Founder & Facilitator

Rachel Whitworth

Rachel Whitworth considers herself a “connection catalyst”. That is, she has devoted her life to bringing people together and teaching them how to co-create more meaningful connection.

Rachel founded Let's Be Authentic, where she regularly leads connection-focused workshops and classes that have the purpose of making new friends in a more authentic way as well as to explore deeper platonic connection.

She received her Authentic Leadership training from The Connection Movement (NYC). She is also certified by The Connection Institute (Boston) in the Relational Inquiry Approach and a Certified Mediator by the Living Peace Institute (Philadelphia).

With a love of psychology and meditation along with a background in improv comedy, she brings a powerful mix of creativity, laughter and presence to her events.

"Rachel's energy is so welcoming, caring, authentic and enrolling."

-Dr. Kymn Harvin

"Rachel is an amazingly empathetic, present, and skillful facilitator"

-Nancy Li
