About

"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 to tune into their creativity, inner peace and authentic selves through experimental, somatic and mindfulness based ceremonial and theraputic practices.  

 

I’ve been practicing mindfulness and theraputic neuroscience-based methods for over a decade. Now I share those tools and help clients cultivate greater awareness, equanimity and remain 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.

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 or avoidance, 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.

One of my greatest joys in working with others is witnessing their own discovery of what it means to be fully human. I believe everyone has the capacity to self heal. It's an honor to bare witness to the beauty that you are and always have been. 

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 25-minute call. If it’s a good fit, we can book a session and begin.
