Private Aligned Strategy Intensives

Part strategic planning, part deep dive vision exploration. Everything your soul needs to come back to creative clarity — and to get things done.

If you feel overwhelmed, burned out, and a little isolated on “CEO Island”…

… working harder, hiring more team, or finding a new guru with a “magic formula” to follow is not going to solve your problems.

You need to slow down to speed up.

As CEO, your gift for hustling and getting things done can be an asset and an obstacle.

Tell me if any of this sounds familiar:


When there’s a problem in your business, your instinct is to “just” work harder to solve it. But not every issue — especially long-term, deeply rooted challenges — can be resolved with more sweat.


You might struggle to take time away from your desk, or untangle yourself from the day-to-day of your business so you can think clearly, and see the big picture.


When you do take time off, you might still spend it working, because having space for self care and daydreams gets your creative juices flowing.


Despite all your systems and habits, life and work feel chaotic, and you wish you could step out of “react mode” & into the place of quiet focus that sparks your best work and growth.


You value your team, but you know they’re invested in protecting their interests (who wouldn’t be?) — so when it’s time to make hard decisions, you feel lonely at the top.

There’s no shame in it and you’re not alone. These are obstacles every leader struggles with.

And just like every leader, you have a choice to continue doing things the way you’ve always done them…

… secretly hoping that things will change on their own.
… secretly fearing that if you make a change it will all come crashing down.
… secretly knowing that if you keep going this way you’ll reach your breaking point before long.

Or you can choose a better option.



An option where you acknowledge the magic that happens and the impact you have when you’re clear, connected and firing on all cylinders.


One where you honor your vision and your values, what you’ve created and what you will create in the future.


An option that allows you to step into your fullest leadership capacity.

It’s time to press pause. Get present. And create a strategy that’s in alignment with your long term vision & goals.

It’s time for your:

Private Aligned Strategy Intensive

Part strategic planning, part deep dive vision exploration. Everything your soul needs to come back to creative clarity — and to get things done.


What if you could:


Feel more energetically aligned with the work you do in the world?


Stop struggling with everyday “busy work” that keeps your time occupied and your energy zapped?


Focus more on the big picture vision for your business & the impact you want to have in the world?


Create the space you need to grow your business without sacrificing other areas of your life?


Free up 10 to 20 hours per month (or more) of your time to focus on what’s most important to you – free time, family, or your next business endeavor?

What would that be worth to you?

Most business coaches and self-proclaimed “gurus” will teach you their “secret success formula” with the idea that if you do what they did, you’ll get where they’ve gotten.

News flash: You’re not them.

You likely have different values, a different vision, a different life experience.

Maybe they’re happy to hustle day & night while what you crave is time with your family, or time alone.

Maybe they play fast and loose with their money and you’re a little more conservative when it comes to investing. Or maybe the opposite is true.

Maybe their “magic formula” looks good on paper, but something about it just doesn’t feel quite right.

If there’s one thing I know for certain it’s this:

There’s no magic formula.

What works for one person – for one business – does not work for all. The critical factor in your success or your failure (however you define that) is whether or not your day-to-day decisions are in alignment with what you value most in the world, with how you want to feel, with what you want to contribute.

When you trust yourself to decide what’s best for you, you take back your power, and you become unstoppable.

You might be thinking…

“But I don’t know everything. That’s why we hire experts, right?”

Absolutely. But just because someone has expertise, doesn’t mean everything they say and do is a good fit for you. Leaders listen. Then they take what fits and leave the rest. In order to make empowered decisions you have to know what’s important to you. That’s where our work begins.

“I don’t have time to step back and get perspective.”

Actually, you don’t have time not to. If you’re keeping yourself busy by keeping the ship upright, and you never take the time to look out on the horizon (or down in the belly), then you’ll always be in hustle mode. You’ll always be reacting to what’s popping up in front of you, and the eternal game of whack-a-mole will never end. You have to slow down and get perspective if you want to get ahead.

“You know what they say about ‘best laid plans’… Why even bother?”

Aligned Strategy isn’t about creating rigid plans and sticking to them no matter what. It’s about getting clear on what works for you and learning to trust your own decision making process so that as things go awry (because you know they will), you’re able to pivot without missing a beat.

“What happens if my vision or my goals change?”

The growth process is never ending. Increased levels of clarity and confidence create new levels of opportunity. When you lay a solid foundation and you create the space and time to work in your highest capacity, you’ll be able to shift and grow your vision and goals with ease and grace. 

Full disclosure: This experience is not for everyone.

This level of private, personalized mentoring is an investment of time, love, and attention on your part and mine. I’m committed to only working with those creative CEOs who are a perfect fit.


you + me = perfect fit, IF:

You’ve been hustling in your business for too long,

and it doesn’t seem to be getting any easier. You keep thinking “There has to be a better way.”

Your greatest desire is to contribute to the world in a meaningful way

and while you likely do that already, you need a sustainable way to maintain momentum.

You believe in your heart of hearts

that you have the power to determine your own circumstances — but you’re stuck in the chaos of “reaction mode.”

You’re comfortable doing the deep work,

and are open & receptive to a new perspective that may require you to grow and change to create what you desire.

Your favorite mentors and teachers share a direct, no nonsense, tell it like it is approach

wrapped up in a little woo and delivered with love (‘cause that’s how I roll).

You’re ready to co-create your aligned business and life

with support and guidance from a mentor who is fully invested in your success.

you + me = not so much, IF:

You prefer to complain, place blame and focus on the negative.

You’d rather focus on the drama of why “that won’t work” or how you “tried that once” than on new perspectives and possibilities.

You’re looking for a magic bullet or “band-aid” solution to a systemic issue.

Your ego and emotions need to be handled with kid gloves.

You love to talk about ideas but rarely take action.

Participating in this work would cause excessive financial strain.

Before Rachel I’d been struggling with physical illness for months. I was in bed more than I was working and even landed myself in the hospital… stressed, overwhelmed, and confused about what to do next. My body was trying to tell me what my brain refused to acknowledge—I was done. Working with Rachel has completely shifted my life! I now understand more fully what I really want—joy, fulfillment, adventure and freedom. Decision making has become easier and faster. I’m less stressed because I’m only choosing into experiences that align with my deepest desires. And my discernment between when to rest and when to press has become fine-tuned.

Needless to say, I am happy. I am at peace. And I haven’t been sick since Rachel opened up my heart and helped me see I was worth creating a life and business I loved.

Here’s how the Private Aligned Strategy Intensive works:

You’ll begin by stepping away from the grind, so you can disconnect from your daily distractions.

You’ll get settled in, grab a mug of your favorite beverage, and set a clear intention for our time together.

We’ll sit down together, and I’ll use my 20+ years of holistic strategic experience to dive deep into your business & life.

You’ll gain clarity on what’s working, what’s not, and what exactly you want to be experiencing, both in and out of the office.

We’ll review your values, your vision, and your goals, and then we’ll explore strategies to make the changes you’re ready to make.

What do you most desire? What do you need in your business and life right now? What kind of resources and support are required to get there?

Together we will comb through obstacles – both internal and external – discussing any feedback and insights I have for you.

We’ll revisit and refine as we go to make sure you have a solid plan in place for how you’ll integrate this vision into your life and business.

Finally, you’ll go on your way — relaxed, at ease and with a clear plan to get you where you want to be in a way that feels really, really good.

Your Private Aligned Strategy Intensive Includes:

A Full Day of Aligned Strategic Planning (6 hours)

It’s time to slow down so you can speed up.
