Ann Dunnewold, PhD


Ann Dunnewold is a licensed psychologist and author from Dallas. Life is full of shoulds, how-tos, and endless checklists, meant to inspire us to be the perfect mother, worker, or woman. Ann’s mission is to arm us all against these pressures of modern life, embodied in sneaky beliefs and insidious, locked in habits. Through her blog, “Who Says?,” she challenges the unrealistic expectations—in our own heads and wider society--that keep us overstressed, overtired, and overwrought. Her writing offers fresh perspectives and concrete problem-solving, drawn from her clinical practice in psychology, research on the brain, and her own stumbling path to becoming a calm, contributing, citizen of our evolving world.
