Hi, i'm sarah!
I'm a body image & eating disorder therapist in HORSHAM, pa.
I want you to know that I get it.
Because I'm one of you.
And, I know firsthand... the struggle is real.
A whopping 97% of women report having negative body thoughts each and every day. Women have been shown to have significantly lower self-esteem than their male counterpart and, over 20 million women in the US will suffer from an eating disorder in their lifetime.
What does this tell us?
Ladies, I know that you know...
Unrelenting pressure to appear and behave a certain way. The idea that we should have it all, and DO it all. Society's spoken and unspoken rules that steer our self-talk in ways that keep us small. Unspoken competition with other women. And, the refusal to allow our struggles to be seen for what they really are.
You're tired of the sleepless nights and wondering how in the world you got to this point.
You dream of a day when stop feeling so out of control around food. When you can have your cake and eat it too.
You're fed up with picking your body apart and hopping on the bandwagon of the next best diet.
You wonder when you'll finally feel like you're enough. Like you're worthy. Like you're loved.
You’re ready to start feeling like yourself again. But, it's been so long that you're not sure if you'll even recognize when it happens.
I spent years buying into what my inner critic was telling me. To the point where she ruled how I operated (or didn't operate) in the world.
I know what it's like to struggle with body image and being caught in the grips of disordered eating.
I know what it’s like to relentlessly grind to achieve external expectations at the price of losing myself in the process.
Despite being surrounded by colleagues, family and friends, I've felt alone and invisible, like no one can relate.
I've fallen victim to the comparison-trap and the fear of missing out. Yup, they're very real things. And they come back to haunt me every now and again.
And to put it bluntly...
I want you to know that I’ve done the work and I've healed my wounds.
I'm driven to help women get out of their heads, stand in the power and truth of who they are, and start living the life they’ve dreamed of... on their own terms.
You can rediscover and learn to love and accept the true you; the beautiful badass that's been hidden away for too many years. And, with a little guidance and support, you can heal the wounds from your past, stop feeling so out of control around food, and learn to love the body that you're in.
I grew up in a small town in Maine before moving to Philadelphia to attend college and grad school.
Now I live outside of Philadelphia with my husband and my energetic and adorable chocolate lab.
I'm a black coffee drinker.
In the spring and fall I love nothing more than a little front porch sitting with a cup of coffee and a good book.
The beach is my all time favorite place to be.
I have a twin sister.
I'm committed to nourishing and treating my body with compassion, love, and kindness.
Working with children and adults facing the end of their lives taught me the importance of living life to the fullest and being present with the people who mean the most to me.
I. Seriously. Love. Froyo. Or, maybe I just love the toppings. LOL
I love lifting heavy weights in the gym.
