Annette Oaks Pierce spent 30 years as a Family Consultant, working with troubled children, at-risk families, and individuals under severe stress from loss of loved ones, divorce, illness, or other major life-changing events.Her background is in Education, and she began her consulting career working with emotionally troubled children, autistic children, and those listed as hyperactive, ADD or ADHD. She developed the RYES-6™ Program as a result of her work with these children to assist them in developing solid emotional structures.It soon became apparent that the principles of the RYES-6™ Program were as valuable to adults in trauma as it was to children. So she began doing Family Consulting for adults as well as children, using her revolutionary new program. She has presented seminars, done retreats, and taught classes in personal growth and understanding of self and others for individuals, businesses, and organizations throughout the northern United States. She is now retired and she and her husband presently live in Provo, Utah.
