Life Coach Joan Jakel

Coaching with Joan

My coaching programs are designed for women who are stuck, in transition, facing big challenges or simply want more out of life. Women who desire clarity, seasoned guidance, accountability and tools to transform their lives. Inside of the coaching experience, women create an empowered vision of their life, learn the skills to bring it to life and receive expert guidance to keep them on course to achieve it. By the end of the coaching program, they emerge confident, clear, decisive, and unstoppable!

Your Journey…

As I guide women on their individual Shero’s Journey, I start by creating a sacred setting for our time together. A place where women know they are safe so they can show up and be honest, vulnerable, and connect to their authentic selves. A place they will never be judged for being real and messy.
The coaching journey is one of exploration. We bravely explore those places we desire to run from, as these are the places to excavate our truth, our potential, and our greatest gifts.
In this supportive environment, the coaching process weaves the creative, analytical and practical into the actionable. Each session focuses on bringing your vision to form and may include meditation, guided visualization, exercises, NLP, EFT or countless other tools. Our conversations explore deep self-examination with encouraging and firm support. The highly experiential sessions lead to a deep and lasting impact while the wisdom transfer, with a dash of magic, shortens the learning curve.

Each coaching program dives deeper into the journey to allow you to grow as a person as you EMERGE with a deeper connection to yourself, EXPAND into your career and community and EVOLVE into your legacy.


Emerge is the beginning of your Shero’s Journey and the foundational program where you learn how to do the inner work. Emerge gives you the place to explore your life’s direction and vision and learn the tools  to set yourself up for success – however YOU define it.

Coaching Success Stories…

Through my work with Joan, I was able to completely transform some realms of my life that were bringing me down and preventing me from being the person I wanted to be. Now, I have a clear vision of the path to take to be in the place in life that I have always dreamed of being.

I was in a funk with a few key relationships in my life & felt adrift at work.  We worked on a nagging negative inner dialogue that held me back, drilled down on my core values & mission in life & created a “tool belt” of resources to navigate challenges. This clarity catapulted my life into action!  I can’t recommend Joan highly enough.

I contacted Joan to kick some generational bad habits while preserving tradition to become a leader for my family. I found that changing my thinking empowered me, personally & professionally, to discover my best self. I will be forever grateful that her program helped me learn the tools to become a better leader.
