Hi, I'm Ashley!

Parent Coach

I am a parent coach specialist with nearly 11 years experience in the mental health industry. I have a license to practice marriage and family therapy in the state of California. My greatest passion is working with teenagers and parents close the gap in their relationship. 

I know first hand how difficult the teenage years were and all you wanted as a teen was to be loved and connected with your parents. 

I founded Illuminate Your Connection, a parent coaching service to serve parents of teenagers and individuals who are struggling with illuminating the connection that is already before them. I help parents who desperately want a connection with their teens and just need the right strategies and tools to feel confident. 

I'm here to show you how!


My relationship with my teenage child was shattered. Two years of almost complete silence. I have tried so many things. It was getting to the point I was considering sending him to a facility.

I followed this course almost to the letter as it seems like the last chance.


Ashley Hudson gave me the tools to do the hard work. She has such amazing insight into the teenage child. She helped me create connection by opening myself up to better communication to better behaviors. Over the course. My son went from not talking to me, to saying I love you almost everyday. The change is unbelievable. I would not believe it if I hadn’t seen it my self. I don’t cry everyday anymore. I wake up with hope.

The work is hard, reaching toward patience, and empathy. There is no quick fix. But absolutely she gave me the tools to examine better responses to my child to work toward finding how to meet him where he is.


I have done everything: books, psychologists, psychiatrists, and classes. The structure of the course sets you up for success. It’s bit sized videos makes change feel not overwhelming. The in person sessions, Ashley makes you feel supported and helps you see how to apply better techniques in your own life. The extra communications also made me feel so supported toward the goal of repair.


I am a medical doctor, I can fix so many things. But I could not do this by myself.


I thank God for Ashley Hudson.
