Anne Hearon Rambo, Ph.D., has as a child and family therapist at Austin Child Guidance Center, the Texas Research Institute of Mental Sciences (TRIMS), and Houston Child Guidance Center. At the Texas Research Institute of Mental Sciences, she participated in an innovative study that assessed the success rate of family therapy with young adults recently diagnosed with schizophrenia. Her advocacy for these young adults as they struggled to escape their diagnostic labels fired her commitment to advocating for clients within larger systems.
Her first book, Practicing Therapy: Exercises for Growing Therapists, came out in 1993, while her second book, I Know My Child Can Do Better: A Frustrated Parent's Guide to Educational Solutions, came out in 2001. This book reflects the insights generated by Dr. Rambo's ChildFit program. ChildFit helps parents to navigate the school system. She received the 2002 Contributions to Diversity Award at the Florida Association for Marriage and Family Therapy Conference in Orlando for ChildFit's advocacy efforts on behalf of immigrant children, children of color, and special needs children.
Dr. Rambo helped to found SUPERB, Students United with Parents and Educators to Resolve Bullying, which is now its own fully funded private nonprofit agency. She currently supervises master's and doctoral level family therapy interns providing services in several public and charter schools. She is also a community representative on the board of the school district's Credentialed by 26 project, a federally funded graduation readiness program.
