Robin’s Nest

Shining a light on the wisdom within… the mind changes; the body follows.

Robin Harakal Janis is a Certified Life Coach, Weight Loss mentor and founder of Abundant Life Coaching. Robin’s mission and passion is empowering women to see, reclaim their power and create the life they were meant to live.

Robin is a 2005 graduate of Coach Training Alliance and uses her personal journey and knowledge gained over 32 years in the study of mind, body and spiritual wellness to help women take a breath and break free from the stories that are holding them back from the life they are designed to live.

Robin lives outside of Pittsburgh, facilitates a Women’s Empowerment group and gives Wellness talks in the community.


Simply put, coaching is “Conscious Conversation” that focuses on you. It is a forward-moving process that assists and supports you in creating the life you desire. When you need someone to talk to, it’s good to know you have someone who will listen to your heart and accept you without judgment.  A coach is a trustworthy mentor who believes in you and will work beside you with unwavering support and encouragement while still holding you accountable to the changes you wish to make.

A Coaching relationship focuses on where you are now and where you want to go. This clarifies what is working in your life, what is not, and what you are READY to change.


Coaching is a confidential, convenient process that can be done in person or by phone or email, depending on YOUR needs. We meet on a regular basis, giving you access to support and insight every step of the way as you change the old patterns that no longer serve you into new patterns of discovery and growth.

The choices you make every day are your life, and your life is not a someday thing. It is right now, today, every day. Isn’t it time to make a choice and take a step? To find out if coaching is for you, give me a call or send an email. We will set up a complimentary 30-minute coaching session to better understand how I can assist you on your journey.

Coaching can be done in person, by phone or email.
