Now is the time to say:
"Enough! I'm done!",
and, "I'm ready!"
Picture it. YOU - saying, "No more! No more of other people getting to define for me how to think, feel, or decide things; no more doubting myself; no more settling and making concessions!
I'm ready to advocate for myself; ready to feel safe and empowered; ready to trust the knowledge I've gained."
It's my work to guide and support you as you step into your power.
THE EMPOWERMENT SESSIONS
IS FOR YOU
IF YOU RESONATE WITH -
Looking around you - your life, career, relationships - and knowing, down deep, that there's more; that YOU have more inside of you; that you WANT more. In fact, you're damn near desperate for more... and your deep knowing is stirring.
And yet, there are few places you can go to understand WHY you feel this way, because it doesn't exactly add up. And there are even fewer places you can go where you feel safe enough to admit and talk about these things, as well as explore the reasons along with the solutions; a place where you are empowered to free yourself and begin to trust yourself.
But I see you...
"You're not the same as you were before. You were much more... MUCHIER. You've lost your Muchness."
- The Mad Hatter, Alice in Wonderland
This is what gaslighting, in its various forms, does to us. And yet, I SEE YOU. You may have, for a time, had your light dimmed, but I SEE YOU...
You are loving, dedicated, loyal, giving, empathetic, passionate, brave, fierce; you're a protector of those you love;
you've worked hard to be a good, kind, and healthy person - and you're willing to continue to do the hard, messy work to be even better; you don't shy away from the journey before you.
AND, you're ready - ready to let go of all that has dimmed your light and robbed you of your muchness; ready to claim your freedom and peace.
You want a place that is secure enough to hold all of you, because you are beautifully complex, and have a variety of needs -
you need a guide who understands trauma;
a space that balances safety and curiosity;
a community that provides validation, solidarity, encouragement, hope - and of course - a bit of fun, laughter, and sass;
a place that honors all that you are.
AND you want an experience that is proven -
a path you can follow; a path others have blazed;
a trustworthy experience that you can lean into and on; an experience that will challenge you, inspire you, awaken you.
I was at the end of a very long, hard road and was grasping for anything that would help me come outside of myself. I would have given anything to not be in my own skin - I think that may have been one of the first things I said to Sarah.
Without getting into too much detail I will say that my sense of self was a bit fragmented and I had very little trust in others, much less myself.
Not only did Sarah help me LOVE my own skin, she made me realize that I have the power and choice to appreciate me! I learned to forgive not only myself, but let go of the pain that had been inflicted on me.
Sarah helped me envision a better me, and worked with me to become my better version. For this I am finally beginning to feel WHOLE.
She literally saved my life and I will be forever thankful!
THE EMPOWERMENT SESSIONS PROGRAM IS YOUR SECURE PATH.
This is not for the timid... IT IS for those who are ready to "explore the darkness in order to discover the infinite power of our light" (Brene Brown). It's not for those just looking for a course with a coach to whom they can ask questions... IT IS for those who are looking for a program whose approach to information truly facilitates transformation. It's not for those who are undecided about their life... IT IS for those who want a different way to live, and are ready to give themselves permission to invest all they have into attaining the changes they are capable of.
Are you ready
to choose yourself, and
start your journey?
WHAT IS DECONSTRUCTING GASLIGHTING™
THE EMPOWERMENT SESSIONS?
The Empowerment Sessions is a 12 week immersive experience designed to offer you a space to sit with the information you learn and anchor it DEEP! Through creative, outside-the-box, consistent engagement, you shift from looking outside yourself for the answers, to INSIDE yourself to your knowing. The Empowerment Sessions combines monthly one on one coaching, weekly group coaching, and eight learning/reflective/celebration guides.
You are invited.
Journey with us
I can not stress enough the impact of group coaching.
But don't take it from me...
"The impact of the solidarity that being a part of a group of peers has... some days it's the difference between whether or not I get out of bed. Knowing that you (Sarah) and the ladies are there to reach out to - that's huge. I did not ever expect the group aspect of having these ladies to reach out to along the way would be such a huge part of my healing."
- Annie H
We work through these weekly elements in a variety of contexts; they are anchored in the more you engage them.
Week 1: Group Forming: We begin by creating a safe container with each other. We'll have fun with rapid-fire get to know you questions, form connection by sharing our needs and dreams, and establish solidarity as we state our intentions for the journey we're embarking on together.
Week 2: The Methods: Increase your ability to recognize gaslighting behaviors by deconstructing the methods. We answer the question: how can I tell...? We will use these to create RED FLAGS that alert us to gaslighting in the future.
Week 3: The Techniques: Leaning in a bit, we identify the seven techniques often used to gaslight. We address the question: "Why/How does this happen?"
Week 4: The Tactics: Taking out our microscopes (not literally, lol), we zoom in on the finer details of how gaslighting occurs. This is where we talk about things like: love-bombing, mirroring, double-speak, and so much more, and connect them to the different techniques and methods.
Week 5: The Roles: Deepen your connection to your gut by identifying the different roles a gaslighter may take on. We link the ties between the tactics, techniques and traits the different roles exemplify.
Week 6: Why We're Vulnerable: Explore the ways both externally and internally we are pre-disposed to being vulnerable to gaslighting. We answer the question, "Why does this happen to me?". You use this awareness to alert yourself to the areas you need to pay special attention to as you engage those around you. You don't CHANGE who you are - you value who you are, and now see your vulnerabilities as your responsibility and right to "protect" (boundaries).
Week 7: Gaslighting Risks and Traps: This crucial week you dive into your internal world and reveal the reasons you get sucked into the patterns of gaslighting experiences; it's where you confront the question, "Why do I do this?", and learn how to avoid falling into the traps and stay in your knowing and your power.
Week 8: Deconstructing Gaslighting: With your new understanding you are now able to see how all the moving parts work together: Roles-methods-techniques-tactics-vulnerabilities-traps. This knowledge gives you the clarity to see where and how you BREAK THE CYCLE - faster... it's like getting the superpower of x-ray vision: you can now see through the bullshit (Sassy Sarah wanted to come out to play on this one! )
Week 9: Relationship Healing: This is where we tackle one of the hardest questions: "Will they change?". By taking a look at how REAL change sounds, looks, and feels, you get a CLEAR picture of what YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO EXPECT from someone who says they're "working on it."
Week 10: Why We Stay: Honesty, courage, vulnerability, self-awareness, grace, tenacity. These are the things you'll tap into this week as you take a look at the reasons you are staying in a relationship where there is gaslighting happening; you call out any reasons that are NOT in alignment with your values, and identify where values conflicts are keeping you stuck.
Week 11: Options Moving Forward: "What do I do now?" is the question we address this week. With a blueprint for how to move forward, you learn to lean into not only your head and heart, but your body as well; you are equipped to gather the information you need to not only stay in your power, but deepen it.
Week 12: Celebration: This final week is for us to bear witness to the awakening each person has gone through. Validation, joy, recognition... we finish this journey the same way we started it - with intention and dedication to know ourselves, love ourselves, and trust ourselves.
“I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am.”
— Sylvia Plath
It’s been 4 years (strong) and I gotta tell you…I’m still using the tools I learned from you!! I’ve been know to say, and with a smile: I refuse to ever be a victim of gaslighting so don’t even try.” I am fully aware of all things around me. The boundaries I learned from you are still in place! Thank you so much!

"Before Sarah's coaching I looked outside of myself for validation and didn't trust my own reality. Now, with a deeper understanding of how others gaslight us AND how we can gaslight ourselves, I know myself, love myself, and trust myself, and only put energy into the relationships that do the same. Her coaching taught me to raise the bar for my relationships and authentically live my best life as my true self."
