I am so glad you have arrived. <3
My name is Sara and I am a Somatic Coach, trained in Psychosynthesis and Somatic Experiencing ®, Embodiment and Movement Specialist, Intuitive, Introvert and Dancer. I am committed to embodied living, loving kindness, and cultivating JOY and EASE within. I am passionate about helping women uncover the freedom of living connected to their BODY and AUTHENTIC SELF, so they can walk boldly in their truth, live present, embodied, meaningful lives and manifest their goals and dreams.
Are you overwhelmed, stressed out or anxious?
Does it feel like you are trapped in a vicious cycle of BUSY with no time for you or your needs?
Are you stuck on autopilot, reacting only to the "shoulds" and "have-tos" in life?
Do you wish things were different, but are unsure about where to start?
Do you struggle to meet your goals or have trouble sustaining positive changes?
I have GOOD NEWS!
It doesn't have to be this way...
Things can be DIFFERENT. Things can SHIFT.
sometimes we need a little support on our path
embodied self: the key to freedom
Living in overdrive and in the ‘go go going,’ can often leave us very disconnected from our body and our own wants and needs. We have learned from a very young age to override our feelings, gut instincts and other ways our body communicates to us. It can feel like we are stuck in our roles and responsibilities. We then operate from a place of 'shoulds' and 'have tos' and we are often identified in a story about needing to please others.
As we start to WAKE UP and have desires to live differently, more authentically and aligned in our truth, it can be challenging. We can feel stuck. A desire for things to be different, but feeling as though something is getting in the way.
Because we have embodied these ways of surviving in the world (people pleasing, never saying no, trouble setting boundaries, suppressing feelings and desires), it will take some energy, effort and intention to get things to shift.
We need to begin to interrupt the old habituated patterns of living, thinking and being in the world.
(Re)connecting with our BODY is the KEY to uncovering our own endless SOURCE of wisdom and guidance and it is the GATEWAY to shifting how we live and breathe in the world.
The first step to take is to uncover the answer to this question:
What does grounded and centered FEEL like in my body?
We want to have a place inside, something we can sense, somewhere to return to, after we get scared, angry, say no, step out of our comfort zone, get excited, feel stressed etc. If we don’t know what it FEELS like in our body, how are we going to get there?
The more we know and experience this embodied, grounded, connected sense of self, the easier it is to find it in times of chaos or fullness. We want it to be a familiar place.
Making the space and time to ground back into an embodied sense of self, is critical for replenishing energy, spirit and building the capacity to continue to handle all that is unfolding.
WHAT IS SOMATIC COACHING WITH SARA?
Life is a journey and evolution. Sometimes we need some gentle guidance and support on our path as we make the greatest changes or navigate transitions, the unexpected, stress, overwhelm, negative thinking and self-doubts, illness, and/or chronic pain. We all have an intelligence, an inner knowing, a WISDOM, living inside of us, which is GUIDING us, gently NUDGING us towards living a full life rooted in purpose, meaning and dynamic EASE. We also have a NERVOUS SYSTEM that is biologically wired to keep us safe and can take control of our physical bodies, often out of our awareness, when it is responding to a situation, memory, smell, sound, interaction, environment, etc. It is important to have an understanding of how our survival responses can come into play as we negotiate our path. How do we find and connect to a centered place within the chaos? What IS our purpose? What DO we value? What HAS meaning?
How do YOU want to be living?
Together, we will examine what is working in your life and what you would like to be different and SHIFT. Tuning into that wise, centered place of self, you will learn how to recognize, listen and follow its core guidance. We will clear out any blocks, resistance, fears, or anxieties that are getting in the way of you meeting your goals and/or trusting yourself. You will lean how to smoothly ride the waves of life transitions, your emotions, your sensations, and your feelings, instead of fighting against what is present. We will get your body and mind in conscious awareness of each other to help you walk on your path EMBODIED with more PRESENCE and with more EASE!
I hold the space, bear witness and provide compassionate accountability for you to align with what is most true, set intentions and goals, and confidently manifest your dreams! My one-on-one sessions with my clients are held in-person at my Belchertown, MA office and online over Skype/Zoom/FaceTime.

Is Somatic Coaching The Right Fit For You?
My clients are women who are CURIOUS about how to (re)connect more deeply with their truest self. They are starting to realize (or already have realized!) that the traditional way they have been living their life, is no longer working. They are wondering what all of this "nervous system" stuff is about. They are READY and motivated to make some changes. They may not be sure about how to get there, but are willing to put the time and effort into creating the space for SELF EXPLORATION.
They may have identified GOALS or DREAMS or SHIFTS they would like to make, or are just starting to pay attention to an inner knowing that things can be different. They are committed to examining what naturally surfaces and going deep when needed. These women are looking for guidance, tools, strategies, empathetic support, organization, accountability, and inspiration to help them on their journey.
