“Before meeting Sara, I knew that I was on a three year plan for finding a new career since I would like to get my 20 years of public school teaching in. However, I had no idea what I wanted to do or was even qualified to do. I did have fantasy jobs in my head but that was just it; they were fantasies. I also knew that I needed some guidance to make my current job more rewarding.

Having worked with Sara, I have a solid idea of what I want to do and have an action plan on how to obtain my goal. I am feeling more confident and know that I have many qualifications for the job I want and feel positive that I will get the job I am seeking.

While I was nervous in the beginning, Sara made me feel completely at ease and was so attentive to my needs. She takes fantastic notes and is an extremely great listener. She is reliable, organized, flexible, and available for questions and or concerns in between sessions.

Sara works you to your inner most core while you are discovering your life purpose and supports you every step of the way. I now have the tools that I was looking for to help me find a new career. Coaching has given me a positive outlook on my current job and a clear picture of my new career.”


“I was referred to Sara from someone who knew I was exploring big changes in my work life.  I’d been working for years in the corporate world at various technology companies, developing my skills and responsibilities. And then I started to lose interest in what previously had driven me and realized my path in this work environment was not where I wanted to continue to expend my energy and time.  I was burnt out and developing a negative view of work.

In working with Sara, I dug deep into my mindset and attitude about work.  Sara encouraged me to examine my mental habits surrounding my expectations of myself in work.  She helped me believe that I could create and own a work life which encompassed my talents, values, and purpose.  I appreciated the commitment that Sara gave to working with me, as the changes I was making in my mindset took time.

I benefited greatly from Sara, a coach who knew how to listen, question, and encourage me.  I now feel ownership of my work life and have a much more positive outlook.”


“I came to Sara in a time of feeling like I had no direction career wise.

Through working with her I was able to dive so much deeper than determining what I wanted to do (work in health and wellness in low-income communities); I was able to forge a path for understanding and creating space for who I am and how I want to be in the world.

Noticing the things that brought me joy and energy, and trusting to lean into them, allowed me to see more clearly the things I wanted to focus on, and put to rest a lot of the spinning thoughts (“what am I doing?” “where do I go from here?”) in my head. Also, through naming what I felt called to do and making steps to move in that direction, I have had a significant decrease in my anxiety.

I took one year to really commit to leaning into myself and what felt right, which ultimately led to me defining my next major step: going back to school (which was something I thought I’d never do—even during coaching).

‘Leaning in’ is and was not easy but it was crucial for me to just trust the process. Now looking back I have evidence that this works which motivates me to continue using this approach moving forward.

Sara is 100% invested. Her questions and reflections on what I would share gave me confidence and clarity. I now have a solidified “tool box” that I can fall back on when I am feeling like I need to be grounded and find direction.”

“After two Peace Corps assignments, meeting with Sara was just what I needed to align my deepest convictions of who I knew I was and who I wanted to become.

Sara walked me through how to get there.  She was such a powerful listener and made me feel understood and valued.  I knew I could trust her to help me sort out where I had been, the strengths I felt within me which were still dormant, and the possibility of finding true fulfillment in life.

As a result, I gained the confidence I needed to marry my sweetheart, Minkie, and I also got accepted into a top ranked international relations graduate program.  The same core principles and convictions that Sara helped me to discover guided me from grad school to a career in university administration.  I now work for a university that has a global online degree program and I manage all operations in Europe.

I honestly never imagined that I could be so satisfied in my career and in my family life – Minkie and I now have a son – and I feel I owe much of my present satisfaction in life to Sara’s influence on me in that very critical and transitional time in my life.  She taught me that life is a mission and not a career.  She helped me establish persistence and kindness as ruling properties in my family.”


“I can’t believe the difference in my life over the past few months since starting work with Sara. After years of success in my career, I hit a plateau that put me in a negative space. This left me feeling down, lost and somewhat hopeless. Sara helped me shift my thinking from focusing on negativity and problems to positivity and solutions.

The work we’ve done together over just a short period of time has pulled me out of the negative path I was allowing myself to go down and into a path where I feel confident, energized and excited. After months of feeling like nothing was going my way and my career was coming to an end, I have encountered amazing new opportunities and have the momentum I was looking for!

Sara is one of the most caring, genuine and honest I have ever met. I am so grateful and would recommend Sara’s coaching to anyone who wants to know themselves more fully, to grow and gain a road map for more authentic success.”

“Working with Sara provided me with encouragement, inspiration, and clarity at a time when I felt uncertain. Her calm, centered energy, and authentic desire to see me succeed has helped me break through obstacles and uncover solutions.

Sara guided me in breaking down an overwhelming project into smaller, attainable steps. This has made the process feel so much more doable, and by the time we laid out a plan for the week my feelings of overwhelm were replaced by confidence and renewed energy. At the end of each session, I could see my idea taking form, and starting my own business became a manageable process that I felt in control of.

My sessions with Sara have proven to be a tremendous asset, and have helped me successfully navigate the daunting process of setting up a catering business. Working through this process has given me the confidence to follow my dream of entrepreneurship!”


“Since I started working with Sara, I am more trusting of my journey.  I have a deeper internal confidence, that I hope grows into an external confidence to express myself more freely in all aspects of my life.

Through coaching, I learned how to ground myself in my values and partake in difficult discussions at work while staying aligned with who I am. I also learned the necessity of celebrating my heart, treating it with encouragement and prioritization.

Sara dedicated big chunks of her life to service, and that adds to the uniqueness of understanding and personal experience she has, that helps me as a Former Jesuit Volunteer really feel attached, relatable and understood by her. She is supportive, caring, loving, fun, introspective, and knows her ish. I really trust her, and that is hard for me to do. I definitely recommend working with her!”

“After attending Holy Cross and doing Jesuit Volunteer Corps, where intentional living and reflection were more commonplace, I’ve felt a lack of connection with the values I cultivated so deeply during those years.

Coaching has really helped me to integrate those values into my daily (adult) life by first understanding what makes me feel whole and taking the practical, achievable steps towards that state of being.

Sara has given me both the tools and support to pursue my goals and really hone in on what is most important to me right now. The Ideal Image and ELI [Energy Leadership Index Assessment] tools have been both fun and helpful in breaking down those goals and breaking down why I want what I do, and to figure out how to keep operating at higher energy levels.

I feel energized and affirmed after our sessions, and extremely supported by Sara—a true partnership. Coaching has helped me to feel more alive and more at home with who I am.”


“Before coaching I found myself feeling unorganized, unable to focus, and unclear about my future.

Sara’s passion and talent in coaching becomes clear the first time you talk to her. Throughout our sessions, she held me accountable, helped me to set better goals, and challenged me to come up with answers to the deeply complicated questions that arise when you are trying to discover your life purpose.

She helped me connect the unorganized dots in my head to see the full picture. After coaching, I have a clearer vision of what lies ahead with me, and I have the tools I need when inevitable challenges come my way.”

“I came to work with Sara because I was in the biggest rut of my life. Not only did I not know how to move towards what I wanted, I didn’t know what I wanted in the first place, and I was beating myself up for not having a direction.

Sara helped me recognize how I was treating myself in deeply negative ways, and helped me come to understand some of the things that were most important to me. More so, she showed me how I could move to focus more on those things in my life. Through a series of exercises, as well as her wisdom and insight, Sara helped me realize many things about myself I wasn’t willing to on my own. 

If you’re wanting to make a change in your life, but don’t know how to do that, are scared of doing that, or don’t know exactly what that means, you should absolutely work with Sara.”


“I really appreciate the flexibility I’ve received through the whole [coaching] process, and Sara really listening to what I’m saying and responding to that.

I’m so impressed with her breadth of knowledge and ability to try different strategies, and I’m continually impressed with her dedication and commitment to the relationship.

I appreciate how she sends me things [extra resources, between sessions] that she thinks would be helpful. It really shows how much she cares.”
