In therapy, we aim for self-compassion (am I human?), verses self-esteem (a judgement: am I good or bad?)

Lori Gottlieb


One study says that 1 in 5 Americans have a mental illness, and only around 50% of those with moderate-to-severe impairment seek help.

There are many reasons someone wouldn't go to therapy when they need it. But for Lori Gottlieb, it was hard because she was a professional therapist herself.

In Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, HER Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed, Gottlieb recounts being left reeling after a breakup with the person she thought would be her forever.

Through going to therapy herself, Gottlieb gained insights not only about her own mind but about the therapy journey from the patient's side.

This book is a fascinating peek into psychotherapy from the perspective of a therapist who needed it herself.
