When you’re committed to a bigger mission, it can be easy to get bogged down in the day to day details of getting the work done. I partner with teams in moments of transition or stuckness who are ready to take their work to the next level, and know they won’t get there by following the same old path.

Whether it’s building a shared vision, reflecting on a completed project, tackling a big challenge, or planning for the year(s) ahead, sometimes you need to step back and get out of your own way. With my unique brand of creative, experiential facilitation and my direct knowledge of building and managing nonprofits, I will support you to engage your whole team in a collective process of discovery.

When we harness the creative power of everyone in the room, new worlds of possibility open up.

Dena is great to work with, adaptable and professional... She has a warm and engaging presence and easy rapport with participants. Her dynamic style allows her to entertain, energetically lead, as well as play a supportive role where the content of the discussion comes entirely from the participants. She is skilled at listening and facilitating analytically to tease out points and connect the conversation back to the key intentions. She is highly effective and a pleasure to work with.
