My coaching style

I work together with my clients to connect the dots between food and performance, addressing any barriers along the way while nurturing a positive relationship with food and our bodies. I operate from a holistic lens and treat the whole person - your nutrition, sleep, movement, stress, and mindset. Our conversations are always a safe space where there are no off limits foods, shame, or guilt. We start with your goals and work from the ground up as we tackle gradual, realistic steps that help you level up your performance. I am here to walk side by side with you in this journey with you, coach you, and cheer you on as you become the best version of yourself!

“A lifesaving resource in unexpected ways. When I met Sara I was in a dark place with my body and my eating (or lack there of) and ugly cried the first time she asked me, “how are you?” In what feels like an unrelated note but isn’t, I had also been turned down to donate blood as my iron levels were too low. Over the last two years Sara has helped me see food as fuel, keep a balanced diet while on field problems, and help reduce my meal time stress at home. She is always up on research and has great book recommendations related to food and mood. She is readily available to answer small questions as they pop up that don’t necessarily require a full appointment and always happy to share in food related victories: eating new foods, creative meal solutions, and success in donating blood due to appropriate iron levels. She will always meet you where you are, hold fast to her nutritional education and counsel, and is ready to reassure you of those concepts when you are ready to hear and accept them for yourself.” November 7, 2022
