How I got here,
…and Why I’m a Life Coach

As a transgender woman, I know the risks of being true to one’s self at the deepest level. I speak from experience when I say that with a bit of courage, the right kind of support, and yes, some risk, successful change always leads to a rich, fulfilling life.

The idea of transition or “coming out” isn’t limited to sexuality or gender. Life eventually forces all of us to choose between becoming real and showing up in our lives, or staying safely—if miserably—hidden.

I spent a large portion of my life hidden behind any facade I could spin to keep my fears and confusion packed up so tight no one could possibly see me. From that space, that seemed so safe, I ran a business, had relationships and periodically showed up at events in my life that I thought made a difference.

Breaking down those walls and un-raveling the beliefs that kept me frozen in fear and self loathing was not a cake walk. In retrospect, doing the work to get though the roughs patches wasn’t all that hard and in the end the rewards have been amazing! Things like increased self-awareness, self-confidence, connecting with other people and a willingness to be vulnerable.

Professionally, and prior to becoming a certified Whole Person Life Coach, I was an expert in solving puzzles;

I owned several successful businesses. I’ve been on the cutting edge of designing and manufacturing new equipment for start-up industries. I designed and patented equipment and had the pleasure of watching most of it work well and sell.

Yes, there were times I drove myself crazy trying to get to the bottom of a failed idea, all the while saying to myself “I can do this myself” or “I just can’t afford help.” What I didn’t realize at the time was how my assumptions got in the way of what I could really accomplish. So, I’ve been there. Self doubt, un-helpful beliefs and general stubbornness!

Having let go of past self-imposed restraints (indoctrinated beliefs) I decided to follow my hearts desire and help others to stretch towards believing in themselves, achieving the things they want, and become the best shiny being they can possible be.

So lets make this easy! I offer an awesome support system that takes in all the areas of your life. I’m here to help you gather your courage, align your thoughts and ideas with your goals and actions, then support you in Making it Happen!

Greetings! For over fifteen years, I have supported individuals and organizations through various forms of change and transformation. I have worked with numerous Fortune 500 companies to help them identify their future state and supported them through this shift as a system. Throughout this process, I’ve partnered with many leaders to as they re-define their vision and serve as impactful positive role models.

Additionally: I’m especially passionate about helping those who have felt dis-empowerment at some point in their lives to reclaim their power and who they are in the world. As an Asian-American woman, I have deep familiarity with the experiences of some disenfranchised populations in the United States. My doctoral research focused on how one transforms from a state of dis-empowerment relative to the social environment to a stance of power and ownership of self in the world. This integrated the fields of Transformative Learning and Somatics as a methodology to support positive change.

Specialties: Organizational Change and Transformation, Organizational Consulting, Leadership Development, Adult Learning, Human Development, liberatory practices.

Coaching Bio:

As your Whole Person Coach, I will help you find your own authenticity so you can live a life you thought was only possible in your dreams. This is not therapy – we won’t focus on the past or diagnose you based on an existing set of conditions. This is not consulting – I don’t provide advice or “do the work” for you. What I will do is create a confidential, judgment-free space for you to express who you are as you learn to feel at home in your own skin. We will go through some exercises together to help us both identify and understand the areas you’d like to work on together. I will remain curious with you, asking dozens of thoughtful questions, hearing you fully and completely as you unravel your own brilliance.

I will help you define your dream life and, most importantly, I will help you get there.

With love, light and gratitude,
Raychel

Life Coaching with Energy Psychology is a quality, research-based model of coaching that supports you in exploring and changing a wide range of issues. These include life direction clarity, stress reduction, mood regulation, and trauma healing. Clients report benefits in relationships, greater individuation-i.e. perspective through life’s challenges-as well as overall satisfaction.

Life Coaching with Energy Psychology strives for body-mind integration through mindfulness theory and discussion, and via modern Eastern trends.

It may include a chakra analysis of your subtle energy field, and/or astrological computations. Combined with the most current psychotherapeutic and neuroscience findings, the result is self-awareness, leading to more positive and healthy life choices.
For Carl Jung, (the energy of) yoga represented a rich storehouse of inner experience and of the individuation process in particular.
~ Sonu Shamdasani

I am a certified professional coach, with a master’s degree in psychotherapy. I specialize in life guidance, trauma repair and relational issues, and have been in private practice in the field of energy psychology since 1997. I have had extensive training in holistic coaching, as well as subtle anatomy therapy. My early career traces back to arts administration in New York City.

My accreditation includes the Coach Training World in Portland, OR, Southwestern College in Santa Fe, NM, Pratt Institute in NY, and Dawson College in Canada.

Your doubts and fears are holding you back from producing your artistic dream. Your audience awaits, and you are the one holding up the show. You are frustrated that your signature project still sits on the back burner, that you can’t seem to take those first steps to realizing it or can’t seem to sustain the momentum. You dance between that longing for your creativity to be seen, celebrated and cherished by others, and undermining yourself with doubt that you could be successful.

Your dreams want to be exercised and shared. The world is missing out on your gifts, because of these nagging thoughts and the indecision that they bring. You keep putting it off coming up with a million excuses: You don’t have the time. You don’t have the energy, the money or the support. You fear that if you start this project and fail that that would be worse than not starting it at all.

Don’t keep your audience waiting. It is time to give your project wings.

Let me help you bring that artistic dream to life. The world is waiting for your input. Take the first step by setting up an introductory coaching session to start living your dream.

Let me support you in making a plan to bring your project to life.

When I’m not coaching, I love to share the latest research about self-confidence building skills cabaret shows. Over the past two years I have created, performed in and produced 6 cabaret shows. I am currently writing a one-person play about a journey to confidence and living my own brilliance. It includes my struggles with valuing myself, binge watching Netflix, cookie addictions, avoidance shopping, accepting my emotions, believing I am worthy of my dreams and finding the courage and resources to follow them.

I also teach Zumba Fitness, give Portland Walking Tours and dance the Blues, Swing and Argentine Tango. I graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelors Degree in Sociology and minors in French and Gender Studies. I’ve worked for Adoption NW and NW Surrogacy law firms, Portland Women’s Crisis Line and a preschool for families with children at risk for abuse. I received training at Coach Training World in Portland, OR. I help struggling artists to take action steps to bring their creative projects to life. By building confidence in being their authentic self, they create a satisfying and financially sustainable career.

What are your creative dreams? I’d love to hear from you.
