hi, I'm Rachel... Astrologer, Somatic Practitioner, Transformational Coach to High-Achieving, Purpose Driven Entrepreneurs

I'm the secret weapon behind spiritual leaders and conscious entrepreneurs — helping them increase their impact and income, while creating more space for relaxation, enjoyment, self-care..... and, of course, adventure.

My Story

 The spiritual journey began when I was three.

Raised in a devoutly religious home, I was fiercely devoted to my spiritual path, while simultaneously questioning everything.  As a kid I was sorting through gaps in theology, and unpacking discrepancies in all I was taught… an early start to building a lifelong muscle for  discernment and seeking truth.

When I was fourteen, my journey with healing the physical body began….  I  became ill with what appeared to be some kind of stubborn virus, accompanied by massive brain fog and a host of bizzare neurological symptoms that wouldn’t go away.

(I was eventually diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).

I learned to give myself shots daily to boost my immune system, and the word from the doctors was that it would never fully go away –  but could be managed with medication and lifestyle adjustments.

not satisfied, this launched my early exploration into the worlds of alternative medicine and holistic health.


It was the late eighties/ early nineties, and holistic & alternative health was still considered “fringe”… but I sought out everything I could find and diligently applied it. 

I accumulated a ton of knowledge, and massively improved a number of symptoms- but still had to manage my health all the time, and flare-ups were unpredictable.

Drawn to creative work, I studied acting, received a BFA in Theater Performance, and spent several years doing theatre and film work in Los Angeles.  (While I’ll always love acting, I now know that I was really in search of the experience of fully *being the channel* – allowing the life force energy and creative flow to pour through me, every moment.)

I also directed my  passion for body-mind wellness into studying massage and bodywork, specializing in Myofascial Release-  which I found had profound effects for my clients in injury recovery and releasing stored trauma from the body.  I worked in several chiro and acupuncturist offices, and eventually opened my private practice in LA, which I ran for the next ten years.

Highly successful on the outside with a waitlist to work with me, I loved my work. 

Inside, I was still quietly managing my own health and clinical depression…. along with seeming “blocks” in my ability to fully create all I wanted to manifest.

And at the core of it all: I was managing a high level of dysregulation in my nervous system (though I wasn’t fully aware of that, yet).

Turning Point

I hit a healing crisis in 2016 when I  tapered off antidepressant meds that had been keeping my brain functioning, and wound up spiralling out epically for about 18 months. 

The withdrawal symptoms from the meds contributed to a perfect storm, as dormant physical symptoms resurged with a vengeance, and stored trauma and terror flooded my nervous system 24/7 for over a year.  (I won’t try to describe this dark night of the soul, as I may never have words for the experience).

But, the important point: it was during this darkest hour that I was introduced to the power of nervous system regulation  and somatic trauma release.

Working with my nervous system (on multiple levels) was what finally turned it all around. 

I’d been doing all the work on all the levels for decades… but regulating my nervous system was the piece that allowed the effects of all the healing work to connect and land in my body.

And after an intense (2 year) period of learning and embodying what it truly means to regulate the nervous system…. there was a  day when I realized that not only had I made it through the withdrawal-induced nightmare, but the chronic health symptoms I’d been living with for three decades were actually gone.

I cried with relief, for weeks on end, when I realized that after thirty years, the thing that I’d given up hope on ever happening was actually here.

my health was fully back. 

Next Steps

Unexpectedly reclaiming my full health in my forties, and suddenly having all the energy I needed (for the first time I could remember), was a totally wild experience.

I immediately launched into a 3 year training as a Somatic Experiencing Practioner® ( SEP)… as this work had been a key piece of my healing journey, and I knew there was powerful medicine here for guiding clients in their own self-regulation.

simultaneously: with a regulated nervous system to hold the energy, my spiritual and intuitive gifts suddenly 10x’ed. 

 I’d studied astrology for decades without thinking much about it — it  was simply a language I understood, which spoke to me and brought depths of insight and clarity to any situation. 

I’d never had plans to do astrology readings for others… but suddenly, folks were knocking on my virtual door, asking for readings, and referring multiple clients to  me. 

It seemed my role was simply to show up and say yes — so I did. 

More Surprises

in 2023, I suddenly had the desire out of the blue to pack up and go travel full time. (North Node in Sagittarius  and Aquarius stellium- iykyk).

And I realized with a jolt that the physical healing journey was THAT complete… because for decades, an adventure like this would have been radically outside my reality to even imagine.

(and adventure, if it calls?)


If we’re meant to work together and you already sense that, it’s likely you fall into one of these descriptions…

— Somatic Nervous System Regulation

You’re a successful entrepreneur who’s rocking it out in your mission, but already have a sense that your nervous system is storing stress and trauma, and you need a new baseline of regulation to fully support you

Clients often hire me because they want to move from 6 to 7 figures (or their next leap) without feeling frazzled and exhausted…  and they know they need their nervous system on board with the expansion, and working FOR them (instead of spinning out).

Dysregulation in the nervous system or stored trauma that’s capping your income and ability to fully epxand, and the mindset and talk therapy hasn’t reached.

(Trauma is often stored in “wordless” places, which is why it’s so powerful to go in directly through the body instead of the mind. This means that you don’t even have to know what the trauma is, remember it, revisit it, or give me any details. We talk directly to your body and discharge the energy that needs to be released. End of story).
