I am all about YOU and your emotional health & mental fitness.

I’m Janell. Clients call me “The Heart Whisperer.” I kind of like that. I’ll be your guide on a journey of discovery as you reconnect with your true self and rewrite a better story for you and your family. Together we will strengthen your emotional health and develop your mental fitness. I can’t promise easy, but I do promise empowering. Download your free 21-day Heartlift and get started.

I Write from Love & Experience.

I’ve been writing my story since childhood. I suppose my journals have been my safe place. The blank page my very private, very personal counseling room. Little did I know that one day my words would become more public, less private. I don’t mind, though, as I hope and pray that my story informs your story. We need each other because healing happens best within community. So, welcome.

I Speak with Passion & Purpose.

Whether it’s a crowd of 5,000, a congregation of 500, a community of 50, or a staff/team of 5, I would be honored to speak with your group. Together, we’ll create a powerful event that empowers, educates, and encourages each and every person to be stronger than ever: mind, body, + spirit. I’ve served as Keynote, Breakout, MC, or Workshop Faciliator. Download my Speaking Topics (PDF) to share with your planning committee or contact me and together we’ll create a strategic event for your group.

As a Board Certified Life Coach & Certified Practitioner in Aroma Freedom Technique, I specialize in family and faith systems, trauma recovery, and emotional health/mental fitness.  I’ve worked with churches, leaders, and organizations, worldwide, providing efficient and effective personal growth/leadership tools for developing the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. Emotional Intelligence is a leading factor in both personal and professional success.

Ruth Njoki, Director of Children’s Joy Village, Kenya

Your heart is big and we’ve seen all the love and passion and effort you’ve put into this retreat. It is really out of this world. We didn’t expect all of this. To laugh. To cry. It is just remarkable and we will never forget this experience. We hope it happens every year.

Janell offered me the space to ask hard questions, and helped me understand what was under those questions. We went on the journey together to more freedom, a stronger faith, and a deeper sense of clarity and healing.
