Can’t say enough about Rachel!

This is going to sound dramatic, but between her podcast and books, Rachel really has changed my life. As a new mom I struggled with following my instincts and going against all of the “shoulds” and norms of American society. She helped me trust and lean into my gut, follow my instincts, and have the language to articulate what I’m passionate about in the world of parenting and beyond. I can’t recommend her and her work enough. I’m a happier, more free, more grounded and more content version of myself. Thank you Rachel!
