In their own words...


J. M. -Fayettville, NC

Rachel was instrumental in providing me with tools and resources I greatly needed during some of the darkest seasons of my life. Her compassion, encouragement, and knowledge regarding emotional health and grief resilience changed me. She helped me find the strength and courage to move forward and work through the pain. Rachel also helped me change my mindset about the role of food and nutrition in self-care. 

I am forever thankful for her help and counsel.

D. J. - San diego, ca

Rachel has been refined by fire. She has walked through the most painful of circumstances, more than once. She has compassion, empathy, and strength that have come from living and healing through loss. Rachel has talked with me through several life situations and losses. I also deal with depression and she has shown me hope even in the darkest moments.

God has given her a gift in helping people heal. 

J. C. -Ojai, CA

I am thankful for the emotional support and guidance Rachel offered me after my husband had an affair and left. My pain was deep and at times seemed unbearable. I am feeling better, stronger, and more powerful. The nutritional supplements and teas she suggested helped me significantly. With time, and Rachel’s warm heart and help, I am hopeful I will feel whole again.       

What I appreciate most is her multifaceted approach.

It is deeply painful to watch someone you love hurting, especially when you are unsure how to help them. I can give you the tools and insights you need to be a better support to a hurting loved one. If you work with hurting people regularly in your job or organization, I can help you to acquire the skills you need to turn your good intentions into effective care and comfort.

I'm not grieving, but someone I love is, can you help me help them?

Loss comes in many forms. If your heart is hurting for any reason - traditional or untraditional, tangible or intangible, present or past, simple or complex - I can help you. You don't have to have a so called traditional loss to work with me. If you are carrying around unresolved pain for any reason, I can equip you to heal your heart and support you every step of the way.

My Loss isn't a death or Divorce, can I still work with you? 

Much of the information available about healing after loss is inconsistent, antiquated, and down right incorrect. I've spent more than a quarter of my life seeking out the truth about what heals to offer support, tools, and a plan instead of unhelpful talk therapy or generic and vague advice.

How is what you teach different?

I am not a therapist. I'm an educator and mentor who applied more than a decade of personal healing experience after the deaths of my baby daughters in 2008 to guide others through loss to healing. My highly effective programs, courses, and retreats are the result of years of learning and practicing what works to heal after loss.

Are you a liscensed therapist?
