I work from an island in the Pacific Northwest, where I live wild and free in connection with my hilarious husband and three growing sailors in our fixer upper on the beach. I authentically live this healing work out loud raising my own neurodivergent family (inner child included) and draw on my decades of education and experience (I've done all the nerdy work so you don't have to) to guide a revolution of overwhelmed parents just like you to feeling at peace within yourself, consciously connected with your children, embraced by a supportive community, and enjoying a values-aligned life you love.

Hi friend,

Read my story →


"... in our own lives as adults and in our roles as parents and nurturers. Her training in family therapy and knack to reveal 'what could be really going on under those layers?' paves the way for deep and grounding conversations. She is never at a loss for practical examples, and invites you to think about what things could look like in your own home, even when it looks differently than hers. I love the way the topics are simply arranged - take your pick, she's covered just about everything."

What makes this podcast different is Rachel's unapologetic drive to question why we do things the way we do ...

Kind words
