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

INDIVIDUALIZED COACHING

You can expect to

  • Identify the stage of parenting you are in and how to best respond to your child’s needs

  • Explore how your own childhood experiences affect your parenting

  • Understand where your child is developmentally and how to support them 

  • Learn to support your own health and well-being so you feel strong

  • Understand how to process the emotions around the demands of parenting

  • Create an intention/goal each session with practical tips, unique to your child

Working with Ann helped me to understand that I needed help understanding my own child. It’s natural to think that I, as her father, am best situated to see everything about my daughter, but that is not true. Ann helped us gain a perspective that can only come from being outside of the system. Working with Ann made a difference in our interactions and so our relationship.

You want to be the best parent for your child and you’re wondering how to do that.

You're in the right place.

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. 🥰

Ann was an instrumental part of my development as a parent, and my children would not be the same today without her help. Not everything required of a parent came naturally to me, and Ann was there to provide perspective on how my actions and reactions, or lack thereof, shaped my children’s development and behavior.

Ann has been an incredible influence on my mothering. She encouraged me and helped me see little ways I could connect with my children right where they were and to slow down to enjoy it. Years have gone by and I am still drawing from the well of knowledge she helped dig in my life. I never discount a child. Ann taught me to recognize the joy in knowing people of all ages for who they are not what they could or should be.

Insightful. Attentive. Perceptive. Good listener. Calm. Gentle. Practical advice. These are words that describe our experience working with Ann as a parenting coach. Everyone in our family benefited from our time together. Years later, we still practice some of the things she opened our eyes to about our child. It was 110% worth it!

Ann’s knowledge and resources have been a huge help in learning to help my baby who has some significant delays due to long term hospitalization. She continues to help me know what to look for in age appropriate ways to connect and play with my little one.
