Meaningful change for a meaningful life.

Hi, I’m Dr. Sarah Sarkis

I’m a psychologist by training, and a certified executive and performance coach by practice. I also moonlight as a writer and speaker. My integrated approach is big on science, low on bullshit.

I’m available for individual, team, and organizational collaboration.

SERVICES I OFFER

I provide individual therapy to people who are interested in exploring how and why they feel, think, and behave in certain prescribed patterns. Together, we will create a partnership through which we will have an opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings, both past and present, allowing you to rethink old patterns, rework old solutions, and find a more meaningful and empowered sense of self.

We will create a space for you to begin to explore and listen to your body and what it is communicating to you with a new set of emotional skills. This approach will enhance your ability to manage your feelings and observe your experiences in an entirely different manner.

I am available for Out of Pocket (OOP) consultations and would be happy to discuss a sliding scale fee. I do not accept insurance policies in Boston. An initial intake session generally runs 60-75 minutes. Subsequent therapy sessions usually run 45-55 minutes depending on your emotional needs.

Performance consulting is an exciting frontier combining neurobiology, psychology, and the eastern practices of mindfulness and meditation to access team and individual peak performance. In this approach, different from therapy, we will work together to create a culture of corporate wellness that leverages the current neuroscience on creativity and “flow” states to help you identify and target areas of team cohesion and moral, time management, and creative and collaborative problem solving. I work with individuals and groups within corporate and organizational settings on specific targeted areas of enhancement, as a way to bolster productivity and your bottom line.

Your corporate culture determines your potential for sustained peak performance.Β Contact me to explore how we might better optimize your corporate culture.

This is how fear and self-sabotage work - they hold you hostage inside and don't set you free until you shine the light of awareness on them. πŸ’‘

Whether you're into affirmations or not (perhaps you call them mantras), what you say and repeat to yourself matters. ✨

Could you instead use the fear as a source of fuel?

Every word of this is true. 

Eventually, as you heal, you will no longer be drawn to the same dynamics. ✨

The truth is, learning to say No to ourselves has proven to be even harder than saying No to others. πŸ’‘
