Daughters HEAL Book Study

A virtual book study integrated with Brainspotting and other healing modalities

with Ann Dillard, LMFT

6-Week Virtual Book Study
Tuesdays, April 4 - May 9, 2023

The mother-daughter relationship is the blueprint and foundation for other relationships to form. However, what happens when this foundation is wounded or impacted by transgenerational trauma? Other relationships may crumble or be impacted in a negative way. 

Did you know?

Mother-daughter relationships are scientific...
The part of the brain that regulates emotions is more similar between mothers and daughters than any other intergenerational pairing.

A mother's mental health experiences are good predictors of her daughter's mental health and growth.

Mothers often favor their daughters because of shared experience bias.

This relationship is often stronger than any other intergenerational family relationship.

Ann Dillard
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am dedicated to helping individuals find hope and achieve their full potential. I operate a successful private practice in Georgia and Minnesota, providing mental health services to teens and their families. My expertise includes addressing issues such as trauma, anxiety, depression, and self-esteem.

One of my areas of focus is working with mothers and daughters to strengthen their relationships and overcome challenges. I have developed various resources and tools for parents, and have co-authored several books and other publications on this topic. My work with mothers and daughters extends globally, earning me the reputation as The Mother-Daughter Healer.

In addition to my clinical work, I am currently pursuing my Doctoral Degree and conducting research on the use of Brainspotting as a method for improving attachment in Caribbean-American mother-daughter relationships.
