Lori Gottlieb is a renowned psychotherapist who writes the weekly “Dear Therapist” column in the Atlantic. And now, she’s out with a New York Times Best-Selling Book called Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, which weaves Lori’s experience doling out advice with her decision to seek counseling herself. This book is also being adapted as television series, so stay tuned for that!

In addition to her clinical practice, she writes The Atlantic’s weekly “Dear Therapist” advice column and contributes regularly to The New York Times and many other publications. Her recent TED Talk is one of the top 10 most-watched of the year.

As a member of the Advisory Council for Bring Change to Mind and advisor to the Aspen Institute, she is a sought-after expert in media such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, The CBS This Morning, CNN, and NPR’s “Fresh Air.” She is also the co-host of the new iHeart Radio podcast, “Dear Therapists,” produced by Katie Couric.

I’ve wanted to have Lori on this podcast for a long time now, and we had an amazing, wide-ranging discussion on how her decades of wisdom can translate to a better life. You’re not gonna want to miss this one!

  1. To Lori Gottlieb: please do not use "myth" to mean falsehood. It is a secondary meaning. The primary meaning is the saga of a people or culture. You might consider "canard" or "falsehood" or "false belief".

  2. My husband was so smooth at hiding his infidelity so I had no proof for months and was paranoid, I was referred to a private investigator by my close friend , and decided to give him a try.. the result was incredible because all my cheating husbands text messages, whatsapp, facebook and even phone conversations was linked directly to my cellphone. Mr James helped me put a round-the-clock monitoring on him and I got concrete evidence and gave it to my lawyer..if your husband is an expert at hiding his cheating adventures I suggest contact Mr James,He understood me well and helped me spy on his mobile phone to find out the truth.I saw all the evidence and i was heart Broken,I just want to openly say thank you to him for helping me get evidence against him,i feel so hurt. If you need help please contact him on Gmail (Worldcyberhackers) or WhatsApp +1 (267) 877‑3020 ;

  3. Thank you Lewis for this great interview. Lori is my latest find and she has started helping me out already with her podcasts, interviews and her book. She is a true sweetheart, really. Her compassion, her mind, her humanity, her wisdom and her sweet language make her who she is. When she defined Wholeness as Greatness, she conquered the last bit in my heart. So full of wisdom. Thank you both of you again

  4. This seems to be more about women not understanding, or be open to a man's vulnerable needs, where do men start to value all that women bring to the table? Partnerships are communication by both! It's 2020 not 1950. We women constantly step up to do what needs to be done…yes I listened but seriously it's about women being the fixer..???..

  5. the best way to forgive another person, is when you taste the sweetness of revenge, and all dissatisfaction it is left right there on the spot.and you are even able to smile at the person in the future 🙂

    Yes someone will say that it is not nicely done, but I can easily live with it. It is also a way of taking responsibility for one's own happiness, I would argue
