Family Personality Assessments, Marriage & Family Coaching

"Mamaste"!

The mama in me sees the mama in you

What did you envision family would look like?  Especially with young children, it's easy to get lost in the chaos and feel overwhelmed.  But there is so much more - parenting isn't a negative life sentence full of clutter.  Your marriage can still thrive.  You can explore alternative education and find what works for your family.  And ultimately, understanding the beautiful personalities under your own roof allows for a place where everyone thrives.  The uniqueness in each of us strengthens all of us.  It's time to get intentional about creating that family you love to come home to!

Identify Your Strengths

As a mom who struggles with supporting my children on their own individual journeys while maintaining a thriving family life, I found Ashley’s coaching to be incredibly valuable. She coached me through my strengths and weaknesses and guided me to better understand what may trigger stress for me and ways I can reduce that so I can be the very best mom and wife for my family. I highly recommend her whether you feel you are struggling or not and I’ll be recommending her to my families at Acton Academy.

Revitalize Your Marriage

My husband and I took the personality snapshots from Ashley when we kept having issues communicating with each other. They helped us see why we sometimes misunderstood each other and how we react negatively or positively to certain situations that come up in everyday family settings. The personality snapshots were great in that we received clarification on the profiles from Ashley highlighting our key strengths and weaknesses in our specific personality style. I would love to get one for my oldest daughter now that I have seen how much it’s helped myself and my husband.

Coaching Sessions

Maybe you're dreaming of what you want your family to be, but you're feeling stuck and need some personalized interaction. Queue me, the coach! What is a coach, you might ask? A coach is like a counselor, yet the focus is not on processing through your past, but looking at where you want to be and how to get there. With marriage/family coaching, I work with families who are stuck in chaos/reaction mode (or simply want to grow as a family). I help you shift to living with intention, not waiting for "one day", and laying out clear action steps now to create the family you truly love coming home to.
