About JoAnn Schauf

JoAnn Schauf

JoAnn Schauf is the founder and CEO of Your Tween & You. Her professional counseling career began in California and for 20 years in the Dallas area she served CISD, LISD, and DCCCD. An inspiring speaker, coach, and program designer, she’s a member of Texas Counseling Association, contributes to local media, and her book for parents of tweens will be out soon.

JoAnn knows first hand the challenges and demands parents face. From arguments about technology, bed time, and chores, parents feel frustrated. Yet, she knows parents believe in their children are are passionately committed to raising remarkable tweens and teens.

At the same time, she understands how vexing and exasperating it is being an adolescent. Living in a transforming body with new abilities and intense emotions is as scary one day as it is exciting the next.

Her mission is to give you perspective, insight, and a boost to your most meaningful journey: raising your wonderful child. She empowers parents and educators to connect, understand, and harness their leadership to inspire tweens and teens to thrive.

It’s all about building positive connections.


A dynamic speaker, JoAnn’s gives workshops that invite and inspire parents to engage in fresh skills and strategies to connect better with their adolescent. Schools, churches and community centers host these.


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