Moving submitted by chowcy on June 23, 2019, 12:53pm I grabbed this off the Express Shelf on a whim and was not disappointed. In this book, a therapist recounts the stories of her patients, as well as her experience getting therapy. But this book is so much more than that: Lori examines many of life's questions with a compassionate and thoughtful pen. This was a powerful reminder that we are not alone in our humanity.

initially absorbing, but ultimately alienating submitted by lisa on June 28, 2019, 2:32pm As this book goes on I become less trusting of its narrator. It's not that she is revealing stuff about therapy and therapists' being human. It's that the reader senses, more and more, her conventional hierarchy of admirability, whether it's in her culturally typical values for women (and our bodies) or clear thing for the famous. Throw in the snarkiness with which she talks about some behavior, and, if you're letting this stuff register, how can you get to the end without being so turned off by her attitudes that it ruins the fun of this look into therapy from a therapist's perspective?

This reader could not.

Everyone is human submitted by srdaly on June 13, 2020, 7:57am A great reminder that everyone is human, even those who appear professional only in our interactions with them.

"What is therapy, anyway?" plus a bit of a memoir submitted by sueij on June 16, 2021, 8:28pm The goal of this book appears to be to demystify therapy, with a bit of memoir thrown in. The author’s approach is two-fold: to talk about her own experience with therapy, and to talk about some of the clients she has provided therapy for. It’s a bit voyeuristic, and there’s some amount of train-wreck rubbernecking going on to read this, but overall I think she does what she set out to do: talk about why people choose to see a therapist, how people find one, discuss what sorts of things people go there for, and shed light on what happens in that closed-door room. As a licensed social worker who works in an office of therapists, I can confirm that while the range of particulars is huge, she broadly describes the experience well.

Stayed with me submitted by rachel on June 29, 2021, 10:53pm A year later, I still think about the characters in this book and the optimism I felt by the time I'd reached the end.

Hits a Spot submitted by LMahlmeister on August 6, 2021, 9:46am This book came up on my library request list at just the right time, I read it when I was going through a rough patch- so it really resonated with me. Gottlieb writes with that rare candid authenticity and through both her story, and the stories of her patients explores very human themes of love, loss, grief, and self-exploration. You really connect with every character in this story, and this book holds some healing for everyone.
