Life Coach & Happiness Mentor

Sarah Caracciolo
Life Coach & Happiness Mentor
Tele: 310-294-0614

​I believe that we are all meant to live a life filled with love, peace, and connection.  It has been my experience that the only thing preventing us from living our best life, are limiting beliefs that we have been attaching to that simply aren't true.

I help young girls and women feel more confident in their own skin.  It is one of my missions to empower women to see their own unique amazingness inside themselves and clear anything that is blocking them from feeling confident, connected, and happy.

As women, we are extremely good at comparing ourselves to others;  we think that if we were skinnier, prettier, or more successful, ​that we would be happier. But that isn't true.  Our happiness depends on the tides of our minds and if we cannot be happy with the person in the mirror- ourselves, no one thing or person will ever fulfill our happiness jar.  Our job is to find the love and acceptance for who we are, so that we can start living a life that FEELS more purposeful, PEACEFUL, and joyful.

​As Shakti Gawain says, "​
Everything in the universe wants to be loved and accepted. Our personal work is to find the love and acceptance within ourselves.
