LOVE LIFE. LIVE BOLDLY.

Hi,

I’m Sara, a professional coach, wilderness guide, author, TEDx speaker, and an executive producer of a documentary in production.

I’m also a single mom of three sons, an adventurer at heart, and a survivor of multiple traumas. My business and dedication to others’ transformation began after finding my own healing in nature.

Three words have led me to where I am today: Truth. Inspiration. Hope.

Please scroll through this site to find resources and helpful information … reach out and let me know how I can be your guide. No one should feel alone in this world.

I am honored to have you here.

–Sara

#7: YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS. : I choose to belie #7: YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS.

I choose to believe that life is happening for us, not to us.

Your life won’t look the same as it did before hard times, and really, isn’t that a beautiful thing?

To be able to grow + learn + nurture our heart, mind, body + soul is a gift.

To deepen our understanding of self + not view life through a judgmental lens is something we cannot acquire without experiencing difficulties.
.
What I promise you—because I’ve lived it—is that you WILL GET THROUGH THIS.

With time.
With working on self.
With love + grace + compassion + understanding.

YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS.

And what’s beautiful? What’s MOST BEAUTIFUL? Is that when you do, you’ll look back and say, “I SURVIVED IT ... and I’M A BETTER PERSON BECAUSE OF IT.”

AND ... YES ... this picture is real. It was taken while climbing off the summit of Mt. Baldy with my niece, @graceanna815 . Her grandma had passed away just a few days earlier. This was a very spiritual climb in many ways. Looking across the bowl of the mountain and seeing a rainbow around our reflected image ... that was something I’ll never forget. I always feel so connected in the wild.

#6: DO NOT SETTLE. . Do not settle for a life you #6: DO NOT SETTLE.

Do not settle for a life you do not desire. Do not settle for half a smile or half a laugh. Do not settle for half a heart or half a mind or half a soul. Do not settle for someone who won’t take care of themselves. Do not settle your values for anyone’s. Do not settle for someone who doesn’t honor your values, or who won’t take your dreams seriously. Do not settle for “half truths” or “little white lies.

Do not settle for anything less than truth filled conversation, inspiring days + hope-filled futures.
Do not settle YOU. Not for anyone.

#5: SET ASIDE JUDGMENT.
.
If only we could live free from judgment for self + others, simply understanding that we are all humans on our own journey in life.
If we could view ourselves and others through a lens of love + compassion, what is possible?
How could you view your own life differently?
And what could shift?

I was interviewing a woman for my podcast today @janineurbaniakreid + she said something rather profound. “I’m just an ordinary woman in extraordinary circumstances.” A mom, wife + resilient woman, her son was diagnosed with brain cancer at ten years of age.
What perspective.

This is Day 4:
.
#4: YOU ARE NOT CRAZY.
.
This is a true story. ➡️ It was the Spring of 2014. I was a freaking hot mess, constantly triggered in my trauma recovery + not sure what to make of my life. My husband had returned from rehab (he received treatment), my kids were doing ok (yay me for getting them support!), but I never received the help I needed. I called the rehab facility, explaining what I was searching for. I was just hoping someone could guide me to understand what was “happening to me.” They told me, “We found one person. Maybe she can help you.”
.
Enter my coach + therapist, Dorit, who said the magic words over our first call, “You aren’t crazy, you are experiencing PTSD + trauma.”
.
I sat down on my rocking chair and cried. I cried for all of the times I was made to feel like I was the crazy person. For all of the times that I didn’t understand what was happening to me.
I cried for me.
I wasn’t crazy.
.
Coincidentally, I found out years later that Dorit was told by the rehab facility upon my referral that, “Sara is crazy.” And yet, it was Dorit who two sessions into our work together, told me, “You will be doing big, VERY BIG things someday with your trauma, Sara!”
.
So to all of you who are told you’re crazy? You are not. What you are experiencing is real, valid, and true. DO NOT let anyone tell you otherwise. And if they do? SHOW them otherwise. No one can take your recovery from you.
