Frequently Asked Questions

If you are a working mom who is looking for more, needs changes in their life so they can focus on their career, or wants the next step in their career and aren’t sure how to find it, coaching could be right for you.

While I am a career coach, I find that in supporting working moms, we often need to look at the whole picture- kids, family dynamics, personal goals – before we can dive into your career and success – which is great! It gives a more complete picture, and offers the opportunity for success in all aspects of your life. 

Actually, no! While my programs are targeted at working moms, I’ve worked with men, women without kids, and younger women considering kids in their future. If you connect with me and my mission, I’m available to help. 

Yes! I’ve coached many SAHMs, either looking to get back into the workforce, exploring their passion and next steps, and even on their health. I work from a values based approach, so it that appeals to you – mom, working or otherwise – I’d love to connect. 

Most sessions are 80 minutes long, and I find that at the beginning, clients often want to meet once a week to keep up the momentum, but as we get further along into the goal setting and execution,it spreads out to every other week in order to give you more time to accomplish the items on your list. On average a program will take 2-3 months to complete in its entirety.

Depending on the program that you choose, you should come away with clarity and confidence about your life, values and direction. With this, you will find success, freedom, happiness, a high level of connectedness to yourself and your partner, and better family dynamics. 

All sessions are with Sara, but sometimes I may send you additional resources or assessments that can be found online for free to provide additional information during our sessions. 

Payment is due in total upfront. If you have any concerns about this, you can contact me directly here.

Once you finalize payment, I’ll send you a coaching contract with scheduling and confidentiality details. After that is received, I’ll send you a questionnaire to complete before our first session, and a calendly link to book our time together. And then the fun starts!
