I am Sarah. A peaceful parenting coach for amazing women who want to become the Mama they really want to be so they can cultivate deep connection with their children while shifting the energy of the family to be that of peace, love & flow.
I am also a Mama. A twin Mama, in the thick of raising two beautiful, loving & sweet kiddos with my husband.
I believe the best guidance we can give our children is the deep connection we cultivate with them. From this connected place, they develop a strong sense of security & trust which leads to self-love & independence.
I believe all children deserve respect, autonomy & as much freedom as possible. I believe in honoring children for who they are. I believe in adjusting our lives (as much as possible) in effort to respect their needs and natural rhythms. I believe in nourishing self-directed learning.
To help children be raised in a way that honors & celebrates who they are, so they grow up loving, knowing & trusting themselves completely.
To support Mamas in cultivating peace & connection with their children. Together we are creating an environment where children are peacefully guided to navigate the world authentically while taking amazing care of ourselves.
My work with Mamas involves diving deep into themselves, peeling back the layers of their thoughts and beliefs about parenting. This is not about “fixing” our children. There is nothing wrong with them.
It’s about honoring who they are.
It’s is about shifting how we think about and respond to our children.
It’s about empowering our children vs. having power over them.
It’s about meeting everyone’s needs through mutual understanding, communication and collaboration.
There is no room for punishment here. They are human beings after all, not just robots that need to mindlessly obey, especially not at the cost of connection with their parents.
A tall, freaking order. I know. Here’s how we do it…
I take a stand for your vision. You show up in a big way. I ask powerful questions meant to facilitate deep reflection. And together, we work to cultivate connection, patience, and trust (in ourselves & our children) by practicing EXTREME self-care, mindfulness & getting REAL support.
How else can we bring the best version of ourselves to our children when we put ourselves last and/or do not meet our own needs? And what better way to model self-love for our children?
I know firsthand how draining being a Mama can be. You see, I have twins. When I became a Mama, I almost immediately began to drown. How could I possibly keep two tiny humans alive & happy while taking care of myself, keep up my house, work my (lackluster) part time job and keep a marriage alive?
Despite having these two amazing, little beings that I wanted fiercely, I was completely unfulfilled. Something had to change. And fast.
I didn’t know where to start but intuitively knew that I had to begin making self-care an absolute priority. At first, this looked like daily meditation and journaling. This gave me energy and clarity to move forward.
Two things then happened: I took a leap of faith and quit my job to become a certified health coach. I also discovered unschooling which led me to the concept of peaceful parenting. And I never looked back.
From there, I combined my coaching with my passion for raising kids peacefully. I am forever continuing my personal growth journey as a human being and as a Mama, which includes ongoing trainings, certifications, reading (always reading) and never-ending self-reflection. There are still challenging moments of course, but I find that there is so much more peace and connection with my babes.
And I must say, I absolutely LOVE what I do.
I am incredibly passionate and committed to helping other Mamas climb out of this do-it-all, put-myself-last, snap-at-my-kids hole that we so often manage to dig ourselves into. There is another way. A more peaceful, loving, feel good way. And I am here to help guide you. Not only is it incredibly rewarding to help Mamas in this way, but it makes my heart so happy to know how much our children are benefitting as well.
