About Renee

Who I am:

Teacher. Learner. Not always in that order. I have a master’s degree in couples and family therapy, as well as years of experience helping individuals, organizations, and non-profits to become more resilient. The process of building resilience is grounded in Narrative Therapy theories: understanding the stories we have been told about ourselves and our communities, deconstructing the stories that don’t serve our authenticity and resilience, and rewriting our narratives to showcase our genuine selves—both the personal and the collective. I work with larger groups through keynote speaking and training. I work with smaller groups through intensive workshops. I work with individuals through coaching.

Who I am not:

I am not the expert. I am not the expert of your life, your organizations, nor of your circles of community. I do not have it figured all out yet, mostly because there is no such thing as “figuring it all out.”  I, too, am on this journey to become more resilient, more authentic, more vulnerable to being fully seen. Resilience is a practice, not a product. I have discovered, however, that there are certain paths that we can take to make the journey richer, more successful…and certainly less lonely…when we voyage together.
