Individual counseling sessions increase self-awareness, self-responsibility, and self-love. We explore the role of our inner teacher and how to listen through empowerment, integration, and embodiment.

"Rachael hosted a true, warm and open space for my process to unfold. I felt confident in her lack of judgment from the first moment, which allowed my full expression to come forth and for me to explore immediately. I am so grateful to Rachael for creating and holding this space for me and others."
- Kristen Luce, Consultant/Counselor
Spiritual Wellness & Retreats
Wellness Retreats provide the opportunity to rejuvenate, slow down, and connect with your highest Self. We provide the space, containment, and witnessing to rediscover balance, allow fluidity, and reconnect with your inner sense of peace and calm. Retreats are designed upon request and create an environment that opens to the deeper truths of self-reflection, personal enrichment, and healing. Previous themes have included the balance of masculine & feminine, intuition & intention and stillness & movement.
"Rachael holds space for deep body practices in a gentle and subtle way- she offers up guidance without imposing any of her own ideas, allowing the participants to create a genuine relationship to the practice, ourselves and each other. Rachael’s ease of presence, sense of humor, humbleness and embodiment make her the ideal leader/facilitator for therapeutic and movement based practices."
-Hannah Kinderlerlehrer, Mom/Dance Teacher
What is Authentic Movement?
Authentic Movement is a body-referenced and movement-centered awareness practice in which there is a mover (client) and a witness (therapist). With eyes closed, the mover listens to, and follows an inner impulse to move in the presence of an accepting witness. Movement may arise from sensation, image, memory, thought, and/or direct experience. This practice supports individuals to align with and move their essential truth in the presence of another, strengthening their ability to track embodied experience, and practicing self-referencing speech as a means to bring consciousness to their body’s wisdom.
"The very clear joy radiated by Rachael is tangible. Her warmth, energy and patience are beautiful and simple, and I simply wanted to learn from her because of how inviting and open she is. I felt fully able to explore my own self expression and needs during the workshop because of Rachael’s ability to create such a lovely, inviting, and safe space."
-Kerri Entin, Physician
