Holisitic Healing Chair – Karen Janusz
Karen Janusz is an out-of-the-box thinker and solutions-driven business owner who has a heart for individuals and families suffering from the trauma and stress of losing a loved one to suicide. Having experienced the loss of her niece’s husband to suicide, she has felt and seen the devastating effects on the immediate family, friends, and community. Leaving a wife, a thirteen-year-old son from another marriage, a five-year-old daughter and a two-year-old son, left my niece Melissa and her family in a tail-spin. From being blamed by the victim’s family members to feeling guilty to depressed, through numerous counseling sessions- with God’s help and grace and immediate family support, Melissa is positively moving forward in her life. Still grieving her loss, but with God’s help and grace… she and her family are healing.
Karen understands the emotional and cumulative impact suicide has on loved ones. Spiritually directed and highly intuitive, Karen connects with individuals at a very deep emotional and spiritual level and can lead them gently through growth and expansion after loss as a Certified Aroma Freedom Practitioner. She understands the intricate balance of mind-body-and spirit and is dedicated and passionate about helping people achieve physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being. Karen assists people on their journey through cognitive, mental, and emotional reprogramming using the Aroma Freedom Sessions to help them regain purpose, passion, and meaning in their lives.
