Working with Ali will change your life!
I came to her after trying so so many other things to stop my habit of binge eating and emotional eating.
My health had started to suffer, my A1c was trending up, I felt exhausted all of the time- and honestly, thinking about my weight and appearance all of the time was killing my mental health too. I was at the point that I was not sure anything would ever help.
Ali’s program is totally different than all of the meal plans and diet programs and nutrition fads and ANYTHING I had ever done before!
Ali will teach you not only how to lose weight, but how to manage all of the thoughts and emotions that are tangled up with eating and being overweight.
And she never pushes any type of program, she never tells you there are foods you cannot eat. She will help you come up with a plan that works-
I’m on a plan now where I get to have sugar every single day, and yet I’m losing weight and my blood sugar has gone back down to a normal range!! It feels like magic, but is 100% real!
Ali is amazing and this work is truly life-changing... do it!!"

Ali has been a shining beacon…
of light since I met her. Her positive energy, motivation, steadfast support and genuine desire to help women feel and function at their best has been a god send. She is authentic and really cares deeply about others. I’ve made huge changes in how I view food, am less hard on myself and happier overall. I have a better relationship with myself and thus a better relationship with my husband. I’m comforted that by coaching with her, she’ll be there to guide me and catch me if I fall and when I stumble. So I can live my life to the fullest and be the best version of myself. The most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. Ali is helping me work on that relationship. I am blessed to have her in my life.
I knew Ali was the person…
that could help me achieve goals and also the one that would help change my life for the better. I have been very impressed by her passion to help and connect with her clients. I’ve been working with Ali for 3 months and have seen amazing results! I have incredible energy and I've got great new muscles. I have never felt stronger or healthier! Ali is truly passionate about health and fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm she brings to every session. Her easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. She makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! She motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Ali will lead you every step of the way.
Thank you Ali, you are the best!
I have always struggled…
with my weight and body image. If there is a diet out there I have done it. I have done everything from Nutrisystem to full out starvation. I have cut out carbs, cut out fat, cut out sugar, etc etc. When I started working with Ali I had actually just stopped working with another coach who promised success and then could not figure out why I wasn't losing weight. She said it must be that I am not being strict enough. Anyway, Ali was just a breath of fresh air. She didn't blame me. There was never a one size fits all. We worked with what I liked to do and eat and built on that. Most importantly it wasn't just about my weight. Im a working mom with 2 toddlers, 2 dogs, and a baby on the way and a husband who works too and has his set of needs and issues. Our marriage isn't perfect, I just left a job that wasn't good for me, I moved cross country and Im taking oral boards in the Spring. Ali helps with all of that. She helped me deal with life, stress so I can manage better. She helped me come up with manageable strategies to deal with all of it so I didn't feel like I was constantly failing at life. I then realized, with her help, when I feel better about my life and how I am managing it all, I feel better about myself, I make better choices, I don't emotionally eat, etc etc. No one has ever tied it all together like that. Intuitively it makes sense but hearing someone walk you through it all makes a HUGE difference. I would always feel lighter after she talked me through things.
I know this is how it is supposed to work…
but it is AMAZING to me that I don’t want to eat!! Yesterday was a classic day that would have involved overeating or binge eating, I was home all day, I didn’t have much going on, typically that is just a classic set up for feeling guilty and restless and overeating (or binging because I feel bad or because I’m bored). But yesterday- nothing. I ate when I was hungry, ate what I wanted, stopped when I was full. And I had chocolate and ice cream and soda here at the house, could have had any of those things- but I didn’t really want any of it. Just like that, no struggle, no nothing. How crazy is that???? It really really works!!!
I have worked with Ali…
to modify many of my thoughts. She has taught me how to better process my son’s death and replace guilt with joy. We have worked together to replace frustration with compassion in my marriage. Now I am learning to love myself again with Ali’s help. She is not only helping me with exercise and nutrition to lose weight, but she is helping me learn the behavioral and mental techniques I need to maintain the healthy changes forever!
”I had to work today, and was wearing jeans that I hadn’t worn in a long time. In fairness, these jeans have felt a little big on me the last time I wore them, but I didn’t pay attention and wore them anyway. They literally almost fell off as I was walking into a patient room today!! I’ve never been so happy to almost be mortified!!”
In short, coaching with Ali…
has changed my life and will continue to do so. By using a cognitive based approach, this process has changed my mindset and the way I look at things. Prior to my sessions with Ali I harbored a significant amount of anxiety that I was, in truth unaware of. Ali has shown me how to feel and how to process these feelings (both good and bad feelings!) and allow them to be present without causing anxiety. The sessions are very 1:1 and are personal to my needs and what is going on in my life as opposed to other coaches I have worked with in the past who seemed to have a generic template which they utilize for every client like a recipe. By setting specific goals before we began working together, Ali was able to personalize my sessions and give me helpful “homework” based on my needs and this has maximized my results. I can’t wait to continue my program and continue to train myself to FEEL!
As a working mother…
wife, daughter, sister and friend, I reached a crossroads in my life. I was burnt out and feeling like a failure on all fronts. I reached out to Dr. Ali for help. I didn’t even know what a life coach was all about. I know now...a life line! Working with her to understand the thought model changed my life! Life circumstances haven’t changed, but my thoughts and reactions to them certainly have. Thank you, Dr. Ali!
