Coaching, Guidance & Workshops

I’m someone just like you – someone trying to keep it real, learning how to be here with it all!

But, in order to be here, you have to understand how you got here. Yeah, it feels hard. That’s just the resistance of habit.

With the skill, attention and relaxation of mindfulness resistance will relax, and you will learn a new way of being in life; you can be steady!

How do you begin?

You begin with exactly what is here, Now – by honoring the voice that led you here – with courage and curiosity – by answering the longing to unite with your body – your breath and the ground and the choices that have defined your world.

You begin by learning how to slow down – how to be present and be steady in all experience. And when you do,  light will fill the spaces that feel dark – illuminating those parts with compassion, understanding and accepting.

“Annette’s gentle approach invites you to open up and allows space for you to be exactly as you are. In that safe space, her insightful questions connect you with what’s happening inside of you, supporting your self-discovery process with patience, kindness and compassion. When I started working with her, my goal was to clarify the vision for my new business venture and create a plan to launch the business. She was a great partner in the visioning process, but more importantly, she helped build my confidence to achieve my goals. Annette sees the best in you and is an unwavering champion. I always left our sessions feeling supported, motivated, and empowered to succeed.  Annette’s compassion, insight, and enthusiasm make her an inspiring coach.”

“I sought out Annette’s expertise to help guide me in a career change.  Along the way, I became aware of other areas of my life that were out of balance.  She gently took the time to get to know me, to find out what was working and not working, and designed a customized life plan for goal setting, with reinforcements along the way.  Finding a new way to see the world, and stepping into the unknown, can be one of the scariest endeavors we can make and Annette made it fun and relatively pain-free.  She is warm, caring and trustworthy, making it easy to open up and show my vulnerability.  I now feel more confident making major life choices and I am happy to say I am now going in a new, more fulfilling direction. Take the time to sit with a Life Coach like Annette.  You will be glad you did!”

“It’s not easy finding courage. In fact, it’s terrifying! Annette, however, was the perfect coach to help me remove deep-rooted doubts that were cluttering my head and heart. Getting these out of the way allowed me to both reclaim and stand in my courage in order to start a new career, move into my new home, and transition into first-time motherhood. Her deep listening and warm presence created an inviting, judgement-free zone that made me feel safe, brave, loved, and able to believe in myself again. Annette is truly a gem and I have no doubt that she is the coach that will help you stand in your authenticity and lead you to meaningful life changes!”

S.L., New York, NY

“Annette has been an inspiration; allowing me to see myself as never before, with kindness, openness, non-judgment and acceptance. She has guided me back to my true path where I can fulfill my potential. Annette has shown me how ‘being’ rather than ‘knowing’ requires showing up and letting myself be seen.”
