Psychotherapist Lori Gottlieb says that people come to her practice for many reasons, but their stories tend to share common themes, including emptiness, dislocation and death. Gottlieb’s new book “Maybe You Should Talk to Someone” explores her patients’ overlapping struggles. It also documents her own experiences in therapy when she seeks help after a sudden breakup. We’ll talk to Gottlieb about how she guides her patients through difficult moments and what it’s like to become a patient herself.
