LOVE LIFE. LIVE BOLDLY.

As someone who has lived through some of life’s most difficult traumas–including sexual assault + relational and betrayal trauma–I believe that we all have the power within to become our best self and live life boldly. 

My life began in a small, one stoplight town in the Midwest surrounded by corn-fields and creeks. Today I live in California by the ocean and mountains where I feel the most at peace.

How did I get to this place in my life?

Well, it happened in 2013 when my best friend and husband of 17-years, the person I loved and adored, disclosed secrets that betrayed me, himself, our family and the community. When this man I trusted all these years revealed to me that he was gay and holding secrets of multiple addictions, the news slammed me to the floor and made me question everything. Could I survive the pain and find forgiveness? How would I like my future to look? And could I make a new life when I felt so broken? 

As if hearing and living this trauma weren’t enough, my husband’s disclosure triggered the resurgence of trauma I had also suffered from a sexual assault and subsequent birth of my first child at age 17. The pain was overwhelming, yet I lived daily by what my parents taught me when I was 17 years old: place one foot in front of the other, and keep walking from a place of integrity. You will get through this. 

I put on my running shoes and ran for my life.

I climbed mountains and paddled the ocean to release my fear and anger. Nearly two years later, the healing work I did created a shift; I felt a sense of being grounded. I felt safety, clarity, and forgiveness. It was time to help others do the same. 

At the core of who I am lies a teacher; I would rather share my knowledge of growth and healing for the betterment of others than anything else in the world. 

My intention is to connect with you, the client, and guide you on your healing journey. Are you ready for a shift? Do you desire empowerment and change? Are you longing to feel inspired, find your purpose, and grow in a supportive and nurturing environment? 

My intention is that through 1:1 coaching, my programs and retreats in the Grand Canyon, or by purchasing my book, WALK THROUGH THIS: Harness the Healing Power of Nature and Travel the Road to Forgiveness, you will become the person you aspire to be. 

Please reach out. I created all of this for you

RED HEELS

I was constantly being questioned how a mom of three boys could reinvent her life at 40 years of age, guiding and coaching others in the Grand Canyon/Wilderness. At the same time, my femininity was being questioned as I was exiting a marriage where my husband is gay.

Though seen as strong, I wasn’t always seen as feminine … which stung.

At my Core, I am Pure Woman. I am also an Adventurer at Heart.

I decided that I wanted a symbol, something for me, which would show the world that a woman does not have to be put in a box. I wanted to show that we can do our nails and summit a peak on the exact same day. We can hike trails, climb boulders and still come home to put on a dress and heels. We can embrace, love and honor all sides of ourselves.

It came to me one day while running. “I will buy a pair of red stilettos and wear them on the peak of Mt. Baldy…for me.” I posted my picture on social media and the response was surreal. Through that one picture, a message was also posted to the Universe… that women CAN be Strong and Feminine.

My heels have seen Peaks throughout Yosemite, Mt. Wilson, Cucamonga Peak, Mt. Baldy, San Jacinto, San Bernardino Peak, San Gorgonio, the High Sierra Trail, Mt. Whitney … and many, many others.

Red represents courage, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. I will never stop embracing me…

Hopefully these red heels give you the courage to do the same.

🔥 Raising the collective consciousness in healing is why I do what I do. My hope is that we all understand + believe our worthiness of healing from our past, intentionally stepping into our present, while manifesting + creating our best life imaginable.

Unapologetically.
Without judgment.
Setting fear aside.

Rising into this collective consciousness requires us to look up! Because looking down only prevents us from seeing the beauty of this world.

And oh my gosh .. this world is so damn beautiful.

So, my friends, please take a moment + look up today. Notice the clouds. The sky. The stars + the planets. Watch the branches + leaves blowing in the wind. This world is full of wonder. It’s full of awe. And it’s so inspiring to be a part of it in this moment.

You have one life. Live it well.

THIS 48 YR OLD WOMAN PASSED! Retention from Trauma Brain does improve! Six years ago, during my first Wilderness First Responder certification at age 42, I cried. No, really .. I literally CRIED during the course. I had a hard time understanding the material. My brain felt like etch-a-sketch. I’d figure it out, and then somehow it all magically disappeared. I KNEW the material. Hell, I passed! Yet it was TORTURE getting through the course.

Fast forward six years, I’ve been re-certified twice now, and this time it was actually ENJOYABLE. Not only did I understand the material, it sunk in so deeply and naturally .. it was like I was finally {almost} “me before trauma brain.”

I’m not sure if my mind will ever be 100% back to the way it was before complex-PTSD 8-yrs ago. I’m not sure if I will ever get to a point where I won’t forget where I put things. Or if I’ll ever remember a list without writing it down .. like I used to. I don’t know if my mind will ever “not wander” or if it’ll be easy to “stay on track” like it did before all of this happened. I miss my memory.

But here’s the thing: it’s SO MUCH BETTER than it was! And if it’s this much better today, holy wow .. I KNOW it’ll continue to be that much better!

As my wilderness medicine instructor taught us this weekend: “Pay attention to the patients’ medical patterns + trends. From there, you decide anticipated problems + treatment.”

Well, friends, the most important treatment over these last six years has been reminding myself EVERY DAY to be good to me. My treatment has been a constant reminder to be FIERCELY self compassionate with my mind. It has become a practice of loving my brain + heart. Of having gratitude for the “fight or flight” I dealt with over + over again. I’ve learned so much!

It’s been a reminder of self love, guidance and PATIENCE {LOTS OF PATIENCE!} from not only myself .. but all of those who choose to be in my life.

This has been my treatment. And thus, I have tremendous hope within my pattern in life.

Be good to you. Because you deserve the best that life has to offer. Need a reminder? I’ll gladly be that person.

All my love,
xo
Sara
