Helping you repair your relationship with food, exercise, and your body.
Providing In-Person and Virtual Coaching
Hey there! I’m Sarah…
I have over 10 years of coaching experience and my passion is helping individuals repair their relationship with food, exercise, and movement. I help you ditch diet culture and unrealistic societal standards and finally find peace within your body.
Over the course of our time together I will empower you to say good-bye to restriction, rigid food rules, and binge-eat-repeat patterns of behavior and hello to trusting and respecting your body again!
Together, we will create your long-term health and wellness vision and determine how you would like your life to be different.
I will guide you in discovering meaningful changes you can make that work for you and your lifestyle, so you can live the life you have always envisioned.
Health and Wellness Coaching. Redefined.

WHAT MY CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Working with Sarah has been truly life-changing. Prior to coaching, I felt trapped in my own skin but I didn’t know how to get out.
I had tried other coaches, apps, and trendy diets but every time I felt more and more defeated. Sarah was my last hope and she did not disappoint. She was kind, compassionate, and a positive presence from the moment we had our initial phone call.
Over the course of 12 weeks Sarah helped me completely transform the way I look at food, exercise, and myself.
I no longer fear food, I enjoy the experience of eating again, and I have learned the importance of giving myself grace. Investing in Sarah was the best thing I have ever done for myself and I can not recommend her coaching enough.*
When I started my coaching relationship with Sarah 3 months ago, I was a different person. I hated food, I hated eating, I hated my body and I lived in obsessive misery thinking I could never change. I was tired of all the hating. I found Sarah serendipitously via Facebook, having just started reading Intuitive Eating, and knew her behavior-analytic approach would be the way to start what I hoped would be a journey to happiness.
Throughout the coaching process, Sarah inspired me to open my thinking about myself, shifting thoughts of “identity” to thoughts of “values” and really spending time understanding what is truly important to me. We moved through many exercises that enabled me to reflect in ways I never had, sometimes inspiring tears and anxiety, but always leading a more enlightened outlook.
By the last half of our sessions, we were deep into strategies and working through specific situations and challenges around food and exercise, all while confronting my Type A tendencies and the inherent conflict between a schedule and intuition. In today’s final session, I felt like all the angsty baggage I once schlepped around with me has floated down the stream and I am waving goodbye with a smug smile of satisfaction.
This has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. Sarah is the most amazing, insightful, patient and kind human and I treasure this experience with all my heart!*
