Adolescent Coaching

Your adolescent may need to learn the “how-to’s” for achieving goals, overcoming setbacks, and learning effective skills. We coach and inspire teens so their energy and effort lead to peace, respect, and confidence. Your transforming child can benefit from extra care and support by our coaching.

Parent Coaching

In this safe and collaborative one-on-one environment parents acquire the art of communication and connecting with their adolescent. Parents will learn how to lead, influence, and inspire their adolescents to thrive together with trust, respect and love. For now and for a life time.

Parent Workshops

A dynamic speaker, JoAnn Schauf, gives workshops that invite and inspire parents to engage in fresh skills and strategies to connect better with their adolescent. Our parent workshops have been hosted by parent groups, schools, churches and community centers.

Professional Development Workshops

We will train and teach your team members their value and the skills they need to bring out the best in them.  We will design and present experiential and applicable presentations with 100% audience participation. After attending, results will show in their commitment and performance.

What Is Coaching?

Coaching is a process designed to improve performance that focuses on habits and action. We build a trust based relationship with our valued clients. This allows us to  work together as blocks are re placed with fresh skills and better habits. Goals become reality and life is better.

We are excited to help you, working side by side as your life transforms from  surviving to thriving! 

We will hold you accountable and support you every step of the way. We will celebrate your wins and hold all that you tell us in confidence. 

Who Is Coaching For?

Do you worry and stress about parenting your transforming child? Do you argue over the same things ..screen time, bed, time and chores? Are you on the receiving end of too many one-word-answers and shoulder shrugs? Does your child need  help to learn specific skills for life and school? Is he or she frustrated by the challenges of being an adolescent?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you are ready.

Nothing makes us happier than watching our clients let go of unsuccessful habits and negative beliefs! Each one made a choice to invest in themselves and their future. No regrets and more joy.

Contact us and you’ll find  success and confidence feel and look great on you, too.

About JoAnn Schauf

JoAnn Schauf, Founder of Your Tween & You, began her professional counseling career in California. Later, as a counselor in schools and colleges in Texas, JoAnn supported students, families and educators providing guidance, presenting professional trainings, and creating innovative programs.

JoAnn responded to the needs of parents of adolescents by founding Your Tween & You in 2016. She received a Top Entrepreneur Award in Dallas in 2017. She’s a member of the Texas Counseling Association, contributes to local media, and stays in contact with her readers with a bi-monthly newsletter, The Tween Times.

A sought-after coach and speaker, JoAnn empowers and inspires parents with the system and secrets to thrive together during adolescence. She understands that it’s challenging to be in the body of an adolescent, and equally frustrating to be the parent of one. Those she’s touched call her the “Parent Whisperer” because what they learn and apply transforms their relationships with their children.

JoAnn and her husband Dave raised four children, each of whom had a bump or two in adolescence. The lessons learned strengthened them to become the successful adults they are today. 

What People Are Saying

“JoAnn shared with our parents what they should expect as their child enters middle school. The parenting and leadership strategies are invaluable”

Sean Perry, Principal, Homestead Elementary School

“JoAnn taught me how to design and build stronger relationships with my children based on respect, trust, and love. She challenged me in ways that increased my enthusiasm, energy, and empathy. The insights and strategies I acquired spill over into my relationships with my students, friends, and family. Life couldn’t be better.”


“JoAnn explains things in a way that parents can fully grasp, take home, and make their lives better with their tweens/teens. JoAnn makes teenagers not so scary!”.


“As a result of being coached by JoAnn, the contentious relationship between my daughter and me ended. I learned that it was me who had to take the high road and make changes. JoAnn’s challenges and encouragement motivated me. She believed in me. Now, I’m proud of the changes I’ve made, and  I look forward to spending time with her. JoAnn held me accountable, encouraged, and motivated me. She believed in me. Now, I’m proud of the changes I’ve made, and my time with my daughter is enjoyable.


“JoAnn Schauf is a dynamic speaker who uses experience and humor to equip parents for the tween years. She teaches strategic parenting so we and our Tweens can do more than survive middle school.


“The group interaction, entertaining clips, and JoAnn’s stories make the workshops fun! The best part was that when I applied the strategies at home, I felt confident and the power struggles ended!”
