Kara Loewentheil

After graduating Harvard Law School, litigating reproductive rights, and running a think tank at Columbia University, Kara Loewentheil did what every Ivy League feminist lawyer should do: Quit a prestigious academic career to become a life coach!

Less than a decade after leaving the law, Kara has taught hundreds of thousands of women how to close the “Brain Gap” that keeps them feeling anxious and dis-empowered. Her work enables women to identify the ways that sexist social messages impact their brains and how to rewire their thought patterns to create true, authentic confidence from within.

Her internationally top-ranked podcast, UnF*ck Your Brain, with 48+ million downloads, has been recommended by sources from The New York Times to the We Can Do Hard Things Podcast with Glennon Doyle.

And now, her internationally sought-out advice will be available to every woman in her new book TAKE BACK YOUR BRAIN!

"I freakin' LOVE Kara Loewentheil. If you're a woman, there's a reason why you're not speaking up when you deserve to, why you're picking apart everything you think is wrong with your body, and why you're not in control of your money. You've internalized age-old messaging, and it's time to interrupt that sh*t once and for all. In your hands is a playbook that teaches you how. Do NOT put it down."


New York Times bestselling author,
host of The Mel Robbins Podcast


“Unf*ck Your Brain podcaster Loewentheil’s galvanizing debut urges readers to close the gap between ‘feminist beliefs about our worth’ and the ‘patriarchal social conditioning’ that constrains them... Throughout, she takes care to account for the ways intersectional forces of race, body size, and economic status further complicate the issue. Women will be motivated to tackle the invisible barriers holding them back.”

"As a life coach who coaches women to get more of what they want, I know first-hand how many women struggle with advocating for themselves. And as an author myself, I know how many self-help books are either badly written or full of vague and generic advice. Take Back Your Brain is different. It's full of brilliant insight and effective tools you can start using to feel better immediately. This isn't recycled self help. It's the patriarchy smashing coaching approach we all need. Buy two copies, because you're going to want to share this book!"


Author of BARE & Host of theYou've Got Nerve podcast.

I'm Ready To Order

KARA LOEWENTHEIL's new book is a must-read for any woman who wants to break free from the limiting beliefs holding them back. Packed with practical tools and strategies, you’ll learn how to change your thinking starting immediately to feel better—and show up differently in your life—right away.


The book’s first section, “Reclaim Your Brain,” walks readers through the ways pervasive, sexist beliefs play into unconscious emotional and mental cycles. Loewentheil offers a written exercise called the “thought ladder” to help readers move from a negative or debilitating thought to a neutral or even positive thought. The book’s second section, “Reclaim Your Life,” covers body image, self-esteem, romantic relationships, money mindset and time. Each chapter is grounded in cultural and social history or reportage and offers practical exercises and prompts. Throughout, Loewentheil shares anecdotes and quotes from clients and the missteps and successes that make up her own story. While some of the book’s cognitive-behavioral techniques may be familiar to readers who’ve seen therapists, the feminist framework is a welcome approach for our still-evolving 21st-century society. And Loewentheil is an engaging, straightforward guide."

Check out my April appearance on Tamron Hall, where we discussed how being

"nice" and "liked" as a woman could be holding you back!
