Hello and welcome!
I'm Sara Saltee and I help people understand who they are as creators so they can stop agonizing over what they are meant to do and start making the contributions they are uniquely designed to make to the healing and evolution of our world.
My clients work with me to claim their creative identity, orchestrate a life that honors and supports the kind of creator they are, and practice navigating the emotional and spiritual challenges of the creating process.
Using my original Creative Constellation framework and tools, we explore the juicy intersection of creativity and life purpose, map the coordinates of your genius (however complex your genius might be), and start trusting the inner navigation system that is already trying to steer you toward a life big enough for who you really are.
I also offer Creative Constellation training and consultation to coaches and other practitioners seeking beautiful new tools to enrich their work with clients and groups.
The creative practice I personally turn to for unadulterated joy and spiritual wellness is making assemblages (a fancy word for chunky collages) mostly in the form of shrines and shadowboxes. I share that journey here, too.
Thanks for visiting, I'm glad you're here!

It took the aftermath of a deeply imperfect public performance to remind me how important it is to change the channel on perfectionistic mental chatter. Turns out, your drive to perfect may be baked into your smart, creative self, but the agony of perfectionism doesn't have to be.
Take a tour of a new Sara Saltee assemblage "God is Voluptuous and Delicious," a cheeky celebration of the divine feminine. She's asserting herself hugely these days (perhaps you've noticed a weensy touch of backlash?) and she Will Have Her Way.
In honor of Valentine's Day, let's celebrate a form of love that too often goes unsung: the generative love of a creator for her creations. (Is there a card for that?)
