Taking care of your mental health is really important. So is knowing how to ask for help. Cue Lori Gottlieb, a psychotherapist and author of the New York Times bestseller “Maybe You Should Talk to Someone."
She told us why it's crucial to be honest during therapy, the secrets behind her office setup, and how working on the TV show “ER” led to her becoming a licensed therapist to help people feel better.
Lori explained why talking to someone about your problems is a good thing – and that sometimes even therapists go to therapy.
