Daily Chess Improvement: Devious Chess Tactic!

This chess position is based on the game between Emily Nguyen and Thalia Cervantes at US Girl's Championship

In the real game, black played 45...Rh5 to provoke a self-mate chess trap. White did not fall for it and played 46. g4 in the actual chess game. But this position is based on the idea that white would play 46. Re6 instead.

How should black proceed in this chess position?
