It is my firmly held belief that
everyone, regardless of race,
age, size or gender identity,
is special, unique and potent, and that each of us is an au-
thentically contributing human being.  To enable clients to ex-
perience their full potential, I create a warm, safe, confiden-
tial and nonjudgmental environ-
ment, which fosters healing, empowerment, growth and inspiration.

Are you experiencing any of the following?

I have been coaching individuals, couples, families and other groups, and leading workshops internationally, since 1985.  Two of my greatest teachers and mentors have been Virginia Satir, founder of International Human Learning Resources Network and Avanta, and Stan Dale, founder of the Human Awareness Institute.  I have a BA in humanities from New College of California, and am a certified graduate of the Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy.

"My personal work with Anne was the most transformational experience in my life.  Through her insightful, skillful, generous and compassionate presence I was able to experience at a deeper level and was then able to finally make peace with my past and love myself as the precious gift that I am."
Leilani Jennings, Ph. D. -- California
Clinical Psychologist
"Anne is better than any therapist I've worked with in my life.  She has helped me become a better partner in relationships and more self-respecting.  I appreciate the clarity with which she sees my issues, and the tenderness with which she delivers them to me. And she's fun to be with."
Alicia Forester -- California
"I have now attended several workshops with Anne Watts and consulted with her privately for financial advice.  The things that come through so consistently and clearly are her integrity, wisdom and 'groundedness.'  And of course, this is exactly what we want when we are seeking guidance related to love or money.  Another striking thing about Anne is her personal presence and compassion.  It is as if she has always known you and perhaps been your unconditionally loving mother in a past life.  So whether you are seeking personal growth, relationship wisdom or financial growth, Anne is one of the best resources I know."
Kelly Bryson, MFT -- California
Author, "Don't Be Nice, Be Real"
Certified Trainer, Center for   
Nonviolent Communication
"Anne, we are so grateful and thrilled to have found you.  Your approach is so straightforward, loving and practical.  You get to the heart of the matter and are not afraid to ask the hard questions.  You have our undyling love, respect and gratitude."
N. T. -- California
"When I think about all the therapists, teachers and mentors I have had and all the time I spent with them, it's funny to feel how much I shifted in such few interactions with you.  A simple question from you helped me set myself free."
R. M. -- California
