“I read so many books on intuitive eating, emotional eating, and mindful eating, but I still couldn’t figure out how to make any of it work in my actual daily life. Working with Alissa was truly a transformative experience. Alissa is extremely compassionate and knows exactly what questions to ask and how to gently push you in the direction of slow, steady progress.”


AR - Testimonials_Diane

“For the first time in my life, I’m eating what I want to eat and not binging. For the first time in my life, I am working out because of how it makes my body feel. For the first time in my life, I’m not angry at myself when I go to bed. For the first time in my life, I am a nice person to myself! I owe so much of that to Alissa.”


AR - Testimonials_Jill

“Working with Alissa was the best decision I could have made for myself and for my future. It has allowed me to truly enjoy life and focus on other things beside body size and food. I no longer binge eat, I have better self-confidence and internal body awareness, and my stress levels are significantly lower.”

Check out my book:

Unapologetic Eating

I wrote this book to encourage you to think outside of the arbitrary boxes that society has put you in so that you can find - and trust - who you really are deep inside.

Using food as the entry point, my book helps you explore more about yourself, your beliefs, your values, and what you truly want out of life so that you can find freedom and liberation, unapologetically.

Combining concepts of intuitive eating, body image work, mindfulness, self-compassion, somatic and embodiment work, and more - Unapologetic Eating will help you get free.

Actually, Eating Can Be Easy

(and Pleasurable)

When we stop being bossed around by diet culture, we often don’t know what to eat. My Gentle Nutrition Cookbook is full of delicious recipes and prompts that can help you reclaim the joy of cooking (and eating), unapologetically.

You don’t have to take up less space to be loved and respected

And the truth is, the more time we spend trying to fix ourselves, the less time we have for our dreams, our relationships, our careers, and our lives.
You are not broken.You deserve to feel worthy in your body.You’re allowed to eat.You’re allowed to be you.Right now, and always.

Let’s live unapologetically.
