The Top 3 Emotional Experiences that Make Life Feel Hard:
If you have any of the above, keep reading, and know that there are solutions.
"Sarah is one of the best coaches I've ever met"
"Sarah has this amazing gift of being both intuitive and systematic.
She has the magic where she hears what's behind the words.
Sarah has the compassion that doesn't just meet people where they are at, but makes them feel safe there, and safe to take the next step forward.
She explains things in simple, clear, and simultaneously poetic ways, and at the same time she’s really straight with people about what is going to move them forward."
These lessons are crafted from years of client observations, psychological research studies, and my own personal experience overcoming perfectionism and poor self-talk.
When I learn a better tool or skill, I update this course to include it.
No, you do not.
As an introvert, I can relate to feeling that way. Many years ago, I enrolled in my first online course, which had a community forum. It took me a long time to stop lurking and participate, but when I did, I got a lot more out of it and even made some friends.
I encourage you to lurk and read if nothing else.
I teach this material because my wish for everyone is to have less stress and more joy in everyday life.
When I looked around as a student, I found lots of short articles that had good information, and some very intense therapy-type approaches, but I never found a course that broke the behavior changes I wanted to implement into practical, action-oriented steps. So I made one.
That means that for every skill I ask you to practice, I have found research papers that cite studies that have shown that specific skill to have a positive affect on the behavior we are targeting.
For example, in the Breaking up with Perfection lessons, I drew from several studies done on college students that researched the relationship between perfectionism and self-regard, procrastination, and anxiety.
In addition, I frequently draw from CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and ACT (Acceptance Commitment Theory) in the lessons and worksheets I write.
I had an unusual education. I was very fortunate to have excellent apprenticeships in three areas:
Over the last 30 years, I have earned licenses and certificates in yoga teaching, massage therapy, dog training, aromatherapy, personal training, and nutrition. I focus my continuing education on behavior change psychology and anatomy.
I have also been suicidally depressed and in very unhealthy relationships and healed from those experiences.
I am now in year 20 of a happy, healthy marriage, and have a positive outlook on life.
All of these experiences inform my teaching.
I understand resilience, change, and growth.
