Dear Therapist

In my weekly “Dear Therapist” column for The Atlantic, I tackle readers’ dilemmas, big and small, by sharing how a therapist might think about the kinds of issues brought in by patients.  Before this, I answered reader questions in a weekly advice column for New York Magazine’s The Cut. I love hearing from readers all over the world whose letters remind me how essentially similar we all are. 

A few of my readers’ favorite columns are the ones about attractiveness and self-worth,  spouses who threaten divorce when they argue, and unconscious processes in choosing a partner.
