Anne M. Huffman
Psychoanalyst, Newport Beach, California
Anne Huffman was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She studied in Europe for a year prior to attending the University of California, Los Angeles, where she received a BA degree in history. She married John Huffman in 1964, and they have served four churches since 1965 (First Church Tulsa, Key Biscayne Presbyterian Church, First Church Pittsburgh, and St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Newport Beach, CA). They have three girls: Suzanne (deceased in 1991), Carla, and Janet, and three grandchildren.
In 1987 Anne earned a Master of Marriage and Family Counseling degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. Pursuing postgraduate work, she was certified as a psychoanalyst and received her Doctor of Psychology from the Newport Psychoanalytic Institute. She has been in private practice in Newport Beach, California, since 1988.
Her volunteer services include being an editorial advisor for Partnership Magazine, a chaplain at Hoag Memorial Presbyterian Hospital in Newport Beach, and a board member for Leighton Ford Ministries. As an active member of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, she served on the Mental Illness Task Force and is part of their Grief Group Ministry. She has led a yearly grief group since 1994. Anne’s personal experience of deep pain over the illness and death of their daughter Suzanne, coupled with the emotional and spiritual understandings of the grief process, has become a vitally important dimension to her volunteer speaking and professional work.
As a Fuller board member, Anne’s passion has been the students, serving on and chairing the Student Affairs Committee, and serving on the Advancement Committee. She has hosted donor dinners in her home and chaired the Richard Mouw retirement gala and the 50th Anniversary celebration event for the School of Psychology.
