Anne’s joyful presence and proven practices have helped thousands of individuals to express their unique genius, master the mindset of high performance, and create a sustainable and fulfilling life while making a meaningful contribution to the world.
“Anne has given me the wonderful gift of creating the space to hear my vision and hear my concerns and roadblocks that have emerged in the past around activating my vision for my work. Through open-ended, yet pointed questions she offered me the opportunity to identify what I wanted to work on and where I wanted to go, and also to name concerns and doubts and fears. She then guided me through visioning and embodied practices for finding the inspiration to see myself and the work I am doing and want to do in new ways, with powerful energy and practical suggestions. I felt very supported and encouraged by Anne, not just in that general feel-good way (though it was enjoyable and playful-feeling to do this work), but in very specific, concrete ways that brought her experience and way of thinking and organizational, attitudinal ideas to the issues specific to my work and context. I feel very hopeful about the path to creating what I have been envisioning for a long time. Thank you, Anne, for the attention you have been giving to creating new ways of looking at work and at what is possible, and for sharing that with me.”
~ Amy, Director of Professional Studies, Colorado
“Anne truly embodies the essence of a “joy coach”. In a natural, caring and highly accessible way, she succeeds — time and time again — in drawing my attention to patterns of thinking and behaving that can be modified for the better. I feel like we could explore the dimensions of the human psyche for hours on end, in a creative, culturally rich and socially diverse way. What arises in conversation with Anne is guidance for living our lives as authentic lights that can illuminate the way not only for ourselves, but also for others. This life-long journey — of interacting with family and friends, students, senior colleagues, and the partners in our most intimate relationships– presents tremendous opportunities for growth, and Anne sees this all very clearly. I am most grateful to her for her expert and heartfelt guidance!”

Referring to Joy Coaching via email: “Wow…thank you, Anne. You are so full of love and understanding of this process of awakening. I am cracking like a chick, pecking out of my shell… Like a baby chick it isn’t comfortable to peck out of shell as inside the shell is so comfortable, but if I stay in the shell I won’t evolve and I will die in that old comfort. You are a gift and a miracle to me — thank you thank you thank you. You are a woman of deep, deep wisdom and your deep connection is very supportive and helpful to me. You are a blessing.”
~ Emi, leadership coach
After receiving Joy Coaching via email: “I have read this email a couple of times because you really packed a lot into a small space! Of all the magnificent things you have ever said/written to me, this now stands out as the single most impactful, powerful, and soul-touching. Your words vibrate at a deeper-seeing level and you “see” things that you are able to put into words that captivate and stir. There are not words to express the gratitude for the gift you have given me. “
~ Carolyn, artist and author, Arizona
