Maybe You Should Talk to Someone
Taking place over one year, and beginning with the devastating event that lands her in Wendell’s office, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone offers a rare and candid insight into a profession that is conventionally bound with rules and secrecy. Told with charm and compassion, vulnerability and humor, it’s also the story of an incredible relationship between two therapists, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious inner lives, as well as our power to transform them.

When a personal crisis causes her world to come crashing down, Lori Gottlieb ― an experienced therapist with a thriving practice in Los Angeles ― is suddenly adrift. Enter Wendell, himself a veteran therapist with an unconventional style, whose sessions with Gottlieb will prove transformative for her.
As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her own patients’ lives ― a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen who feels she has nothing to live for, and a self-destructive twenty-something who can’t stop hooking up with the wrong guys ― she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very questions she is bringing to Wendell.
