“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.”  – Jennifer F., Marketing Writer


“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. She guides you with nuts and bolts-advise like having a family “business” meeting to more nurturing spirit-supporting tools. Every pearl of wisdom is tailored to each specific person though most advise is eagerly embraced by all the participants. I cant stress enough how important it is to have a community of folks who are struggling with common difficulties and are able to support and encourage one another. Having this group, with Rahti as our coach–rah rah! has meant making real strides in staying on track with my work.”– Mari, Artist/Illustrator mari107@aol.com

“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.

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.” – Jocelyn, Writer joc1400@yahoo.com


“A year and a half 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 guidence put me on the right path; I highly recommend her!” – Paul Ricciardi, solo performer/actor/teacher pgricciardi@yahoo.com

“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.” – Julianne Klopotic, Violinist/Performer/Composer JulianneViolin@aol.com


“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.  Consequently, I had a solo show in The Netherlands which then snowballed into other shows.  I really appreciate Rahti’s careful and generous guidance.  She knows how to get to the center of it.” – Caterina Verde Visual Artisttankhouse


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. – Mary Sternbach, Writer


“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. ” – Devin Norik, Actor
