A healing session can be strictly silent hands on energy healing or it can be more an emotional talk therapy session with intuitive hands on healing as needed. She uses all her facets to create and hold space for the client. Her passion is to reignite the spark within every client and to empower and lift the vibrations and energy of each one she touches. She believes everyone has the innate ability to radiate and function at their highest good and her intention is to help usher that in.
She feels strongly that each parent and family can feel empowered in their role given
the right tools, knowledge, and support. Her passion is rooted in her deep respect and
belief in the way of all the ancestors that did this work for centuries before and the
ideology that it takes a village. After having her own postpartum doula practice she is
thrilled to be joining the Glow family of practitioners to more fully build each client’s
“village”. In working alongside all the practitioners at Glow she is confident that it
provides a safety net of all the components of care and an integrated approach that is
rare to find in the postpartum period and the health care system.
Rachel has always worked in roles of healing and caretaking. She was an early
childhood educator for many years and has worked with infants through toddlerhood
and their families for the last 15 years. She has a holistic approach and likes to meet her
clients where they are and support them in whatever way they need. She brings all her
knowledge to the table and pulls from the parts that seem to be most beneficial and
relevant to the client.
Rachel was born in San Francisco,raised in Seattle and lived in LA and NY. She now
calls Seattle her home where she lives with her partner, children and two dogs. When
not with clients you can find her trying to snuggle her “not-so-baby-babies”, doing barre,
meditating, reading, watering her plants, eating an abundance of kale and kimchi and
trying with limited success to read her partner his horoscope.
