SARAH THACKER

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website, I am so glad you stopped by! I imagine since you are here, you are seeking a different approach to healing your relationship with food, yourself, your health and your body.

Over the years, I have had to learn to manage my own struggles with food, body image, anxiety, hormone imbalance and digestive disorders. I know first hand that creating a healthy relationship with food, your body and with yourself is complicated, overwhelming and challenging.

Those that I serve are intelligent and successful yet feel their struggles with food are one area of their lives where they don’t feel successful. Rather, they feel out of control, frustrated and shameful. My integrative approach offers a different way to manage food, health, life and wellness so you too can move forward with a sense of freedom when it comes to food.

Through my many years of supporting those who struggle with emotional, stress and disordered eating, together we discovered many elements to healing that are consistently useful along this difficult and yet valuable journey of making peace with food. When it comes down to it, it is never really about the food.

Last year I gathered these primary themes and put them together in my book: Wholistic Food Therapy: A Mindful Approach to Making Peace with Food. It is a workbook and expressive journal that helps you address the root cause of emotional eating. 

I am now offering these themes integrated into supportive, online group coaching courses as well! You can check out my courses page for more information.

I look forward to supporting you in any way I can as you create a healthy, balanced, intentional life. I am dedicated to guiding you along your path to optimal health and wellness--- mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Aside from living my purpose through my work, I love learning about all things related to health and wellness, visiting local apothecaries, spending time in nature, reading, exploring NYC, trying new restaurants, making art and listening to good music!
