Reach Out. Reveal. Restore. Renew.
Scottsdale Coaching was founded by Rachel Curry, trauma-informed wellness coach and BSP practitioner. We are passionate about watching clients experience deepened peace of mind and increased joy. This is achieved with education, mindfulness, and authentic connection. Wellness coaching is designed to help clients find relief from unwanted symptoms and provide hope to those trapped in negative patterns.
We believe the relationship between coach and client is an equal partnership. Our goal is to help you revive your inner strengths by removing the blocks that prevent you from creating the life you desire. By combining modern approaches like Brainspotting with compassionate conversation, clients are able to release pain and forge a path toward long-term change. Let’s restore your sense of self-reliance so you don’t feel dependent on mental health professionals forever.
By providing a supportive space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a coaching plan that meets your needs, we will walk with you from beginning to end. Whether you’re experiencing grief from the loss of a loved one, overwhelming stress from a transition at work, or the pain of chronic negative self-talk, know you’re not alone. Together, we can face the obstacles in your path at a pace that’s right for you. Remember: You belong. You matter. Your journey is important.
Brainspotting (BSP) uses the client’s visual field to help the brain process and release emotional and physical pain. It was developed by EMDR therapist David Grand in 2003 and is most commonly used for PTSD and developmental trauma. Brainspotting is renown for healing somatic memories stored in the midbrain and regulating the nervous system. Brainspotting is safe and used by many mental wellness professionals, including NLP practitioners and spiritual advisors.
Artistic Processing uses the creative mind to express emotions, increase self-esteem, and reduce anxiety. Traditional art therapy can help clients address psychological dissonance — the tension that result from unresolved ideas, desires, or needs. One of the goals of coaching with Artistic Processing is to strengthen coping skills and imprint affirming information. It solidifies new insights by engaging both sides of the brain, helping clients move forward in their journey toward health.
Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a therapeutic model that identifies different parts within each of us. Scottsdale Coaching uses methods inspired by IFS to help coach clients through difficult life-transitions. Often times, our parts are in conflict with each other. For example, if someone cancels your shift at work, one part of you might feel happy about the day off, but another part might feel anxious about losing money. Many people suffer from trying to avoid, numb, or escape unwanted parts of themselves. IFS coaching helps clients identify their inner-resources – such as courage, creativity, and compassion – so they can mindfully embody and respect all the subparts that make them unique. This results in mental harmony and emotional balance.
Working with Rachel has saved my marriage and given me the tools I need to live courageously. I thought I was broken because of my history of complex trauma and addiction. Rachel was one of the first people who understood and helped me feel seen and capable.
—Darylle G., Phoenix
I went to Rachel because I felt stuck in a difficult relationship. After my second session, I learned about the negative beliefs that were holding me back. Seeing Rachel helped me face my past and make positive changes.
—Shawn P., Scottsdale
Rachel has been instrumental in my recovery. Through our work together, I began to love and accept myself. I can now handle life on life's terms. After years of therapy, I started losing hope that I could really change, but Rachel's humor and insight created space for a real transformation in my life.
—Dylan M., Phoenix
A friend recommended I see someone about the panic and heaviness I felt in my chest. I met with Rachel for coaching and we used Brainspotting. Not only did this relieve the pain in my chest, it also improved my meditation practice. I feel more like myself again.
—Connor Z., Paradise Valley
I used to have strong social anxiety, but Rachel made me feel comfortable and welcome. She really listened to me. We used artistic activities and Brainspotting over a number of weeks and my social anxiety is almost gone.
