Neuroscience of Dating

Are you wasting time

and money when dating?

Why did my date overshare in our first EVER text message exchange? Don't they understand TMI?!  What happens in my brain if I'm ghosted?  How can I get more quality dates in less time? "The Neuroscience of Dating" answers these questions and many, many more. 


Heidi Crockett LCSW, CMC, CSE graduated cum laude from Middlebury College, has her Masters from the University of Georgia, and post-graduate training in sexual health from the University of Michigan. She is a licensed psychotherapist and an AASECT-certified sexuality educator at the world-famous Hippocrates Health Institute.

Heidi offers psychotherapy, sexual health consults, and dating coaching.  She is a relational neuroscience expert with her first book on optimal mental health, "Caregiver Stress: Neurobiology to the Rescue," and her new book, "The Neuroscience of Dating," on optimal emotional intelligence.  Examples of presentations at Hippocrates include: Understanding the YES Brain, Exploring Our Inner Defense Mechanisms: The Fantasy Bond and Inner Critical Voice, The Importance of Sexual Health and The YES Brain in the Bedroom.  She also teaches Dr. Peter Levine's research on trauma resolution and leads meditations for total body relaxation and integration.


This chart from the book explains vertical integration, specifically how the competing functions of the prefrontal cortex vs the limbic brain can be understood and optimized.


Chapter 1 begins with Clarity, Chapter 2 is about your River of Brain Integration. Step by step, the author explains how your Clarity boat, including your dopamine engine, can flow F.A.ST. down the river to dating success.


Clarity + following the principles outlined in the book + right timing = SUCCESS! 


Who isn't confused?  There are too many dating websites to count.

What matters is your Clarity about who you are and what you seek in a partner.  Once you are clear, you can map out a plan including websites and in-person events that match your goal.  Use a dating coach for support along the way and to optimize your time.  Contact Heidi at

"A very interesting read with a fresh approach to dating advice."

"Heidi has taken really complicated neuroscience concepts and explained them clearly while also entertaining the reader.  This is not easy to do.  I'm impressed.
