I have been working with Sarah for several months now and find her to be an incredible coach. She asks all the right questions that force me to figure out for myself what changes I need to make in order to reach my goals. She has been incredibly helpful in supporting me with time management issues --she has given me tools that help make me very efficient with my very limited time. Indeed, her support has helped me run my business, my home, and prioritize all of the projects on my plate. Sarah is pleasant and flexible and I look forward to our weekly sessions. -Lisa G.
It has been a great experience working with Sarah! She helped us craft our company mission and statement as well as a concise and effective elevator pitch. She was extremely supportive and motivational in her approach, but also had great tactical and actionable tips. I loved the printouts she prepared for our meetings as well as her follow-up and guidance after our sessions. Sarah is seasoned, discreet, and highly professional and I recommend her without hesitation to others. – Germaine C.
I've been working with Sarah on a regular basis for over six weeks and the benefits of her coaching have already manifested in my day-to-day communication. Sarah is surely a competent coach, more than that, though, she is kind, compassionate, and makes the sessions feel really comfortable. Frequently, we're breaking long-standing patterns of behavior, which can be difficult. However, Sarah's affable way makes the sessions something to which I look forward, and, consequently, the difficult work becomes a little easier, too. I really look forward to continuing the work with Sarah and parlaying it into other aspects of my life and work.. -Ken F.
Having Sarah as a coach was extremely helpful for me in working through some complex personal and professional issues as well as support me in setting and reaching my health goals. Sarah always asks great questions that force me to dig deep into issues and bring to light things I never considered. With Sarah's assistance in the health realm, I was able to use data from my fitbit to continuously set small incremental goals. Over time, I had significantly increased my activity levels. Sarah's encouragement and support truly helped me to move into a better place in several aspects of my life. I highly recommend working with Sarah to support you in making positive changes in your life. -Donna V.
Through our weekly sessions, Sarah helped me realize I possess the tools to make changes in my life. She asked specific questions, listened patiently as I spoke, and suggested small, doable steps to reach my goals. I felt accountable to her and to myself each week. Sarah helped me realize my feelings about certain behaviors and how making small changes in my life empowers me to approach larger goals. -Jeanne W.
