About this pro

Dear Survivor,

As a survivor of abuse myself, one thing I know is that it can feel like you are stuck in a broken time machine - one that won't bring you forward, but just keeps taking you back to the past. 

There have been times when my thoughts would antagonize me - so many moments when my life felt like it was being taken over against all attempts at normalcy and control. 

Can you relate? 

If so, I'm here to help you break free from the the torturous aftermath of sexual abuse. I want to help you repair the damage and pick up the pieces. After all, you deserve to feel in charge of your life again! 

I know what it's like to spend years and years struggling as a result of abuse. Back in 2007, I said, "Enough is enough!" and turned all of my time, energy, and attention towards finding a way out of the pain from the past and into the life I really wanted. 

What I discovered has been the missing piece for both me and my clients - it all starts with our brain. 

I am so excited to share with you what my clients are calling THE ROADMAP to finally feeling in charge of their lives, understanding themselves for the first time EVER, and putting an end to the roller coaster of pain that results from sexual abuse. 


With hope, 

Rachel

FAQs


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Rachel Grant is the owner and founder of Rachel Grant Coaching and is a Sexual Abuse Recovery Coach. She is also the author of Beyond Surviving: The Final Stage in Recovery from Sexual Abuse

She brings to the table a passionate belief that her clients do not have to remain trapped or confronted daily by the thoughts or behaviors that result from abuse. Through her own journey of recovery from sexual abuse, she has gained insight and understanding about what it takes to overcome abuse. This makes it possible for her to relate to and appreciate your struggles intimately. 

Based on her desire to foster community, intimacy, and connection, she has dedicated much of her time to understanding relationships and communication and how they are impacted by abuse. For her, how we are relating to others is crucial to improving the overall quality of our lives. In addition to the lessons she's learned along the way, she has attended various lectures and trainings to further hone her skills. 

Her program, Beyond Surviving, has been specifically designed to change the way we think about and heal from abuse. Based on her educational training, study of neuroscience, and lessons learned from her own journey, she has successfully used this program since 2007 to help her clients break free from the past and move on with their lives. 

She holds an M.A. in Counseling Psychology. She provides a compassionate and challenging approach for her clients while using coaching as opposed to therapeutic models. She is also a member of San Francisco Coaches and CSA Survivor Force.


How did you get started in this business?

I want to put a stop to survivors of abuse feeling broken, unfixable and absolutely frustrated because it seems nothing they do is helping. Honestly, it really pisses me off when survivors are not able to have the lives and relationships they deserve. Whenever I hear stories of survivors giving up, falling deeper and deeper into despair, or worse, being further traumatized by people who are supposed to help, I get so upset. It also reminds me of my past and how excruciating life was for twenty plus years. 

I was definitely convinced that there was no way out of the pain, constant instability, and feeling of worthlessness. It sucked, but I found a way out and I would love to support you in doing that as well. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

Men, Women, LGTBQ+


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
I want to encourage you to think of this as you "hiring" rather than finding a provider, and therefore you get to do the interview before you begin working with them.
Some questions to ask:
- What experience do you have working with survivors? What results have you seen your clients have?
- Do you have a clear plan for how you will guide me in healing from abuse?
- What training outside of your degree program(s) have you done in the areas of PTSD and trauma (if they say none, do not work with them).
- What therapeutic modalities do you use? (if they say anything wishy-washy or "I do a bit of everything" - get out of there.)
If the provider is using EMDR, ask about their understanding of the use of EMDR for treating singular traumas versus whole trauma. If they say anything like, “EMDR can be used to deal with the trauma globally” - get out of there. EMDR should only be used to look at singular instances of trauma.
