Meet Renée


Founder of U R Pure Potential in Scottsdale, AZ

Originally educated as a Marriage and Family Therapist in 1980 in Detroit, Michigan, I cultivated a deep understanding that we all do not see the world in the same way, not only with gender, cultural, and age differences, but because of our accumulated life experiences.

After graduating, I was placed in a practicum in an inner-city treatment center to work with women who were alone, addicted, and raising children with very few parenting skills. From there, I went on to work in several hospital settings with a private practice on the side.

In my private practice, I dealt with professionals, both men and women, who were dealing with job dissatisfaction and deep desires to make more of their lives, and who were feeling disempowered.

I began to speak, train, and design programs early in my career and I was told repeatedly that I was warm, professional, skilled, and had much to offer as a trainer and presenter.

Always drawn to wellness and how that might help sustain change, I obtained additional certifications and licenses to incorporate complimentary aspects of care into my practice. I opened a wellness center where I worked together with other professionals to assist those impacted by addictions, those wanting to improve their personal and professional relationships and those seeking alternative solutions to their healthcare needs.
