Janice A. Gnas
"Let us educate generations, to live from the heart."
I coach professional women to break through the glass ceiling, achieve immense professional success and earn an income that reflects their true value.
As a therapist for more than thirty years, I spent much of my career counseling professional women who struggled to succeed in the corporate world. Many of these women earned significantly less than their male counterparts, got passed over for promotions they were more than qualified for and were unable to break through the glass ceiling to ascend to the higher levels of management. As I helped these women to own their power and take control of their professional futures, I found myself so moved by the injustice of the corporate system that I was inspired to focus my practice exclusively on the challenges faced by professional women.
I have incorporated coaching as an alternate service line, and in 2013 founded A Personal Power Center Coaching to empower professional women to overcome the limitations that are holding them back, achieve the professional success they deserve and earn what they are worth.

"Working with Janice helped me to increase my understanding and awareness of life issues and how they have played out in my daily life. She helped me target my strengths and weaknesses using them to move forward by making the necessary changes to work toward my life goals, to include identifying these goals. Through this work with her my problem solving abilities were strengthened as was my self-esteem. I found her completely trustworthy and compassionate yet challenging enough to help me move toward my goals.”
“I was at a crossroads in my life as a lot of things were pulling me every which way. Jan Gnas helped me focus on taking the right path forward as well as boosting my somewhat low self-esteem. She introduced new techniques in dealing with certain issues and gave me the input that I needed to stay on the right track. Hopefully soon, I'll have a book or two written and published thanks to her idea. I'm grateful for the time I had with her. I know I'm a better person because of her.”
“Janice's coaching style allows the client to walk their path into their inner self of beliefs, values and feelings and then helping connect them to the outer world of their dreams and goals all while enjoying the journey along the way."
“Janice coached me through a difficult time with insights and wisdom borne from experience and deep listening. Her demeanor is warm and gracious; her work as professional and expert as any in the field. I was very fortunate to have her as my coach.”
“Over the last three years of knowing Janice professionally, I’ve come to appreciate her results oriented approach toward assisting clients achieve their personal and work potential. What sets Janice apart is her ability to quickly identify and leverage personal motivations and aspirations in developing clear objectives toward client directed goals.”
"Working with Janice over the past 2 years has been an invaluable experience. My recovery has been greatly enhanced through my sessions with Janice. She offers a level of compassion and professionalism that I haven't found anywhere else. I get that she really cares about the clients she serves. That has made all the difference for me."
