What is Radical Communication Coaching?

Radical communication coaching is an opportunity to build effective, collaborative, compassionate, and care-oriented communication. This approach to communication offers a pathway to live authentically while maintaining, and even strengthening, your relationships, life, and the values that matter most to you. Throughout the coaching process, we'll collaboratively extract goals, identify roadblocks, and develop strategies to support your personal growth and forward motion. It is simultaneously a soft place to land, and a tool that helps guide you through the challenges and discomfort that come with significant personal growth.   

I describe this work as “radical” because of the values I use to shape the sessions and practices we engage in during our time together. Effective communication is often what stops us from getting our needs met and showing up in the ways we want to. To be able to communicate with care and compassion in a collective way is to live in abundance and in this world, that is a radical idea. During our time together, I will invite us to examine where we sit socially, what social scripts we've been taught, and the behaviors and patterns we've internalized that uphold systemic harm. Values mapping is the core of this work and that makes it radical.

I do this work because building relationships and being in community with others is not only my favorite thing to do, it is also the best way I know how to put my values into action. In "Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic As Power," Audre Lorde critiques the systems of oppression that rely on us being separate from one another, and the consequent stripping of authentic power. This is at the very heart of what this work means to me. Anything that pushes people to learn more and do better in order to help them step into their power, and to live in community with one another, is not only of dire importance - it is also radical.

What Makes Sarah
Stand Out

Is Communication Coaching Right For Me?

We're all pretty intuitive - if you're interested in coaching and feel you would benefit from it, then you're probably right! But, the best way to tell if coaching is truly the best move for you (and if I'm the right coach for the job) is to book a free discovery call! In the meantime, here are just a few ways I work with clients for you to consider:

Things feel off. You're feeling like things in your life just aren't quite right and you're interested in getting to know yourself better and find authentic engagement in your job, relationships, and community. You want to live in alignment with your values and reach your greatest potential.

Your current relationship to your gender or sexual identity is in flux and you're unsure of how to proceed, how to articulate your feelings, how to take action towards a more affirming way of existing, and how to communicate that to your loved ones.

You are looking to show up in alignment with your values during conflict. You'd like to cultivate a safe environment for your and your partner so conflict feels generative and collaborative.

You've recently come out, or are looking to reintegrate into the queer dating scene after a while. Maybe you have specific and personal questions about sex and intimacy that Google simply cannot help with....but I can! If you want to find confidence while moving through new intimate terrain, I've got you covered!  

You want to explore your spiritual connection but want to stay in your lane and act in alignment with your anti-colonial values. You want to identify healing practices rooted in your own lineage and use them to provide healing opportunities for yourself and others.

You're intrigued by the world of polyamory, polyintimacy, or non monogamy OR you're already involved in it! You want to get the skills you need to be as successful as possible!
