Rachel Cook

Nutrition & Mindfulness Support

Rachel brings 15 years of nutrition self-study and 4 years of lived experience as a  Neurodivergent parent to Lisa Hicks Coaching. She is also a certified health coach and trauma-informed, Registered Yoga Teacher who uses her extensive training to create “safe container” for her clients and those around her. A battle with depression during college led her to seek healing on her own and discover solutions to health problems that eluded Western medicine practitioners. Along the way, she adopted a yoga practice, received an ADHD diagnosis and fostered an enduring passion for plant-based nutrition. 

Amidst several years of dedicated self-exploration and unexpected life shifts—marked by the arrival of her two children during the pandemic—Rachel adapted her skills to navigate the challenges of parenting while managing her own big feelings and a seemingly constant need for innovation in the kitchen. Her relentless curiosity about nutrition and intentional eating drives her to get creative during mealtimes, while being supported by her expertise in breathwork and mindfulness, especially in high-stress parenting moments.

Navigating her own personal struggles with self-regulation and feeding her family has Rachel fired up about helping neurodiverse folks during similar sticky seasons of life. She is passionate about guiding her clients to use tiny moments as inspiration for something great. Explore Rachel's personalized coaching by scheduling a discovery call or join her vibrant community to embark on a journey of growth and support!
