Lori Gottlieb is a psychotherapist and New York Times bestselling author of four books, most recently Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough, a surprising look at modern love, marriage, and what really matters for romantic happiness. A New York Times Editors' Choice selection, the book also became a bestseller overseas and has been translated into fourteen foreign editions. She has also contributed to several popular anthologies, covering topics ranging from science, technology, and medicine to selfhood, temperament, and mothers (that last collection won the National Jewish Book Award).

A contributing editor for The Atlantic Magazine and frequent contributor to The New York Times, Lori is known for her work as a keen observer and commentator at the intersection of psychology and culture. Her stories jumpstart conversations on topics that resonate widely, whether it’s her Atlantic Magazine cover, “How to Land Your Kid in Therapy: Why the Obsession with our Kids’ Happiness May be Dooming Them to Unhappy Adulthoods” or her New York Times Magazine cover, "Does a More Equal Marriage Mean Less Sex?"

Off the page, Lori has contributed on-air pieces to the public radio programs All Things Considered, Weekend Edition, This American Life, and Marketplace. Her work has also been optioned for film and television by a bizarrely diverse roster: Martin Scorsese (who described her book Stick Figure as “Holden Caulfield goes on a misguided diet”), Toby Maguire, Téa Leoni, Jonathan Demme; and she has appeared as a guest on shows such as The Today Show, CNN, MSNBC, The CBS Early Show, Good Morning America, NPR’s Talk of the Nation, and Oprah Radio.

She is currently writing a new book, Girl Walks Into A Therapy Room, which is being adapted for television at ABC, and her companion weekly New York Magazine column, “What Your Therapist Really Thinks,” will debut in 2017.

In her therapy office, Lori works with couples and individuals on a wide array of issues, including depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationship difficulties, parenting, infertility, identify formation, grief, and loss. She also works via Skype with clients worldwide in a consultancy capacity.
