Hi, I'm Sarah!

A mother of two wonderful children and a woman taking action to shift anxiety and guilt to confidence and joy.

Three years ago one of my kids came out to me as LGBTQ. I struggled as I watched someone that I love so much experience confusion, fear and isolation. I felt completely helpless.

 In my search for resources and support, I found The Life Coach School by Brooke Castillo. Her coaching model spoke to me and just like that I was on my way to becoming a Certified Life Coach.

This program helped me work through my own challenges and turn my struggle into growth


In fact, I’ve created my own unique coaching method based on Brooke Castillo’s model to help encourage and empower members of the LGBTQ community.

Now, I have the honor of teaching other moms (and dads) the skills they need to move out of confusion and overwhelm into confidence and care.

As a parent you want the best for your child, no matter what. I’m here to offer you the right tools and guidance to help you and your children flourish, together.
