“We searched for a premarital counselor in sync with people, nature, and the greater spirit. Sarah has helped us realize the depth of love we share. We are more compassionate, present minded, and forward thinking. We learned the value of big and small community, and we couldn’t be better prepared for marriage.
We believe Sarah is servicing the world through her calling to bring couples and communities together in companionship and celebration, and we can’t recommend her more highly.”
Taylor and Kimi
“I am so grateful for everything that I have, for everything I've had, and for the person I'm becoming. I have you to thank for a gigantic portion of that. You've really helped me hone in on a lot of very wonderful skills that have helped me become more patient and kind to myself. This has led me to be a better wife, friend, and business person. I'm still a work in progress and I have more work to do in the future, but I'm always trying to evolve and be better in my daily life. So thank you for sharing all of your gifts with me and for guiding me through the darker times. You've set me on the right track where I'm achieving goals in work and in life that I'd never imagined I'd reach. You and the work that you do is incredible. I can't thank you enough Sarah, seriously.”
"Working with you has completely transformed our relationship. You are a gifted coach and have been so on point with knowing how to support us! We are communicating better than ever, aware of our patterns, and able to work through a fight MUCH more quickly. I now realize that our disagreements have gifts! You have made a big difference for us. Your coaching has taught me how to communicate my truth through conversations that are gentle, kind, loving and affirming; and yet I am making my point, taking care of myself, and not being a doormat! What I have learned from you is just fantastic. We would NOT be where we are today without the sessions we've had with you, Sarah. You got what was going on and you saved us. You really did. I just can't thank you enough."
Anne Marie and Skip
"We met with Sarah three times before our wedding as a way to set aside time to discuss issues in our relationship about which we were contemplating. This having been the first time either of us had worked with a coach, we were both nervous. Sarah recognized that immediately and was able to frame an atmosphere that helped us relax and share freely. Her skill that first session allowed us to approach the next two sessions with excitement and comfort. Sarah balanced sharing personal experience, to help us feel like she understood from where we were coming, with skill of keeping sessions focused on us and our needs. She was kind, warm and also allowed us the space to laugh. We truly enjoyed the experience working with Sarah and would like to figure out a way to make space in our lives for continued coaching."
Rachel and Shawn
"Our time with Sarah has been absolutely eye opening. Sarah has given us the space needed to thoughtfully reflect on the relationships we have with others, and with ourselves. By the end of only a few sessions, we took a step back and saw how far we had come. We can say confidently that with Sarah's help we have greatly improved our ability to communicate with ourselves, each other and the people surrounding us."
Aaron and Dayna
"I am so grateful for your kindred companionship and your buoyant, bright, playful, super-loving energy and deeply feeling, caring presence. Your profound somatic intelligence has been an inspiration, affirmation and support to me. Your reflections and willingness to challenge me-- to gently prod and compassionately call me out have been invaluable. Thank you so much for being a bright force for regenerative society and making me a better person in just knowing you."
Karta Elise Hassler
"My past tendency was to see darkness or negativity-- always noticing what was wrong in things. Sarah helped transform my viewpoint into one of light and positivity. To recognize and learn from patterns in my thoughts and actions. After working with Sarah, I now have an ability to understand my challenges as gifts that have something to teach me. This has fostered a strong sense of self-love and confidence, and now in the world I'm finding light everywhere I look."
"Sarah's perspective on life has changed me for the better. She is clear, open-minded and approachable. I am able to go to Sarah with any major questions or issues in my life, and as a team, we are able to work through it. After every conversation with her I am left feeling calm, determined, and ready to face the world! She's taught me to live in the present, to never take anything for granted, and to always love and appreciate myself. It is because of Sarah I feel rejuvenated and alive. She's an excellent coach and and an even better friend."
"It has been such an amazing experience to work with Sarah. She has a unique ability to reflect back to me aspects of myself I can overlook. In our conversations, she would pull out something that I had said, almost unconsciously, and hold it up for me to see. Always in the form of a question that made me stop and go, "Woah, did I say that? What did I mean by that?" She was truly able to help me to see myself in a more organized manner. Our sessions helped me to prioritize my life and to show me what I really held as valuable. I've taken some really big steps in the past year and I owe a lot of that to the practicality and confidence that Sarah helped me to see in myself and to utilize in the world."
"You're great to talk to. You emanate this calm energy that's very supportive."
“Thanks again for supporting me. I feel really lucky to have you in my life. I am endlessly grateful for you, your warmth and your spirit. You are quite simply one of the best people I know.”
“You are a true pure positive light in this dimly lit world in which we live. You are one of my oldest friends. Even though we don't speak that often and are miles apart, your cool, positive energy is always felt and appreciated!! Thank you!”
"Oh Sarah, you are just so delightfully human. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that about you. You may not know now, but it is a true gift. I don't say this to many, but I am SO grateful I am on the planet the same time as you! You really have a gift of so much love and appreciation. I am honored that you give me so much of your love."
"We met today for just a short amount of time, but it was enough for you and your kindness to impact me in amazing ways... All I know is that I saw much of myself in you. I could see it in the way you spoke and looked me in the eye. Your powerful communication reminded me of the way I act when meeting new people; at that moment, nothing matters but listening and communicating with the person you are with. What a powerful social tool!
I admire your mastery of effective and meaningful communication. You won me over immediately, from complete strangers to kindred spirits. Seeing your shining example of warm-heartedness has reminded me that there is so much more."
"Emotion is the messenger of love; it is the vehicle that carries every signal from one brimming heart to another. For human beings, feeling deeply is synonymous with being alive."
-Thomas Lewis, A General Theory of Love
I have a shameless commitment to heartfelt honesty and connection. However, I am only willing to work with people who wish to let love into their hearts for the sake of their own growth.
Is that you?
