About Harriet Cannon

Harriet Cannon

As someone who has lived, worked, and traveled extensively around the United States and internationally, I am drawn to how culture and the places we live affects who we are and how we get along with each other. My husband and I now live on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State but have not lost our wanderlust.

 

In my three decades as a licensed psychotherapist specializing in intercultural relationships, I have also been a speaker and subject matter expert for businesses, professional publications and at conferences. My first book, Mixed Blessings: A Guide to Multicultural and Multiethnic Relationships, published in 2013, is co authored with my colleague and friend, Rhoda Berlin (http://www.berlin-counseling.com) See Sample chapters on ‘Read the Book’ on this website.

 

Recently I have concentrated on writing creative non-fiction and fiction. Some samples are on this website. Currently, I am working on a novel.  Check back for news!
