EmpowHER Media Adds Psychologist Dr. Julie T. Anne to Medical Advisory Board

Leading Social Health Company for Women Expands Panel of Health and Wellness Experts With Nationally-Renowned Eating Disorder Expert

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - May 1, 2012) - EmpowHER, an award-winning social health company for women, announces Dr. Julie T. Anné, nationally-recognized eating disorder specialist, clinical psychologist and expert in the fields of eating disorders, depression, anxiety, abuse, trauma and marital relationship dysfunction has joined the company's Medical Advisory Board. An esteemed eating disorder specialist, Dr. Anné was featured in the acclaimed E! documentary series What's Eating You, and is the Founder and Clinical Director of "A New Beginning," an innovative Arizona treatment facility specializing in the comprehensive care of all eating disorders.

As a member of the Medical Advisory Board, Dr. Anné works with EmpowHER's editorial leadership team to provide clinical expertise for the company's award-winning and industry-leading library of women's health and wellness content.

"As we look to expand our capacity for helping women with their whole health, including the mental health issues surrounding body image, weight management and disorders connected to both, Dr. Anné is a fantastic addition to our team," said EmpowHER Media Founder, Chair and CEO, Michelle King Robson. "Dr. Anné brings a unique background, steeped in clinical expertise, research and the use of transformational therapeutic techniques to the millions of women that come to EmpowHER each month looking for support and resources."

Dr. Anné has more than two decades experience as an impassioned eating disorder specialist, inspirational educator and dedicated advocate for those striving to resolve completely their debilitating, oftentimes life-threatening, struggle with eating disorders. Fiercely committed to dispelling the unfortunate myth that eating disorders are incurable, she believes that full recovery from all eating disorders is possible. Dr. Anné enjoys utilizing media opportunities to touch individuals beyond the psychotherapy walls, educating audiences regarding the true, underlying causes of eating disorders and, perhaps more importantly, how to halt the epidemic spread of eating disorders in alarmingly younger populations.

In addition to her specialized work with eating-disordered clients, Dr. Anné works extensively with individuals struggling with anxiety spectrum disorders, depression, the aftereffects of abuse and trauma, dysfunctional family-of-origin history, and low self-esteem as well as couples seeking to regain a lost sense of joy and satisfaction in their relationship.

"It is time to reverse the multigenerational legacy of conditional body acceptance, our ongoing struggle with weight and appearance, and the emotional -- and physical -- devastation called eating disorders," says Dr. Anné. "Joining the team at EmpowHER enables me to educate, inspire and facilitate meaningful change on an exciting, global platform. I'm honored, and most enthusiastic, about joining the Medical Advisory Board!"
