There are times when we find ourselves metaphorically stuck on the side of the road. It can be discouraging and lonely to be without the fuel or energy to get back on a path that aligns with our values. Instead, we may battle a relentless loop of familiar thoughts that keep us stuck. We may lose our connection to self while trying to stay connected to others. Possibly there are parts of our story that test our view of ourselves. We may be relating to ourselves conditionally, believing we don’t have the heart, brains, or courage.
Sara believes that human beings inherently have everything they need to navigate their journey. As they activate these qualities, individuals relate to their story differently, and find what is golden about it. As individuals give themselves permission to heal parts of themselves with curiosity and self compassion, they find that what was initially limiting is now emboldening.
Individuals can relate differently to their thoughts and behaviors and fully arrive at experiencing their emotions. Rather than falling back on defenses, or behaviors that may help individuals survive moments, Sarah values helping individuals to fully live moments. She sees it as a great privilege to support individuals as they feel “at home” in themselves.
Healing & Life Transformation Coach
Ali is passionate about partnering with clients to reclaim their power, reconnect to their true selves and help them thrive from the inside out.
She believes that every person is whole, complete and enough. Yet many of us doubt this. Our internal programming is out of alignment with this message. Often we go about the world feeling disconnected, stuck or like there’s something wrong with us. There’s not.
As a certified trauma-informed coach and yoga instructor, Ali senses when unaligned messages, past beliefs and patterns show up as roadblocks on the path to creating a meaningful life.
Ali is passionate about holding safe space to compassionately face and uproot these messages. She’ll help you find clarity in who you want to be and partner with you to create approachable and sustainable actions to get you there. You’ll explore values alignment, boundaries, coping and communication skills plus more.
Ali will work right alongside you as an advocate, cheerleader, accountability partner and coach as you reconnect, reclaim and thrive toward the life you desire.
She has over fifteen years experience as an allied health and wellness professional- educating and easing clients toward better self-care and out of anxiety, seven years of facilitating yoga and mindfulness, and two plus years of coaching. She is a graduate of Tara Mohr’s Playing Big Facilitators Program. She holds certifications in trauma-informed yoga and embodied social justice education. She specializes in working with clients navigating transitions in relationship to self, self identity, faith, career, values alignment, and life fulfillment.
