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.

Time has this funny way of playing tricks with your memory once someone is gone. The things I thought I would remember about my mom are a distant memory, at best, while the innocuous and most unusual aspects of her have remained untouched. 🌿

Which of your habits serve the greater good you seek for your life? And which don't? πŸ’‘

Shame is a time travelerβ€” it moves through families, cultures, systems, and organizations. ✨

It shapes us down deep where unconscious patterns rule the roost. πŸ‘‡πŸΌ
