We all want our kids to thrive. I help you make that happen.
FOR PARENTS & GRANDPARENTS
YOU WANT TO BE THE BEST PARENT/GRANDPARENT YOU CAN BE AND
You want some guidance.
You're a first time parent who wants to provide the best start for your child
You find yourself on your own, without guidance
You wonder what parenting trends are solid, which you need to ignore and what works for you
You and your partner want to get on the same page about how to parent
You're a grandparent navigating your role and the complications of parenting your adult child
But you don't have anyone to help you with these things
Ann’s voice is so sweet and gentle and made me feel like ‘I can do this!’ I found it helpful, and a great way to prepare. I know parenting is going to be a little chaotic, but it’s going to be okay.
FOR EXPECTANT COUPLES, PARENTS & GRANDPARENTS
You can expect to…

Create an intention/goal each session with practical tips, unique to your child
You want to be the best parent for your child and you’re wondering how to do that.
If we haven’t already met at a coffee shop or at the park where I exercise most afternoons… Hey there! I’m Ann.
I’m a combination child development nerd and a parent cheerleader. 🤓 📣 I can usually explain a child’s behavior with developmental insight and your responses to that behavior with gentle questions that lead to self-reflection.
I love helping others be the best for their child while being gracious with themselves. By applying what I’ve studied about human and child development, I help you understand both yourself and your child because there’s a lot going on between you, your partner, your extended family and your close community.
We all need help, I sure did when my kids were little (and teenagers!) Many feel like nobody ever taught them how to parent, especially the growing number of stay-at-home dads. Some worry that they need to do better, like they’re never good enough. Others may be afraid their own life experience of being parented is going to affect how they respond and want to break unhealthy cycles. Some feel overwhelmed at the prospect of guiding a child through an uncertain, unpredictable world and want direction. And some feel unable to be present with their child due to long work hours and seek ways to make the most of the time they do have.
Coaching will take these challenges head on – without judgement, blame or shame. You’ll find hope and guidance as you find ways to be the parent you want to be and help your child thrive throughout childhood, adolescence and into adulthood. 🥰
