Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach
Hi there, I’m Rachael.
I graduated from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy (FMCHC) and I am a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) as well as a certified Yoga Instructor.
In 2014, I was diagnosed with two autoimmune conditions. I quickly realized that conventional medicine wasn’t going to offer me any long-term, sustainable solutions. I knew I needed to radically change my life. I committed to several on-going self-care practices, diving deep into the relationship I held with myself as a whole and working with varied holistic practitioners. Two years later I was free of prescription medication-and both diagnoses were in remission.
Functional Medicine Health Coaching or Lifestyle Medicine partners with individuals in a client-centered process to support their health and well-being. I’m trained to work closely with clients (or patients) around all lifestyle factors such as sleep, relaxation, movement, nutrition, stress, and relationships that influence health. I support behavior change, using techniques such as motivational interviewing and appreciative inquiry – while establishing rapport, connecting, and building trust.
My fundamental belief centers on the transformative potential of coaching, as it empowers individuals to tap into their intrinsic strengths, cultivate self-awareness, and adopt effective self-management strategies. I am deeply passionate about the pivotal role of self-relationship in shaping our behaviors. To me, self-care is tantamount to healthcare, and I champion the idea that within us lies the innate wisdom and capacity for healing, allowing us to live in harmonious alignment with our authentic selves.
I look forward to partnering with you on your health journey!

"Rachael is incredibly kind, supportive and accepting. A very good listener, she was fantastic at helping me zero in on what mattered to me most and helping me define a clear goal that I could achieve in between sessions. She was easy to talk to and allowed me to feel comfortable to unload what was on my mind and share what I was feeling. She also inspired me to try new things when I was feeling stuck and followed up every session with resources and a question or two for me to think about in relation to what we had talked about. I remember looking forward to our sessions every week as I felt empowered afterwards and hopeful for the future."
