Mind & Meaning Coach, ICF Professional Certified Coach & Accredited Enneagram Practitioner
Welcome, I’m Janette Valentino, a Mind & Meaning Coach who supports individuals who feel lost and unsure about their direction. I provide coaching services that help my clients gain clarity and find meaning in their lives as well as build the habits of the mind to support this.
As a child, I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. This left me feeling unfulfilled and discontent, even when things were going right.
I struggled to find clarity and direction until I began exploring my passion for travel, language, and culture. This led me to live abroad for a total of 18 years and earn my MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
During my teaching career, I realized that coaching was what I truly loved - supporting people in their personal and professional growth. I began my own coaching journey by hiring a coach and enrolling in a certification program, where I learned what was most important to me and I started making choices that honored those things.
Through my 40 years of personal development and the many client sessions I’ve had, I have learned that our habits of the mind can work for or against us. Knowing our patterns is essential in being able to support ourselves toward what we most want.
I also know that possibility is everywhere, but it can be hard to see when we’re in the midst of challenge or struggle. I love holding this space of possibility so that when you’re ready, you can see, feel and use it too.
I am a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), certified by the International Coach Federation (ICF). The ICF sets rigorous standards for excellence in professional coaching worldwide, and I have accrued more than 2500 coaching hours, giving me the necessary experience to support you wherever you are on the journey.
My clients have ranged from ages 20 - 70s and worked as managers, business-owners, CEOs, individual contributors, new leaders as well as a host of other descriptors within Fortune 500 companies and beyond.
With a clear understanding of my own mission/vision, meaning, and habits of the mind, I continue to grow and embrace new interests and learning that support me. My partner and I are currently exploring nomadic living, and we’re enjoying this new chapter.
