"I came to coaching because I felt it was time to dig in and do the personal work that would carry me into the next phase of my professional life. What a profound experience it was! Sarah helped me understand the intimate connections between my personal and professional growth. Her ability to listen and reflect back is extraordinary, and her mastery of multiple approaches and tools made the journey exciting and creative, even when the work was hard. I have achieved a new level of wholeness through this experience. Thank you, Sarah!"
"Working with Sarah this year was a gift. She is an amazing listener and coach. She helped me to recognize both strengths and barriers in myself that I didn't see, and she helped me with tools I continue to use in my pursuit of balance and stronger communication in my work."
"Next Chapter Coaching has been the absolute smartest investment of time, energy, and money in my life. Sarah has accompanied me with compassion and strength as I journey towards a better version of myself. Sarah is worth her weight in gold and I recommend her to anyone interested in going to their best next level. She is a caring, professional, voice-of-reasoning-champion available to cheer you on your way."
"Sarah’s ability to ignite truths, challenges and pragmatic action gifted me with thoughts about my potential that I would not have arrived at without her skilled coaching. I am better acquainted with my inner warrior, possess more limitless thinking and recognize the importance of having an accountability partner as a conduit to personal growth. Sarah’s sincerity, insight and calm approach prove powerful tools for those open to growth."
“I sought Sarah out to help me align my inner with my outer, and vice versa, and keep me accountable. In just a few sessions, Sarah has helped me to get clearer on what resonates and is real for me, has helped me define my dominant traits and think about how these support me in defining what I want to be doing as I plan my next act. I appreciate Sarah’s insight and her dogged way of reflecting back to me what I am thinking but maybe not saying. I am so grateful for her leadership and coaching in our work together."

"Sarah helped me and the coaches of Adult Basic Education for College and Career (ABECC) to develop a coaching program that directs instructors' thinking so that they are able to make positive changes that lead to student success. Through being coached by Sarah, I experienced first hand how we hold the answers to our obstacles but can reach them more quickly with the support of a skilled coach. Her modeling, training, and resources were invaluable. She allowed us flexibility in setting the agenda for our meetings but held us accountable like a good coach does."

"In a short period of time Sarah has helped me balance my personal and professional life. Through different mindfulness practices, I have learned how to pay attention to my body, especially tension that I might be feeling and that I didn’t notice before. I have learned to relax and concentrate with simple breathing exercises that help me navigate complex situations. On my first session, I told Sarah I wanted to be more organized and feel more confident in my every day endeavors. It has been a wonderful experience receiving coaching from Sarah and looking at certain life situations from a different perspective. Most importantly, I have learned to pay attention to my body and my feelings. After my coaching, I have a greater sense of personal optimism and empowerment. With Sarah I discovered my self-actualization, which has aided me to live life fully with courage and confidence, allowing me to always come from a place of strength. Thank you Sarah for teaching me how to master my full potential."
