"Art is giving yourself permission to translate life. Exactly the way you feel. See. And hear it. Be the artist you are. Give yourself permission to speak your own language."

- Niyyirah Waheed



Hi, I’m Sara!


I help people tune into their internal strength and built-in wisdom to create unshakable peace in an unpredictable world.


I’ve been practicing mindfulness and neuroscience-based methods for over a decade. Now I share those tools and help clients stay grounded through life’s challenges such as relationships, career change, life transitions, the grief of losing someone, finding their life purpose, and breaking through creative ruts.


As a Somatic Mindfulness Counselor, I guide people from a place of stress and anxiety to living life with a strong internal confidence and the tools to navigate through the rough parts.





Imagine having the skills to be able to tune in rather than tune out when life hits a rough patch or you feel stuck.


George Addair once said, "Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.”



We all experience internal resistance in different parts of our lives. It usually comes up as procrastination, especially when we start something new or want to make a change. Fear keeps us safe. It’s a healthy emotion, as long as it doesn’t hold us back from taking action on opportunities.  But when it does, there are ways to calm it down, work through it without triggering the resistance and ultimately, move through it to discover the prize that’s waiting for you on the other side.


...so, what’s the prize on the other side?  


It’s YOU. It’s your confidence, your joy, your best self that’s ready to join you in the life that deep down, you know is waiting to happen.


The root cause of our various fears are oftentimes so invisible to us that we may wonder and ask ourselves any variation of this one question:



why can’t I just…


  • Stop procrastinating

  • Speak up

  • Commit to following through

  • Meditate

  • Heal early childhood wounds and trauma

  • Get past the writer’s block...artistic rut...creative quagmire

  • Accept myself more fully

  • Feel confident about my inner knowing

  • Trust myself


  • ...go for it.


If you’d like to learn more or to see if we’re a good fit, I offer free 20-minute discovery calls. People often gain better clarity into their situation just from the 20-minute call. If it’s a good fit, we can book a session and begin.

My big "Why" for starting Life as Art


While the internet has its place, it is not a substitute for the connection that happens in real life.


It feels like we're in a time where it is imperative that we connect with ourselves more deeply, like when we feel fulfilled and connected. I believe that we are slowly losing touch with each other and ourselves as we become more connected online.


This is why I’m passionate about coaching people on how to tap back into that. Intuition is like a muscle that can lose strength in a hyper-connected online world. I help people tune back into their intuition and learn to trust their own wisdom again.


Our nervous system, our heart, our brains - our whole body is wired to interact with each other. We have the ability to tune in to our inner wisdom, as well as to each other.
