Author & Psychologist

Dr. Sarah Michaud


Dr. Sarah Michaud, PsyD is a clinical psychologist in central Massachusetts. After twenty years of sobriety, she was forced to confront the shame of her husband relapsing and the desperate behaviors one attempts to save another. What unfolded was a life that she could never have imagined. This book is about that journey back to her true self, the warrior and the woman she was truly meant to be. It will help anyone who wants to live beyond trying to save, fix or change another, whether it is a child, a spouse, a friend, addicted or not, and get your own life back. It will help to transform you from the profound and debilitating effects of codependency and settle into a life of authenticity, laughter, openness and peace. 


From Sarah

My Hope For Us All

“When we stop being preoccupied with how the world responds to us and start to focus on what is going on inside of us, we will begin to build a more robust sense of self.”

“Dismissing our needs, feelings, and thoughts leads us to behaviors that we use to numb out the pain of not being seen. Your needs, ideas, emotions, and experiences are who you are – don’t dismiss yourself because it will lead others to do the same. It will also lead to the accumulation of repressed anger, grief, and fear that will eventually come out against ourselves and others. Give yourself permission to just do you.”

We are not responsible for anyone else’s thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. We are only responsible for our response to them. Mantra: I am accountable for what’s in my hula-hoop. That’s it.
When they say their truth, believe it.
When there are red flags, see them.
When you feel a conflict inside, recognize it.
It is easier to be clear about facts when you are upset. Just remember when you’re feeling better, it doesn’t mean the facts don’t exist.
No matter how much you believe that you can tell who people are by just looking at them, or you believe you know what they are thinking, you can’t. Seriously, you can’t. No, seriously.
