A Note From Anea
From the time I began working with teens almost two decades ago, I was able to identify the girls functioning below their potential because they were struggling with their own self worth and identity. I became determined to be a mentor and guide who would help provide these girls with the motivation and the permission to be their very best selves.
Fortunately, my formal education and training, as well as my diverse life experiences, positioned me to be able to do just that. Born and raised in Canada, I graduated with a degree in Education from the University of Winnipeg, one of Canada’s top ten schools and more recently completed my Master’s Degree in Women’s Spirituality. My training as a Life Coach, specifically geared to working with girls and women, was completed under Tami Walsh, the first woman in the nation to create a life coaching practice specializing in teen girls.
In 2001, I began working one-on-one with girls as both a private teacher and mentor. Within a short time, my clientele had grown to the point that I was able to forego the classroom to dedicate myself fulltime to building a practice that would provide a combination of education and wellness ‘consulting’ exclusively to teen girls.
My work with moms of teenage daughters began after noticing similarities in the internal struggle many of them faced as their daughters moved through adolescence. I came to realize that both mom and teen most often find themselves simultaneously experiencing a challenging transitional time in their lives. As my own daughter moved into adolescence, I was able to bring another layer of experience to the coaching relationship and connect with moms on an even deeper level.
Today, the opportunity to guide a mother, her daughter or both on their own personal paths of self-exploration and discovery is truly an honor that I cherish.
