Therapist Lori Gottlieb places herself foursquare in the center of this autobiographical saga. She sought therapy for herself when her boyfriend unexpectedly broke off their relationship. She depicts her story of self-discovery with her therapist, and shares tales of her therapy patients as they work through their issues. She describes the turns, twists and roadblocks she encounters as a patient and a therapist. Using these collective experiences, Gottlieb explains the therapeutic process and provides an insider’s view of a therapy practice. When she asks if maybe you should see someone, she’s speaking from the front lines.
