As social beings we desire to be in a safe and intimate relationship. Often times we go through desperate measures, denying who we are in order to be accepted, ultimately betraying ourselves. At other times, we hide behind masks and barriers cutting off our ability to engage in deep connection and closeness.
I support you to release and move past fear and limitations that are getting in the way of their fulfillment. I believe this is possible by embracing authenticity and living life with purpose.
My training and skills focus on preparing you for a life-time of love by assisting you to increase self-awareness, shift to empowering attitudes and behaviors and to align choices with your goals. As the client, you are the 'expert' on self, and as the facilitator, I am the specialist on theories for mental, emotional, relational and spiritual change.
For couples, I offer a customized program tailored to your specific needs to grow in love, intimacy and understanding. For singles, I offer a relationship readiness program, which teaches relationship-ready skills. These skills and an open heart allow you to attract and connect with the love of your life.
For singles that are tired of attracting the same type of individuals into their lives or keep coming up empty handed, I also offer a self-paced home-study course. This program is a 6-module online virtual coaching program to help you break free.
My passion to help create intimate, life-long fulfilling marriages led me to earn a Masters of Arts degree in Counseling from Nyack College, NY where it combined psychological and spiritual theories to understanding humanity. Intimate relationships, although conflictive at times, are nature’s path to healing, personal growth and happiness. In many ways it’s a reflection of the love or union God intends to have with us--a union where it’s safe to know and be known, love that transcends the individual, calling forth inner strength, purpose and vitality.
Nothing excites me more then to support you to move towards a rewarding life grounded in peace, passion, and love.

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
Becoming a helping professional was a natural fit for me. I remember being asked for my opinions as far back as first grade. My desire to strengthen my marriage, as well as to stop the bleeding from the disconnection, prompted me to make a career change after 12 years in the corporate world. Putting what I learned into practice, my husband and I divorced after 15 years of marriage in a most loving, respectful manner minimizing the pain and trauma that can arise when a marriage comes apart.
Through my personal struggles, I have found my calling and purpose. Today, I work with singles and couples who want to create and experience lasting love.
We came to Jianny one year ago in complete crisis mode! My husband was not initially even willing to talk to anyone because it seemed pointless to him! … Well, after about a month into seeing Jianny, my husband agreed to join us on a session! … It is now one year later and I can honestly say [we] have [our] life back! This was no easy feat, but through the help of Jianny, the exercises we did as a couple and her ability to make us interact in a way we never knew, we found the spark that brought us together almost 10 years ago.
Jianny is a "shoot straight from the hip" [professional]…She told us what we needed to hear! It was not always easy to face the truth at times and take ownership of the issues, but through this understanding and through communication, we have become a husband and a wife again…What is important is the guidance, the support and the direction Jianny provided us with to move past issues and find "US" again!
I believe wholeheartedly that if it were not for Jianny, [we] would be in a much different place right now… It's not always easy to ask for help and admit you are not perfect! It's not easy to let your guard down to a total stranger! I smile everyday knowing I made that initial call…because that stranger became our friend and our confidante and we will always be indebted to her!
I am so grateful that Jianny’s been in my life. I’ve grown and learned so much. Jianny helped me to assess the areas of my life that worked and did not work for me. I couldn’t express my feelings, and in turn, had a temper issue which claimed my marriage. She’s worked with me to teach me how to recognize what I’m really feeling and express myself honestly.
I’ve sat in sessions with her, when I was just so angry, frustrated and lost. We identified what was causing my feelings, realized how I could deal with these issues and move on, without an angry explosion. As time has gone on, I’ve been able to realize when these [triggering] situations arise, and deal with them before they bother me for days on end.
Working with Jianny has truly been a blessing for me. As a single guy, I would recommend working with her to anyone I know. I’ve truly learned to love my neighbor as well as myself and am confident in my ability to love.
