I’ve been leading workshops since I was 16 years old. Yep, it was called "I like the S.P.R.I.T.E in You." It was interactive and empowering and also a bit goofy. Since then I’ve led hundreds of transformational events, workshops, women’s circles and retreats all over the world. For well-over a decade, it’s been an honor to intimately coach women privately and in groups. I’m known for my intuitive insight, my heartfelt storytelling and a touch of badassery. I create brave spaces and community connections.
I mentor coaches, healers, seekers and leaders.
Here are three things I feel very passionate about:
Helping you see and own your superpowers, essence and impact. I want you to embrace radical self acceptance and untangle yourself from the spell of not good enough.
Healing the sister wound so you can trust yourself and other women again. I believe our sister wounds of betrayal, abandonment, hurt and rejection have kept us from the transformation and healing that we can bring to the world. I have shown hundreds of women the miracle of true sisterhood. I can show you too.
Fall. As in Autumn. The season of harvest, pumpkins, cooler weather, and Halloween. It’s my jam.
Before starting my own business as a coach, I began as an elementary school teacher. I also worked with kids with special needs and adapted curriculum for IEPs. I’ve been a leadership instructor, a sex educator, an award winning direct seller, and an event planner.
For 8 years, I’ve also been the Director of Training for author and speaker Mike Dooley. (Notes from the Universe, The Secret). I’ve connected with Infinite Possibilities Trainers all over the globe. It’s the best gig ever!
For 5 years, I led the Red Hot Visionista Sacred Circle which remains my sentimental favorite program. I also led a 5 day retreat in Mexico for 8 years known as the Soul Hydration Vacation and the Bye Bye Good Girl Getaway. Currently, I’m focused on building a brave supportive space for self-leadership, soul work and sisterhood through my Soul Sister Alchemy Circle.
Hi. I'm Regena.
I'm also a recovering good girl perfectionist achiever.
Yea, just claiming that makes me tired. I spent a lot of my life worried about getting it right and scared I was getting it wrong. I've felt sick to my stomach at the thought of disappointing someone. I avoided conflict to the detriment of my own boundaries and self-care.
When I was 5, I talked to fairies, wished on stars, and sprinkled everything with pixie dust. I saw the world through possibilities and solved problems with my imagination.
Eventually, life happened. I got disillusioned and hurt and lost my magical child. I began to believe that being quiet, compliant, and good would bring about my happily ever after. From high grades to awards to the white picket fence, I had orchestrated my entire life to make sure that everyone thought I had it all and even more importantly, that I had it all together.
And then one morning, I woke up and felt… empty. I was successful, yet I had lost my sense of purpose (not to mention my sex drive).
I was a laminated glossy shell living in my own prison of perfection.
I was sure it was because something was wrong with me. I felt guilty and ashamed of feeling unfulfilled and unhappy. The critical voice inside me said, “How dare I complain? I have a Vitamix for f*ck’s sake!”
Why couldn’t I just be grateful?
I felt disconnected from others, afraid of speaking up or standing out. I no longer felt sure of what I wanted or if it was possible. I had lost connection to my magic. My soul was dehydrated.
I felt overwhelmed, overscheduled, and not good enough.
With the support of mentors and teachers and a willingness to change, I began my own journey back to reclaiming my essence.
Eventually, I had to learn that being in communion with my essence was more important than avoiding conflict or disappointing someone.
I learned that the only way to really be the leader of my own life was to strengthen my self-compassion and my integrity while reclaiming my worth, courage, and power.
Instead of being so critical, I’ve learned to be conscious and curious, to feel and heal my pain so I could feel more of my joy.
Today I continue this journey of navigating life to deeper levels of self-love, self-expression, radiance, abundance, and connection. The more ritual and presence and awareness I’ve brought to my life the fuller and richer than it has become.
I joyfully share my wisdom and learnings of essence leadership by mentoring women in my online courses, group programs, private coaching, and transformational retreats.
Personally, I have been married well over 2 decades to my beloved Matt, and I’m the mom to my teenaged artist Ethan.
I am a foodie. I do dance parties in my kitchen. I get teary-eyed at almost every musical or dance performance I watch. I love Halloween, pilates, and great blue herons.
I believe that it’s time for us to heal our sisterhood wounds because when conscious women come together with an intent to empower, the world changes and healing happens.
Compassion rocks, kindness matters, you are more powerful than you know.
I want to hear your story.
I'll help you find clarity and connection as we chat about what you want and what's next. Whether you are going through a transition, ready to optimize or need some entrepreneurial mentoring, let's explore together.
Regena is like the general contractor
of your dreams.
She won’t do it for you, but she can line up all the tools, tricks, resources and vibes so that you are able to start constructing the life you deserve. She pushes you to explore the parts of your life you would rather leave undiscovered and is your biggest cheerleader when that kind of exploration blows up all the boundaries and walls you’ve put up around what you thought was possible. I admire her passion for her work, her vulnerability in chasing her own dreams and am honored to have her in my life.

Regena Garrepy has been an absolute light in my life. She is a magical unicorn and has a gift for helping women realize their own potential as well as what lights them up. Her programs have been essential in shaping the crazy paths in my life and helping me to be brave and let my soul shine. She has helped me to see myself as the leader of my own life and it's is so much richer.
This work has empowered me to be a strong, confident woman. I left my job of 16 years only to be empowered to return to the same company 6 months later, with a higher-level position and salary. In addition to the position / income, I have the respect from upper management. I am 100% confident I would not be the woman I am today without working with Regena.

Coming away from the retreat, I felt felt like I had permission to shine in a way I never allowed before. I also felt a deep sense of sisterhood and connection that was nourishing to my soul. Regena is really special. She brings such power, change, and transformation with such a soft and welcoming spirit. She is truly a healer and a game changer.
