An Introduction

Rachel Vogedes, MA, LPC

Rachel Mulder-Vogedes, MA, LPC

Clinical Director

 

I provide individual counseling and professional coaching in a warm, safe and supportive environment.  I believe in identifying your strengths and feel it is important to focus on “what is working” rather than dwelling on all that is “wrong” in your life.  I understand that therapy can be difficult and I will provide you with support, encouragement, insight, and guidance along the way.

 

 

I have been working for over 13 years in the field of counseling and consulting.  I trained at Rogers Memorial Hospital, a nationally recognized leader in eating disorder care. In addition to providing therapy in local private practices, I worked as part of an eating disorder treatment team at a local eating disorder clinic.  Valuing a collaborative approach to treatment, I work closely with dietitians and am committed to making appropriate referrals to psychiatrists and other medical doctors.

 

I am a certified life coach and business consultant.  My primary areas of focus have been on wellness, career exploration & enhancement, relationship and interpersonal skills, managing stress & burnout, grief recovery, and helping clients navigate through difficult life and work situations.

My career in private practice began after receiving a BA from Ripon College (Ripon, WI) and a Master's Degree in Counseling and Educational Psychology from Marquette University (Milwaukee, WI).

Self Awareness Coach

 

You cannot become who you were meant to be, by remaining who you are.

 

Emotions are gnarly. 

The expression often comes out of a surfer's mouth when something simultaneously spectacular and unexpected occurs. I think it’s the perfect way to describe emotions: spectacular and unexpected. 

 

Emotions remind me of ocean waves: unpredictable, wild, loud, revealing, and pure. There is no way you would catch me out in the open ocean without an instructor, so why try to surf your own emotional waves without one?

 

As a certified life coach and former educator, I will help you recognize, accept, explore, nurture, and surf your emotions. You will begin to flourish in unimaginable ways and live life with more happiness. My approach is straightforward, warm, and goal oriented, with a splash of humor.  

 

If you seek support while you explore the open waters of life, then I’m your gal.

I truly look forward to connecting with you and watching powerful change unfold. 

 

Sara is a Certified Medical Professional Life Coach.

Emotional Wellness Coach

 

As an Emotional Wellness Coach I meet with clients who are inspired to take a deeper dive into their personal growth journey.  The magic lies in my ability to notice patterns in a person’s thoughts, emotions, behaviors and life experiences.  The patterns are then explored in a way that empowers clients to further develop and utilize their own intuition.

 

One of the main tools used in our coaching partnership is the practice of curiosity without judgment.  My number one goal in our coaching session is for you to feel seen, heard and understood. Throughout my career, I’ve been given feedback that people naturally feel safe exploring their life experiences and emotions with me.  I am able to provide an encouraging and compassionate energy. 

 

Common topics explored in Emotional Wellness Coaching:

  • How to better understand and cope with your emotions

  • The journey of self/body love

  • Releasing unhelpful belief systems

  • How to reclaim your identity after having children

  • Parenting under challenging circumstances

 

In the past, I have provided clients with reflection notes through email summarizing the main points and including any practice work we create while in session.  Additionally, I pose questions that may be helpful to explore in between sessions.  To have a witness in your personal growth process is meaningful.  My purpose as an Emotional Wellness Coach is to hold space for your growth and to be that witness.
