True Stories from Real People...
It has been the great honor and privilege of my life to partner with the very special people who have trusted me and shared with me their darkest fears, their most difficult challenges, and their heart’s desires. Here are their stories in their own words.
This is Matt…
When I met Rebecca, I was in a love relationship that wasn’t working, had some long-term friendships that I had outgrown, and a relationship with my boss that was strained by lack of trust. So, I was literally going through the motions of being “sort of” successful, but, in my heart, I knew there was something missing. I was struggling to put my finger on what was happening inside me and had no clue how to get myself centered and moving forward. Truth be told, I was mildly depressed and didn’t even know it.
I was just garbled up in my mind and hadn’t developed the practice of creating space—I wasn’t able to think. Rebecca introduced me to spirituality, mindfulness, and other modalities that have helped me so much. She helped me be more mindful of how I structure my day and my organizational skills have improved greatly. From a personal level, my personal wellbeing has improved dramatically. I am in a wonderful healthy relationship with a person who is a great fit for me, I have pruned the friends who were not adding anything to my life, and my professional life is now amazing (including a much better relationship with my boss). There’s a lot more awareness that I carry now about how I feel, what I’m thinking, and it’s helped me get in a much better place mentally, professionally, physically.
You meet people for a reason, a season, or a lifetime, and I feel this could be a lifetime relationship. Rebecca has been a very influential person in my life. I just turned 50 this year and there is still so much more to explore and do. There’s a reason we met at this time in my life, and I am so grateful it was now.

I have had the opportunity to work with Rebecca in both one-on-one and group sessions. I was having difficulty with self-esteem issues related to negative experiences as a child. I had tried to work through this very debilitating situation with therapy over the years to no avail. When I decided to work with Rebecca, I began to make steady progress in claiming my own self-worth. Her approach is deep and powerful and really gets to the core limiting beliefs and lifelong patterns that had been literally sucking the life out of me.
I have seen shifts in an important relationship with a significant family member because of how I am showing up. The dynamics of the relationship have softened, creating a greater sense of ease. This process has undoubtedly been the catalyst for that. I am choosing to spend time with people who “get” and appreciate me, rather than in relationships that are toxic. I am an artist, and I was feeling my inner creative spirit dimming. I am beginning to paint again and am feeling hopeful and optimistic about the future for the first time in a long while.
I can always count on my time with Rebecca to be nurturing, energizing, and grounding—leaving me in a calmer and happier place. Rebecca's sessions never fail to shift my thoughts, elevate my spirits, and raise my vibration. I have experienced gentle but powerful releases of carried stress and emotional heaviness as well as gained focused clarity through the Mind Connector process, which has allowed me to become more of a creative force in my life. Rebecca deeply cares about her clients and is lovingly present as a guide, cheerleader, confidant, and friend. This is the best thing I’ve done for myself in a decade.
This is Blake...
I grew up the child of a larger than life, (A.K.A. narcissistic), father who alternately loved me and reminded me I would never measure up to him. He was the sun in our family and everyone else was expected to revolve around him. As a result, I have spent much of my life pleasing others, not setting boundaries, or asking for what I need, and even in my sixth decade continuing to seek the approval of my father.
When I started coaching with Rebecca, I had been promoted into a leadership position in a Fortune 500 company and started making more money than I had dared dream possible in my life. In spite of the positive feedback from my boss and my team, I had a significant Impostor Syndrome going and second-guessed myself as I made every new decision. I was actually considering asking my boss to transfer me back to my “safe” previous position, my anxiety level was so high.
Through my work with Rebecca, I have been able to literally rewire my brain in many positive ways. I am now much calmer, more confident, and enjoying being a leader who leads with “loving authenticity.” We have looked at long held limiting beliefs and reframed them, and, to my surprise, my beliefs about my own inadequacies are completely different now. Best of all, this “reboot” has enabled me to see that my father’s behavior has nothing to do with me. I am stepping into my own in ways I never thought possible. I look forward to the growth and challenge of being a confident leader for my team and my organization. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to work with Rebecca.
This is Susan...
When Rebecca and I started working together I was in a huge transition in my life. I was moving from my home of 20+ years to another part of the country, going through a painful divorce, and having retired from a successful career as a wealth manager, I was seeking my next entrepreneurial adventure. I was literally untethered. With Rebecca’s calm presence and innovative approach, I was able to quickly release all the fear and uncertainty I felt and create a vision for my new life. I don’t believe that would have been possible without the neural reprogramming we did. It was not only effective, but easy and fast compared to other approaches I have tried.
I am happy to say that I now live in a beautiful seaside community near family and have begun to forge new relationships. I am even playing in a bell choir—something I have always wanted to do. Professionally I am excited about the new venture I have launched and have focus and direction. Best of all, I can say that the last third of my life looks like it very well be the best third of my life. I live every day in optimism and gratitude.
I am grateful to Rebecca for her encouragement, her sense of humor and especially her willingness to talk "straight" to me about important issues. Her insights and assistance in clarifying my goals and what is important to me have been so meaningful to me. With her help, I have grown as a person and left behind baggage that was weighing me down. I am looking forward to 2021 as a year of continued growth and success with her help.
This is Alex...
While I have known and worked with Rebecca for many years, I had never worked with her formally as my coach. When I encountered a gnarly issue with a close family member, I decided to try Rebecca’s Mind Connector Coaching. Wow! Talk about a great decision! In just a few sessions I was able to come to a deep level of peace and acceptance regarding the almost constant friction I had been feeling in the relationship. And, of course, the result is that the relationship has changed for the better significantly. I am so much more compassionate and accepting toward this very important person in my life. And so much more present and centered without all the negative internal chatter. And now I feel equipped to deal positively and quickly with the inevitable conflicts that arise in close personal relationships. And I didn’t have to go to therapy! Yay!
I just want to say “Thank You” to Rebecca! The weekly sessions with her this year (2020) have been a lifeline for me. I feel clearer, calmer, and have been able to navigate the stresses of this year with greater ease and peace of mind. Her Mind Connector approach and skill in helping me find my unconscious limiting beliefs and blocks and then reframe them is uncanny. I am literally thinking new thoughts. Rebecca’s grasp of the latest research in neuroscience and how to make it practical for lasting change is very powerful! Can’t wait to see what our work together will help me to create in 2021!

When I met Rebecca, I was struggling with lifelong issues related to lack of ability to set and hold boundaries in my personal and professional life. This pattern had begun to affect me in emotional ways, as well as physically. I had gained weight and couldn’t seem to even want to do anything about it. Using the most recent research from neuroscience, Rebecca helped me dismantle limiting beliefs and clear painful childhood memories one by one. The process enabled us to find and release events and feelings that had been dormant for years, and that had been, unbeknownst to me, disempowering me to take action. Rebecca’s approach is based on science and her 32 years of experience and helps people deeply experience integration of body, mind, and spirit.
I now can speak my truth, letting those around me know clearly what I want and need. I feel respected and supported by the people in my life and have a newfound sense of self-respect. I have even lost the weight I was carrying and feel healthy and free. This has been life changing for me!
My experience with Rebecca's work has been extraordinary. She has a way of combining practices that seem very practical and highly structured with ones that are incredibly insightful and almost mystical. Her non-judgmental manner and positive encouragement are essential when doing the deep inner work that her approach offers. The work is steady and imperceptible until all at once I found myself in a very different place in regard to some challenging life changes I have sought for a very long time. She is a true professional who I respect and admire as she does her own work so she can be both qualified and fully present to guide others.
