Ann Dowsett Johnston

An award-winning journalist and best-selling author who went back to college in her 60s to become a psychotherapist, Ann Dowsett Johnston is writing her next chapter with authenticity and raw honesty. But that’s only a piece of her story. She also outed herself to the world as a recovering alcoholic after years of feeling like a failure despite outward success.

“…It wasn’t until I wrote my book, ‘Drink’where I felt like the most ‘Ann’ I’ve ever felt…the truth of the matter is, I wanted my book to be a secret friend to anyone, any woman, who wasn’t willing to say she had a drinking problem…”
