About Us

MacDaniel & Tammy Reynolds
FOUNDERS

The year was 2013, and Reynolds Defense Firm was rapidly expanding and going through the dreaded ‘cash crunch’, a normal but utterly terrifying part of the business growth cycle. As MacDaniel and Tammy Reynolds tell it, “as business owners, nothing gets your attention quite like a rapidly approaching minus sign in your bank account.” With an ever-increasing clarity that they had to do something differently, a phrase from their business coach rang loudly in their ears, “if your business needs more money, provide more value to your clients.”

They took that phrase to heart, and the result of their work, Get Clear, became the first of its kind in the nation, a program specifically designed to help those arrested for DUI thrive through the legal process by redirecting their stress and fear into finding life purpose and increased enjoyment through a scientifically validated, coach-assisted personal development program.

The fantastic results of Get Clear spoke for itself and while helping hundreds of DUI clients, the Reynolds were approached by a divorce attorney hoping to help his divorce clients in a similar way, and Be Me was born. What we found was that people don’t just have a legal problem, they need to have a human solution. Attorneys work really hard to provide the best legal solutions for their clients, but often don’t know how to help on the human side.

In creating Be Me, the Reynolds found a surprising truth – while people enter into their window of clarity from different places, for example through a DUI arrest or a divorce, or the challenges of a global pandemic the work needed to find their next level was remarkably similar.

"With each setback comes opportunity. You have the ability to change the course of your future, without being defined by your past."

Hello, my name is Adrienne and I am one of the Window of Clarity Coaches. I am an Oregon Licensed Professional Counselor, a Washington Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I have over 6 years experience in the field and I am passionate about what I do! I see difficult life events as something to approach with understanding and empathy. I encourage clients to examine how their current circumstances are influencing their decision making and outcomes. I listen and offer clients a new perspective to support them to make the changes they want in life. Window of Clarity is all about helping clients take a negative experience and turn it into a positive one, an opportunity rather than a setback. I am here to encourage clients to move forward, to grow from this experience without getting caught up in self-criticism or shame. I believe everyone, no matter how hard their current circumstances, should be treated with compassion and respect.
