About Annie

For over twenty years as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Nurse, I have had the privilege of helping thousands of individuals, couples, families and children of all ages get their lives back on track and stay on track.

I am a clinical member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and the Texas Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.  I received a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Northern Colorado, a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Colorado State University, and a nursing degree.

My passion is to help people of all ages solve their difficulties and problems in order to live happier lives. In therapy as well as through my public speaking, it has been rewarding to be able to improve the lives of thousands of couples, individuals and families.  With Annie Drake Seminars, I offer presentations, seminars, radio and television shows as well as workshops on a variety of relationship issues.   I am author of Help Me… I Have a Teenager!! The Nitty Gritty Guide to Parental Sanity.

For over twenty years I have had a wonderful marriage with my husband and together we have raised two delightful daughters.  My private practice is in Austin, Texas.
