Say Goodbye to Fear

Say Hello to Freedom

You’re aware that something is limiting your success or happiness. It’s not others. It’s you. You have 100% control of your life. While you may be worried, intimidated or use blame as crutch, you have the power to go forward. It’s stronger than a nudge! Your drive is propelling and motivating you to live a more fulfilling and rewarding life.

You are in the best possible place. You are ready to invest in yourself!

As an experienced professional, I have the expertise to identify your blocks, challenges, and opportunities. To set the direction, keep you on course and hold you accountable. As your life coach, we will work together addressing the impasse. As your mentor I will teach you skills and strategies that strengthen you for your journey. As your trainer you will learn how to establish habits and beliefs that will transform you and elevate your future.

What Does Life Coaching Look Like?

I know you’re curious about how it works. The most important thing to understand is that life coaching is all about you and your desire to enhance and improve your life. It’s a rewarding awakening where you embrace change and move boldly, fearlessly, and confidently to a life brimming with passion and purpose.

I look through a lens different than yours to observe your progress and purpose. I give you informed  insight, perspective, and guidance as I hold you accountable and challenge you every step on your journey.

    About JoAnn Schauf

    JoAnn Schauf began her professional counseling career in California. Later, as a counselor in schools and colleges in Texas, JoAnn supported students, families and educators providing guidance, presenting professional trainings, and creating innovative programs.

    JoAnn responded to the needs of parents of adolescents by founding Your Tween & You in 2016. She received a Top Entrepreneur Award in Dallas in 2017. She’s a member of the Texas Counseling Association, contributes to local media, and stays in contact with her readers with a bi-monthly newsletter, The Tween Times.

    A sought-after coach and speaker, JoAnn empowers and inspires parents with the system and secrets to thrive together during adolescence. She understands that it’s challenging to be in the body of an adolescent, and equally frustrating to be the parent of one. Those she’s touched call her the “Parent Whisperer” because what they learn and apply transforms their relationships with their children.

    JoAnn and her husband Dave raised four children, all of whom who are now successful adults with families of their own. Every holiday season her family and friends eagerly await a box of her famous fudge. It won’t be long before JoAnn’s book for parents of tweens will be available.

    Is a Life Coach Right For Me?

    “I worked with JoAnn for multiple sessions her help and coaching was practical and effective. She was very helpful in creating action steps that helped me with my situation with my Tween. It’s very difficult for adults to understand the changing mind she helped me translate the situations. Very positive outcomes but you must put the work. Strongly recommend.”


    “I contacted JoAnn when I found myself “walking on eggshells” in my relationship with my beloved daughter. I was lost as to how to open communication and experience the closeness we once had. The positive changes started when I told my daughter that I was talking with someone because I wanted a better relationship with her. She was deeply touched that our relationship was so important to me that I would seek help to understand what I could do to improve it. With JoAnn’s compassionate insight I was able to see things that I could not have on my own. JoAnn provides a completely safe, and affirming environment. She is an awesome listener, and she is a great resource for books, articles, and websites that were so helpful too. My relationship with my daughter now has simply never been better. We have grown so much in our love and respect for each other. What a great investment in the future too!”

    “As a result of being coached by JoAnn, the contentious relationship between my daughter and me ended. I learned that it was me who had to take the high road and make changes. JoAnn’s challenges and encouragement motivated me. She believed in me. Now, I’m proud of the changes I’ve made, and  I look forward to spending time with her. JoAnn held me accountable, encouraged, and motivated me. She believed in me. Now, I’m proud of the changes I’ve made, and my time with my daughter is enjoyable.”

    Pattie L.

    “JoAnn taught me how to design and build stronger relationships with my children based on respect, trust, and love. She challenged me in ways that increased my enthusiasm, energy, and empathy. The insights and strategies I acquired spill over into my relationships with my students, friends, and family. Life couldn’t be better.”
