​​​​Wellness and Life Coaching 







Welcome! My name is Dr. Ann Recine, DNP, RN, AGPCNP-C. I strive to serve each person, couple, and family with an individualized, research-based approach. I have had deep joy in being able to help my clients to overcome areas of difficulty in their lives. Early in my coaching practice, a woman in her 80s said to me that she wished she had met me earlier in her life because for the first time in her life she was able to feel calm and communicate peacefully, and let go of negative emotions. She had been referred to me by a local physician because her emotions were affecting her physical health. She asked me to please continue this work because she wanted her children and grandchildren to learn these skills earlier in life than she did. It would be my joy to assist you with scientifically-based tested strategies to live a healthier, happier life. 


I have over 25 years of experience working with people with wellness coaching. I am an Adult/Gerontology Nurse Practitioner. My focus is helping young adults and adults all the way through the life-span to be as healthy and happy as possible. The overall focus for my practice is consulting on integrative therapies, which are therapies that join the best in traditional medicine with the new research in complementary-alternative medicine. 


My experience as a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire teaching pharmacology, diagnostics, and primary care interventions in the nurse practitioner doctoral program has convinced me that people need to understand how science-based, non-pharmacological interventions can optimize their health and address health problems. My experience teaching nutrition to undergrads and teaching interventions to athletic training students has convinced me of the need to educate people on movement and eating strategies for healthier, happier living.

My coaching and consulting focus is following: 

  • Strategies for coping with troubling events, emotions, and people
  • Scientifically-based Integrative Therapies Consulting
  • Psychoneuroimmunology (a fancy way of saying mind-body-spirit interventions)
  • Science of Happiness
  • Relationship communication education
  • Strengths assessment and using strengths to overcome challenges
  • Meditation-Based Stress Reduction 
  • Life and Wellness Coaching
  • Fifth Step work for Twelve-Step programs


I have a collaborating relationship with my husband Lou Recine in his coaching practice, in seeing couples or a client together if the client prefers that. To find out more about Lou, click on: Lou Recine Coaching
