Emily Barker

Health & Nutrition Coach

Welcome to Eat to Thrive!

I empower busy, multi-tasking moms to prioritize their health and teach their families healthy habits. 

When was the last time you talked with someone about your health and received the personal attention you deserve? 

It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to work on their personal wellness goals with a trained professional. As a Holistic Health Counselor, I create a supportive environment that will enable you to achieve all of your health goals. Many of us know what we SHOULD be doing, but have difficulty following through. As your Health Counselor, I will help support and guide you to reaching your goals.

I have a holistic approach to wellness and believe that optimal health and wellness is obtained by integrating the following components:

  • Nutrition
  • Relationships
  • Career
  • Physical Activity
  • Spirituality
  • Self-Care and Stress Management

Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats and proteins. No one diet works for everyone. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline. I will help you to make gradual, lifelong changes from the inside out that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.

My mission is to support busy moms who are struggling with both preparing quick, healthy, enjoyable meals for their families, as well as prioritizng their own self-care. A thriving, healthy family begins with a thriving, healthy mom! My step-by-step guidance and support along the way will help you integrate lasting dietary changes into your family's life.

During your sessions with me, you'll learn the basics of real nutrition, which foods to choose at the grocery store, and how to prepare nutritionally balanced meals. You'll understand how food affects your moods, energy level, immune system, heart health and weight maintenance. The goal of nutrition counseling is to realize the real-life benefits of eating natural whole foods so that it's easier to move away from health-depleting, processed and refined foods.
