From a New York Times best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national advice columnist, a hilarious, thought-provoking, and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist’s world – where her patients are looking for answers (and so is she). One day, Lori Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose office she suddenly lands. As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients’ lives, she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell. Alice Becker Lehrer is the author of If We Could Hear Them Now, Encounters with Jewish Heroines from the Past and a retired Occupational Therapist and entrepreneur. She has served as the president of the Jewish Public Library and serves on the Board of Directors of Hope & Cope, working as creator and facilitator of their Bereavement Group, Mourning Walk.
