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.

This ✨new episode✨ is for anyone who has the delusional belief that the wildly successful people you admire had it easy and therefore, you’re somehow doing it wrong. You aren’t, we assure you.

Just dropped --> EP#7 "The Punk Rock Poet" w/ @stevenkotler πŸŽ™@flowresearchcollective

This episode was very special for me. This episode is a conversation between friends, fellow explorers of the mind, and misfits. There are people in your life for whom you owe a debt of gratitude to that you can never really put into words – this is the role Steven has played in my life. ✨

I love his authenticity, his sweetness, his kind and observant soul, and, of course, his wildly feral and mischievous side too! 

Find it in the link in my bio, or wherever you get your podcasts. 🎧

Discomfort is inevitable - now or later, is the choice. ✨

Certain types of Unpredictability make life interesting. Seek novelty. Play. Live at least one area code outside your comfort zone. ✨

Isn't it amazing the clarity that can come from putting it down on paper? πŸ’‘

Withholding your preferences in the name of people pleasing serves no one, least of all you. πŸ’‘
