Life is Beautiful

"Johnson's journey out of alcoholism and into Christian faith, are truly inpirational." - Publisher's Weekly

While on a mission's trip in Guatemala, a small Cessna Caravan's engine blows.  The Cessna crashes in a remote village, leave eleven of the fourteen passengers dead.  One passenger, Sarah, shares her story...

Life is Beautiful shares the personal struggles of Sarah's father with drug use, his recovery and redemption to be a better person--giving back by doing missions work in Africa, taking in Sarah's aunt dying of uterine cancer--and eventually leading their family to the mountains of Guatemala.

Sarah also discusses the deaths of her father and brother, her mother's extreme physical and emotional injuries, and her own struggles with alcohol and depression.  After hitting rock bottom, it is not until Sarah starts seeking God through prayer, books, and therapy that she begins to turn her life around.

Life is Beautiful is not only a unique story, but it shows the strength of God's Will.  Follow Sarah's self discovery to accept a new life, a true testimony of God's love for His people, and discover as she did...

When we seek a spiritual journey and connection with God He gives back love, happiness, and forgiveness. 

Therapy Services

Sarah is a Licensed Associate Marriage & Family Therapist.  

Sarah works individually with clients, couples, families, and groups.

Sarah's approach to therapy is simple:  we are unhappy in our lives today, because we have wounds from the past that have been left unhealed.  These wounds generate from our basic needs not being met in childhood, to church/school abuse, loss of any kind (death of a loved one/friend, job, house, security, relationship, etc.), an unexpected accident, or any other adversities that life brings at you.

As your therapist, Sarah believes we must grieve our past wounds/losses.  In other words, we must FEEL our pain.  As Pam Vredevlet states beautifully, "Pain is not a problem.  Pain is healing." 

Sarah creates a safe, trustworthy space, where clients can express their authentic feelings, thoughts, sorrows, and talents.  It is in this space where the client's True Self can explore the world safely.

Sarah then guides her clients to actively participate in life; to live an authentic, honest, happy, and healthy life.   

Sarah does not currently take insurance. 


Sarah is a First Degree Reiki Healer.

She is currently accepting clients for Reiki or Energy Healing sessions.  During the session, the client is in a relaxed state and Sarah channels Healing Energy from The Divine.  One is left feeling relaxed, comforted, and "in tune" with their True Self.

Sarah balances the seven chakras, realigns the aura, and intuitively heals childhood wounds.  

If you are feeling out of balance, anxious, depressed, or experienced childhood trauma years ago, Reiki is for you.  

"My energy healing session with Sarah was like no other experience I've ever had.  She took me into my sacred inner soul and touched my Spirit.  I've never felt anything like it before and since.  I felt wounds I didn't know I had been carrying around around my whole life, and she helped me bring honor and a sense of freedom from a raw innermost pain.  With Sarah, my whole Inner Child felt safe and secure.  I just cannot express enough how incredibly safe I felt.  I could experience and let go of pain in such a loving and peaceful place.  Sarah helped me bring my feelings and hurts to mind, and release them in an indescribable peace.  Sarah's truly loving, gentle heart and her beautiful soul is what makes her gift of healing so remarkable.  I highly recommend her!  Give yourself the gift of healing, you'll feel in touch with your Inner Child like never before!"  ~Lisa
