Possibility is everywhere.
Even when you can’t see it, I hold the space for you so that when you’re ready, you see it too. My name is Janette Valentino and I’m a certified, professional Life Coach.
Change isn’t something to fear. Why not use it to create the life you want?
There is nothing in you that needs to be fixed. All the hurts, wounds, challenges are just information. What will you choose to do with this information?
Everything is a choice. My job is to support you in making conscious choices so you create the life you want and relish the living of it.

Janette cultivates a space that allows me to explore uncharted aspects of myself. She skillfully blends humor, ease, compassion and playfulness allowing for a profound opportunity to integrate and formulate new ways of being. I have been able to re-orient my “operating system” to include more grace and ease in every aspect of my life. Coaching with Janette is so much more than action steps to meet goals, it is an opportunity to play a whole new, beautiful game of Life.
Janette’s support during a huge transition in my life has been invaluable! Thank you! Your presence is calming, intelligent, and supportive with a huge dose of enthusiasm!
Janette guided me through a challenging time of transition and work overload. When I came to her I had started a new business but was still tied to my other two businesses. She helped me sort out the reasons why I should continue with one business over the other and a way to run both businesses without feeling run over! I have used her techniques to keep me motivated and excited about my working life and also tools to avoid or halt stress and burn out.
What I took away from the coaching process was realizing various ways that I was holding myself back from thriving. Also, having a supportive, kind, insightful and non-judgmental coach, as I had with Janette, was a gift that created the safety to allow me to be vulnerable enough to realize how I’d been setting myself up to fail so often in the past. Realizing old outdated beliefs that I never challenged in the past. Coaching created the opportunity to be more present and more accountable to myself and my goals. Lots of little shifts and realizations created more self confidence and a better understanding of how to continue to move forward and accomplish my goals. These are understandings that will always stay with me. They have propelled me to a new level of accomplishment. In all, my coaching experience with Janette was positively life changing for me.
I have lived a life of transitions myself, moving from one place to the next, making connections, exploring and learning. What threw me for a loop was suddenly being in a very static situation. Suddenly finding myself 10 years in the same city and country and working for the same company, being married and a mom of two. My life is full, but am I happy? Am I currently functioning to my full capability? How do I reconnect with that spontaneous, freeflowing person I was for so long. I was lucky enough to have connected deeply with Janette and have greatly benefited from our coaching relationship. She has this marvelous ability to lead me through my thoughts in a very enlightening way. She truly is my traveling companion.
Going through the coaching process with Janette has made my values very clear, so that I am able to focus on the things that make me happiest. She has helped me learn a new set of tools to deal with my day-to-day problems, and has helped me re-shape my long-term goals. As a result of these things and some other changes I’ve made, I am on my way to a new career, and a more fulfilling daily life. The coaching process has been great.
I found the work with Janette extremely worthwhile. I very much appreciated how she set everything up and put a framework around the process. Reflecting each week in this structured way was really great and gave me a great deal. What I appreciated most was Janette’s ability to take a fuzzy thought or idea of mine and summarize it concisely and precisely. She also showed me or made it more clear for me what the benefits were with some of my patterns and behaviors. There were also a few times when I was being very hard on myself and she helped me see alternatives to this, which helped me move forward in the way I wanted.
Janette is sooo good at Life Coaching. I attended a fun workshop with Janette and found she brings such a calming influence to the chaos that sometime surrounds my life. Just a brief session with Janette brought about many changes in my life. She is easy to talk to and listens to it all; she then can wade through the unproductive stuff to find what really needs attention.
The coaching process with Janette was wonderful. We met all my goals and then some. Her coaching style is very warm and nurturing with commitment and focus to assist me through my stuck areas. She is punctual, present, great listener and has a wonderful sense of humor.
Janette is working with my wife as her life coach. The results are amazing. My wife is downsizing this year, and Janette has walked her through eliminating activities and things that no longer serve her. This has left my wife time and energy to enjoy our family, our home and our business. She is much calmer and much happier. Thank you Janette.
