Lori Gottlieb is an American writer and psychotherapist, who is best known for her weekly "Dear Therapist" advice column in The Atlantic. She was born in Los Angeles, California, and studied language and culture at both Yale and Stanford University.
While in her 20s, Gottlieb worked as a film and TV executive until she decided to return to Stanford to study medicine. It was during medical school that she published her first book, an experience that inspired her to pursue a career in writing. Since then, Gottlieb has published New York Times bestsellers, which have been translated into 20 languages.

Gottlieb went on to become a commentator for National Public Radio and a contributing editor for The Atlantic. She has written for many publications, including The New York Times, Time, Slate, People, Elle, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and O, The Oprah Magazine. She frequently appears as an expert on mental health topics on television and radio such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, The CBS Early Show, CNN, the BBC, and NPR.

After her child was born, Gottlieb went back to school again, this time to Pepperdine University, where she earned a graduate degree in clinical psychology. As she writes in her website:

As both therapist and writer, I’m interested in going inside ourselves in order to get outside of ourselves—to experience the ways in which connection reveals our humanity and, ultimately, transforms us.
