good mom, daughter, sibling, career woman, community volunteer and more.


  • You can’t shake a ‘there’s something missing’ feeling.
  • You’ve focused so long on other people’s priorities that you don’t know who you are without those roles or titles.
  • You wonder if there’s more to life that you’re missing, but is it too late to figure that out? And how?


  •  deeply connect to the woman you know it’s time for you to be? 
  •  get out of your ‘what’s missing malaise’?
  •  talk through stressors and fears in a safe, judgement-free space with seasoned master coaches?
  •  get coached on how to feel re-energized in your body, mind, and spirit?
  •  set self-honoring boundaries that align with the New You?
  •  connect to like-minded women who will stimulate new perspectives and possibilities?

The Coaching Council (TCC) is The Spot!

Curated by women for women who are ready to explore their More and What’s Next, then Live It!

In the TCC container we’re focused on the holistic View of You and because it’s led by two widely experienced master coaches, you’ll receive expert support and “meet-me-where-I-am” attention.

THE COACHING COUNCIL sessions are for YOU to…

  • Ask your burning ‘how can I move forward’ questions.
  • Ditch sub-living mindsets and own your worthiness to create what you’re craving.
  • Build and strengthen your confidence muscle to experience your new and different.
  • Move through fears and blockers. 
  • Claim Joy Daily!

To sum it all up: If you’re a woman who’s committed to living in purpose on purpose…We Got You!

“Wow! You have just been a gem to my life! I’m so different now! You taught me to [own] my goals and believe in them. It was the best match for us to be working together.”

I highly recommend this free group coaching opportunity with C René Washington and La Shell Wooten. They are skilled master coaches and uniquely talented at providing you with a motivation and mindset boost! I’ve been lucky enough to work with them twice – once for life coach training and once as part of their inaugural coaching council. Check them out.

– Whitney Sullivan

Being coached by C. René has truly been a life transforming experience! She has a gift for hearing what you say and then hearing what your SOUL is really saying. Each coaching encounter is inspirational, invigorating and life renewing. 

– Tonya Allen
Executive Director/Master Coach

I have been so blessed to have these two coaching goddesses, La Shell Wooten and C René Washington, in my life. They have inspired me, kicked me in the b*tt when I needed it and helped me get to the next place. You’d be crazy not to followup on this offering!

– Rachel Schaffer

highly recommend The Coaching Council. Master Coaches c.René Washington and La Shell Wooten have designed an excellent program. In every conversation and session, they met me where I was and provided the tools, mentorship, and custom challenges to help me see into the possibilities I’d dismissed. I can’t express enough the breathtaking freedom and the clarity that’s taking root in my mind under their guidance.

I’ve rediscovered my desire to travel and feel grounded and free enough to plan (and act on) a dream sabbatical to focus on myself and my business. This would not have happened without this program and the support of c.René and La Shell.
