Healing your heart ♦ Loving your child.
Children who feel empowered and connected become adults who live, love, and relate to others from a place of peace and interconnectedness.
Are you tired of fighting with your child and giving punishments that don’t work?
Overwhelmed by your family’s busy schedule?
Frustrated by the same power struggles every day?
Do you find yourself wondering… “Is this it? Is this what I signed up for”?
I hear you. I feel you – Parenting is hard.
I work together with parents to get them the results they are desiring now. The areas we might work in are :
- Overcoming past childhood wounds that led to current parent challenges
- Establishing deeper connections with children
- Creating a new level of co-operation within a frustrated family
I create a safe space for parents to express their feelings and identify their needs. Together, we dive into those needs and feelings to restructure parenting strategies and create a healthier happier family that works for everyone.
Hi, I’m Rachel
I help parents who are longing to bring peace, playfulness and connection into their relationships with their children. I’m here to help you overcome your parenting challenges so you can bring happiness and harmony into your home. I’d love to be your guide on the path from exhaustion to empowerment.
With over 25 years of working with children and families in Early Childhood Education, I’m here to bring ease to your parenting through my parent-centric program that shares non-violent communication, emotional intelligence and peaceful parenting methods. Not only do I have experience as a teacher, program director and parent educator, I also hold a Bachelor’s degree in Child Development, a Master’s degree in Education and I also am a Jai certified Conscious Parenting Coach. But maybe more importantly, I am a mom of 3 children ages 10, 12 and 14.
I’ve walked in your shoes and I’m ready to jump in the trenches with you. This is your time to choose to be an empowered parent and our chance to identify the sticking points that might be preventing the connections you and your child need.
Let’s journey together, shall we?
3 Ways I can help
Choose the level of support you want for your parenting journey.
The Journey Begins
12-week group program that meets weekly and includes playwork, audios, a private Facebook group, Facebook lives, and a one-on-one coaching call with me.
The transformation after these 12 weeks will leave you feeling confident, fulfilled, and connected with your children. You will be empowered to communicate consciously with your children and set boundaries based on family values.
Seeking The Summit
For ongoing support, “Seeking the Summit” is a 12-week journey where you will continue to explore your feelings around self-empathy, compassion, and forgiveness and our six primal emotions. You will find connection as you continue your journey through understanding your parenting triggers and re-pattern yourself towards peaceful strategies.
This supportive community meets weekly and includes playwork, a private Facebook group, Facebook lives, and two one-on-one coaching calls with me.
During this 1-hour call, I will listen to your parenting concerns and challenges.
After listening, I will ask questions and give guidance on how to best implement empowered parenting strategies into your relationships with your children.
The one-on-one coaching may be purchased as 3/6/or 12 session packages.
Before taking the Brave Parent Journey course with Rachel, I was stuck in a cycle of parenting that I think a lot of us find ourselves in. I felt a lot of guilt about making mistakes, resorting to yelling when I didn’t know what else to do, and I wasn’t taking enough ownership for any of the problems. I had deep-seated beliefs that I didn’t know were there. Rachel’s Brave Parent Journey helped me reframe my reality, my kids’ tantrums, my own tantrums, and my parenting past. I have more compassion and empathy for my children, my husband, and myself. One of my favorite takeaways from the course is that there is no right way to be a parent. Parenting is all about connection, empathy, and collaboration. This course changed my life. It not only impacted the way that I connect with my child but also the way in which I connect with myself and with other relationships. Things that I never thought would get better have completely disappeared. We used to struggle at dinner every single night with our picky eater. It was a battlefield and dinner always ended in exhaustion, frustration, and resentment. Through connection, collaboration, and a shift in beliefs, dinners are enjoyable and a great way for my family to connect on a daily basis. Rachel is kind, compassionate, and empathetic. She is a wonderful teacher who knows her stuff! She asks the right questions and really digs deep to get to the root of the problem. She is also a parent and is willing to be vulnerable and give personal examples of her philosophy at work! What I loved the most about Rachel’s Brave Journey Parent Course is that Rachel is someone I know I can trust not to judge me; she is supportive, empathetic, and truly cares about your parenting journey. I cannot wait to see the changes that are still to come. I’ll end this with a quote she shared, “Children, like all of us, need to be heard and understood.”
I am so grateful for all of the tools and knowledge I have learned from my Brave Parent Journey experience. I used to feel frustrated and resort to screaming. Now, those feelings and reactions are rare. I am much more aware of my children’s needs and can respond with a better approach. Because of this, there is more peace within myself and within my household. It has truly been a magical experience!
The world needs more Rachels. How beautiful would it be if we could all meet our children and each other with the empathy and compassion she models? Within the first week of our class, my family’s dynamic had already begun to shift. And since completing the entire course together I feel more confident and easeful in my parenting and relationships. Rachel’s patience and kind listening ear created space for healing and growth. And her gentle yet firm questioning challenged me in a way where I felt open and safe to reevaluate some of my parenting choices and unconscious patterns. With Rachel’s enthusiastic guidance, everyone in our group grew aware and worked together to wake up to the joy and delight of parenting through empathy and compassion. If you have the opportunity to work with Rachel, do it! It may not always be easy or comfortable, but it will most definitely be worth it.
