My specialties include:
(women whose moms have died)
* Working with Motherless Daughters is a unique specialty for me, borne out of my own experience of losing my mom when I was 28 years old. She died unexpectedly, five days after my wedding. That experience has shaped me, both professionally and personally, in ways I could never have imagined. Motherless Daughters face special challenges as they grieve and grow through the loss of their moms. I consider it a privilege to support that growth and assist in empowering Motherless Daughters to live their best lives going forward, in a way that helps them live out their mom’s legacy.
One of my Motherless Daughters clients put it aptly when she said:
“Sarah understands my journey, because her story is woven from a matching fabric.”
I moved to the USA with my family when I was eight years old. As an immigrant from India, I also understand the unique challenges that immigrants may face. I often work with immigrants to support them in their journeys as well.
In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my husband and our five rescued pets, and I love to spend time with our adult kids when they come home to visit. I have several hobbies, including disco dancing, writing, and improv.
I also like professional speaking and earned my Distinguished Toastmaster award through Toastmasters International in 2018. Toastmasters is an amazing organization that helps people develop their speaking and leadership skills, through 350,000 clubs around the globe!!
I encourage all my clients to find and pursue their passions, too!!
I have been featured several times as a mental health expert on Pittsburgh news outlets, including KDKA-TV News and KDKA Radio. Getting the word out about mental health has always been important to me, and I look for opportunities to do that whenever I can!!
