Every person deserves to live the life of freedom that comes with truly knowing themselves;
To experience the unburdening of any and every thing that is not in alignment with their authentic selves;
To embody peace and clarity as they stand rooted in a deep sense of love for, and trust in, themselves.
And I am dedicated to provide the space, education, tools and experiences for anyone who is ready to embrace their awakening.
Relationship coach, educator, facilitator, host of Deconstructing Gaslighting™ podcast and speaker.
I provide a secure base that allows people the safety to explore beyond what they've known. Deeply relational in my approach to coaching, I bring my sass, love for laughter, and creativity into the work I do. Using integrative, multi-dimensional experiences and tools, I equip people to become experts on themselves.
My lens, unapologetically, is one of gaslighting. I coach people through being able to recognize and step out of range of gaslighting by others. But I don't stop there. Getting curious about how we have internalized gaslighting, I coach people in unbecoming all the things they we never meant to be; in discovering the the core of who they are (authentic self); in nurturing their authentic selves through mastering their authentic power. This is my signature E³ process.
Hi, I'm Sarah
After eight years of Deconstructing Gaslighting™ and over 6,000 hours of coaching clients, I have found that these three components are essential to finding, and living in, that blissful place of freedom that comes from knowing, and being able to stay connected to, your authentic self. Here's a snapshot of my signature E³ process...
Sarah is a certified life and relationship coach who has been coaching individuals and groups professionally for nine years. During that time, she has contracted with numerous helping professionals, spoken at national conferences, and been invited to speak on podcasts, all from the lens of her gaslighting expertise.
In 2021, her gaslighting specialty is culminating in her soon to be released Deconstructing Gaslighting™ offerings: an app, podcast, free workshop and signature program – all aimed at empowering others to better understand and identify gaslighting in their lives and relationships.
Sarah’s passion to empower others to transform their lives fuels her work with her clients and pushes her to continue developing new programs on the cutting edge of helping others grow to know, trust, and love themselves more than they knew was possible.
My Professional Bio
What's up with the dragonfly?
I had a magical experience with dragonflies that led me to search their meaning. What I found convinced me the universe had sent me a manifestation of the work that I do. And in that moment, the dragonfly became the mascot for the journey I lead my clients through...
"In almost every part of the world, the Dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization.
The change that is often referred to has its source in mental and emotional maturity and understanding the deeper meaning of life. The Dragonfly’s scurrying flight across water represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life. The Dragonfly moves with elegance and grace. The Dragonfly is iridescent both on its wings and body. Iridescence shows itself in different colors depending on the angle and how the light falls on it. The magical property of iridescence is also associated with the discovery of one’s own abilities by unmasking the real self and removing the doubts one casts on his/her own sense of identity.
The Dragonfly normally lives most of its life as a nymph or an immature. It flies only for a fraction of its life. This symbolizes and exemplifies the virtue of living in the moment and living life to the fullest. By living in the moment you are aware of who you are, where you are, what you are doing, what you want, what you don’t, and to make informed choices on a moment-to-moment basis. The eyes of the Dragonfly symbolize the uninhibited vision of the mind and the ability to see beyond the limitations of the human self. Dragonfly’s can be a symbol of self that comes with maturity. They can symbolize going past self-created illusions that limit our growth and ability to change.
The Dragonfly has been a symbol of happiness, new beginnings and change for many centuries. The Dragonfly means hope, change, and love."
Still Curious? Here are some fun facts:
Since I bring so much of myself into my coaching, here's a bit more about me you might find helpful or interesting to know about me:
I grew up in Wisconsin, lived all over northern California from 18-37 years of age, and have called Austin, TX home since 2012.
While I didn't start professionally life coaching until I was 37, my "former life" as a pastor's wife had me in many mentoring and teaching roles that primed me for this profession.
Sassy Sarah likes to come out and play, when appropriate (okay, and every once in awhile when it's not appropriate).
I identify as queer, and am married to the love of my life, Melanie. (I'm the lucky one).
Beyoncé is a QUEEN, and she's a valid choice for any occasion.
While the first third of my life was dominated by conservative Christian ideology, I no longer adhere to that construct. I consider myself a spiritual person on a journey of knowing truth in every facet.
Fuck is one of my favorite words.
I'm a Taurus, and a Taurus through and through!
I'm a Manifesting Generator with sacral authority, and I'm learning all the time how to live from this place energetically.
I have six tattoos, and have plans for a whole sleeve in the not too distant future.
I love analogies, and use them all. the. time.
Last year my wife and I remodeled our garage into an in-law sweet for my parents. I am now a tiler, plumber, electrician, painter... basically I could now do an HGTV show: "Remodel you house and life with Sarah Morales". (LOL. JK. It's going to be a long time before I remodel anything again. LOL)
Because information is power, ESPECIALLY when it comes to gaslighting, this is where it all begins. This is where you learn to recognize what gaslighting is, and how it has affected your life and relationships. Connecting with your authentic self and power is dependent on this key foundational component. This is the beginning of an unshakable anchoring to your knowing.
Empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights. This part of your journey is where you roll up your sleeves and examine the two sides of a gaslighting experience: where you begin to master recognizing gaslighting behaviors, as well as understand what makes you vulnerable to gaslighting. Seeing both these things is essential in attaining clarity. That clarity is the birthplace of self-trust, finding your voice, and the beginning of true peace.
Moving into embodiment is Magical. This part of your journey is where you take a look at self-gaslighting and gently, but firmly, break open the façade that kept you from knowing and embracing all that you are. Truly seeing the wonder and beauty of your fell self, you fall in love with yourself, and, once you've crossed this threshold, you can't go back. You are transformed. Learning to live in alignment with your authentic self is your launching place of blissful freedom.
