About Ann

Motherhood Clarity Mentor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Author

Working with courageous women who are willing to dive deep into discovering their truth is rewarding beyond words! This has been my passion for more than 25 years, and that passion continues to increase. 

I have a special ability to help you get rid of self-limiting beliefs and rigid patterns, expand your capacity to think outside the box, resolve your own internal challenges, and discover your true desire about whether you want to become a mother.

In 1991, Marriage and Family Therapist, Denise L. Carlini and I co-created the program, Motherhood-Is it for me?™. We wanted to help women who were experiencing ambivalence about motherhood as there was nowhere these women could go without feeling shame or being judged. We led support groups together for 10 years before I started working with women and men individually. We published our book Motherhood – Is It For Me? Your Step-by-Step Guide to Clarity in 2016 so every woman can have access to this one of a kind program.

After running small groups in my office, the natural evolution was to begin offering groups online. I created the Motherhood Clarity Course to reach women in any time zone who feel alone and stuck.

I received my graduate degree from San Francisco State University. I’m a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT). I maintain a successful private psychotherapy practice in the San Francisco Bay area.

I bring the utmost respect and compassion to my work.
My only agenda is my commitment to you being free from confusion and achieving the clarity you seek so you can experience peace, calm, healing and growth.

"Finding the Clarity Course for Motherhood was like a dream come true. The very specific support around uncovering the complex desires and fears around becoming a parent, was such a breath of fresh air, when both my desire and my concerns felt continually at odds with each other. The experiential work throughout the course not only brought me clarity and peace, it also brought me enriching and empowering insights about other areas of my life that helped me make clear choices about my next steps forward with family life. I'm so grateful that this course exists, and highly recommend it for any one who's ever considered becoming a parent"
