As a competitive childhood softball player and dancer and a current Nia and MELT instructor, Sara understands the importance of the mind-body connection and it's direct effect on peak performance. Sara specializes in working with athletes and coaches across all sports worldwide, including gymnastics, diving, swimming, dance, figure skating, equestrian, basketball, soccer, baseball, softball and cheerleading to name a few. Sara's clients range from youth to adults, across all levels from professional and Olympic athletes to junior competitors. She is currently the Peak Performance Coach at Hampshire Gymnastics in Amherst, MA.
Sara is committed to working alongside Dr. G to continue to shift the landscape of youth sports, through the education of coaches and parents. Sara helps coaches and parents get to the root and understand their athletes' fear, blocks and performance problems, so they can provide the most supportive path for helping their athletes get unstuck and performing back to their peak potential. She is dedicated to helping coaches create a safe and supportive environment for their athletes to excel in their sport, all while fostering the development of the athletes' confidence, self esteem and a strong connection to themselves. We have an epidemic in our culture of adults inadvertently teaching kids how to distrust and ignore their own body pain signals and push through pain. This is resulting in more injuries and damage to kids' bodies, along with confusing our children and adolescents. Sports can be an arena where we teach our youth how to sense and truly trust their own bodies, not override the messages.
She is on a mission to help educate coaches, parents and athletes about the importance of REST and RESTORE as the missing piece for reaching ULTIMATE PEAK PERFORMANCE through nervous system regulation and connective tissue care. She works with athletes and teams to integrate the MELT Method® Hand and Foot treatments into their weekly training programs to get the most out of repetitive training, reduce damage to the body and the risk of injury and speed up recovery time.
With over 14 years of experience working with kids and their families and a background in school guidance counseling, Sara has a deep understanding of adolescents and the difficulties that they face.
