Meaningful change for a meaningful life.

Hi, I’m Dr. Sarah Sarkis

I’m a psychologist by training, and an executive and performance consultant 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.

I was recently a guest on the Minds & Mics podcast. 🎙

We talked all about the adaptive unconscious, self-sabotaging behavior, attachment patterns, and therapy vs performance coaching. 🧠

This is why I tell everyone I work with that observation is key. 

All will be revealed simply through observing ourselves. ✨

If I’m honest, I wish it did belong to fate.  I’m constantly looking to shirk responsibility in ways both obvious and covert...but the truth is, it’s on me.  The choice belongs to you too. I’m rooting for you. 💥👊🏼

Are you holding on to something that's no longer serving you, and perhaps even holding you back? 💡

The start of a new year is a great opportunity to assess what's working in your life - and what isn't - and make changes accordingly. ✨

I discussed this and more on my last appearance on the @unmistakablecreative podcast - you can find it wherever you get your podcasts, if you're interested in diving deeper. 🎙

What can you trim out of your life to free up space and mental energy as you begin 2021? 💡
