Hi! My name is Tobi Brenner. Thank you for visiting EmpowHer Counseling. If you are here, it’s because you are looking for something specific, which I believe I can offer.
I am a Denver based counselor (raised in Florida) who grew up in a family that instilled in me a sense of strength and independence I will forever be grateful for. My mother is a strong woman, and along with my father, encouraged me (strongly, I might add) to make sure I was able to take care of myself. Even with that level of support and encouragement, I’ve experienced my own struggles. Career challenges, the illness and death of my beloved father, lifelong weight challenges and choosing to focus on career vs. children and family, have presented me with a variety of battles throughout my life.
My undergraduate degree is in business and I spent the first 20 years of my career in corporate business, via management consulting, business operations, and Human Resources. Ultimately, I became known as the “relationship girl,” due to my ability to relate to people, understand their needs, and build open, trusting relationships. I have been fortunate enough to foster these skills into a rewarding and fulfilling career.
I entered the counseling field in order to share the power of therapy. My personal experience in therapy has been life altering and I aspire to pay it forward. I am passionate about helping others, particularly women who may be looking for something more, whether depression, anxiety, struggling with career challenges, traditional gender roles, difficult family dynamics, feeling connected to your partners, children or loved ones, or living a more meaningful life.
About EmpowHer Counseling
As our name suggests, EmpowHer Counseling does focus on healing and empowering women. We have a passion for inspiring women to be psychologically strong and healthy, while learning how to embrace their own femininity and be heard.
As much as we love empowering women, we believe empowerment knows no gender. Our mission is to empower people, regardless of gender. One definition of empowerment is to ‘make (someone) stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights.’ At EmpowHer Counseling, empowerment means owning your life and being true to who you are, regardless of race or ethnicity, religious or spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, or gender – male, female, cisgender, transgender, or on the gender spectrum. Empowering women does not mean disempowering others. We are not simply female advocates. We are human advocates.
Our mantra is Engage | Evolve | Empower. I encourage you to engage. You will find the evolution and empowerment will follow on its own.
