Ever wonder what your therapist is really thinking? Now you can find out ...

Meet Lori Gottlieb, an insightful and compassionate therapist whose clients present with all kinds of problems. There's the struggling new parents; the older woman who feels she has nothing to live for; the self-destructive young alcoholic; and the terminally ill 35-year-old newlywed. And there's John, a narcissistic television producer, who frankly just seems to be a bit of a jerk. Over the course of a year, they all make progress.

But Gottlieb is not just a therapist - she's also a patient who's on a journey of her own. Interspersed with the stories of her clients are her own therapy sessions, as Gottlieb goes in search of the hidden roots of a devastating and life-changing event.

Personal, revealing, funny, and wise, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone opens a rare window onto a world that is most often bound by secrecy, offering an illuminating tour of a profoundly private process.

'If you have even an ounce of interest in the therapeutic process, or in the conundrum of being human, you must read this book. It is wise, warm, smart and funny, and Lori Gottlieb is exceedingly good company.'
- Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet

'I've been reading books about psychotherapy for over a half century, but never have I encountered a book like Maybe You Should Talk to Someone- so bold and brassy, so packed with good stories, so honest, deep and riveting. I intended to read a chapter or two but ended up reading and relishing every word.'
- Irvin Yalom MD, author of Love's Executioner, and other Tales of Psychotherapy, and professor emeritus of psychiatry at Stanford University

'Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is funny, hopeful, wise, and engrossing - all at the same time. Lori Gottlieb takes us inside the most intimate of encounters as both clinician and patient and leaves us with a surprisingly fresh understanding of ourselves, one another, and the human condition. This is a daring, delightful, and transformative book.'
- Arianna Huffington, founder of Huffington Post and founder & CEO of Thrive Global
