Rachel’s Bio

ABOUT Rachel, Writer & Certified Intuitive Healer


In the year 2006, Rachel had an unforgettable experience that tore down the walls of her mind and influenced the course of her life. While stretched out on a couch in a hypnotherapist’s office, Rachel watched with eyes closed as a tiny butterfly of radiant light fluttered towards her and then dove into her fetus body. For a fleeting second, Rachel felt her soul’s innate joy and excitement. A feeling so intensely beautiful that it became a beacon for her. A guiding light that gently reminded Rachel of her true essence — a care-free soul saturated with LOVE.

However for the majority of Rachel’s life, inner peace and joy seemed eons away. As a child, Rachel was painfully shy and anxious. Her 20s were a roller coaster ride of eating disorders, substance abuse, anxiety and self loathing. Deep into the midst of her 30s, a knotted ball of anxiety camped out in her gut, leaving her often breathless, disorientated and panicked.

In the spring of 2009, during a fiercely stressful time in her life, Rachel participated in her first meditation/energy healing workshop. In this powerful course, Rachel discovered (very much to her own surprise) that she possessed natural gifts as a clairvoyant and clairsentient. In other words, she could tune into people’s energy and receive images and information regarding their underlying emotions and physical health.

Since this initial workshop nearly 10 years ago, meditation has been Rachel’s steady companion. Her spiritual journey has offered her a new way of living and being. Rather than running or hiding (Rachel’s knee-jerk reactions to life), Rachel practices pausing to shine light within, feeling her emotions and letting them go. Instead of relentlessly judging herself, Rachel holds herself with compassion.

In December 2015, Rachel became a certified Intuitive Healer. She helps people to reveal and release their buried emotions, devitalizing beliefs and fears so that they may feel calmer, healthier, happier, lighter and freer. By tuning into an individual’s energy, Rachel receives images and feelings related to anything that is up for healing; for example, emotions and beliefs picked up during childhood, past life roots and much more.

Rachel is also a co-authour of an international best selling book titled “Expect Miracles: 10 beautiful souls share stories of Hope, Inspiration & Transformation”. Her blog hosts articles that allow readers to look at our relationships, our wellbeing and our life through a lens of awareness, healing and love.

Together with her two beautiful daughters and husband, Rachel lives in Vancouver, Canada. She enjoys spending her free time hanging out with her kids at the beach, on the ocean and in the city’s green parks.

“Rachel is an incredibly gifted healer. She sees things in a way that immediately make sense to me and her intuitive perspective always ends up shedding more light on the subject than I could have imagined. Each session feels intense and liberating. I can literally feel energy shifting.” (Genevieve Chenoweth, Toronto, Ontario)

“I cannot say enough about Rachel’s powerful intuitive healing sessions. I have had many amazing sessions with her over the years. Most recently she helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life. From the time of my sister’s diagnosis of terminal cancer to her passing two short months later, Rachel helped me prepare for my sister’s eventual passing. She helped to calm my fear and anxieties, and ultimately coached me in how to connect with my sister in the most transformative way. Rachel has a powerful gift and has truly found her calling. I can never thank her enough.”
(Bernadette, Victoria, B.C.)

“Rachel has guided me into some of my core issues and helped me to see and release stored traumas and emotions from a different perspective, one of non-judgement and healing. Through my work with Rachel, I have been able to move past emotional blocks that were holding me back in certain areas of my life and to shine light into places I didn’t feel comfortable looking at on my own. I am so grateful to work with such a wonderful intuitive healer and guide. I highly recommend her services.” (Kristi M., Vancouver, B.C.)

“After only working with Rachel once a week for three weeks, my world changed more dramatically than I had anticipated. I couldn’t believe how much less stress I felt and how much more connected to my happiness I became. Life’s little problems that were bothering me suddenly melted away. Even my daughter told me when I missed a guided meditation: “Mommy, you need to go see Rachel”. It’s crazy how life can get away from you and you forget how wonderful it really is. Rachel will bring you back to what really matters and guides you how to get there.” (Janiece Wiens, Vancouver, B.C.)

“After spending many months of research and trying different methods, I turned to Rachel to give me insight into my dog’s bizarre behaviour. Rachel had never been to my home, but in her visions she precisely described my back yard and could see and feel my dog’s fixation with the fence that borders my neighbour’s property. She explained to me the anxiety he was having and what I can do to help him heal. As a result, my dog is no longer intensely fixated with the fence, and is now relaxed in the back yard.” (Lisa L., Kelowna, B.C.)
