My Approach

From where you are…

Where does your story begin? What change are you seeking in your life right now - personally or professionally?

How might you open up new possibilities? And challenge assumptions - your own or others?


What is getting in your way? How could you navigate through (or around) it? What might be on the other side? 


To where you want to be…

As we explore the gap from where you are to where you want to be – we will unpack the obstacles standing in your way, understand the strengths already available to you and discover shifts that will enable you to make real, sustained change. 

I started coaching with Sarah during a very tumultuous time for me, and it’s so in the rearview mirror now. Sarah helped me figure out what really mattered to me, what my priorities are and how to move in the direction toward making them happen.


Throughout, Sarah balanced empathy with accountability and helped me see what I was capable of. The surprise for me was she guided me into critical thought, and I realize I’m now capable of doing this myself.

Support for the journey.

I will partner with you to draw out that which is within you – by showing up with curiosity, asking powerful questions, truly listening and sharing reflections and observations to generate insight.

As your coach, I will also hold you accountable – bring a mix of backbone & heart – to support you in driving towards your vision

'While I may share tools depending on your unique situation and goals, often it is what comes from within you that is the most meaningful in driving sustained change.
