For more than three decades, Belgian-born psychotherapist, author, speaker, and podcast host Esther Perel has worked with couples and families and made substantial contributions to the field of modern sexuality.
Both of her parents were survivors of Nazi concentration camps. After World War II, they settled in Belgium, where Esther was born in 1958. Growing up, she watched her parents embrace life even in the wake of unthinkable trauma.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in educational psychology, French literature, and linguistics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel, and a master’s degree in expressive arts therapies from Lesley University in Massachusetts.
. In 1984, she opened her private practice as a therapist in New York. (In addition to her many high-profile speaking engagements and consulting jobs, she still sees patients twice a week.) Early on, she was particularly interested in couples and families with multiple cultural, racial, and religious identities. Eventually, her gift for illuminating the ever-evolving conventions of sexuality came to the forefront.
