Yael Schonbrun, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist, assistant professor at Brown University, co-host of Psychologists Off the Clock: A podcast about the science and practice of living well, and mother of three. Yael’s work draws on scientific research, her clinical experience, ancient wisdom, and her own personal experience with her three little boys.
Yael is the author of a book coming out in November called Work, Parent, Thrive. It has twelve science backed strategies to ditch guilt, manage overwhelm, and grow connection (when everything feels like too much).
