I was a participant of several retreats facilitated by Lena during my time as a college student. These retreats were for student groups with varying purposes and makeups. Lena would initially meet with the leadership team of a group she was working with to understand specific needs of the students and desired goals for the retreat. She would then adapt, with great attention to detail, the retreat based on the input she received. The level of intention and planning Lena put in always made me feel confident in her process. Each time I was a participant, I experienced moments of personal growth and connection to my peers. At conclusion, I would leave knowing something new about myself and feeling more prepared to work through complex situations with my group. Lena’s retreats have lasting impacts; the shared experience and skills learned helped the groups I was part of tremendously in the long-term. Lena is uniquely capable of creating space for understanding one another and challenging us to become the best versions of ourselves. By facilitating a comfortable environment to get uncomfortable, her retreats provide the perfect opportunity for vulnerability and deep reflection. In my own experience, Lena’s retreats opened the door to many positive changes within my student groups. I am grateful to have been a participant on more than one occasion in college. I would absolutely recommend working with Lena, as you cannot find someone more compassionate, thoughtful, and professional.
