Sara is a masterful constructor of a new consciousness (awareness) that fits a healthy reality if its necessary. Sara is highly intuitive and socially conscious so she can help a large demographic. She helps you to realize that situations don't need to change, but teaches an all inclusive point of view considering the narrative of others. Sara is safe. Sara is honest with compassion and you should hire her as a training consultant for therapists who aren’t doing so well. Sara is a life therapist for me.
