My Story as a Counselor and Coach
JoAnn Schauf, MS, LLC, began her professional counseling career in California and for twenty years provided counseling services to public schools and colleges in Texas. When cell phones were put in the hands of adolescents, parents felt on the outside of their tween and teens lives more than ever. JoAnn responded to their angst and frustration by founding Your Tween & You in 2016. Her mission then and now is to empower parents so families will thrive.
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 parenting coach and inspiring speaker, JoAnn empowers and inspires parents to become the leaders their adolescents need. 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 raised four children, all of whom who are now successful adults with families of their own. Every holiday season her family and friends eagerly await a box of her famous fudge. It won’t be long before JoAnn’s book for parents of tweens will be available.
