“Jennifer Blankl is truly a one of a kind person.

She is dedicated to your development and improvement as a individual/parter/team. My wife and I had the pleasure of hiring Jennifer early last year as we approached our wedding day. I highly encourage you to speak with Jennifer if you desire to become the best husband/wife/team you can image. Jennifer has a unique approach that is tailored to your communication style, goals and experience in life.”

“Don’t miss the opportunity to work with Jennifer

so you can bring new life and a fresh perspective to your relationship. Jennifer provides a safe, non-judgmental container to look at stale patterns, and more importantly, gives tools and exercises to enliven and enhance enjoyment, fun, and intimacy. Her focus is on creating the best in your relationship, not rehashing the negative patterns. I highly recommend her!”

“Jennifer gifted me so much more than I ever expected.

A rogue wave that never flattens. Time standing still. Buckling to a fetal position in a hallway. I’ve been there. We all have. I came to Jennifer to see me through the gray canopy when a very meaningful long term relationship suddenly ended. Jennifer gifted me so much more than I ever expected. Her acceptance, guidance and tailored nudging has helped me evolve into an emotionally intelligent, communicative, vulnerable and more solid self. By far, the number one comment I get these days is how grounded I am. I will carry with me what I have learned from Jennifer for a lifetime.”

“Jennifer is the absolute BEST!

I’ve been working with Jennifer for over a year now & I just LOVE her! I love how non-judgmental she is, how encouraging she is, how she never seems to be “taking sides”, how she let’s me work my stuff out at my own pace while pushing me forward, how she engages with me throughout the week between our sessions, how I know that she really cares about me. I can’t say enough good things about Jennifer – both my husband & I really love working with her!”

“Jennifer Blankl’s WORKSHOPS present…

valuable, thought provoking, information to help you get out of your rut and into your heart! The tools and challenges she presents empower you to try positive strategies in your relationships that will allow you to show up, not just as your best you, but better. You will be armed with new intention that allows you to connect with others in a more heart-centered way. I’m impressed with the honesty and vulnerability that comes out in Jennifer’s workshops. She is fun, supportive, honest, and nonjudgmental. I feel so fortunate to be receiving this crucial, perhaps family saving, information right now and look forward to feeling more and more fulfillment in my relationships! Thank you Jennifer!”

“Jen is AMAZING!

She is a Godsend! She has taught me so much. She immediately helped me realize I’m not alone, and that there are a lot of women going through and feeling the same way as I am. I have seen a lot of counselors in my time, but she is by far one of the most knowledgeable professionals I know in marriage and relationships. I highly recommend her if your marriage or key relationships are struggling! Thank you so much Jen! ❤ “

Within 30 minutes I was able to realize my full potential and utilize tools I have to better my life for myself and for others around me. Thank you Jennifer, you’re awesome!”

“Working with Jennifer has really helped my relationship of 25 years with my husband get back on track.  We are both busy entrepreneurs, take parenting seriously and had fallen into some habits that were not good for our relationship. It wasn’t bad necessarily, just boring and lacking spark. My husband was so reluctant to “go to counseling” or work with someone that it took almost one year to convince him to try.  After our free consultation with Jennifer he was the one who pulled out the card and signed us up for two months and suggested we continue for an additional month. He sees how much better things have gotten and we are communicating so much better. We both see the value in checking in with Jennifer on a bi-annual or yearly basis to keep on track and not wait so long to find some new tools to help us. Thank you Jennifer for truly reigniting my marriage. Xoxoxo”

“Thank you for giving me these wonderful tools to become a better person – a more authentic me.  It has been a wonderful start to self-discovery.  You have shown me that I do have the strength to become better and embrace all the wonderfulness that is ME.  The saying “it’s on them” has really become a reality. I now truly understand how true that statement is and how to apply it.  I now know that I have the choice to let others affect me in either a positive or negative way, all thanks to you Jennifer!  You are a wonderful woman and I am SO happy to work with you. Thank you again.”

“Thank you to the moon and back!”

“Jennifer, thank you for all that you do! Thank you for bringing me back to the woman I know I am and have always been. Thank you so much for helping me learn better ways to communicate with everyone around me as well as the tools to get through those more difficult, uncomfortable conversations. I want you to know that I now have peace in my mind and heart and I am happy. I feel me again. I cannot say thank you enough. I am so glad I got to share my world with you.”

Jennifer P., Vancouver, WA

“Working with Jennifer has been tremendously helpful.  Having never worked with someone in this capacity before, I was unsure of what to expect.  It has really been a life-altering experience.  Jennifer’s sweet, non-judgmental, and open attitude have given me a better understanding of how to effectively communicate.  I appreciate her “deadlines” for tasks and helping me confront my fears in a non-stressful way.  I highly recommend utilizing Jennifer’s services!”

“ Thank you Jennifer! You are a Master Relationship Coach! I have learned some easy and effective ways to improve my communication. I am much better about having conversations that would have been difficult before. Even my daughter said I was communicating better. I have seen such positive results by just doing a few simple things. Life is better.”

– Conde Bartlett, Cocoon Wellness Center, Portland, OR

“Working with Jennifer for 3 months was extremely valuable for me and my wife.

The tools that she taught us were very informative, insightful, and extremely valuable for us and our marriage! What helped me the most was Jennifer’s gentle prodding to dig deeper. My wife and I connect more often now and we make more effort to communicate more openly with each other. Thanks to Jennifer for helping us get out of auto-pilot mode! Understanding our human needs better… and that the other person has needs too was a big breakthrough for us. Much of this I took for granted before working with Jennifer!”

“Working with Jennifer was transformative for my partner and I. She listened very attentively and non-judgementally as we discussed our hopes and concerns and suggested exercises for us. I found that these really helped me connect with (and better communicate) my core needs in my romantic relationship– and those with friends and colleagues! The highlight of working with Jennifer was learning strategies that I employ daily to bring peace and balance to my interactions with others.”

“Jennifer has been tremendous in helping my partner and I not only repair the small rifts that any relationship endures but she has taught us to talk more openly and love more fully. When we first met Jennifer I wasn’t sure that we needed any help with our relationship, but after meeting with her for a short time we took the leap and haven’t looked back since. This is the best investment we’ve ever made in our love and is worth more connection and happiness than a thousand weekend getaways could ever provide.”

“Jennifer provided an extremely insightful program that exposed me to subtle issues that have been following me (and my relationships!) for my entire life. I found that Jen offered non-judgmental observations along with key exercises that immediately contributed to positive changes in my personal and professional life. I now engage with the world a little bit differently and have a greater sense of connection and fulfillment in my platonic and romantic relationships!”

“After attending a workshop hosted by Jennifer Blankl, I executed one small intentional change at home that Jennifer taught us.  I made my husband my #1 priority.  By this I mean, when he was telling me a story and our son would interrupt, instead of talking with my son and getting back to my husband, I would make my son wait with a clear, “Daddy’s talking, please wait”.  While it didn’t always work and the change seemed inconsequential to me, after a few days my husband said “Why are you being so nice to me, it’s making me nervous”.  All at no ‘cost’ to me, I made my husband feel important with the bonus of my son hopefully learning some manners and patience.  100% change for the good! Thank you Jennifer for sharing such valuable information and strategies with all of us!”

“Jennifer Blankl is a phenomenal Life Coach. She listens with a rare understanding that reveals compassion, passion, and mirth. I never felt judged, labeled, or as if something was wrong with me, but rather uplifted and armed with practical tools to proceed through the next stage in my life with confidence, intention and direction. With her work, Jennifer has gifted me with stronger self-awareness in order to better determine and achieve my life goals. I can’t thank you enough, Jennifer, and I trust that others will benefit from your grace, timeliness and guidance in order to live their dreams.”

“It was through Jennifer’s guidance that I was able to change the story I was telling myself to reach a breakthrough in my personal life. Through her knowledge and, more importantly, her kind and open demeanor she encouraged me to do the work and was able to offer additional recommendations for readings and teachings for me to do in addition to the work we were doing together. I trust her and would definitely love to work with her again!”

“I was a skeptic about this whole “life coaching” thing. Here is how I decided to give it a try. I was going through a lot of drama in my professional life and I was at my whit’s end! It was after a brutally honest conversation with some coworkers that I had an epiphany – “I need to work on ME. I can’t control others’ reactions, but I can control MINE and how I respond.”

So, I knew I really didn’t need to see a psychologist, but I did need help to change how I respond. So I got in touch with a friend who suggested that I try a life coach.

What is a life coach? So I googled it…. Go figure!  After reading what a life coach is, I decided to give it a try. Said friend gave me Jennifer Blankl’s number, so I reasoned why not at least talk to her and see if this is what I’m looking for?

Jennifer offered a free session to really find out if I would be a good fit for this life coaching thing. I went into the first session very skeptical! I was wondering how this could help me.  To my surprise, after the first session, I learned a lot about myself. So I reasoned if I keep this up for a little while I may make some positive changes. As each session came and went I started to see that I had complete control over how I react, mind you I knew that in a general sense, what I mean is that I now have tools to see how my reactions can either fuel or extinguish a negative situation. By really focusing on what I can control, my responses and actions, I can create a “happy” environment within myself. Over the course of my sessions with Jennifer I felt this weight lift off my shoulders. I had a coworker say, “You seem happier!” I could see what she meant. I wasn’t so worried about what others were or were not doing and learned that I do not need to be responsible for their actions. So in turn I can let my happy go lucky side come out more!

What started out as a work reason to why I went, become a journey of self-discovery!

I’ve said “I’m a work in progress”  so every little step to knowing who I am is a step in the right direction. I still have some set backs but when I see and feel the tension creep in, I apply the tools that Jennifer gave me. Behold… it works!!!

Sometimes you just have to jump in and see what happens. A journey to self-discovery is a lot easier when you have help and you’re not alone. With the time I have spent with Jennifer, I understand my worth and what I want out of life. So give it a try, it is the only way to find out if it is for you.”

 “Thank you Jennifer!! I wanted to let you know how much I sincerely appreciate the time you spent with me the other day.  I was not sure what to expect, or in fact, what an old dog like me could learn from personal coaching.  I am thankful that I was wrong.  You far exceeded my expectations!  As I reflected on the insights you provided me, I realized that not only would communication skills help me in my most important relationship- with my husband, improving my communication skills would also enhance other areas in my life.  I was pleasantly surprised at how realistic yet transforming the suggestions you provided were.  Now I have to take your challenges and apply them, which I am eager to follow up with you and share the progress with you.  Thank you again for  sharing your sincere interest,  your professionalism and personal insight that I believe will improve my ability to improve my communication skills and will make positive differences in many areas of my life.  I am looking forward to our next session!”

“I met Jennifer at a small gathering of women at a ‘Love You More Project’ event where she was the guest speaker.  That night Jennifer talked to us about the 6 Basic Human Needs, taught to her through her certification with the Tony Robbins Life & Relationship Coaching program.  I was fascinated.  As I listened I began to see how pieces of my conversations with my husband, earlier that day, may have been perceived by him differently than I had intended, and I was astounded at how such differences were indeed affecting our relationship.

Jennifer helped me see that my husband needs certainty.  He needs to know things and plan things and expect things.  Meanwhile, I enjoy uncertainty/variety.  I like the adventure, the unknown, and am willing to explore things.  With me having this information I was able to approach my husband with this new language of the 6 Basic Needs and talk to him about what he needs, what I need, and how we can help each other feel respectfully acknowledged, seen, and heard.  As we talked we found ourselves laughing over stories of our life together and we were reminded of how we balance and complement each other very well.  We re-kindled our deep appreciation for each other.

Through the knowledge and language of the 6 Basic Needs I have learned how to re-frame what happens between my husband and I, so that we can gain clarity on what something is really about.  From that we have had more constructive and positively supportive conversations that have helped us feel like partners, not antagonists to each other’s wants, or needs.  And my friend, all this happened with just listening to her for 2 hours.  Imagine if she was your relationship coach?”

“Speaking openly and honestly about struggles in marriage can be difficult, especially amongst a group of young mothers that might not know one another very well…that is why when Jennifer Blankl came to our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group to facilitate a discussion about marriage and relationships, I was so blown away with how comfortable everyone in the group was with getting vulnerable with one another around this topic. Jennifer set the stage for our discussion beautifully with her own raw experiences and deep knowledge and understanding of the nature of human relationships. From there, the discussion flowed naturally and felt intimate, even though there were four full tables of women. I know that all of us walked away from that short session with tools we could immediately implement in our own marriages and even in other relationships with loved ones. We would have Jennifer back to our group in a heartbeat and would highly recommend other groups to consider her as a facilitator or speaker.”
