Rachel Nusbaum of Orchid Story
At 18 weeks pregnant with my second child, I was thrust unwillingly into the dizzying world of pediatric cardiology. We were faced with enormous life or death decisions about the tiny being inside of me, his heart the size of grape.
These are our life stories. As a genetic counselor for over a decade, I’ve sat across from hundreds of women sharing their health struggle. And, I’ve walked this road myself. The data, the test result, the experts. They matter. But the story - and the way we weave it into our identity, our core - is everything.
I believe that we find connection and meaning by exploring these stories. Finding meaning in our losses and challenges helps us make sense of our lives and ourselves. What I do is take you on a life story journey where together we work on tangible ways to find a place for your story to become a healthier part of your identity.
By working with me you will gain newfound head space, an energetic shift topped off with a healthy dose of self-compassion. I’m an excellent listener who is intuitive and honest. I wear my heart on my sleeve.
Orchid Story is built on the belief that you can make the choice to write the ending to your story.
