About Janice Hagan-Higgins

Hi, I’m Janice Hagans-Higgins, mother of four adult children, widow, and used to be nurse. I'm now an Certified Holistic Coach, Aroma Therapist, Certified Counselor and Founder of HEALING with Janice, PLLC. I help men and women triumph over trauma by using my personalized 7-step method called HEALING. My unique method is a combination of life’s education and experience, such as coaching and Aromatherapy, which is like none other. In this technique I assist in the creation of an inward and outward positive space for self, while improving one’s attitude towards life, to build meaningful relationships, and to feel confident about self, while making life’s difficult decisions. I love giving the tools needed to reduce stress or pain, and increase spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. I promise to help increased self-awareness, decrease stress levels, along with maintaining or gaining healthy meaningful relationships, while embracing your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual self. "I believe in taking life moment by moment, with guidance to empowerment and enlightenment, while improving and living life to the fullest."
