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 that occur when one attempts to save another. What unfolded was a life that she could never have imagined. 


This book is about her journey back to her true self, the warrior and woman she was 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, or a friend, addicted or not, and get your life back. It will help transform you from codependency’s profound and debilitating effects 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 focus on what is happening inside of us, we will begin to build a more robust sense of self.”


“Dismissing our needs, feelings, and thoughts leads us to behaviors we use to numb 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 accumulated repressed anger, grief, and fear that will eventually come out against ourselves and others. Give yourself permission to just do you.”

Co-Crazy Reminders

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.
