What people are saying:

I have never in my life met anyone with such a deep capacity to honor whatever people are experiencing. She has a unique appreciation and acceptance of everything that is human, and such complete faith and confidence in human nature. Helene taught me to honor whatever I felt. From her I learned how to have empathy for myself, and confidence in myself and all the good stuff waiting inside me.

— J.H. 37 Florida

Working with Helene and the inner voice has been a life-altering experience.  She taught me to tune in to my body and get my soul to speak and tell me the things I need to know. I’ve been in therapy, off and on, for many years. I won’t say other therapists didn’t help, but I outgrew their approaches very quickly. Helene was the exception. Once she established who I was and what direction my soul needed to take, she went to work guiding it there.  I have seen tremendous progress in the most important areas of my life– work, stress, relationships, and spirituality.

Helene has a rare ability. She has the science and the art together. All of my life, my emotions and sensitivities were so powerful, I almost couldn’t stand other people, and I couldn’t stand myself. Helene showed me how to trust my feelings and listen to them with compassion. Now they are my friends and helpers. Recently I received another promotion, and I was told it was because of “my extraordinary ability to handle people. Thanks, Helene!

I had always been a very intellectual person. Dr. Brenner’s brilliance was in getting me to trust my simple knowledge of what was going on inside me and all around me, especially with my husband. I am a more grounded person now, and much happier, too.

Before I felt like I was going with the wind. I felt at the whim of others. Now I know that I’m in control. Helene has given me incredible tools to handle my emotions.  I wish I’d found her 20 years sooner.
