Thacker Receives License as a Professional Counselor

Sarah Thacker

Sarah Thacker, MA, LPC, ATR-BC, ERYT-500, CHHCI, recently received her License as a Professional Counselor (LPC). Thacker offers a holistic approach to health and wellness, and specializes in working with those who struggle with an emotional attachment to food and/or those who desire a healthier life and have no idea where to begin. Thacker sees clients at Glenmore Yoga and Wellness Center.

Thacker received her original training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where she was trained in more than 100 dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, she seeks to help clients create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits the unique body, lifestyle, preferences and goals for each individual.

Prior to her career in health and wellness, Thacker received a master's degree in art therapy from Hofstra University and is a registered and board-certified Art Therapist. She feels art therapy is a wonderful way to understand the inner self through creative exploration. “I have always felt that the clients I have worked with could benefit from a more well-rounded and expansive approach to healing. I became a registered yoga teacher through Glenmore Yoga and Wellness Center in 2006 and have continued to teach group classes as well as conduct individual yoga sessions and a variety of workshops at Glenmore Yoga.”
