Welcome to Braveheart Advising
Rabbi Sue Reinhold, executive coach and spiritual advisor, brings Jewish wisdom into some of our most challenging places. Staying grounded with big responsibilities. Staying true to your deepest purpose. Wrestling with the things that hold you back. Making choices in life that are guided by spiritual as well as emotional and practical intelligence. Rabbi Sue grounds her executive coaching and spiritual advising in the wisdom of Judaism and especially the Torah, the first five books of the Bible.
It isn't required to be Jewish nor a God-believer to benefit from the combined sagacity and familiarity of these core texts. Much like great drama or poetry, they allow for parabolic shifts in meaning when applied to the circumstances of our lives. Together, Rabbi Sue and you will tackle meaningful questions related to your personal and professional goals, your purpose, and your spiritual health. Who am I? What is my highest and best purpose in the world? How do I best navigate my current professional challenges? If I get to a better place, who will I be when I am there? What will it feel like? What is the story I tell myself and the world about my journey?
The Hebrew term for courage, ometz lev, literally translates to 'brave heart.' That's what Rabbi Sue helps you with as a coach and advisor to help take you out of your Egypts and to a better place.
There are a number of ways to access Rabbi Sue's services:
A famous story in the Bible tells us that one night, in a stormy time of his life, the forefather of Judaism, Jacob, wrestled all night on the bank of the river Jabbok with a stranger. Some say it was an angel, some say it was a person, some say it was Jacob struggling with himself. As dawn came, the stranger gave Jacob a blessing, and a new name, Israel, which means to wrestle with God. I guide people through deep spiritual wrestling and deep learning, provoked by spiritual crisis or struggle but treated as an opportunity for spiritual growth, and I help guide them to new dawns."

Rabbi Sue Reinhold
Rabbi Sue Reinhold brings decades of experience as a learner, listener, business leader, entrepreneur & intrapraneur, student of culture, recovering addict, storyteller and scholar, and formal study of the methods of spiritual advising to her work in Braveheart Advising. Her first question is 'how can I help?' and her next question is 'tell me a story.'
Sue's favorite Jewish story is one that tells us that Joseph, the famous dream interpreter of the Torah, was not so good at interpreting the dream as he was in asking questions so that the dreamer could come to understand the meaning of the dream.
Having studied Torah intensely for 15 years, Sue was quick to apply Jewish wisdom to her teaching and advising, first as a professional teambuilder during her highly entrepreneurial career, and then up close and personal for a dozen years as a wealth manager and financial advisor. After some time executive coaching high-level executives, particularly in Jewish organizations, Sue's ordination as a rabbi in 2021 has paved the way for her path to her unique combination of executive coaching and spiritual advising.
Sue sees the Torah as a prism for life - a wise sage once said, "turn it, turn it, for everything is in it," and it is this approach that Sue relishes - especially when others show up and bring themselves to the conversation. Out of this practice, Sue's creative, Torah-rich executive coaching and spiritual advisory practice was born.
