Certified Life Coach
Anne is a Certified Life Coach specializing in working with neurodiverse individuals, including those on the Autism Spectrum, with ADHD, and other related traits. Anne obtained her life coaching certification from World Coach Institute, an International Coach Federation (ICF) accredited program, and also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of Central Florida.
Anne’s experience with neurodiversity is both professional and personal, as she learned in late 2018 that she is on the Autism Spectrum herself. This first-hand knowledge of neurodiversity is something that is invaluable to Anne when working with her clients, as she has a direct understanding of their challenges, and more importantly, their strengths. She seeks to help her clients thrive by helping them create lives that work for them, and helping them to become their best neurodivergent selves, and embrace who they are.
Anne helps her clients with skill-building, improving executive functions such as planning and organization, and emotional intelligence skills such as self-awareness and emotional regulation. She also helps clients manage their sensory needs and reduce sensory overload, which is common among neurodiverse individuals. Other helpful skills Anne works with clients include independent living skills such as self-care; budgeting; time-management; task completion; resume creation; interviewing for, getting, and keeping a job; maintaining relationships; enhancing communication skills; creating and maintaining daily routines; and self-advocacy.
Anne’s goal with every coaching session is to help her clients feel truly heard, seen, and understood. One of her personal mottos is “Celebrate Differences”, and this something she practices every day in her life, and her coaching practice. She is a fierce advocate for neurodiverse individuals, a staunch ally to the LGBTQ+ community, and a tireless supporter of social and racial justice.
Anne understands the importance of good mental health, and works with her clients to help them improve theirs. As a Life Coach at MySpectrum, Anne is able to work hand-in-hand with our team of Therapists should you need the additional support of a licensed Therapist.
Outside of work, Anne enjoys spending time with her family and friends, including her wonderful husband and their beloved cat, Robin. She loves walks in nature, and music of all kinds.
