ABOUT | MegAnne

While studying psychology at VCU MegAnne fell in love with figuring out how the mind worked. Focusing on positive connection and healthy attachment really drew her in, igniting her passion for working with all different kinds of people!

 Over the years, she have worked with well over 500 different children in a variety of life stages and situations. I has thrives when building sustaining relationships with the families she works with, and loves seeing all the successes over the years! This is what has inspired her to become a certified life and parent coach and start Be Kind Coaching.

Throughout the years she have always worked on building unique families’ goals. These goals include where they’d like to see themselves in the future, then building a strategy that will get them there. This can look like reducing yelling inside the home around certain instances, potty training your children, or developing morning/evening routines. I love working 1:1 with parents, children, teens to get them to the place in life that they wish to be, but may be having a hard time achieving on their own. Coaching is about building a relationship of trust together and working together to build a more positive relationship between your family.
