A note from Sarah ​

I know what it feels like to have a life filled with stress, anxiety, and depression. There was a time when I didn't understand the power that was within me and spent years blaming others for my pain.  During my first marriage, which lasted 18 years, I found myself caught up in so many lies, not only from my spouse but from my own thoughts and thinking. I believed I wasn't good enough and I was constantly talking down to myself, not believing in who I was or what I had to offer.  I lived in my head and lived with so much pain and disappointment for many years.  Until one day, something happened that changed the direction of my life forever.  

After a very stressful day at work, I found myself feeling the weight of my situation.  I was working three jobs, taking care of my five children, and trying to hold myself together as my marriage was falling apart.  I felt so much heaviness weighing down on me, and I knew I had to pull it together before I got to work. 


As I sat in my car, ready to drive to work, I grabbed a hold of my steering wheel and screamed out as loud as I could:   "I am F*KING AMAZING!!!" 

It felt so good. So I screamed it again.  And then I screamed it again.  And all of a sudden, I felt this beautiful loving energy sweep over me, and I actually felt amazing.  So I continued talking myself up for the rest of the drive to work.


I started telling myself how amazing, how patient, and hardworking I was.  I told myself that I owned my mistakes, and I was genuine.  I went through a list of affirmations. And by the time I got to work, I felt like I could do anything.  I walked into work with my head held high and I had one of the best nights at work that I had ever had.  

I started doing this every day on my 10-minute drive to work, and my entire life turned around.  

I realized through that experience, that I really was amazing.  That I needed to know it and believe it, for myself.  

And even more so, I needed to be it.


I began showing up to everything I did, believing I was F*king amazing.  And my life changed.  I began my journey of healing from years of trauma and pain.  I began to own my life.  I took control and stopped placing the blame on others.  And as I started to heal, my desire to help others heal, grew stronger.  I started looking for ways to help co-workers believe in themselves.  I kept seeing the same patterns from others.  

Pain, anxiety, stress, and the belief that they were not good enough.   

I began coaching kids at the local schools.  I wanted to help everyone I could.


My path led me to an NLP practitioner, who gave me the tools I needed to take my own healing to the next level.  And as I continued to grow stronger, I knew that my life would be spent helping others find their truth, through the love and power within themselves. For that is what I found within me.  

It all started by telling myself that I was amazing.  I no longer felt the need to hear it from others.  I already knew it for myself.  


I love people.  I know that life brings each of us so many different experiences. With those experiences come many different emotions, which are not always easy to process.  We are here to learn and grow through them, and from them.  And I want to help you in that beautiful journey of discovering that beauty, strength, and love within you. 


My Philosophy


You are capable of so much greatness.  It is already within you. 

My greatest desire is to help you to find it.    

Each of us was born with a beautiful light inside.  Over time, through the difficult life events, and through the perceptions, we have had of these events, our inner light and truth may have been pushed to the side, out of sight, out of mind.  


Through a combination of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Mindfulness and 

transformational tools, I will help you become equipped to change your life around.

To be able to breathe more deeply, with calmness, and clarity.

To find a greater sense of peace and purpose.  

To find a sense of self-worth and healing.  

To love yourself more fully.  

To have a clear sense of who you are, what you want in life.

To find your inner light and find ways to let it shine.
