Sarah is incredibly dedicated and passionate about improving the lives of others. It is obvious from the minute you meet her. She is kind, non-judgemental and open to the needs of her clients, treating all individually. I cannot say enough about Sarah and what she can do you when you partner with her as your coach. She is highly knowledgeable and compassionate — traits not always found in the same person. ~ Carrie B.
Sarah teaches with us in the hospital on adolescent and adult mental health units. Her kindness, compassion and professionalism make her an extremely effective teacher in this setting. Sarah also teaches for us in school settings and is equally impressive there. We highly recommend Sarah as an instructor and leader! ~ Chrissy M.
I contacted Sarah to help me to inculcate mindfulness in my lifestyle. She was very quick to grasp my objectives and came up with a working plan. I found Sarah to be a patient, involved and caring person. She continues to motivate me to step out of my comfort zone and try new ways of transforming my life. I enjoy our sessions together. Specifically, she has helped me to take care of myself. I strongly recommend her. ~ Neeta
Sarah is wonderful to work with. She listens, probes with thoughtful questions about your lifestyle, and provides feedback in the form of suggestions, links to information, and referrals to other practitioners to augment her lifestyle program that is customized to you, your body, and health issues (mental and physical). ~ Tracy
