Sarah helped my wife and I work through some difficult issues we were facing, and she taught us how to communicate and listen to each other better. I think we did 5 or 6 sessions with Sarah and feel we got our money's worth. We would recommend Sarah to any couple in need of quality council in the LA area.Apr 5, 2017VerifiedSarah P.'s reply

My partner and I were in a repetitive cycle of negative interactions. We were considering ending our relationship. I would respond to my partner in an emotional and defensive manner. Sarah taught me to use rational thinking before responding. She taught my partner to respond in a more patient and empathetic manner. As a result, we now have more positive interactions as we continue to gain a better understanding of each other. In addition we both have really improved in our abilities to meet each other's emotional needs.Apr 4, 2016
We reached out to Sarah a year ago in need of finding help with our relationship. We are a multiracial couple that was dealing with miscommunication, betrayal and had basically given up on our relationship. Sarah was able to coach us with improving our communication by using several tools that we practice with her assistance. We still try to focus on her wise words of encouragement and how she believed in us. We would not have made it without her passion to helping us get through a very tough time. We miss her very much and have not been able to find a replacement that cares like her.Mar 10, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?At the present moment, I am charging $85. per hour. However, my fee can be negotiable depending on number of sessions per month and circumstances. My family and I moved recently to the Marina Del Rey area of California from Florida.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I enjoy hearing and assessing the customer's concerns, goals, background history, relationship history, and support system. Then, we work and partner together to achieve the customer's goals. I strongly encourage customers to be accountable to their goals by developing specific micro-steps and goals leading toward their ultimate goals and passions.
