She received her Masters in Social Work and has since devoted her life to help individuals, couples and families find relief from their psychic pain. Ms. Anderson specializes in the treatment of trauma, substance abuse, family dysfunction and couple distress. Ms. Anderson was hired by Hazelden New York, a residential substance-abuse program in Manhattan, to create and coordinate the “Family & Friends Program” and the “Intensive Out-Patient Program (IOP).” Whether working as a journalist, actor, screenwriter, painter and/or therapist, Ms. Anderson has realized her passion as a communicator.

Continuing her outreach into the community, Ms. Anderson has made presentations to the teachers and administrators in the New York City Catholic Schools on methods to best cope with substance-abusing students. She became a well-known speaker at St. James Episcopal Church in Manhattan and St. Paul’s Church in Connecticut, covering such topics as how to improve family and couple communication, how to ‘spiritually’ parent your child and tools for child rearing. Her favorite lecture topic is “Surviving Your Teens Without Serving Time!” Ms. Anderson’s most recently presented a lecture on Dual-Diagnosis in May 2012 for NAMI (Than National Alliance Fri the Mentally Ill). As a result of her successful reputation as a public speaker, media outlets regularly contacted Ms. Anderson to share her expertise on-air. The academy-award winning director Robert Zemeckis, asked Ms. Anderson to consult and appear in his ShowTime documentary about substance abuse, “The Pursuit Of Happiness.” Hazelden invited her to discuss families and addictions on their promotional video. Ms. Anderson has been a guest on “CBS Morning,” “The Leon Charney Report,” CBS-Radio and “The Bill Mazur Show.” Ms. Anderson then created, wrote and produced “A New Day,” a call-in therapy show on WWRL, a New York City radio station. In her ever-expanding media career, Ms. Anderson is currently writing “SmarterLove: Keeping Kids Sober,” a guide for those parents, teachers, therapists and caregivers who have contact with children suffering with substance abuse. Ms. Anderson currently has a private practice in New York and Los Angeles, facilitates therapy groups and provides staff supervision at several treatment centers in Los Angeles.
