Ann Brewster, Ph.D.

Transformational Resilience Coach


My coaching empowers individuals, including teens and adults, to overcome overwhelm, anxiety, and uncertainty during life transitions while pursuing their aspirations. Key principles include:

  1. Listening and Understanding: I prioritize actively listening to clients’ narratives, desires, and values.
  2. Goal-Focused Coaching: I assist clients in setting personal, ambitious goals aligned with their core values.
  3. Expertise: With a master’s in educational psychology from Cornell University and a Ph.D. in social work from UNC Chapel Hill, I leverage research-based expertise.
  4. Resilience Specialization: I specialize in fostering “transformational resilience,” particularly for those who have faced adversity.
  5. Ethical Commitment: I adhere to the NASW Code of Ethics.

My coaching philosophy blends research-based practices and coaching principles, focusing on navigating obstacles and realizing clients’ dreams.
