Hello my name is Rachael Harris or REH for short. Are you struggling even after traditional therapy to process your emotions, stress, and reactivity? I get it. I have been through a faith transition out of Mormonism, a mid-life unraveling, and a soul-stretching journey of self re-discovery over the last 5 years.

I am currently living outside of Charlotte, NC USA. But over my life I’ve lived all over the United States and even spent three years in Shenzhen, China. Although I have much to be thankful for in my life, I’ve also not had it so easy. Can you relate?

As a highly sensitive child it often felt like the world wasn’t built for me. I frequently related better to adults then to my peers. My parents, although they did their best, brought their generation trauma into their parenting. This set me up to be a people pleaser, chaser of conditional love, have low self-esteem and low self-worth, and a frequent feeling of “something is missing.” Unaware, I lived in fear of abandonment, fear of loss, and fear of being criticized when being my true self. This led to decades of self-abandonment, depression, and a chronic lack of peace or joy in my life.  

I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at 17, buying in easily to the promise of a supportive community and people you could count on, eternal marriage and families, purpose, and a personal relationship with God... With an authority who could tell you exactly how to be "good." I got married at 20 and had four children by the time I was 29. I was going through the motions. I was an excellent Latter Day Saint, and a sacrificing wife and mother who was determined to create the perfect family.

But when you aren’t solid in your core, all you are doing is building glass castles. In 2019 my castle crashed to the ground. Like an energy surge from deep within, something shifted. Everything that was suppressed came up, destroying everything I had built. My marriage ended, I left the church, I lost my mother, and got stranded away from my children for two and a half years (they were in China) because of Covid when I traveled home to America to attend to my mother’s death.

Two and a half years of solitude during a global pandemic, facing the ashes of my whole life, everything I thought I could count on, burnt to the ground. I had to restart EVERYTHING. This was the true beginning of my healing journey and the deep inner work that was required to rise from the ashes.

I can say now, through many healing modalities, experiences, and study I have a solid idea of who I am, what I want from life, where my boundaries are, and how to live in peace, joy, and personal solidarity (no more empty feeling!). I realized the calling of healer has always been my purpose, but I had to walk the walk FIRST.

Now I am here to help YOU. I have I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Brigham Young University, with an emphasis in research, writing, analysis, and philosophy. I received my life coaching certifications from Life Purpose Institute, Certified Life Coach (CLC) and Certified Spiritual Coach (CSC). I also attended a 30 hour course on Relationship Coaching. I chose Life Purpose Institute because it was founded by licensed marriage and family therapist, Fern Gordon, and their courses provided tools and instruction that are backed up by the International Coaching Federation. I have done over 110 hours of training between all of my classes, as well as many more hours of evaluated practice to attain my certifications. I have completed the Havening Practitioner Course and Certification. I have also studied and practiced somatic release, mediation, breathwork, and sound healing.

I believe that there is more to healing then just talk therapy (although I do recommend having a good psychologist in your corner!). Emotions, memories, and energy from stressful events are stored in our bodies and in our minds. I use many healing modalities, Havening being one of them, to help you release and heal what is stored in your mind and body that stops you from getting the most out of this precious life.

I have named my personal healing approach IBEAR - Intentional Body and Emotional Actualization and Reconciliation. Work with me and together we will focus on awareness in the body, the emotions, and your personal energy. We will work on goals and learn tools around personal actualization. We will work together to reconcile the divide between the body, the emotions, and the spirit. This approach will help you have an accelerated, whole person transformation. Learn to be at the helm of your emotions; not repressed and not overcome. Together we will dig down to the root of your reactivity, find awareness, release, and HEAL it. Your personal and spiritual growth will be transformed.
