Chanté Dent is the Founder and CEO of Earnest Love, Inc., an organization dedicated to helping women heal from emotional trauma. Chanté has devoted herself to empowering survivors of all forms of emotional abuse as they heal from their painful past. She is a former Rape Crisis Counselor who received her Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology from California State University, East Bay. She currently volunteers as a member of the RAINN Speakers Bureau. Chanté also volunteers her time to support birth mothers during and after the adoption process.
As a young girl, Chanté was sexually abused by 2 of her cousins, and during adulthood, she experienced acquaintance rape, which resulted in pregnancy. It became her norm to sweep those traumatic events under the rug. During the beginning stages of her healing process from rape, she realized she had been wearing a mask, not dealing with the painful aftermath of sexual trauma. She quickly learned that if she were not free, indeed, she could not truly enjoy life. Her decision to heal, love, and live again is what compelled her to start Earnest Love, Inc. Chanté is also the author of, My Lemonade Recipe: Turning Life's Sour Experiences Into Something Sweet, a book that details her healing journey.
Since 2007, Chanté has devoted herself to helping victims sexual of trauma transition from survivors to overcomers, to thrivers in life. To this day, her passion remains – to help others experience emotional freedom. Chanté enjoys all things outdoors; nature is her peaceful place. One of Chanté’s favorite scriptures is 2 Corinthians 5:17, ”Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” She firmly believes that God can take your shattered pieces and create a beautiful masterpiece if you let Him.
