My 16 year old daughter is a 3 sport athlete at school, and also plays weekend JCT squash tournaments all year round. She has always been on the low end of the weight and growth chart (>10%). When her BMI dropped off the chart and her maturity rate slowed dramatically the doctor said she needs a lot more calories in her body, and suggested milk shakes and ice cream daily. I knew that was not the healthiest answer, and she also has numbers food allergies. When I found Sarah I knew we were in capable hands. Brecon has been seeing Sarah for a year and has gained over 10 pounds and grown 4 inches. She enjoys their time together, and has learned what to eat for her best performance in school and in sports. We are so grateful to have met Sarah--she is caring and full of energy too!

My teenage daughter came to Sarah looking for guidance on a healthy approach to achieving a specific weight loss goal for her sport. What she she came away with is a life plan to healthy eating habits that will last well past her years as a student athlete. Sarah offers step-by-step plans, new recipes, shopping lists to keep you on track, but more than that her can-do attitude and positive personal support are invaluable. Her passion for her work is palpable. I'm a lucky parent to have her on my daughter's team!

Sarah helped me so much to get my life back on a healthy and balanced track, which is not easy for a college senior. I feel so empowered with the knowledge and skills we worked on in our sessions, and I'm left feeling more energized and great in every area of my life!

Sarah's nutrition counseling helped me make better decisions about what to eat, which resulted in my feeling better on a daily basis. She started me on a gluten and dairy free diet which put an end to my chronic stomach aches, and I could not have stuck to it without her help. My energy level increased which helped my skating, and even my mood improved.

I have been working with Sarah for over two months now and am amazed with my results already! Sarah took the time to research my health issues and catered to my specific needs. I have lost weight but more importantly am feeling so much better already. She has been a tremendous help in helping me reach my goals of being healthier starting from within.

I noticed my good friend had lost weight and looked great. She told me she had started working with a nutritionist, and was really happy. I have NEVER been able to diet, but I had gained weight and my energy level was low so I wanted to give it a try. From day one, I loved it. Sarah took the time to understand what I needed--she didn’t scare me off or make me feel bad about my food choices. We discussed healthy options and simple substitutions--it was never about starving myself and setting impossible goals.
I tried several great recipes, her grocery list is amazing, and I was able to find so many new foods that worked for me and my family. I have lost weight, but more importantly I have never felt better since becoming a mom. It also forced me to look at my family's food choices, and I am setting a good example for my kids.
I couldn’t recommend her more. I accomplished something I had always thought was impossible--losing weight and being happy. Malena Copello-Luz

As a busy mother of 3 young kids, I never focused on my own eating habits or nutritional needs. I skipped meals, drank too much coffee, never sat down to eat, and ate way too many bars and shakes instead of "real food". Sarah changed my life--I never skip breakfast anymore, I have energy throughout the day, I have lost weight, and I consistently feel energetic--and happy. I never would have made these lifestyle changes without her help. She is such a positive and motivating influence in my life!

When I met Sarah I was not feeling my best. I had not been taking care of myself for years and between work and family demands, I continually put my own needs last. I also thought it would be such hard work (and misery!) to lose weight, start exercising again, cook for my family, and prioritize my health that I kept putting it off. I was wrong! Working with Sarah was actually fun -- and it was not all about making sacrifices. It was about adapting new habits that served me better and made me feel better. My family's eating habits have improved as well, and we are all much more mindful about our food choices and what we buy at the store. It really changed my life when I began working with Sarah. I am so grateful.

Dealing with perimenopause and menopause was really difficult for me. I thought I would not be affected because I am healthy, exercise and eat pretty well but I was really set back -- and felt awful! Sarah taught me how to adjust my eating habits and workouts and I have not felt this good in years. I was starving myself to lose weight, hungry all the time, and the scale didn't budge. She changed everything I was doing, and I started feeling better immediately. I would not have gotten through that without her help.

I met Sarah at Barre class and asked her to work with me during major ankle surgery. She could not have been more supportive. She saw quickly that I am an amateur athlete, but didn't have the best eating habits! Sarah helped me get through pre-surgery prep and post surgery recovery with sound nutrition advice, that wasn't confusing or too rigid. Our sessions gave me concrete guidelines, choices for smart substitutes, and a grocery list and menus that I still use every week. Her level of knowledge, positive energy and tools got me through my recovery.
