Lori Gottlieb, Yale College '89, not only publishes her own stories, but also writes The Atlantic's weekly "Dear Therapist" advice column and contributes regularly to the NY Times and many other publications. She is also a TED speaker, a ​member of the Advisory Council for Bring Change to Mind and advisor to the Aspen Institute. She has written hundreds of articles related to psychology and culture, and she is a sought-after expert in media such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, The CBS Early Show, CNN, and NPR’s “Fresh Air.” Learn more at LoriGottlieb.com.

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone - "a glorious, honest, raw memoir you can't put down" -- currently being adapted as a TV series with Eva Longoria.

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. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but.

You can learn more about Lori and purchase her book here:    https://www.lorigottlieb.com/

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.

We greatly look forward to seeing you at this event!
