Rachel Thalmann

Certified Professional Coach & Writer

I help people get out of their own way with clarity and validation in this awkward stage between birth and death.

After my dad’s stage four pancreatic cancer diagnosis, I experienced a year of transformation. Sitting in the living presence of my dying dad gave me new insights. I began to live with peace and purpose and was thankful I had someone to challenge me––to coach me––to experience life in a new way.

I believe in coaching. I would be honored (and excited!) to coach you.

My Coaching Plan:

  1. Clarify with you what you want

  2. Identify “the perfect system” you’ve created (knowing or unknowingly)

  3. Modify thoughts, beliefs, and actions that hold you back and get really smart about emotions

  4. Continually check back in on your personal, professional, (and spiritual) goals/growth

My Client Criteria:

  • You are committed!

  • You enjoy challenge – bringing one and accepting one.

  • You are willing to learn, stretch, and grow.

I’m excited for you to have this opportunity and to experience the difference it’s going to make in your life!

Here are just a few client successes that can also be yours:

  • Build your confidence; bring self-doubt to the surface and slay it

  • Make a big, important and/or difficult decision with peace & clarity

  • Increase emotional intelligence and wellbeing 

  • Set healthy boundaries for yourself

  • Find your written and/or spoken voice

  • Improve your relationships (and conversations)

My Promise: I promise to listen carefully, remain neutral, ask powerful questions, and uphold confidentiality according to the ICF (International Coaching Federation) standards.

I contacted Rachel because I did not feel as though I was working to my potential, though I could not explain why. The time I spent with her as my leadership coach led me down a path of great self-reflection and the discovery that I was holding myself back by allowing others too much control over my feelings and reactions to situations. This time has proven invaluable to me both personally and professionally. With Rachel’s help, I have taken back that control and approach everything from a very different perspective—and I am a happier, more effective leader for it.

Through my leadership coaching I found peace. I realized how at peace my life had become in just a few short eye-opening sessions. I have been through a lot of leadership trainings, but nothing helped me look inward and make positive changes to the way I respond to the world around me until this.

Coaching with Rachel changed my self-awareness, mindset and confidence level as a leader for my team and in my personal life! It was a break through for me to be able to shift my awareness on why I think and feel the way I do. I am able now to RISE UP and dig deep within myself to find MORE in each moment!
