Optimist Made is about serving the whole human, mind, body, and soul. We are bringing you the essence of this trifecta through the beautiful Dené Logan. Dene is an associate marriage and family therapist, yoga and mindfulness instructor and group facilitator. Over the years, she has taught various modalities of yoga and mindfulness classes throughout New York and Los Angeles. She then decided to further explore her fascination with the workings of the human psyche, which led her to complete a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute.
Dené is first, foremost , and above all things, a seeker. She has spent her life seeking connection, authenticity, and peace. Dené felt early in life that the more unattainable these elements appeared to be, the more vital it felt to attain them. Along this life's journey, Dené relized that she felt most alive in the process of deep conversations. If you know Dené, you know she is no fan of small talk. She feels her deepest sense of embodiment when she is flowing and breathing through a sweaty yoga practice. She feels herself standing in her truth and working towards self acceptance. We have been watching Dené for years now and she is what we like to call, the truth. She moves people in ways that they never knew they needed. Her presence is deeply missed, but exponentially appreciated when she is around. Dené can unwind complex situations that we call a beautiful mess into something that makes sense. There is no higher honor than knowing that Dené is contributing to our magical space... of Optimist Made.
Dené is a Los Angeles area therapist, writer, facilitator, and coach. She is the co-creator and host of the podcast, Cheaper Than Therapy. Her soul is pure gold and every ounce of her, we call family!
