Hi, I'm Rachel and I've got good news...
YOU CAN BE THE WOMAN YOU WANT TO BE.
Feeling like you’re not good enough, you’re not successful enough, your partner deserves better, your body isn’t hot enough, you’re not where you should be at this point in your life? Bleh. The real truth is, dwelling on these feelings keeps you from being the happy, confident, and sexy woman you know deep down you really are.
BEING HARD ON YOURSELF ISN'T GETTING YOU ANYWHERE. IT'S MAKING YOU FEEL CRUMMY AND WORSE, IT'S GETTING IN THE WAY OF GETTING WHAT YOU WANT.
Focusing on your flaws and failings prevents you from finding happiness—in yourself, your job, and your relationships. You’re not perfect; no one is, and the truth is you don’t have to be.
Let’s face it—being hard on yourself just doesn’t work. I teach women how to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin so they can finally stop self-sabotaging. Because that's the real secret to creating a joy-filled life you love.
I learned this lesson the hard way.
I had moxie in my teens and early 20s. When I was 16, I drove around with a bumper sticker telling the world I was “Beautiful & Single.” Maybe it was a bit obnoxious, but I felt sexy, self-assured, powerful. Anything was possible.
I had life by the horns. Then I lost it.
Somebody wrote “NOT” in shaving cream on my back windshield with an arrow pointing to my prized bumper sticker. I overheard someone say, “Oh Rachel, she's not as pretty as she thinks she is.” I got dumped. One boyfriend moved to California without even breaking up with me first. After graduating summa cum laude with an art history degree, I couldn't get a paid job in the art world to save my life. It was just life happening, but I didn't know how to handle it. I started to lose my sense of who I was and why I was valuable. I proceeded to spend most of my 20s underemployed and undervaluing my worth.
Somehow along the way, how I looked became the dominant story of my life. My “Problem Skin” turned into full-blown angry, cystic, painful acne.
I felt desperate to heal it, and I tried everything I could think of — cleanses, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, a three-month elimination diet. And in between each new supposedly magic solution, I binged and drank to distract myself from how terrible I felt.
I thought my body was the one thing I should be able to control. For two years, I was either uncomfortably bloated or scarily skinny. Through it all, I felt guilty for failing, for being weak, and for being unable to fix myself.
I realize now that I was simply desperate to feel good enough.
My skin and my eating issues were just a way to distract myself from how lost and unsure I felt.
My healing started when I stopped beating myself up - for failing the various diets and more importantly, for not being where I thought I should be in my life by now. I began to forgive and value myself despite my imperfections. Then I embraced them. I stopped the false starts and quit obsessing about how I looked. Learning to love myself allowed me to heal my eating disorder and my acne. It has also allowed me to share my truth, to put myself out there, to own my worth as a coach, and build this business. Most importantly, it's allowed to me to relax and to enjoy my life.
I learned to embrace my body, to feel comfortable naked, to stop holding myself back from going for what i want. And my life got awesome.
My moxie was beaten out of me. Then I decided to live life on my own terms—set my own standards for love, my career, my body. I chose to be my true self in relationships. I took chances and tried a lot of different jobs. I’ve done a lot of cool shit - traveled the world (over 20 countries), worked on organic farms, went skydiving (twice!), volunteered with kids, moved to new cities, I even went salsa dancing by myself one time - all because I decided the only standards that matter are my own.
having always been hard on myself, i never would have guessed embracing who and where you are is the secret to creating a joy filled life, but it has completely changed my life. and i'm here to teach you how to do the same.
Are you stuck in cycle of self-criticism and self-sabotage?
We think that being hard on ourselves keeps us motivated, keeps us pushing our own boundaries. Occasionally it does. But for the most part, it just makes us feel bad. It leads us to gloss over what's going well and to magnify what isn't. It leads us to start ambitious plans and then falter, second-guess ourselves, and quit. It leads us to eat, to drink, to watch hours of TV, to do whatever it takes to numb the pain.
You know you were meant to be happy, to flourish, to adventure, to really live your life—all the way up. And I am here to tell you that that is 100% possible.
You can overcome your inner critic, the constant comparison, the sense that you are lagging behind. And you don’t have to do it alone. My life changed when I hired my own coach, and I’ve watched it happen time and time again with my own clients.
Is it time to stop getting in your own way and to start living a life you love?
Working With Me
The first step is to stop the self-sabotaging behaviors that prevent you from being happy. We will work together to identify what makes you feel unmotivated, unsuccessful, overwhelmed, afraid, or unworthy and end those practices for good.
From there, I’ll coach you to consciously build your confidence by embracing your body and yourself. You’ll start to accept your imperfections and build your sense of self-worth. We’ll work together to discover what you truly want from life—a new job, a loving partner, to start your own business; or maybe you are just seeking permission to feel safe in and fully enjoy all that you already have—whatever it is, I’ll help you build the confidence to get it.
Feeling sexy isn’t about having the body, the income, the partner you’re told you should. It’s not about crazy eating patterns and self-deprivation. It’s about being comfortable in who you are, what you have, and what you want.
Throughout our coaching sessions, I’ll help you silence your inner critic, set your own standards, and radically appreciate where you are and where you’re going.
Because that's my big mission: to free the spirited, open-hearted, longing-for-joy women of the world from self-criticism and self-sabotage.
A world full of confident, joyful women - that's the world I want to live in and that I work daily to create.
