Bring your writing to the next level.
There comes a point when you don’t want to take another workshop: you want someone by your side to help you bring your work to fruition. You already know you’re a writer, and you’re ready to do your best work.
You want to work with someone you trust and respect: someone with skill and insight who can hold you accountable to your goals, with compassion.
Working 1:1 with an experienced author is profoundly valuable for writers of all genres. My own writing coaches and mentors have been key to my success as an author.
I would be honoured to be your coach or mentor this year.
This option is for you if you’re currently struggling with impostor syndrome, resistance, or negative beliefs, and you want to break that pattern. I use Timeline Therapy, hypnotherapy, and other mindset coaching techniques to help you get out of your own way and write with more ease.
My coaching is outcome-focused and highly personalized. Our work together may include weekly or bi-weekly video calls, guided meditations, and writing exercises. It does not include craft instruction or editorial advice.
This is a major reset: you will replace your old writing habits with new, more efficient ones. Once you change your state of mind, you change your writing life for the better, for good. Your breakthrough may last 1-3 months, depending on your style and how you prefer to integrate the techniques.
“I signed up for Sarah’s Story Is a State of Mind Breakthrough because I wanted to find joy in my writing practice again. I also wanted to get back to work on my novel. After my breakthrough, I was amazed at how much my writing life had changed.
I’m more calm and peaceful. That feeling of, “I didn’t do enough writing today,” is gone. I‘m back at work on my novel and it feels wonderful. I just listened to my hypnosis, and it put the biggest smile on my face. I LOVE it. There are really no words to say how much I enjoyed my time with Sarah. It was truly magical and I’m so glad I made the decision to do this wonderful program with her!”

This option is for you if you’re currently looking for insight, intuition, critique, and thought partnership as you finish your book. My mentoring includes careful reading of your work as you write it, weekly calls with feedback, problem-solving, and editorial advice. If you ever get stuck in the middle of a story and you need to touch in, I’ll be there in your pocket, on Voxer.
I’ll be your writing partner for 14 weeks, supporting you in your process in the ways you need.
Generally, this is about a 3 month program. A sample schedule could look something like the following.*
*This plan is flexible. You and your project might need a different approach. We’ll find out what cadence works for you and your schedule, so you can work at your own pace.
Your mentorship may include these 3 components:
This is deep writing time for you to implement the changes and suggestions we discussed in the first weeks.
These weeks, we will gather and review.
live calls for accountability and guidance (30 min calls twice/week or 1 hour call weekly) and Voxer support (as needed)
“Mentorship with Sarah made my writing more vivid, more tangible, more visceral, and embodied. And I feel like I am forever changed as a writer.
Sarah uses intuition as a tool to help you find your writing. Every time I interacted with Sarah, I was surprised by how supportive and delightful she is. And in that container of support, I really rediscovered my ability to listen to what my story had to tell me.
I can’t recommend working with Sarah enough. She’s an incredible human being. Those of us who get to work with her see that immediately. She is a unicorn.”
