If your business could talk, what would it say?
would it say...
Everyday I work with dozens of entrepreneurs who've invested thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars in coaching, and still find themselves so far away from who they are in their business and in their world.
They know what they don’t want, but are met with a sea of ‘do it like this, do it authentically but do it my way”, they don’t know which end is up.
My clients come to me not looking for magical things to happen overnight, but deeply seeking home — a full body exhale for their business in a world that says ‘be you, but not like that’.
Hi, I’m Rachel—a trauma informed business and leadership coach for misfits, artists, and creatives.
I take a Human First© approach to business with my wife, Sara.
Together, we support what a business beyond bro marketing could look like.
We don’t ask you to work like us, we ask you to peel back the layers of what you’ve been told you must, and work from your core instead.
“Rachel really embodies her human-first values in her coaching, which is why I know she would probably prefer that I tell you about how supportive it feels to work with her— the joy of how she makes you feel truly seen and held, and the relief of knowing someone so affirming, creative, and knowledgeable is on your team.
And all of that is true.
But my conductor side thinks all you need to know about my time with Rachel is this: within a few months of working together, I got a book agent, created a book proposal, and landed my dream book deal with Penguin Life.
The work we did in our calls together led directly to all of this.
Because Rachel is like salt in a good meal: she’s not there to change the way things taste, she’s there to help your flavors SHINE.
Her genius is the way she lifts up. enhances, and shine a spotlight on YOUR genius.”
do you feel like...
If you said yes to any of the above, we might be a good fit.
“Rachel has this "superpower" that not many business coaches have, she's invested in you as a person, she just so happens to know the in's and out's of authentic marketing. I've found other coaches to be invested in my success so they could then market my success and use it as their success. Rachel on the other hand, cares deeply about her client's happiness, and let me tell you, when you are seen as a person for who you are, the success you will achieve in your business is both limitless and inevitable.” –ALYSSA
Here’s a peek behind the scenes of 1:1, or really 1:2 (me and my wife + you), coaching:
Voxer Support M-F:
You’ll have full voxer (like text and voice message) access to both Sara and I for all your support needs. Because I only take on a small limited amount of clients per year, this messaging feature remains high touch support. We hold space for both the business, and the personal because I don’t believe business moves without the personal. Send me or Sara a message whenever you need, as often as you need.
Our work moves through three phases:
On our phone sessions we’re moving through these three phases to support, build, and create, what’s next in your business. Because this coaching moves around YOU, from your core, these sessions might move through all three phases at once, or one at a time. You might come needing to build a new offer, sell an offer, or simply talk for 60 min. There is room for all of you here.
6-12 month coaching:
Our coaching lives in a container of 6-12 months, with most clients staying on for 1 ½ -2 years. I don’t work like most business coaches, I’m not on the hunt to see you as a big problem, and we need to rush to fix them all in a certain period of time. You may come with big heavy things on your plate, and we’ll create room for it all—but this space is truly yours to have your process.
Before we go any further, I need you to know:
- All of our work is rooted in choice, consent, and collaboration.
- We don't not believe in hierarchy.
- We believe that you know yourself better than anyone else
- We do not assume to have a space space, only YOU can decide what is safe.
you'll walk away...
There IS another way to do business. One beyond the rigid rules of the business world. One that sees YOU first, and those around you.
I know it doesn’t always feel like that. I know it feels more like everything you love about what you do is slowly being choked out of you in order to run a ‘successful’ business.
Sara and I don’t have all the magical answers, but we do have space for you, and your process.
We use a philosophy called The Leadership Designs© as one of the ways to better understand what makes sense, and what doesn’t for how you work. We use these four archetypes to get a more clear picture of how you create, write, lead, market and sell. We intersect the four designs with trauma, privilege, and lived experience —so while this only gives us part of the picture, we can begin to not only create a business you feel like you in, also build one for your clients where they feel equally as welcome to exhale.
Q: What kind of people do you support?
A: All kinds! Teachers, therapists, sex educators, authors, activists, life coaches, business coaches, copywriters, graphic designers, astrologers, business coaches, anti diet dietitians, artists and more.
Q: What does our relationship look like?
A: I treat all my clients like a true relationship, which means that trust is built overtime. I do not assume I know you better than you know yourself, I don't demand you move on my terms. Everything we do is fit into your life, and that includes support.
Q: What makes this experience different from the other 2082 coaches I've hired?
A: Without knowing exactly what those experiences have looked like, I can tell you that above everything, you being able to access your internal safety is the most important thing to me. This is not a copy/paste coaching program. Every resource, tool, and ounce of support given to you is built and designed, around you. I intersect all of our work through the lens of trauma, privilege, and lived experience. I do not rush you, I do not ask you work like me—you have the power and control, and I'm here for guidance as you need, and how you need.
Q: Where is your trauma training from?
A: I completed Katie Kurtz program, CULTIVATE. Have been mentored by, and continue to be by Alyssa Pressman, a trauma trained therapist LCSW, and certified coach. And through Janina Fisher's complex trauma training.
“I don’t know how the hell I would’ve made it through my business without Rachel. During our time together I launched more offers than I ever had, was able to be more clear, intentional and direct in my marketing, and felt the most permission to try new creative things simply because I wanted to. Rachel helped me reconnect with my humanity, creativity and put the fire back into my voice. She supported me as I went through deep lows and was my biggest fan beside even my smallest of wins. She's damn good at what she does. With Rachel I never felt alone in my work and I don’t think we talk about how important that is. She made me feel brave as I did hard things and because of her I grew so much more within my business than I thought possible. Rachel will hold you to the best version of yourself, challenge you, and sit with you through the messy bits of entrepreneurship. She is undoubtedly the business mentor you’re looking for, literally run into her offer. Also she provides high quality tiktoks on demand— a true gift.” -Celina R

- Choose between 6-12 month commitment
- Extended payment plans available, up to 16 months

- Flexible options to fit each clients needs (we’ll never force one plan your way).

- Janina Fisher Complex Trauma Training
