Being healthy is more than eating right and working out. Being healthy involves finding a balance in all areas of life….physical, emotional, relational, intellectual, and occupational…your Whole Health.

By balancing (or optimizing) each of these areas you’ll naturally build resilience to stress, improve overall health and wellbeing, and enjoy better quality of life.

I believe in a holistic approach to wellness so that’s why the Whole Health Model is the foundation of my services. Did you notice the circles are overlapping? That’s because each dimension isn’t independent but rather sharing qualities and working together….when one is out of balance, the rest are affected.

Many people think that health and wellness habits (eating right, exercising, challenging ourselves, being mindful, etc.) are innate or even intuitive…but wellness habits are actually skills. Which means they can be learned, created, and developed no matter what talents you possess. With a little help and guidance you can actually practice and improve skills in any area of wellness!

Check out the link below to explore the qualities of each dimension. What areas are you strong in and what areas need a little love and attention? The idea is to keep all dimensions in check for a healthy, whole, life!

Hi, I’m Sarah!

2015-07-04 18.24.01.jpg

In New England we have a saying: “little snow big snow, big snow little snow.” When you see tiny snowflakes falling (rather than the big fluffy ones) you’re guaranteed to get significant accumulations…those little flakes really pile up! I love this saying as a metaphor for achieving life-goals....small, steady progress (although it might not feel like it) will lead to big results. I know this is true because I’ve lived it myself....

Over the past decade I have been on a continuous path of transformation as I learn more about health and wellness. Through little steps and small changes I gradually created healthier habits which, in turn, positively impacted nearly all aspects of my life in a big way…from couch potato to running ultra-marathons! Positive change is 100% possible!

As a health coach I aim to meet you where you are and provide the support, encouragement, accountability, and resources you need to achieve your goals…however big or small they are.

When I’m not working I enjoy trail running, trying new creations in the kitchen, reading, daydreaming, and exploring the woods and mountains of New England with my husband Sean and our scruffy dog Oliver.

I believe…

  1. Self-care is essential, it is not a luxury. Taking time in your busy day to care for your health and wellness allows you to be even more productive so you can accomplish all you want and more…and so you can give the best of yourself to those around you.

  2. Health is more than what you eat and how you move. Optimum health includes emotional, intellectual, relational, occupational, and physical health. You will thrive when you nurture each dimension…just wait and see!

  3. Your body was designed to thrive. It is astounding what the body does in response to all the changing demands it experiences every second of the day. The body responds enthusiastically when given all the healthy things it needs to thrive.

  4. Small steps forward will lead to big results…that last. Progress of any amount adds up if you just keep going. Do the work and before you know it you’ll achieve your wellness goal! I’m living proof.

  5. Wellness habits are learnable skills. They’re not talents you’re born with….it is not easy to intuitively know what foods are healthy, how to manage stress, or how to create balance…not in our fast-paced, on-demand, info-overload modern society. But if you grab some help from an expert (i.e. health coach!) you can get the info and skills that you need…customized strategies that fit the context of your life, based on what suits you so you can get on with enjoying your amazing life!
