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.

Pathological accommodating starts in childhood, expands during adolescence, and by the time we are adults, if you haven’t addressed it in your life, its tentacles are everywhere. 🤯

What you resist, persists. 

Accepting and working with this moment, this situation, this experience - rather than resisting it - can be transformative. ✨
