Happy Coaching Clients...


Sarah is open, a great listener, and succinct. I thought it would be odd doing coaching over the phone rather than face-to-face, but it's not. She gives great cues that she is really listening to what you are saying. Her guidance is wonderful - nothing is pushed or forced, everything is suggested - if it's not your style then she comes up with something else. Sarah is amazing, she listens without judgement, sets time aside and is great at listening to your words and summing them up. She helps you come up with solutions and challenges you (in a very safe way). She allows you to talk about anything. She is also great at taking time to tell you about the progress she has seen. I now feel more confident and feel comfortable setting boundaries with people without feeling guilty about it. There really are no words for how much Sarah has helped me. She has a gift of listening and understanding.

Sarah gets me. She listens and she asks questions that make me think -- ones that I would NEVER think to ask myself. Because of this, I understand myself better. I am not only encouraged, but I am supported in every way -- no judgement, but challengement (is that a word? lol). Sarah allows me to be me, she loves me for me, but she also helps me to invite myself to GROW and BE the real me. To actually live authentically. She is intuitive and smart and witty. I love her presence in my life!

Sarah has an ability to see a situation/issue and positively and kindly ask questions about it and re-route my thinking or attitude. I left coaching feeling inspired and refreshed. She gave new light to situations.

I think that many people have a lot of issues they want to address, sometimes they feel overwhelmed and cannot figure out exactly what is going on with them. My favorite part of coaching was being able to have someone help me pinpoint the issues I wanted to address. Sarah was great at helping me through this process. I feel like I am more organized. I felt like I could not keep up with life demands before starting. I also feel that I am more accepting of my mental health. I will have days that I feel overwhelmed, stressed, tired, and mentally drained...and that is okay.

Sarah was very respectful of my privacy and made me feel at ease to share what I was comfortable with sharing. She is kind, professional, respectful, and knowledgable. You will be in good hands with her as your coach!

Sarah is positive, enthusiastic, down to earth and relatable, guiding instead of leading, so nice to feel I am being heard. This experience has helped me realize how important it is to truly focus on myself sometimes, to think about what is truly working and what's not working. I can see so much benefit in the process that Sarah has helped me discover. Talking with Sarah has helped me prioritize my everyday and my goals for the future. I am able to more confidently plan.

Sarah knows what she is doing. It's like talking to a friend, but without all the bad advice. She helped me reach my goals well before the set limit, and I know walking away from my sessions I am okay. I am happy. I am doing good. I can do it. And I never felt that before. I went from a 0, to maybe a 5 over several weeks, and then BAM all of the sudden I was at 60 and everything was changing within 24 hours and falling into place. I'm much happier now!

Sarah is someone who listens without judgement, assists you in editing down to your true values/desires. Her feedback helps you help yourself. My favorite part of coaching was how Sarah took what I was trying to say or figure out, condensed it, and repeated it to me. She asked illuminating questions that really helped me figure out my issues and/or goals on my own. I gained a deeper understanding of myself and my life wishes working with Sarah.

Sarah is a great coach and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I left our conversation feeling empowered to take control of my life.
