Welcome to Curious Minds with Dr. L, a podcast where we use curiosity as the cure for stagnation in our lives.

As a psychologist, I’ve worked with individuals, couples, and families for over fifteen years, helping them peel back the layers of what keeps them standing still and gently nudging them to move towards their goals.

After countless sessions, I have learned one thing I know to be true: When we get curious, we change. And through this podcast, you will see that when we allow the answers to our curious questions bubble to the surface, we will find the path we are meant to be on.

So if you feel stuck, lost, unhappy, confused about what you want next, or like you just want to quit–and let’s be honest–that’s all of us, this podcast will give you a window into how best to use curiosity to find your way and the insight you seek to find the path you’re meant to follow.

Awesome conversations!

Dr. L has an awesome way of exploring important topics. She goes beyond just surface level stuff and really dives deep with guests. And her mini episodes are great - she’s funny but helpful all at the same time.
