to train as a therapist All the while, freelance writing and selling her articles to magazines Got all that I could only listen to 3 or 4 hours of this tormentingly long novel before screaming and throwing in the towel Gottlieb comes off as c...

    I m really not sure what to say about this book The positives I like that it is open and honest about mental health, therapy, self love, and facing our fears even if we re unaware what those fears are More books with a focus on these themes need to be written I felt close to each character as I got to know them and truly cared about the outcome of each of their stories The not so positives I m not really sure what the point of this book is It seemed like a journal that the author later decided to publish which she kind of admits to at the end It was clearly therapeutic to her to write it and make sense of what she had been through, but I m not sure how helpful her breakup experience is to the rest of us The structure was a bit disorganized chronologically and hard to follow at times there did not seem to be a clear plot with problem and resolution I kept finding myself thinking, Wow, that s emotion or reactionary adjective here , butso what Is this relevant to the rest of the story s...

    Ever have a book that just completely blows you away This was THAT book for me.I listened to the audio which was perfection The narrator was one of the best I ve ever listened to but I had to have a print copy for highlighting putting on my 5 bookshelf The set up LA therapist Lori Gottlieb finds herself in need of her own therapist, so we get alternating chapters with her and her wise therapist Wendell interspersed with chapters of Lori s sessions with her clients I was SO in...

    Check out my review on Booktube

    I didn t really have many expectations going into this except that I had heard a few good things about it on Booktube But it s a book I ended up telling everyone I know about as I was reading it This follows Lori, a therapist who goes to therapy herself after her boyfriend breaks up with her and she finds herself unable to cope with it What was supposed to be one or two emergency sessions leads into Lori discovering her grief over the break up might have root issues than she expected Told partly as Lori goes through her therapy, and partly through the therapy of her own patients, this was a really unique and human memoir I saw a few reviews saying they didn t get the point of this memoir but I think it didn t necessarily need a point For me, it was just a really nice book that demystified therapy and attempted to show how every person has similar issues, struggles and fears and how even the most difficult of clients can find something of value in therapy I thought it was a book about humanity and all the different shades of people, but how we are all connected to eachother through human relationships and interactions The way the experiences of Lori s clients are mirrored with her own in therapy really drove home this idea for me I also thought this was just a really interesting book about a therapy and how it actually works and some of the psyc...

    I rarely give a book one star because I don t want to be mean, but this book was a complete waste of my time and it had such great reviews from so many people I feel like I was cheated out of however long it took...

    I m writing this review to see if I can make sense of my experience with this book Even though I found myself immersed in it for days, and making as much time as possible to read it, the experience ended up not being completely satisfying for a few reasons.My main complaint is the stories are real but are supposedly disguised enough to protect her clients privacy so they aren t real I was reading about those compelling characters and wondering what percentage of what she tells is the truth Fifty percent truth is not the same as ten percent truth, and what s the point of detailing a therapeutic process if you ve invented and mixed up the stories for literary privacy purposes I m a therapist myself and I know how unique each case is, how the effect of a sentence or an intervention depends on that person s particular context, so I don t see the value on basing it in real stories unless they re a hundred percent real Also, the dialogues can t be real either, unless she records the sessions, which she doesn t clarify It makes me wonder if it s all a bit polished up to fit the narrative, which feels a tiny ...
