Brought to you by Renee Kohn Healing!
Please tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi there, lovelies. I’m Renee and my passion is to help you experience emotional healing and freedom! I work with women and teens to uncover your limiting unconscious beliefs, release them, and replace them with empowering beliefs that reflect your Authentic Self and allow you to live an amazing, fulfilling life. I create a safe space for you to explore old wounds, judgements, and patterns that are holding you back from living the peaceful, joyful life you deserve!!!!! And I teach you tools to practice daily to help you experience the awesomeness THAT IS YOU!!!!
What inspired you to start Renee Kohn Healing?
I experienced a lot of darkness, abuse, and trauma in my childhood. On the outside, everything looked great. Inside, I was dying and filled with pain, suffering, and self-hatred. 20 years ago, I made the choice to start healing (and looking at my own inner demons) and my spiritual journey began. I made a promise to myself that if I ever got to a place where I could be a beacon of light and a vessel of hope and healing to others (like so many had done for me!), I would. I began volunteering at women’s workshops and healing conferences.
Then, I went back to school to get my Masters in Spiritual Psychology. Now, I facilitate healing groups and workshops, see clients individually, and speak at conferences about the value of healing from the inside out! My greatest hope is that you will EXPERIENCE the amazing-ness of who you are—no matter where you came from.
Out of the darkness and into the light….it IS possible. I know.
What is most challenging and also rewarding in your work at Renee Kohn Healing?
The most rewarding part of my work is when the light bulb goes off for someone and they piece together that what happened to them in the past does not define who they are now.
Or when they release an old limiting belief that no longer serves them and adopts a new belief that fills them with joy at their core.
I get the chills when the seeds of self love are planted and bloom and my client’s light shines more brightly for the world to see. I believe that raises the planet’s level of consciousness and makes our world a more loving, peaceful place.
How does your background help you in your entrepreneurial efforts?
I love speaking to people and sharing what I know and what I’ve experienced. Working in TV is an industry full of ups and downs, uncertainty, and can be unstable. It’s forced me to develop a strong sense of inner stability and inner confidence—because there is so much I cannot control.
I help my clients develop this, too, and it really seems to serve them. The healing journey is full of ups and downs, bumps and bruises, as well as authentic joy, fulfillment, and empowerment.
I have always been a mover and shaker. I believe that if you want something badly enough you will find a way to make it happen. My goal was to help people connect to and experience their wholeness, completeness, worth, value, and Divinity. The University of Santa Monica taught me how to do this for myself. It felt like my calling to share this with others who were hungry for it, like I was.
What changes in your life fueled you to embark on your journey in this business?
My contract was not renewed at San Diego 6 News and I was not sure what my next step was professtionally. I went out on a wing and a prayer by creating my own business because of this (after training at Rady Children’s Hospital in their chaplaincy program as a spiritual counselor). Turns out, a new boss came in and I was NOT let go from San Diego 6 News after all. So, now I work at the TV station and do my business, too. It is what I love and I am truly blessed.
What sets your business aside from other similar businesses?
I’m part therapist, part life coach….a really cool blend if you ask me!!!!! I see the love and light in people wherever they are in their life journey and create the space for them to heal at a deeper level. It’s a unique thing to be a spiritual counselor—you get praised and validated and are also held accountable for doing your own work to achieve your inner and outer goals.
What are your short and long-term goals for your business?
My goals are to be a vessel of hope, healing, and inspiration at the biggest level possible—as Spirit sees fit!
What brings you the most joy in your work?
Facilitating healing and speaking about it to others!!!!!!
What are you most proud of?
The determination, tenacity, and pureness I have in navigating my own healing journey and how this helps me serve my clients at a deep, authentic level.
What is one of your favorite things to do in San Diego?
Hike at Torrey Pines and spend time with my fiancé, Dale!
Lastly, what is your favorite quote and why?
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.” ~ Marianne Williamson
This is my favorite quote because it is sooooo freakin’ true!!!!!!
