Non-Judgemental support and Guidance to Help You Navigate The Pitfalls and Find Your Way With Grace

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Are you overwhelmed by choices? 


Do you wish you had a non-judgemental sounding board to help you with all the decisions as well as the emotional ups and downs? 


Do you struggle to find people who really understand what you are going through? 


Are you feeling time pressure to make a choice or find work/life balance?


Any of this ring a bell?


THINKING

Are you trying to decide whether to give up on your dream of partnership and take the leap into single motherhood? You're mourning the vision of your life that you've always imagined. You want to keep dating another 6 months because you would really prefer a conventional path. You're spinning your wheels endlessly, wondering if you have enough support to handle it alone. Or maybe, your friends and family might be telling you to keep trying to find a partner, but you feel ready. You're pretty sure you want to move forward, but you don't know where to start and you'd like some guidance. 


TRYING

You finally took the leap and are trying to conceive, but it's harder than you thought. The logistics and medical jargon, fertility enhancement, picking a sperm donor are making your head spin. You've always been able to make things happen in life, but getting pregnant isn't so easily controlled and you're constantly on an emotional roller coaster. Your friends want to be there for you, but they just don't understand. As you get farther along in the process, you feel like you want to tell fewer and fewer friends because it's hard to keep explaining all the details to them and sometimes you just don't want to give constant updates. Yet, you still need support who understands what you are going through.  


PREGNANT

Or, you've finally gotten pregnant but now you need to make a million decisions about where to give birth, who to pick as a pediatrician and which baby carrier to buy. There are so many beautiful moments you want to share but it's hard to find witnesses. You're worried about your postpartum plan and getting the support you need. 


 MOTHERING

Maybe, you're baby is here.  You're the happiest you've ever been, but so tired and overwhelmed. There are endless decisions- options for daycare and preschool--and it's daunting to make all these decisions without a partner as a sounding board.


Or, you're well into raising your child but life but you constantly feel tired. You'd never change it for the world, but you struggle to juggle working and raising a child alone. There are so many decisions. Maybe your're wondering if you should shake things up by taking a new job, moving closer to family or just move somewhere cheaper and more family friendly. 



 
 

You're smart.

Of course you can figure it out on your own. 

BUT it doesn't mean you should do this alone.


Finally Get The Guidance
and Help You Deserve


Imagine feeling supported and seen throughout all aspects of your journey--not having to explain yourself and feel frustrated about your friends that genuinely want to help, but just don't really get it. 


Imagine having a guide who's been there, who can help you process the roller coaster of emotions, listen beyond your confusion and help you uncover your desires. 


Imagine, someone who can help you shortcut all the research, give input about next steps and what questions to ask next so you can stop feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. 


And, most importantly, imagine having clarity about your choices--not only dropping the doubt, but feeling empowered and clear about your path.

You can have all this through coaching. 


 
 
 

Sarah has been supporting me on my journey to become a mom for the past year, and I've had the privilege of working with her individually and in small groups.  I can't imagine the journey without her - at every low low or huge obstacle, she's been my thought partner and my cheerleader.  There were so many moments when I struggled to let others support me on my journey, but Sarah was is the one support that never feels hard - she listens, she shines light and shows me possibilities, but she never judges.  When I've been full of self doubt, she's helped me reconnect to my desire to become a mom, reminding me why becoming a single mom by choice doesn't need to be a second choice option, but rather another amazing way to become a mom.  From mantras and visualizations to practical donor websites or which prenatal vitamin to choose, Sarah is full of knowledge.  Her ability to be authentically herself - and allow you to feel completely safe in being authentically yourself is truly a special gift.  Beyond checking in during scheduled times, Sarah is always there for quick questions or a quick boost of optimism, or just to listen to a tough moment without pushing for a solution before I'm ready.  I truly can't imagine being on this journey without her, and I'm incredible grateful to call her a mentor and friend.

Feel Supported by a Mentor


When I went through this process, I spent a long time processing my emotions, letting go of my previous dreams, agonizing over whether I could afford it or handle it alone. If I'd had someone who'd walked the path before me, who could guide me and show me the way, I would have saved a lot of time and heartache. 

I'm there for you ever step of the way, helping you move forward. I've been through it all, and can ask you relevant questions, steer you to resources and be there to listen and guide you no matter what. 

I'm a certified life coach, child birth educator, postpartum doula, a former attorney and patient's rights advocate. Wherever you are at in the process, I've got you covered.


 
 
 
 
 

Feel Safe 


Through so much of this journey, it's hard to find friends who really get it. They want to support you, but often times do not know how. 

I provide a non-judgmental, open space to explore your emotions, options, and the ups and downs of this journey. I'm always there as a sounding board. I support your exploration of any uncoventional path. 

You get regular calls to dive deep and process. But you can also WhatsApp me anytime to check in, keep me posted on your progress or reach out for an emergency session whenever you need. 

 
 
 
 
 

Feel Confident and Empowered


There's nothing worse than remaining in doubt, questioning your path, or feeling overwhelmed by your situation. 

With my support, you can address your concerns rather than letting them either lay dormant in your mind, or take over your thoughts. By working through them, you can move forward with confidence that you are making an empowered choice.

Use your struggles and concerns to gain self-awareness and work towards being the best mother you can be. 




 
 
 
 

Save Time


It's easy to get bogged down, spend weeks or even months paralyzed by emotions or the logistics. Often times, time is of the essence. Too many times, women tell me they've stalled numerous times and now are up against the clock to make crucial decisions. 

I help keep you moving forward on your journey--processing your emotions and taking baby steps towards your goal. 

I assign action items, next steps and keep you accountable. 

I'm also a research junky and have been through this process myself and with many other women. I know many of the things you need to research off the top of my head, saving you hours of research.

My Philosophy​​​​

I'm trained as a somatic coach, believing that we need the wisdom of our whole bodies, including our Mind, Heart and Gut to make good decisions. I'll help you see the unique wisdom each center provides while not ignoring any aspect. By doing so, you'll calm your mind and figure out what you want and need. 


HEAD: First, you need to gather information--test your assumptions and fully understand your options. Together we work through the mental stuff--the pros and cons, the details so the analytical part of your mind can be satisfied. 


HEART: After you've gathered relevant information it's time to listen to your deepest desires and emotions. They may not be rational. Indeed, they may even be contradictory. But until you know what your heart yearns for and fears, you can't clear the way to know what you truly want. I guide you through this process, making you feel safe to delve into your inner world. 


GUT: Often referred to as the second brain, our gut is able to process more information than the cognitive mind. But, we often can't hear it's wisdom because it is buried underneath our anxiety. Really hearing the gut, requires us to quiet the mind and feel. By giving voice to the head and heart, you can begin to make space to hear the gut. Using guided meditations and other somatic exercises, I teach you how to calm your mind, and bring greater peace so you can feel and hear your gut.
