Client, Personal & Professional Development Coaching

My sessions with Annemarie have empowered me to grow in incredible and unexpected ways. In just a few short months, I have learned so much about myself, my values, and the way I interact with the world.

Coaching has become very important to me as I have come to realize that living the life I want to live takes practice, mindfulness, and every once in a while, getting shaken out of my own head. Annemarie is a great thought partner -- tough when necessary, and always compassionate.

I'll start off by saying that gaining the courage to take dance lessons has been one the best decisions I've ever made.

Before working with Ree you'd never see me on a dance floor. After taking a series of private lessons I can say with complete confidence that there's no social dancing situation I'm not ready for - whether that be a bar, club, wedding, or even my company's lobby.

Client, Dance Coaching

Dance lessons with Annemarie is like hanging out with a good friend--she makes you feel so comfortable that you actually forget that you are in a lesson: you just start moving your feet, bouncing your shoulders, and the next thing you know, you are dancing, and way less embarrassed than you thought you might be. I highly recommend The 8Count for anyone--couples, individuals, groups--looking to freshen up their dance moves and confidence on the dance floor.

I wanted to explore coaching as a way to help myself come up with a plan, or hopefully a solution, to address my dissatisfaction with my job. Annemarie's coaching has not only helped me find those work solutions, but she's helped me identify some other sources of frustration that I hadn't given proper attention to [...] Thanks to her coaching and her willingness to talk about any (and ALL) areas of life I am feeling healthier, calmer and more determined and capable of reaching my personal goals.
