Your therapist is listening to you, but what if she’s falling apart at the same time? Do you worry that she likes you, and looks forward to seeing you? Do you wonder if you sometimes put her to sleep? Don’t worry, these are common fears. 

Perhaps you see a therapist, and discuss the core issues in your life, such as your partner, your job, your children, your self-esteem, you name it. Perhaps you feel as if your life is coming undone at the seams, or you can’t seem to make the right decisions. Perhaps you have so many unanswered questions, and you feel like you’re falling apart. But what if your therapist is unravelling too?

Best-selling author Lori Gottlieb (Stick Figure; Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough) is a therapist and the creator of the Dear Therapist advice column for The Atlantic. Like many therapists, she sees one herself. In her new book, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, Lori takes us into her life, as she herself falls apart. We meet Boyfriend who coldly dumps her, we meet her funny kid, we meet relatable and fascinating patients, and we see troubling physical issues crop up as her anxiety mounts. Lori takes us with her as she goes through the difficult- and often really funny- process of trying to find the emotional steadiness and freedom Lori seeks. It’s funny, deeply revealing and moving.

In conversation with Joel Stein. Joel’s mother was a therapist, so he thinks he knows everything about the subject.  He wrote a humor column for Time magazine for 20 years, and wrote a column for the Los Angeles Times before that. His weekly pieces were hilarious, provocative, and ruffled feathers.  His new book, In Defense of Elitism, will be published in the fall.
