I come alongside overwhelmed parents and offer another way—parents like you who hear the call of "gentle, natural, simple," but have lost their way in the noise of unmet needs and mainstream advice. You'll heal, learn, and practice, shifting onto a path where you’ll feel at peace within yourself, consciously connected with your children, embraced by a supportive community, and enjoying a values-aligned life you love.

"Being a Sage Mama feels like being in a connected and loving community, all cozied up around a fire. What she has created is beautiful and it is my one stop go to for support for almost everything and it all weaves together like a snuggly knitted scarf. The village is the hub where we all grow and support each other in a non judgmental way. The coaching is the perfect addition for when you are in need of diving deep into something (2 45 minute sessions with her was ground breaking and did the work of years of therapy). The courses are the like the foundations, always there to remind us of what we have learnt. It is honestly so difficult to put into words just how brilliant Rachel is! She is our lighthouse in the storm, our rock and feels like a friend holding us through it all. I cannot recommend her enough."

Rachel changes lives, fact! She has had an incredible impact on myself and my family.
