Sarah has experienced the pain of infidelity first hand and she knows what it is like to be in the belly of the beast and the fallout from such an experience. Several years ago, Sarah lost her home and many of her assets because of her ex-partner's choices with the other woman. Sarah has recovered, but also recognizes that recovery can be a life-long and life-changing process. She hopes to help you recover too.
But in addition to her own personal experiences in recovering from infidelity, she has the added element of having a background in Psychology. Sarah completed graduate work in Clinical Psychology in early 2012 and has been working part-time toward a PsyD in Clinical Psychology. She has completed training in how to work with trauma, trauma bonds, how to work through family of origin issues, how to overcome abuse and addiction, and finally how to make marriages successful.

Look What This Person Had to Say About Working With Sarah...
"Sarah P. has helped me in such a way that gives me hope. It's not everyday that I can talk to someone about a problem and come away feeling like, "Ok I understand what is going on and everything is going to be alright here." Instead of making the problem seem insurmountable, she makes me realize even the biggest issues can be solved. I have talked to Sarah P. about marriage, career situations, childhood baggage, and other deeply personal matters. She is a skillful counselor and life coach who is insightful, perceptive, and respectful. Gets to the root of the problem to expose it so that it can be dealt with without making it seem more scary. When talking to her about my marriage, she helped me see the situation in ways that made me feel empowered, not helpless, and she exposed what was going on in such a manner that made me feel it could be dealt with instead of avoided. After we talk I always feel that my fear has been addressed and I come away with a new slant on things that enables me to think in a new and better way about the situation. Sarah P. has a knack for exposing the problem but never makes me feel helpless, but instead encouraged and empowered."- Karen M.
Here's What a Few More of Sarah's Clients Have to Say...
"My partner and I had been considering separating. It was as if we were giving up on each other. Why try to fix what is broken when you could have something new and shiny? We could never have been more wrong. Thank you Sarah for letting us find our way back to the love and affection that we thought was gone forever. Thank for saving us from a life without each other."Aaron (& Rose)
"Sarah has a way about her that draws out my deepest concerns and fears and allows me to share my worries without feeling judged. She has always made me feel at ease and I feel an actual sense of physical calm when I am speaking with her. She always gives good and practical advice. I always come away from our sessions feeling hopeful and more confident. As we have continued to meet, this feeling of confidence and hope in myself and my marriage has grown very strong. I am becoming the person I need to be to be present in my marriage. Most of all, I have figured out that changing me has changed everything around me."Diana
"Sarah was there for me when I needed help with overwhelming anxiety and depression. Her guidance and ability to make me feel listened to helped me survive it. While I waited and waited for my physician to find the right medicine and dosage to help me I ultimately did crawl out of my terrible depression and was able to continue to use the tools that Sarah helped teach me to cope with the individual stressors that life throws my way."Patricia
"I have always dealt with anxiety and chronic fear and never knew why. This fear has been a ball and chain for almost 60 years now. I was severely abused by my dad growing up. He would spank me anytime I made the smallest mistake and the belt was a fixture in our house too. It caused me to emotionally shut down. I also felt that when I became an adult it was all up to me to overcome it. Before speaking to Sarah, I never realized how far abuse could be carried into adulthood and how it could affect everything. I have always laid the blame on myself for perpetuating any fear. During our first meeting, Sarah made the connection back to my childhood and a huge lightbulb went on. Now I know why and I don't blame myself. The burden suddenly evaporated because she showed me why I am not to blame. I also divorced a couple of years ago and wish I could have understood all of these things before. My marriage might have been saved but who knows. Sarah also gave me a relationship "bill of rights" during our first meeting and it has shaken my world up at the foundations. I have passed it along to my daughter and sisters too and they have also been helped."Barbara
"The last 2 years have been the hardest of my life! I, like everyone else never expected my wife to cheat. I have spent a lot of time trying to figure things out and although it doesn’t help with much of the pain, Sarah has bean able to help me make sense of what has happened in my marriage, and with that comes relief. Sarah’s look at our whole marriage as well as family history has shown me just how complicated affairs are. Sarah’s ability to very quickly analyze our very complicated past, and provide very direct answers without a lot of fluff is part of what makes her amazing at her calling."Glen
