Through the relocation, my depression and divorce, and overcoming intensive disordered eating, I created a process to get me through the challenges that call for soul-stretching growth.
We all have challenges. Its a beautiful part of life, and I’ve had my share as well. And while I don’t believe in identifying myself as a victim or victor over challenges, I do know that who I am today is a result of my experiences.
I started taking anti-depressants when I was 11, after I failed multiple classes in grade-school. The doctors said it was a traumatic brain injury. It was also severe ADHD (another one of my superpowers that was poorly mislabeled.)
Through this I learned that who we present to the world is often a mask. And to appreciate who is inside simply takes an open loving space for our highest selves to emerge.
The teachers didnt know how to teach me, my peers didnt understand dad jokes, and I felt totally isolated. So I started people pleasing and taking on hobby’s that didnt vibe with my natural gifts.
There was always an inner rebel inside that said “Rach… what are you doing? Why am I not enough?” But I didnt know how to listen to her, I was so desparate for others approval.
Through this, I learned that I get to appreciate my own sense of humor. And that my learning style is different from others and it is MORE than OK. I learned how to teach myself, and make things work for MY brain, learning and evaluating my progress without comparing my perceived weaknesses to others perceived strengths
I got married at 19 to trot across the globe to Hunan China, where I felt an isolation I’d never felt before. Depression, a new husband who didnt know how to cope with marriage, no social support, and no way out of my English Teaching contract, I discovered binge eating for the first time.
Again, the warrior inside kept pressing. “Rachel, you are worth more. This not who you are.”
Binge eating taught me how to love my body, feel my emotions and belief in my inner strength. I learned how to commit wholeheartedly, learn with love and explore my life with curiosity instead of judgement.
Divorcing my husband was a piece of cake. Moving to China- not too bad. But binge eating was the darkest tunnel for me to work through. Yet it taught me how to love myself and my body unconditionally, even when I was really struggling.
Each obstacle helped me learn a new skill, a new way of turning TOWARDS myself. Of growing my confidence in my ability to navigate any challenge
Each trial taught me one piece of

I started noticing changes in my confidence and self-compassion and the time it took me to complete my work tasks.
I have overcome procrastination, am putting myself out there and saying how I feel more and more now.
Rachel was very good at getting to the root of an issue and I would highly recommend her services for anyone who is ready to stop procrastinating and take action.

Megelyn Hokanson, Doula, Marriage and Family Therapist
Taking the time everyday to work through the “Learning to Love You” worksheets has really helped me uncover what prevents me from loving myself.
I have become more confident and aware of who I really am, which is reducing my urge to binge.
It only took a few minutes each day, but those minutes were so valuable! I’m doing them again!
In The Badass Academy Program you will learn how to have unconditional self confidence
You don’t have to feel like a fully fledged badass to learn these skills.
The steps will take you from doubt to confidence as you practice them. Even if you have inconsistent spurts of confidence, you can make it your norm.
Here is a breakdown of what you will learn in the 12 Week signature 1-1 Program
This is how we will get you to feeling TOTALLY IN LOVE with yourself, your life and confident in your ability to handle any challenge that comes your way.
Foundations- Problem-The real reason you don’t feel confident, and how to locate it at any given time.
Foundations- The Solution– What to do when you find the real cause of lack of confidence
Badass Goals-The goal setting process for creating any result you want.
Clarity– Exactly what you see your life being like and why you want it.
Emotional Skills– Develop coping skills before problematic behaviors and feelings surface
Your Relationship with Yourself– Knowing and loving your past, loving and accepting your present self
How to Release the Past– Cut energetic ties (its a little woo and a lot of fun) to untangle your current self from your past ways of thinking
Luscious Self-Talk– Treat yourself better than you expect others to treat you.
Building the Future– Put your dreams in the drivers seat to be the protagonist of your own story
Creating Results from Confidence– Learn from mistakes to build trust with yourself
The 12 Step Process- Putting it all together.– Tying the framework together
Making the decision to sign up for this program is the first decision in having your back, no matter what happens.
Choosing something different than you have chosen before is an act of courage.
It is you going against the grain of what your brain is programmed to do. You know it will require you to make changes, and that you may come up against taking actions you thought were previously too hard.
You are not crazy.
I had doubts before as well, before I saw the power that unconditional self-confidence could really make in my life.
I was there too before I signed up for my first coach, and decided that I was committed to showing up for me in a bold new way.
I had no idea the difference that it would make. That I’d be able to look at my body with love, truly believing that it was perfect.
That I could make a goal, have it take longer than I want, and STILL show up and have hella fun in the process.
That even when I felt like shit, I could still feel lit up by a vision of a more evolved self.
And that she was alongside me every step, cheering me on.

As a direct result of the coaching sessions, with Rachel I finally made the decision to set up my own company and go back to physical activity.
I feel more in power of my decisions, more clear on what I want to achieve and my next steps.
I now know that “bad things can happen in life’ but so what?
I can handle them.

No matter the decision we make together, you will walk away with a new understanding of the problem, and a new lens for the solution.

Its normal to have thoughts like:
Ive tried so many things before and it hasn’t worked yet.
There are too many things about me that I need to fix before I can feel REALLY confident.
Why is this any different?
I have no idea where I’d start.
I have too many goals I want to work on.
I’m too isolated in the current global situation.
I’m afraid my current mental health will make it too hard.
It’s going to be harder for me than for everyone else.
What if it doesn’t work?
What if I do all this work and I STILL don’t have the confidence I desire?
One of the first things you’ll learn in the Confidence Program is how to lay the foundation for a new relationship with yourself, and how to change your thinking to that of the superhero woman you have inside of you.
These thoughts are TOTALLY normal, and nothing has gone wrong.
It just means you are doing something different, and taking a leap of faith towards a different future.
You can totally do this.

I think Rachel’s coaching session can provide people a different perspective of view to re-evaluate what we believed to certain things. I now have a tool can help me to discover the true reason behind my action pattern.
It makes me aware of my mindset and makes me believe that I do have several options to deal with my emotion.
I now believe that I have the ability to achieve things I want. All I have to do is to redirect my thought and let that thought serve me to acquire the things I want.
