Anne has been a lifeline in our marriage. It seems my wife and I have a difficult time communicating and getting along. Anne steps in, not as a referee, but as an advocate for each individual with the goal of helping us see our marriage be successful. 

She is well informed of communication skills and has a talent for sifting through emotions so that sensitivities and curiosities about each other are aroused. My wife and I, still very much in process, are learning to be less combative and more trusting of one another that we both want things to work.
Anne is not afraid to put the hard questions out there with the expectation
that we will each take responsibility for the things we say and do.”

“We want to say that our time with Anne changed our marriage. She helped us face sensitive issues allowing us to forgive so we could love and be loved. We learned how to resolve conflict, by validating both of us. She also showed us how important being authentic is and how it solves many problems.
Anne (Fully Thriving) comes highly recommended by us.” ~James & Judy (private clients married 47 years)

“I loved learning the research… The exercises were really helpful! ”  Louise (Flourishing Skills Groups)

“Working with Anne has been wonderful! She sees situations with remarkable clarity and is able to think quickly and communicate her ideas easily. I feel like I can always trust that the different thoughts she brings to the table are fueled by principle and integrity, which are important to me.  She helped my teenage daughter to accurately weigh various options when it came to a challenging decision in her life. My daughter made the decision, and through helping her to learn how to process her experiences, her new direction has proven to be a wonderful experience! Above all, Anne has a very empathetic heart and is a great and active listener. I believe she is gifted and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to improve life skills or work through a situation where the answers are not always clear and easy to see.” Judy (private client)


“I have a history of abuse which has plagued my thought life since I was a child. 22 years of marriage has caused even more of my wounds to surface. This had created in me a reactive, self-hating, unbalanced woman.

I desired to find a safe place for healing and change. Anne has coached me now for over 8 months and both my mindset as well as my marriage is finding proper healing. Anne's style equips me and at the same time holds me accountable to coming safely out of old and destructive patterns of thinking and doing and putting in place simple and manageable actions that with consistent use I am experiencing freedom from the actions lived out and the reactions of my mind which used to have power over me.
I can honestly say that the communication tools and training processes given
to me through my sessions with Anne, her gift of insight into the person with whom she is with, and her level of expertise in her field have been more effective than all my years of therapy elsewhere. Anne is helping me reset my life patterns from being filtered from a place of pain to now living free, confident, and productive.
I am grateful and look forward to our weekly sessions. Both I and my husband thank you!”

“During a time of very difficult change and transition in my life, Anne came alongside of me and helped me walk through that change. I was needing much encouragement emotionally and practically. Anne offered that, as she helped me to navigate through the current place I was in, assess my possibilities, and restructure what my future might look like. Anne helped me to find perspective and gave very steady and practical insight. Anne is a deep listener, which made me feel safe and heard as well as an effective motivator, holding me accountable in my goals. My time with her has always proved to be extremely beneficial. I would highly recommend her services!”  Renee 

“I would like to personally recommend Anne Nelson as a Coach and Counselor. Anne has helped me work through some of the most painful and challenging seasons of my life. She has been an invaluable help as I've sorted things out. I believe she has a gift and even a calling on her life to help people traverse the road of life, struggles, and all.  Anne's calming effect helps to draw the answers out of me.”     Rae (private client)

 “I had much less anxiety while on stage, doing my routine & poses. I believe it certainly helped me win first place in my class…”  Tim (NeurOptimal)

“…more effective than all my 8 years of therapy somewhere else…” ~ 

“A 14-year-old boy was failing all of his courses in September and October of this year. After just six sessions of NeurOptimal®, he started getting straight A’s and continues to do well.” D.B. (NeurOptimal)

 “It was a life-changing experience!” Jean
