A sports psychologist, Jack Llewellyn, authored a book with the perfect title, Get the Mud out of the Water. While not quite the same, Jeannine LaRue views life coaching as an opportunity to help clients see their past less judgmentally, their present more realistically, and their future much more optimistically! Jeannine’s own life has been peppered with tragedies, disappointments, and sudden deaths of her parents, siblings, and stepchildren. Yet, she has managed to accept these life-altering events…not as challenges…but as amazing opportunities that have propelled her personal and professional life to unimaginable new heights.
Jeannine has found that many individuals have difficulty making decisions about their lives, careers, or relationships due to several factors:
- Fear of rejection
- Fear of failure
- Inability to face up to reality
- Bad habits
- Unwilling to bend
Jeannine works with her clients one-on-one, often in a mentor relationship, introducing them to techniques that have assisted her through major decision over the past four decades. Jeannine’s greatest strength is getting her clients to face up to things they can control and managing those occasions when uncontrollable situations arise.

Jeannine LaRue has a combination of attributes I have seen in no one else in all my decades in the media, government and politics. She has the sharpest strategic mind, extraordinary wisdom, the sturdiest shoulder and an infectious inspirational determination. Together, these traits of Jeannine’s make a dramatic difference for you and your organization from the day you meet her. I can tell you for certain, we would not have passed marriage equality in the New Jersey legislature without Jeannine. Nor would Garden State Equality have led the way for 216 new laws in the last 10 years. Jeannine’s counsel has meant that much to me. I would walk on coals for Jeannine LaRue, and I guarantee you will, too.
