Hey! You made it to my About page! My name is Sarah. I’m really glad you found me.
A. interested in how and if I can help you
B. Trying to figure out what the hell a life coach is
C. Another coach stalking me to see how I put my stuff together
Whichever it is, or something else entirely, I’m really glad you found me. Let’s see if we should hang out some more.
Here’s the plan for this page.
You’ll learn:1. Who I work with, how I help and my general approach and philosophy 2. Where to find both free resources as well as products and services to help you get what you need. 3. The story of how I got here
I. Who I work with and how I can help
I work with people who know they were called to do something special and know they have a lot to offer humanity.
They’re generally in one of two places:
Need to sift through years of skills, experience and passion into a business that will give them both freedom and the ability to make a real difference for people. I help them figure out what they really want to do. I also help them to combine everything in a way that really makes sense for who they are and how they are meant to serve. Multipassions—> 1 business.
Already in business
People in business now who have trouble staying focused. Who know that their difficulties are self imposed and that if they could figure out how to get out of their own way, they would have more fun and make more money. I help with the mindset, confidence, fears, resistance stuff that comes up when you create and put stuff out there. The inner work of creating and running a business.
What to do, how to market yourself, your website–all of that stuff is important. That’s the HOW of running your business. It’s also the least important piece. Much more critical is aligning your business with your soul, with the deep parts of who you really are. If your business doesn’t support you, you won’t support it.
I combine mind-body tools with metaphor with lots of inquiry to get to the bottom of whatever is holding you back. I don’t have answers about what you should do. I do know how to show you how to find them. Mind + Body + Nurtured spirit = A peaceful and happy life, meaningful contributions and plenty of money.
When you know how to navigate your life from the inside out you have much more power than if someone just tells you what to do.
As the old cliche sort of goes:
Teach a gal to build a business and she’ll build a business.
Teach a gal to navigate from the inside out and she’ll build a (beautiful, unconventional, just-for-her, amazing) life.
What other people say about how my work has helped them:
“Damn woman. You are amazing. I was feeling really fearful and unsure of myself and now I know it was because I wasn’t heading in the right direction.” Katie McClain |Ma Vie Magique
“I’ve paid a lot of money for coaching and had never gotten this kind of valuable information.” Christie Inge | Body Image Coach
“My mind-voices were battering me daily, and now are replaced with encouragement, or
peaceful quiet- which I never thought possible.” Jano Brindisi
“You seriously have no idea what you have done to help me change my life. I still have things to work on, and can’t wait to see what happens as I continue to work with you.” Teresa Schramm | Merriment Photography

III. My story
I’ve been a lot of the places you’ve been—depressed, drugged-out, aimless, overweight. I’ve even worked as a telemarketer, for God’s sake!
Then I realized there is a better way to be in the world, and I’ve spent the last two decades learning how to help people work with their biggest, messiest problems.
For most of my career, I helped heal people through massage and yoga. But a few years ago, I decided I wanted to have an impact that went way beyond the table or the mat. So I took a deep breath, plunked down the credit card, and signed up to train as a coach with the utterly amazing Martha Beck (you know, Oprah’s sidekick).
It changed my life.
It was like a magic ticket to the good stuff I’d always dreamed I’d be able to do. As soon as I started coaching clients one-on-one, I could see fast, deep, and REAL changes happening for them.
And it’s only gotten better from there.
Here’s why: I believe that this work is truly what I’ve been put on this earth to do. It’s my gift. It’s my superpower.
So what’s in it for you?
Because of my calming energy, fierce intuitive skills and uncanny ability to get to the heart—quickly!—of whatever issue you’re facing, you’ll be able to make profound changes in your life with lightning speed. (Bonus! You’ll even have fun along the way.) Who wouldn’t like some of that?
Our work together will be focused and practical. I’ll teach you to see yourself in wonderful new ways. And we’ll get you working on projects that are really important so you can live a brighter, bolder, more soulful life.
What else should you know?
Every fear, every freakout, every procrastination has a holy message for you that can help lead you to your right path. Not the path your mom thinks is right for you. Or the one your husband thinks is right. It’s the path you’re craving in that truest, deepest part of your soul that you haven’t been able to access for a long time, maybe even since you were a kid.
Don’t worry. It’s still there waiting for you.
And so am I.
I believe there is an underlying current of sweetness and truth in all of us. I’m here to connect with that—and to help you connect with that.
I believe the spiritual life is messy and real and practical and magical.
I believe you’re ready to stop half-assing your life.
I believe people do what they think is best for them, but they’re usually wrong about that.
I believe in karma. Not the “I-steal-your-drugs-so-you’re going-to-steal-mine” kind of karma, but the larger “reap-what-you-sow” and “for-every-action-there-is-a-reaction” kind.
I believe in the magnificent, fast-moving power of Love, of soft power, of peace.
I believe in the power of sunshine.
I believe in being myself because I. Am. Perfect.
I believe it doesn’t matter what you think, feel or do, it’s all good.
I believe in you.
I love to connect and if I can be helpful, I love that even more.

I check email a LOT. It’s a great way to schedule time with me or connect more deeply about your situation.
This is my personal page, but my personal and business life are pretty connected. Send me a friend request and let’s party.
I’m on twitter way more than I mean to be, so @ me and then follow me so that if I need to respond privately to you, I can send you a dm.
The phone is a terrible way to reach me, but just in case. I do love to talk on the phone. I’m like a teenage girl and I’m certainly heading for brain cancer from all the hours spent on my cell. However, I hate voicemail and I’m really bad about responding to it. Try texting.
xoxo and many blessings,
