Sarah Vosen: Intro to FRIED's Newest Coach, Specialist in HSP, Empaths and Healers
Updated: Mar 9
“The most compassionate people are the most boundaried,” says Sarah Vosen, FRIED’s newest burnout coach. As an HSP and an empath, Sarah is deeply tuned into the emotional experiences of the people around her. We are thrilled to welcome her to the FRIED team, where she will be offering coaching sessions alongside Cait. On today’s episode, Sarah and Cait discuss Sarah’s personal burnout story as well as the new perspectives and approach she will bring to our burnout community.
Cait has known Sarah for over twenty years, and Cait’s own mother once described Sarah as “love personified.” However, when Sarah was deep in her burnout, she lost the ability to hold the loving space for her clients that Cait’s mom and so many others had experienced. Sarah tells listeners that she found herself in a constant tired but wired state: she felt low, but she was also running on pure adrenaline. Now, Sarah is working with both a burnout coach and a functional medicine specialist to identify and address the emotional and physical contributors to her burnout. While her burnout story is ongoing, Sarah tells listeners that she is finally beginning to find love again.
Tune into today’s episode of FRIED. The Burnout Podcast for a conversation with Sarah Vosen about empathy, burnout recovery and feeling love again. Be sure to listen to the full episode for a short #straightfromcait segment about honoring yourself, even when your burnout recovery may feel sucky.

“I feel like my burnout story starts at birth….I have an anxious attachment style, and that has certainly been a filter that has influenced my life and every single decision I’ve ever made.” (02:44-03:21)
“I was receiving treatment – chiropractic, acupuncture, and some massage – and I started noticing that they weren’t working. I couldn’t relax.” (05:25-05:34)
“My biggest issues have been with my gut, which in Chinese medicine is spleen and stomach and all about nurturing and nourishment, whether that’s coming from food or an emotional source….And I have had difficulty receiving my whole life.” (26:46-27:19)
“All of the emotional things have manifested physically, or all the physical things have manifested emotionally, and I see how my physical body shifts as I work and process through the emotional things.” (28:30-28:48)
“The most compassionate people are the most boundaried.” (41:09-41:12)
“Empathy with boundaries equals compassion and is the only way to make being empathetic sustainable.” (43:16-43:25)
“I didn’t know I was a sensitive person. I didn’t know. I thought everybody was like me. Turns out that’s not true. So, in taking the quiz and finding this out…it was so enlightening and so validating.” (48:20-48:40)
“All mammals – animals and humans – have 20% of their species that are highly sensitive, and this is meant to be important and evolutionary for the group.” (49:43-50:00)
“It’s ok to be totally sucking at your burnout recovery right now.” (59:22-59:25 | Cait)
“If you allow it, your burnout recovery journey could be the most interesting, introspective journey you take in your entire life. Burnout recovery is an absolute chance to know yourself intimately, to rebuild trust in your ability to communicate between your mind and your body and to figure out how you can show up on a day-to-day basis that honors who you are, what you came here for and what kind of energy you have to do all of that today.” (1:00:46-1:01:15 | Cait)
