Eliza Reynolds is a 25-year-old workshop leader, speaker, blogger, and “professional big sister” who leads mothering and daughtering workshops throughout the United States with her mother, Sil Reynolds.
Together they are coauthors of the book Mothering & Daughtering: Keeping Your Bond Strong Through the Teen Years, which was inspired by their popular workshops that help teenage daughters see their mother as a great ally while mothers learn to create safety for their daughter’s experience of becoming who she was born to be.
Eliza is a graduate of Brown University, where she studied gender, psychology, political science, religion, and dance. A certified teen mediator and SOS-trained counselor by Planned Parenthood, she previously taught with the Wayfinder Experience.
Eliza has created a Daughtering mentoring program through which she trains teenage girls as workshops assistants and group leaders. She is currently at work on her second book, examining the cause and cure for the teen girl body-image epidemic.
