You Can Heal.

I am here to tell you that you have the ability to heal from anything.  Once you let the light in, start replacing subconscious programming (limited beliefs), and look to your body and life as a messenger, healing happens often quicker than expected.

Here are some areas that I have helped clients with:

  • Big and small health diagnosis (cancer, insomnia, Lyme disease, digestive ailments, etc.)
  • Anxiety and/or low self-esteem and/or depression
  • Physical Pain
  • Weight loss or gain
  • Binge eating and/or cravings and/or food addictions
  • Body Image
  • Food and Environmental Allergies and Sensitivities
  • Relationships to self, others, food
  • Stress relief
  • Motivation vs. procrastination
  • Understanding and/or fulfilling life purpose

In addition to my health-transforming coaching and healing offerings, I offer scientifically sound detoxification programs, and high quality professional supplements from a variety of companies when applicable (however, this is not the main part of my business).  I have a background as a Clinical Nutritionist.

You are unique.

Let’s unravel any of your misconceptions about health and healing. We will rewrite your mindset and current state of health so that you can easily change your behaviors, reach your goal(s), heal, and find peace and freedom.

An Approach That Works.

I offer medication-free, natural solutions.   If your priority is finding the underlying cause(s) instead of just treating the symptoms, then you’ve come to the right place!  My clients receive the best line of care possible.

Interesting facts about me!

  • PERU-AlisonI have always loved food. In high school and college, I worked at a local chocolate shop where I managed to taste every product in the store!  I ‘developed’ many food sensitives and avoided these foods for years until I discovered energy work and was able to ‘clear’ my allergies and food sensitivities and now eat whatever the heck I want, when I want 🙂 (in moderation, of course)
  • I am an avid outdoors enthusiast. I’ve professionally coached kids in skiing and cross-country running. On my 40th birthday, I hiked the rigorous Inca Trail to Machu Pichu.  Today, I enjoy skiing, hiking, & tennis.
  • I walk my talk. I’ve changed many of my own limiting beliefs and continue to do so on a regular basis.  Life is my teacher and I am now able to move through difficult situations with more ease and grace & help others to do so as well.  It’s so liberating. I want everyone to experience this level of freedom and peace in their lives.
  • I experienced heartbreaks & then found my true love.  I struggled for a long time in romantic relationships (ask any of my girlfriends and they will attest to this!).  I attribute my work to move beyond my deeply hidden limiting beliefs to finally, at age 38, find the one for me.  Our June 2017 wedding was glorious (I was a 41 year old first time bride)!
  • I have a wealth of knowledge and experience. In addition to my healing work with individual clients, I helped support thousands of customers who have purchased four popular online metabolic programs (that I have also helped in the development of): Metabolic Renewal (female hormonal program), Metabolic Aftershock, Metabolic Factor, and Metabolic Prime. Over 100,000 copies have been sold throughout the world! If you have any questions about these products, do let me know – I will forewarn you that the sales process to order can be frustrating but the products themselves are high quality, work, and low in cost to the consumer.  Over the last 10+ years, I have worked at various wellness centers and immersed myself in the wellness industry.

Okay, enough about me! I want to learn about YOU!
