Guest Profile

Anne Katherine

For over forty years, therapist Anne Katherine has shepherded clients into their inner spaces that held the forgotten wounds and hidden sorrows that shape a persons perceptions and choices. Once there, she knew how to bathe those sacred places with a compassion that brought both soothing and startling insight, opening them to new dimensions within themselves and new possibilities for their lives.

Anne discovered that gaining skill in setting boundaries provided essential protection for any improved paths a person wanted to walk. Thus, as with most of her books, the trilogy on boundaries arose from her desire to give people tools to better their lives.

Anne Katherine specializes in helping people with boundaries, eating disorders and food addiction. She wrote the first simple book on boundaries and was talking about food addiction twenty years before most people had even heard of it. She holds an MA in psychology from Vanderbilt University and has over forty years experience as a therapist in agencies, hospitals, and private practice.

In her professional work, Anne has created numerous programs and processes including:
How to fix a broken appetite switch
Recovering from addiction to misery and self-sabotage
Discovering your life's purposes

Although she has retired from private practice and offers very few workshops, you can still find much of Anne's work in her nine books that focus on some aspect of healing yourself. Anne has been on television and radio, including Lifetime, CNN, NPR, and many others. Her credentials included Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Regression Therapist, Certified Eating Disorders Specialist, Registered Hypnotherapist, and Master of Arts, Psychology.
