Anna “Annie” Peters, Ph.D., LP


Dr. Peters is a 2004 alum of Harmony Foundation. In 2008, she completed her PhD in Clinical Psychology from University of Colorado Boulder. She began her addiction treatment career at Hazelden-Betty Ford Foundation as a staff psychologist in 2006 and then as a professor in their Graduate School of Addiction Studies. She joined the Harmony team in 2014 as Chief Clinical Officer.

“I moved back to Colorado to work at Harmony because this is where I started my own recovery, and I was excited about the opportunity to “pay it forward” at a place that helped me so much. I know that transformational, spiritual experiences happen at Harmony because I had one here myself. Harmony’s mission means a lot to me, and I think this is a beautiful place to start a life of recovery. Harmony staff care deeply about every individual client and their families, and they work very hard to help each person have a unique, meaningful, and positive experience here. The dedication and kindness of the staff, the beautiful setting, and the high-quality care we provide make Harmony a fantastic place to work and to begin a journey of recovery.”
