"My practice provides a safe place for you to improve your mental and physical health by creating a lasting shift in mindset thus improving overall quality of life so you can feel more like your true self".
Sarah has been a practicing occupational therapist for the past ten years. Throughout this time, Sarah has observed, professional and personally, that women need a safe place to share, heal and grow.

Focus on women's mental health, pelvic health and self-awareness, are are given the attention they deserve. When you walk away from this experience, you will take with you functional, personalized goals.
