Independent Practitioner

Sara Laughlin, MS, Life Coach

Sara believes that at our very deep and meaningful core we know what we want; that we intuitively possess the wisdom to grow and expand into a meaningful life of our own design.

Sara has learned the many ways in which this simple natural process of self unfolding can be diverted, manipulated, lost , bullied, shamed, broken, confused or usurped. Often we are left at the point where we doubt our own ability to trust and believe. Such a loss is tragic, but does not have to be permanent.

Sara is a trained and certified graduate of the Hartford Family Institute’s Body-centered Gestalt Therapy Professional Program. This type of psychology embodies transformation of self and through such transformation an ability to feel fully alive in a supportive, nurturing and mindful environment. Tears and laughter are welcome.

Along with Sara’s gentle manner and sense of humor, she teaches her clients how to feel empowered. As she affirms each client’s struggles, Sara assists them in creating and bringing forth special meaning and purpose in their lives. Midlife is a time to develop some real passion, and it could be about discovering a new career or a brand new hobby. Her belief is that the midlife stage of development needs to be acknowledged, welcomed, and understood. You work collaboratively to turn these struggles into opportunities

Sara changed the direction of her life in 1999. She decided that seeking out a career that would bring about her aliveness is what she needed at that point in her midlife. In 2005, after completing graduate school and a one-year comprehensive internship as a Mental Health Clinician, she became a Licensed Psychotherapist. Sara understands what this stage of life is all about as she continues to grow and change all the time.

Sara offers a Support/Therapy Group for Midlife Women every Thursday evening from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. Sara can be reached at (860) 561-4021.
