"Wow! Your presentation today was wonderful. There was a lot of chatter afterwards about the content that you shared. I can see that there is more we could explore with your help. So, I’m excited about you coming back in May...My son, Jack, was very excited about your presentation and said afterwards that conflict resolution] might be his area of interest, leading to a college major and a future career. So, thanks for moving that ball forward for him." Reverend Mary Stanley, Old Saint Paul’s Baltimore
"Chrysalis was excited to have Sarah Federman share with us her research on the importance of language and story in our lives and our conflicts. She is an indisputable expert in her field but allows for the audience to engage with her material letting us incorporate our own experiences and stories." Viki Saunders, past president of the Chrysalis Institute
Many, many thanks for your conversation with my class today. My students loved your story and our interaction! Several stayed after class, praising your work and telling me that they felt inspired by your message about how important to do what appear to be little things to make a difference.
Georgia Gwinnett College has a very diverse student body. Among students in this class were army veterans, foreign students, people from different socio-economic classes, students who were homeless at one point in their lives, and so on. On the other hand, some of them have had perfectly "normal" lives. It was truly amazing how you were able to relate to them and communicate the main ideas so well to all of them!
Thanks again. Your work has definitely made a difference today.

Sarah truly possesses all the qualities that make her the healer of healers. She has a unique way of helping her clients and even others around her to improve themselves in every aspect of life. - Dr. Swati Kannan Military
"I am awed by all that Sarah has done but through it all she remains humble and caring, deeply interested in your life, experiences, and what makes you essentially you. She hones in on your passions, your uniqueness, and helps you bring that out in your everyday life.
'No' or 'impossible' is not in Sarah's vocabulary and she helps you brainstorm ways to go after your dreams all while understanding your limitations whether they are financial or emotional in the challenges you face.
Sarah has a perceptiveness and natural understanding that will allow you to share yourself without feeling judged. In this respect, she is a gift to all members of society from overworked burned-out professionals to members of the military, many of which are seeking someone to help them balance and prioritize the challenges of leading dual civilian and military lives."
-Department of Defense Analyst, Pentagon
"Sarah kept me focused and positively motivated me as I was going through a critical time of change in my life. She helped me understand my personal needs and encouraged me to take steps that I was hesitant to take at first. I feel stronger and I'm able to do my volunteer work now from a freer, happier space."
