We’ve assembled a highly-credentialed team of therapists to help anyone who is struggling with drug and alcohol abuse and/or mental health issues like eating disorders, depression, anxiety.
Ann is founder and president of The Hull Institute and The Miller Center. She is a Licensed Independent Social Worker with over 35 years of experience, specializing for the past 21 years in the treatment of eating disorders and addictions. Ann received her Master of Science in Social Work from Columbia University and her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Colorado. To learn what was necessary to successfully open and operate a private practice, Ann also got her MBA.
After working in several areas of social work including crisis care, advocacy and case management, Ann continued to use these skills as she received her eating disorder training at the Cleveland Clinic.
Recognizing an unmet need in Northeast Ohio, Ann opened The Hull Institute in 2003 to help people who otherwise might not receive the care they need to find and maintain recovery.
Ann recognizes the importance of being an educator as well as a student. Ann leads seminars and workshops and remains a student herself. In recognizing that trauma and PTSD are significant factors in eating disorders, Ann is trained in CRM (Comprehensive Resource Model), a trauma healing technique that helps survivors reconnect with their bodies as they work through their trauma to find lasting recovery.
Ann is known as a highly skilled interventionist. Eating disorders and other addictions trick the brain into believing the problem “isn’t that bad.” Hence, interventions by family are sometimes necessary.
Ann, like all of us, found 2020 to be challenging. Nothing like starting up 2 new businesses during a pandemic! First, Ann began work to open Hull House Recovery Residences, a recovery home for women with eating disorders.
The other practice is the new Miller Center, a division of The Hull Institute. While eating disorders treatment has been Ann’s passion, she has a long history of addressing a myriad of challenges peoples face. During the pandemic, it became clear that more and more people were suffering, and finally willing to accept help. Where there is a need, Ann works hard to find solutions.
Ann is a strong believer in the importance of work-life balance. As such, she is a curler–that ice sport people talk about, can’t figure out exactly, and enjoy watching during the Winter Olympics. She curls with her husband 3-4 days a week in the winter as a fun way to socialize with others and keep her brain and body healthy. She is proof that anyone can have a great time participating in an activity even if you aren’t very good at it!
