Hi! I’m Rakel


As a survivor of a toxic relationship, I understand how it feels to be mistreated by someone you love. It’s one of the most frightening and traumatic experiences a woman can face. And it’s hard to know what to do when it happens. 

For 14 years, I agonized over the complicated dilemma: Should I stay or should I go?  

Finally, I left. But my new reality was bittersweet: I was free— yet shattered. I faced a new struggle: How to put the pieces of my life back together?


What I learned

We rebuild our power with courage and single steps. And, most important, with help.  I discovered the value of having a coach—a guide to help me navigate the path forward.  And so I decided to stay true to myself. I ended up building a coaching practice of my own
and now I help women get the keys to transformation--rising strong and daring greatly. 

Robert Frost put it best: The only way out is through. 

I can help you drive through this!

Let's get you started!
