Before working with Sara as my Life Coach, I knew theoretically that I could design any type of life that I wanted. However, it wasn’t until I began working with her one-on-one that I realized it. Using her honesty, perspective, and keen sense of humor, Sara has compassionately led me on an inward journey. With her guidance, I completed a powerful vision board that I had been imagining for months. We also worked through the Purpose Clarity Program together. I learned to question the roadblocks in my mind, in order to dismantle them. Sara is a very supportive coach, empowering me to live my best, most authentic life! I highly recommend her services.

I love developing partnerships with individuals who are seeking personal growth. It's so rewarding to partner with an individual who may be unclear about what they want for their future at the start of coaching and to then see them find their passion and start living it as they grow personally and professionally.

I believe that the adversity I have overcome prepared me to serve my life's purpose. That purpose is helping others to become empowered to live their best lives. I knew I wanted to make a positive difference in the lives of others, connect with people on a very real level, and use my strengths—honesty, perspective, and humor to do. Coaching allows me to do all of that and more!

I invest in my clients, just as they invest in me. I partner with them in their cause and advocate for their success. I promise to show up to every session present in body and mind with my sole focus being YOU!


Personal development coaching is for individuals who are seeking personal growth in some manner. I'm not an expert in your life and I won't pretend to be! What I will do is partner with you in your cause. I will champion your agenda and ask targeted questions to help you unveil your true desires. With your answers we will work together in setting goals and creating agreed-upon action plans to attain those goals, resulting in long-term fulfillment and satisfaction. If you encounter roadblocks, such as limiting beliefs, self-doubt, fear, etc. we will work together to get you on the other side of them!

Most big changes, even the joyful ones, bring stress and uncertainty. Although it can be hard to stay focused and centered during these times of transition, they can be great opportunities for growth! As your coach I will work with you to ease the stress of your transition, reframe your perspective, and help you let go of what no longer serves you so you can begin to make room for what does. With your desired outcome identified you will be able to move into the future in a healthy manner. If you are navigating a life transition, whether by choice or not, transition coaching can assist you in finding your way.

If you are wrestling with a life situation such as going through a major life transition, a personal awakening, or reinventing yourself after an illness, divorce, job loss, relocation or disaster. Reclaiming/rediscovering your identity. Identifying your future direction now that you aren't working. Dealing with changes in the composition of your family - empty nesters, parents of boomerang children, etc., this 4-part program is for you. You may be a recent graduate. Seeking employment or changing careers. Returning to work after a stint as a stay-at-home parent, caregiver, or illness and are in need of roadmap to point you in the right direction. Again, this is the program for you. Please know this program is not recommended if you are involved in an acute transition such as grieving a loss, becoming a parent, getting married, relocating, etc. In these situations, I recommend transition coaching as an alternative. As a result of working through the Purpose Clarity Program, you will have more clarity about who you are and what gives you a sense of meaning. A clear statement of your purpose. Ideas about you might bring purpose to your life through your work or service. An action plan to help you do just that. The 4 parts of the program are as follows: Part 1: Identify you passions and interests. Part 2: Brainstrom up to 40 ideas in less than an hour. Part 3: Use your top ten ideas to discover your purpose. Part 4: Create a plan for how to bring your purpose to life.

A vision board (dream board) is a powerful tool to assist you in designing the life you want to live. It’s a collage of pictures and words that represent your goals and dreams. Vision boards help in the manifestation of your goals and dreams by keeping them fresh in your mind. This allows you to maintain focus on them. More importantly, it allows some people to cast a vision of a future that they may have never thought possible based on their prior life circumstances. If your future seems a bit blurry a vision board can make that picture much clearer. PARTIES: Vision board parties make a great theme event for a night in with your friends or family. The sharing of dreams and goals with each other always leads to new discoveries about one another. Plus, it makes for a gathering filled with positivity, inspiration, and love! When you hire me for a vision board party, you’re in charge of the guest list and I’m in charge of the entertainment. I will bring all the necessary supplies for you and each guest to create a vision board. There will be a brief but fun and informative teaching session about what a vision board is and how to make it work. I will then hang back while you and each of your guests create your individual vision boards. I will also be available to offer inspiration and guidance throughout the process. WORKSHOPS: Vision board workshops are ideal for a wide range of groups. Small businesses seeking to foster a team environment and organizations providing services for children (middle school age or above), young adults, and adults find that workshops bring clarity and connection to participants. Additionally, non-profits providing resources for sober living, support for domestic violence or sex trafficking survivors, or transitional housing for homeless can use these workshops to provide hope and comfort for those who may feel stuck in the present or held back by trauma. I provide all the necessary supplies for each attendee to create a vision board. There is a presentation that covers what a vision board is, the science that supports vision boards, and how to make a vision board work for an individual. I facilitate a guided reflection period to allow for attendees to better focus on their goals and dreams, and then engage them in a few exercises to get their creativity flowing. Once the creation of the vision boards is underway, I offer inspiration and guidance throughout and encourage attendees to share with each other and to champion each other’s goals and dreams.
