Let’s journey together.
As a board-certified life coach and non-licensed, trauma-informed therapist, I specialize in mental, emotional and relational health—particularly focusing on families in need of finding the emotional good bones of their family legacy in order to restore, repair, and rebuild (Isaiah 61:4). My faith frames my work, but I am respectful and supportive, even if we don’t share that framework.

How Coaching Intensives Work
The healing process involves significant work in attachment, memory reconsolidation (clearing negative narratives and feedback loops, in order to achieve neuroplasticity), childhood trauma, embodiment (somatic attachment), cognitive reframing, emotion reparation, making meaning and sense of one’s individual and family history, and establishing healthy behavior practices and communication skills.
I limit my clientele in order to specialize in intensive work. This untraditional coaching/counseling model affords more intentional, strategic, and efficient work. Expect 6-12 sessions, on the average. When you are ready, schedule your assessment: https://www.janellrardon.com/schedule/.
Your healing journey involves implementing these useful tools:
The Heartlift Method
The Hearlift Method, a synergistic model combining highly strategic principles and practices of counseling, life coaching, and spiritual direction. A three-fold cognitive and emotional healing process that involves reflecting, reframing, and re-authoring your History of Hurts into a Vision of Victory. This model is outlined in Overcoming Hurtful Words: Rewrite Your Story.
Aroma Freedom Technique & Young Living Therapeutic Oils
Enneagram Assessment and Personal Development
Contemplative Spiritual Practices and Mindfulness
Somatic Awareness: Your Body Keeps the Score
Somatic Awareness, postural and movement evaluation, communication and guidance through touch and words, and the patterning of new movement choices and practices that activate the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest).
Positive Psychology Tools
Positive Psychology, a branch of psychology focused on the character strengths and behaviors that allow individuals to build a life of meaning and purpose—to move beyond surviving to flourishing.
I hold a master’s in human services counseling (Marriage and Family Specialization), Board Certification in Advanced Christian Life Coaching (Marriage and Family Specialization), Practitioner Certification in Aroma Freedom Technique, MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) Training with Brown University, Certification in Dynamic Attachment Re-Patterning with Diane Poole Heller and study with Chestnut Paes Professional Development in the Enneagram. As an author, I consider it my job to be a continual learner, active listener, & researcher in order to stay abreast and attuned of modalities, treatments, and practical methods that both enhance and empower the well-being of my clients and their families.
“I really cannot say enough about Janell and how much she has helped our family. She has met with each of us individually and collectively as a family. She has given us the tools to tackle some very deep-rooted issues in our family lineage and helped us navigate a ‘new manual’ for our family. She continues to be a source of constant help and support to both me & my family. Countless times I’ve wanted to quit. Healing wounds of the past can seem impossible, but Janell kept calling back to me. She never gave up on me or my family. I highly recommend her to any family. She won’t like me adding this, but I’m doing it anyway. I always say to myself, ‘Everybody needs a Janell.'”
