Hi! I'm Sarah.

I'm a Mayo Clinic- and National Board-certified health coach, author, speaker, and Forbes columnist.

I help freethinkers learn how to build healthy routines without adhering to restrictive diet and fitness plans. If you’re not a fan of rule-following, you’re in the right place!

How do you like to travel?

Chart your own path.

If you prefer to figure things out on your own, here, you'll find a variety of ways to clarify what quality of life means for you, where to begin, and how to continue. My newest book, The Habit Trip, teaches the science of behavior change through a playful, interactive, fill-in-the-blank workbook. It puts you in charge.

If you're feeling more frustrated than playful—trying to balance somewhere between the voting booth, the trails, and your couch—you'll find a safety net in my second book, Physical Disobedience.

SOLO

Navigate your next steps with me.

You've tried all the plans. Nothing works. You're exhausted and looking for another way. The plans don't work because there's no one-size-fits-all formula for well-being. "Self-care" can only be defined by you, and it's likely to include food, exercise, rest or other choices that some folks might judge as "unhealthy."

As a health coach, my job is to help you meet your unique needs with concrete, self-directed reinforcements, and most of the time, the answer isn't about controlling yourself. It's about relief.

A SELF-DIRECTED APPROACH TO POSITIVE CHANGE

The most effective behavioral changes are rooted in kindness and respect for our bodies rather than control or manipulation.

Your body isn’t the enemy. It’s the most valuable source of information you have.

I’ve spent nearly twenty years helping people figure out what they need to support their health and productivity—and how to follow through to meet those needs.

 

If you're frustrated with conventional advice on how to take care of yourself that never seems to help, welcome! You get to choose your own path here.

Your challenges, your solutions, your way.
Always.

How It Works

STEP 1: Select the support you need.

Whatever you choose, you will NEVER get a hard sell from me. My goal is to make myself irrelevant, to get you to a place where this whole conversation is behind you. You simply don't have to think about it any more.

STEP 2: Choose your path:

I LIKE TO FLY SOLO

On this path, you'll get access to the tools you need to change frustrating habits on your own—and learn how to adapt them whenever, however you like.
