working with rae has been an extraordinarily transformative experience. rae met me were i was + made herself available by text + email throughout our coaching so i always felt supported. with rae’s help, i was able to understand that although my relationship with food + money appeared to be distinct, they shared a common root. identifying this allowed me to begin working on changing patterns of self-care + self love. the conversation in my head shifted + i am kinder + gentler with myself than i have ever been. it’s so refreshing! rae provided me with the space + tools to truly work on myself. i am deeply grateful to her + cannot recommend her highly enough!

my coaching experience with rae has been life changing. + i don’t say that lightly! rae has an uncanny ability to connect with people + understand them. i always felt like our sessions were a safe space to share anything + everything; i never felt judged + i I felt like i could be vulnerable. i remember that one of the first things we discussed was how small changes can make a big difference. i didn’t quite understand the import of that until we started getting in to our sessions. now, i feel like it’s a new way of living + i can see how what seems like the simplest or smallest change, can literally change your morning, or your whole day, or even your life. for anyone that is considering wellness coaching, but isn’t sure if it is for them, i offer this: for many of us, it’s hard to find balance with career, family, obligations, etc. you don’t need to want to lose weight or have some specific goal when you come in to coaching. rae will meet you where you are (figuratively) + you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the ways in which she can help you live your best life. she’ll hold you accountable, but she’ll also help you through it. she’s always professional, but she’s also like a friend. rae has helped me to tap into my creativity + to foster healthy + sustainable habits + routines that i now cherish + that are only mine. As an effectively single parent, working full time, this has been truly life changing. i’m thriving, not just surviving + i’m making progress, not striving for perfection!
