My coaching brings clarity to challenges and sticking points you may be encountering in your life, work or both.
Maybe you feel stuck. Maybe you feel you’ve plateaued in your work. Maybe you sense that you are moving toward a new way of seeing but can’t quite turn the corner. My clients are artists and other creatives: citizens of the imagination and seekers in the unknown. In our sessions together, I meet you where you are: strengthening your capacity to engage with insights and changes both large and small.
As an artist, I understand the peculiar impasses that creatives face oftentimes alone: overwhelming doubt, lack of clarity around purpose, misunderstanding of need, and the inability to overcome expectations — to name just a few.
Over the years I’ve been drawn to work on these issues with other artists as a mentor, administrator, peer, and educator. I have worked in many different capacities as a leader and collaborator often finding myself in the role of helping others tap into their given abilities to see and explore change.
This winding path has led me to coaching, a field that mirrors my belief in people being creative, resourceful, and whole.

My purpose is to help others realize the exquisite force of their true Nature, just as the waves crashing on the North Shore of Lake Superior reveal power, beauty, and profound interconnection.
After a 20-year career in mission-driven organizations, I realized my inner life and external life were significantly out of alignment. This led to a period of challenging and transformative life reinvention. I was required to navigate profound uncertainty and discomfort while taking risks in service to my life purpose. I became passionate about transforming self-limiting patterns. I learned to return to myself.
These experiences and my training at MCS have given me a compassionate, direct, and insightful coaching approach. I believe all people have the innate capacity to be calm, clear, creative and courageous, even in the most challenging of circumstances. I help you access these traits through practical, in-the-moment mindfulness techniques. Meanwhile, I support you as you discern key choices and take steps to create a life you genuinely love, both personally and professionally.
Coaching style: My coaching style is filled with deep listening, powerful questions, a love of metaphor, and warm humor. I help you listen to your heart, tap your intuition, and connect with the somatic intelligence of your body. I am action-oriented: success is when you take forward steps that previously seemed unclear or out of reach.
Odd but true: I worked for Warren Buffett’s daughter for seven years, supporting the wellbeing and effectiveness of community and organizational leaders as a coach, facilitator, and program Director.
I am most grateful for my three teenager daughters, my ability to directly connect with open, clear, spacious awareness, and the opportunity to create a life I genuinely love.
I am the author of Mindfulness Activities for Adults: 50 Simple Exercises to Relax, Stay Present and Find Peace.

“It’s never too late to be who you might have been.”
Ann-Marie lives and breathes her quote. As a result, she leads a rich and colorful life pursuing her interests and passions in her coaching practice and as Founder and Director of the Mindfulness Coaching School in Santa Fe, New Mexico
In the mid-seventies Ann-Marie traveled nationally with Ken Keyes facilitating consciousness growth workshops called “The Science of Happiness” based on his book Handbook to Higher Consciousness. When not traveling, she lived as a resident trainer in Ken’s educational communities of Berkeley, California and St. Mary, Kentucky. It was at this time that Ann-Marie mindfully began her journey of contributing to the lives of others and to the planet.
Taking a sabbatical from “the real world” in the early 1980’s, Ann-Marie retreated alone to India. There she lived and studied various philosophies and religions – particularly Buddhism, a tradition she has been intimately involved with ever since.
As an international coach and teacher, psychotherapist and Buddhist Chaplain, she is known for her 12-Step Wisdom, Jungian flavor, and Buddhist perspectives. While coaching, Ann-Marie utilizes Positive Psychology and Contemplative NeuroScience applications, cognitive modalities such as EMDR (for peak performance), Nonviolent Communication (for needs assessment and communication), as well as art, humor, nature, and her client’s creative transformative juices.
Ann-Marie is the Founder and Director of Mindfulness Coaching School. She coaches, students, and clinicians worldwide through webinars and individual sessions.
