I liked the patients’ stories — little stories within a story. But there were definitely some inconsistencies that led me to believe that they were complete fiction and the time jumps felt a little sloppy. I also didn’t find the narrator that credible — from what I understand of the timing of her careers she’s a relatively novice therapist and seemed way too caught up in her own drama to be writing the book on going to therapy. Decent read especially if you do go to therapy and want a little insight into the other side of the room. But not one I would rave about.
I thought that the story lines of each of the characters in the book were wonderful and moving. It had a lot of positive messages about the process of growing and learning from mistakes. For me, one downside was the writing style. It's just my personal preference, but I felt that it rambled a bit and could be somewhat slow paced. My other downside (and this is more personal than anything to do with the quality of the book) was that the author spoke negatively of online therapy more than once in the book. I get that that is just her opinion, but for some, online therapy is the only option. It is for me, so it made me sad to read the negative things about it that the author had to say.
If you want to know how and why therapy is supposed to work, this is excellent. Be prepared to be introduced to some sad and depressed “characters.” Wish that the author had addressed other therapeutics such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Would have been interesting to learn more about techniques for addicts or others who are even more resistant to participate than these examples.
I’m bummed I didn’t like this book more. Some parts were wonderful and poignant, and I loved the stories of John and Julie. As someone who has had my life changed for the better by mental health professionals, I loved this window into a therapist’s world. But I also found myself skimming parts to get through the book quicker. A bummed 6/10 from me. I promise I wanted to like this book more than that, but oh well.
There were pieces of enlightenment and understanding throughout the book, but for me it didn't flow well. Other than feeling I would like her as my therapist, I have a difficult time describing what I learned. Perhaps the lesson was that all behaviors and beliefs may be grounded in some personal experience and the filters through which we experienced the experience.
An interesting concept for a book on this book of short stories about people who were in therapy including this therapist herself at first I wasn’t interested but she gets to know each patient and the therapist it was enlightening in someways pick it up read it I think you might enjoy it not the best thing I’ve read certainly not something you should not read.

A therapist goes to see a therapist when her bf says he loves her but doesn’t want to be with someone who has kids. All information she could have used YESTERDAY. I enjoyed the way she processed this news as well as the nuggets from clients she provided help to.
