Hi, I’m Dr. Sarah Sarkis

I am a psychologist, writer, and performance consultant with a private practice in Honolulu, Hawaii (though it won’t take you long to discover I’m a Boston girl at heart). My integrated approach is big on science, low on bullshit, empowering my clients to achieve long term change and growth through an eclectic blend of psychology, neurobiology, and functional medicine.

I’m here to partner with you in your quest for a sense of wellness. 

My blog, The Padded Room, is your virtual safe space to help you manage the jarring realities of life. Here, you’ll find a soft landing for life’s harshest truths.

In addition to my private consulting practice, I am a performance consultant with The Flow Research Collective (FRC) founded by Steven Kotler. I am also a featured writer for the FRC’s monthly newsletter, which explores the outer reaches of human excellence.
