We offer consultations to address any issues in your life: health, money, materials, educational or business goals, family concerns, relationships, creativity, inspiration, and your life journey. These consultations involve deep listening, to you, and everyone involved, including the place!
Places are relationships that we often take for granted. The energy of a place both reflects the people who live there, and creates the feelings of the people who live there. In Feng Shui, the special qualities and gifts of areas in places are recognized. We look at the areas in each place to see if they are feeding the needs of that area, and feeding you.
We listen, as we walk through the place, intuitively sensing what the energy is: where it is stuck, where it flows, if it's too fast, too slow, happy, sad, etc. The place begins speaking to us. Like someone at the doctor's office, it tells us the problems! And often it tells us what it would like for changes.
With focus on the energy and how it affects everyone involved, we help you create a place that meets your needs and aspirations.

These changes are often very easy, using what you already have on hand, but arranging things--like art, furnishings, and your attitude in a new, more lively and supportive way. You can bring in traditional ornaments or icons that are made according to ancient principals to help where you desire the help, or you can have new ones made to your liking, such as commissioned art or decor, lighting, or renovations.
We recommend that before you do renovations, and before you build a new place, you have a comprehensive consultation so that the changes support you. Rather than following trends, we help you find what makes your heart sing. We want you to live with relaxation and well being, and that is what our services help you create.
Our services can be for home, office, business, school, any environment that is significant in your life. The extent of the services can be the basic consultation, and great changes can be achieved with only this. Often, though, much more information comes to us after the first consultation, and so we recommend the follow up steps.
If you would like actual physical help clearing, organizing, planning landscape or interior design, finding furnishings, decor, plants, or fixtures, we offer this as part of the service. We can work with builders, architects, landscape designers, or interior designers. This helps assure that your time, money and hopes lead to real benefits to your life.
The kitchen and dining room are so important to the vitality of everyone. The floor plan here is crucial: is it easy to move from sink to stove to fridge? Is preparing healthy food inspired and relaxing? Is the energy coming from surfaces gentle and supportive? If not, what can we do to assure that it is? Are the places organized and pleasing to be in? Do you feel the colors, textures, and items are yummy? Do you feel generous and happy in these places? Do you feel nourished? What would you like these places to have that they don't? Kitchens can be showpieces, but to truly resonate as great, the body and beings in them must feel able to relax, replenish, and expand.
The entry way of a home influences your life joy. What is your entryway like? What is it like to arrive home? To come through the door? Do you feel expanded, happy, secure? If not, what is the problem? Do you invite people in with welcome? Do you leave the house feeling optimistic and like you have support behind you as you venture into the world? These are things we look at and listen to, to see what we can do to promote strength and well being through your entryway.
Modern life is such that we often have living rooms, and dens for gathering out families, friends, and selves. With the various options in design, decor, and layout, there are also many factors to assess. First of all, is the living room helping you live? Does it feel like a strong place to grow, to relax, to entertain, to engage with people, and to live? How about the den? What parts of the house are these rooms in? Using the bagua from Feng Shui, we assess what elements would most feed these areas, and what decor and design would serve them best, so that they can offer you their greatest gifts.
Again, the bathrooms and laundry rooms are modern realities that affect how the energy in a place flows. The toilets, sinks, tubs, and the washer all have potential to drain energy from the space. And yet, the laundry room is a great benefit to our modern lives. It can also be an asset in spaces if done well. So can bathrooms. We help you find many ways to keep the energy from being spent. If the placement is right, some of these rooms can offer great energy gifts to the space.
We love designing beautiful, harmonious, and useful bathing places. So if you are considering a remodel, please do a consultation first to make the most of it.
If you are lucky enough to have a yard or a garden, or any opportunity for plants--in window boxes or in the house, then this can be a great asset to the well being for everyone in the space. Having created the Sustainable Gardens Tour, a result of years of anguish and research as toxic chemicals had filled our neighborhood, we are very aware of the roots of beauty: true health and care for all. The first thing to be aware of is, is the garden welcoming to all? Are insects and critters as fed and comfortable here as humans? Next, are the plants flourishing? Can you spend time enjoying the sounds, scents, views and peace of the place? If not, we can help in everything from garden design, procuring plants, overseeing the plantings, and helping you cultivate the thriving space as time goes on.
Every person and place has them! This could be an area of storage that you have kept piling things into with out organizing, or clutter, or hoarding, or chemicals that you are using in cleaning or bathing or eating!
We all have our areas that we pretend aren't there.
When we bring these secrets out into the light, they can be transformed to being of benefit. So, we'll help you bravely tackle areas of rejection, and find acceptance for what life has been for you, and for yourself. You'll be so empowered in this. Sometimes it just takes a fresh orientation to see the gifts in the mess. And we will certainly help you do this. You will be amazed at the positive changes that result.

We discuss on the phone, via SKYPE or on location, what the situation is, what areas you need help in, and we evaluate the space for beneficial changes. A list of recommendations comes to me and I organize it and share it with you.
We can discuss by phone what your issues are and what you are hoping to achieve, as well as how I work
I evaluate your space, your concerns, and what improvements we can make to shift the energy. The first consultation is extensive and requires a minimum of two hours. Often at this time I make a list of recommended things to do, and you can begin. At $120 per hour, this first consultation is $240
Most often the first consultation is the beginning, and more information streams to me after I leave. It's like a problem that needs working out, and the information comes as I consider it later. Or you could consider it like a lawyer, who takes your case and then works on it. When I have remedies for you, I write them down, and send them to you, via email. We can have phone conversations about these recommendations at any time as well. Depending on the extent of the needed changes, the time for this can vary from one hour to six or more.
This is when you apply the changes I have recommended. You can do all of this yourself, or with help from family or friends, or you can hire me to implement the changes with you or for you.
This is where we go through things and decide what goes and what stays, and where it stays. This is liberating and makes room for the changes needed. We clear, organize, dust, clean, and have a good time feeling the new breath of life. You can do this yourself, or hire someone. When Janan does this with you or for you, the energy is addressed and shifted.
This can include shopping, obtaining materials and furnishings, decorations, and accessories, or it can simply be working with what you already have, moving it into new, more harmonious place for improved energy flow. Janan not only has many resources, she has amazing shopping karma.
Painting walls, furniture, designing renovations, including full renovations, and overseeing installation or construction are services that Janan offers. Janan can recommend it and you can carry it out, or she can help you bring this to fruition as well.
Additionally, you can commission Janan to make decor or art for your place specially. Examples are portraits, paintings, murals, hand painted furniture, ceramics, holiday decor , mosaics, gardens, and more.
If you wish to make decor yourself, and would like Janan's guidance and support, she can work with you to create your new, personal decor.
In the case of a new build, design changes, or renovation, Janan can be hired to stay on the project through completion and work with your architects, GC, interior designers, and construction teams.
After living with the improvements and changes for a while, we can check in and see if there are new areas to address.
We discuss what changes have come to you from the work we've done. It is great to share together how effective our work has been. If there are new areas of concern or additional goals, and begin attending to them. This can be a one hour consultation, considered as growing the garden of change in your life and living spaces.
Often people make the more significant changes when we begin working together--the overhaul of their spaces, or even small changes with very specific goals or focus, and then energy shifts, and improvements happen. At this time, more areas might feel like they would like to be addressed. This is more than fine tuning--it is involving the rest of the orchestra.
After new concerns are raised, I tend to get another stream of information about changes to be made. Again, I send these to you via email or text, and we can review them together on the phone. And again, if my services are requested in carrying out the changes, I make myself available to help you with that. Most times, however, the client is very inspired and has a great sense of what needs to be done, and can do this themselves. I remain available to consult as the changes progress.
then we all celebrate your new life!!!
