For fun Dr. Werner (the creator of Tell Me) hosts dinner parties where she tries out authentic connection games and practices on her obliging friends and family.
Dr. Werner works as a clinical psychologist in private practice (http://sf-act.com/) where she sees individual adults. In addition Dr. Werner teaches a mindfulness-based emotional intelligence course for the workplace called Search Inside Yourself (http://siyli.org/). She also leads retreats, workshops and trainings for therapy clients, executives and the public. In all of these pursuits, Kelly helps attendees reside in their inner home and actualize their potential. Her applied work is informed by her Ph.D. in clinical psychology at UC Berkeley and her postdoctoral research in behavioral neuroscience at Stanford.
Tell Me… was born out of a combination of all of the experiences above and a deep desire to make authentic, nourishing, enlivening conversation more accessible when people are gathered with those they want to connect with.
