Sarah appreciates, supports, and respects me as her client. Any good relationship has those elements anyway but Sarah adds a higher level of competence and professionalism that I admire. She doesn't rush through her work and allows time for things to be talked out. Nicely done and much appreciated.

Sarah has been able to connect with me. Remind me of the things I needed to hear. Understand my struggles without any judgment. Having her during the darkest days of my life have been a blessing. I would definitely recommend her!
