Biography

American counselor and radio personality. She publishes The Dr. Laura Perspective Magazine with information, advice and solutions, focusing on family, kids, morality and religion. Her books include "Parenthood by Proxy," HarperCollins, 2000.

A perky blonde, Dr. Laura has definite opinions on teen sex, homosexuality and other sensitive subjects that arouse strong support and violent disagreement.

Dr. Laura is not a psychologist nor a psychiatrist. Her doctorate is in Physiology only. She is also a licensed MFCC (Marriage, Family, Child Counselor) but not a psychologist. This has been a great misconception of Laura Schlessinger which she has in many ways been willing to perpetuate and exploit. Even in her TV listings she is being called a Psychotherapist, which is totally inaccurate.

She began a syndicated talk show 9/11/2000 but a few weeks later it went into a hiatus while producers sorted out their options. Public sentiment was so strongly adverse to Dr. Laura's abrupt opinions that sponsors were withdrawing. Her comments that homosexuality was "deviant" and "a biological error" brought out gay-rights activists in protest. The show did continue but with ratings that were at the bottom of the barrel until finally, it was cancelled on 4/30/2001.
