From Jane- Mom of a 1 yr old

“Rachel is very proactive, approachable, and knowledgeable! We worked with her for about a year with our son through in-person classes, phone consultations, and virtual sessions. She offered personalized one-on-one assistance with strategies and ideas for sitting up, rolling over, crawling, walking, and more. She always check-in to see how our son was developing and if we had any other concerns. Her expertise, advice, and tips were always very helpful. At first, we were a bit concerned about our son’s slight delay in gross motor skills, but she always gave us confidence to be able to assist him and now we’re so proud that he has a strong set of fundamental skills that will help him as he continues to grow.”

From Jen- Soon to be first time mom

“Rachel’s infant massage class was wonderful! We practiced on dolls when I was 9 months pregnant. I learned a lot by emulating the strokes on a doll, and I’m feeling excited to try them on my soon to be newborn baby. I know first hand the benefits of healing touch from years of practicing massage on clients and receiving massage therapy. Taking these skills to my own baby feels that much more perfect and rewarding. Rachel is a patient and kind teacher and her years of experience in working with children and babies is evident in the knowledge she shares throughout the class. It was also helpful that she includes a reference book with the strokes to take home. I am looking forward to a follow up class with Rachel after the baby is here to help support baby, my partner and I in our transition in getting to know baby’s needs. I think massage time will be a very special bonding time for us. Thanks Rachel!”

From Rachael H.- Mom of twins, Colleague and Child Development Therapist

“I have known Rachel in a professional manner that grew into a lasting friendship. I was lucky to be guided by her throughout my career as a child developmental therapist and to witness daily her passion for children and families. She is bright, caring, and a natural giver. People adore her; especially my now 5 year old twins she helped to care for. I would highly recommend her for any developmental needs!”
