Joleen’s Life Coaching style is relaxed and comfortable. I was able to explore with Joleen ways to bring small, yet, powerful changes in my thoughts and routine ideas; to help in rebuilding and renewing my personal energy, and opening my mind and spirit for personal growth


You’ve helped me come a long way, Joleen. Still have some moments and issues to deal with, but compared to where I was a year ago, heck a few months ago, I really have felt the difference. My wish is for my husband to find his happy place as well and I have every confidence that you will lead him in the right direction. Thanks again, Joleen!

After leaving your office I felt such a weight lifted off my shoulders and I am excited to tackle my new life. You really helped me put things into perspective and I can't wait to begin implementing what we have discussed. I will definitely come back to you when I am stuck!


Skype counseling (with Joleen) the BEST! I have literally had breakthroughs in my pajamas!

I went to Joleen to deal with my growing up & my current relationship. With Joleen's faith in God & straight out telling me the way it was/is.... I leave her office feeling a weight off of my shoulders!!! I can breath, smile, & be reminded of the good things in my life & my process of dealing with the negatives, and be possitive for the blessings of my day to day life!!!
