    For years I had been intrigued by life coaching, and was lucky to find Rahti sooner rather than later. I wasn't sure quite what I was looking for, other than assistance to be all that I knew I could be, and what I have gotten are tools to do just that. Rahti helps me find systems that work for ME in managing my life & personal business. She is 'on my team,' coaching me through and out of the nitty-gritties of procrastination, time management and gaining clarity with my finances. My quality of life, sense of self, productivity, and greater vision of my life's potential have expanded since working together.

    My first session with Rahti was pivotal! I was inspired. She was able to walk me through some steps to prioritize my goals and give me some tools to stay on track. I used these tools and referred to our notes as I focused on my projects.

    Some time ago I was temping and finding I had no time to develop my career as a solo-performer and educator, and today I am fully immersed in my creative life. With Rahti, I was able to create a plan for moving toward my career goals: I wanted to find a way to live as a teacher, solo performer and actor...and today, that is exactly what I do. I believe Rahti's guidance put me on the right path; I highly recommend her!

    Having just graduated college, I found myself pulled in every direction. My representation, my family, my friends, and especially I had high expectations for my future. I didn’t know where to start—which direction would bring me the quickest success? It was overwhelming to see the bar raised so high, and to feel so empty. However, after speaking with Rahti, I realized that I was looking for confidence within these expectations rather than within myself. So we did some spring-cleaning—life maintenance—focused on setting smaller goals more within my control. And now I find myself excited by all of the directions I am being pulled, seeing each as a great opportunity rather than just another chance for failure. I learned not to be hasty in trying to control where my life is going, but rather to set tangible goals towards my path most desired. It is in this advice that I have found myself a more focused and indeed a happier artist.

    Working with Rahti has finally changed my approach to doing my artwork. Rahti is always able to pull from her vast resources of knowledge--giving guidance, encouragement, and gentle admonitions if necessary.

    My first session with Rahti was pivotal! I was inspired. She was able to walk me through some steps to prioritize my goals and give me some tools to stay on track. I used these tools and referred to our notes as I focused on my projects. Rahti never fails to inspire and challenge me.
    She has a big "bag of tricks" that she uses to challenge and motivate me. That, plus Rahti's funny and zesty personality, means there is never a dull moment and always lots of good stuff to take home and apply between sessions. Thanks to Rahti's coaching I am more directed, more confident, and have the benefit of support of other creative women with similar issues to mine. I have finally finished projects. I rented studio space and have gone there more often and with more commitment than I would have without Rahti's coaching. I highly recommend her services.

    At a very difficult moment in my life Rahti helped me to get organized, prioritize, reinvest myself in my work and make things move forward in my field. I really appreciate Rahti’s careful and generous guidance. She knows how to get to the center of it.

    Rahti has the rare skill of being able to hear what you are really saying. She guided me as I sorted through the many ideas I had regarding my professional life and ultimately led me to the nugget. Along the way, she helped me work through some heavy career- and life-related issues, setting me off with a clear head to enthusiastically pursue my new career. I can't thank her enough.

    Rahti has not only helped me understand the importance of deadlines, she's helped me meet them! Rahti manages to be positive without being Pollyanna - she is funny, insightful and inspiring. She has the ability to help you value and believe in yourself, even when you’re feeling your least creative. Thanks to Rahti, I've finished lots of small projects and have finally started writing a novel. Most importantly, since working with Rahti, I've started writing consistently.


  • from Mary on 21 Jun 2013

    When I started the coaching program, I was unable to focus on completing a rough draft of my novel. Checking in weekly with coach Rahti helped me prioritize what was most important to me and my writing. She also helped me by suggesting different strategies to realize my goal. End result? I have completed my rough draft and am confident my next steps will be supported by everything I have learned during the coaching process.

    I have been able to isolate and focus in on what is needed to approach my music with clarity. Helping to create the space and get back to the creative task at hand. A difficult undertaking when one becomes overwhelmed with the necessities of daily life. Rahti has helped me to become more directed, accountable and aware so I can fulfill the creative obligation I have with myself. No easy task. I recommend her to anyone who has the need to reclaim his or her creative self. Her methods are practical and transformational simultaneously.
