Services for Professionals
“I am always blessed by your teaching and the experiences you’ve gained over the years of counseling. What I enjoy most about you is your passion for others, especially homosexual women and their significant others, be it spouse, lover, or parent. You are a woman of integrity.”

Book for Counselors on Female Homosexuality
After six years of arduous labor, Janelle’s book, The Heart of Female Same-Sex Attraction: A Comprehensive Counseling Resource, was published by InterVarsity Press. It hails as the leading resource for understanding and journeying alongside women who want to diminish their same-sex attraction or open possibilities to opposite-sex relating. The book is also useful in helping counselors work with self-identified lesbian women simply seeking personal or relational wholeness apart from changing their sexual preference.
