My Training




I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.

My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and disease prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with clients like you to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness.

My work is that of a Nutritionist, Personal Trainer, Life Coach and Healer combined. My specialty is gut health since gut dysfunction is linked to virtually every disease, causing cravings, weight gain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, food sensitivities, allergies, chronic pain, cancer, and more.

Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationship, as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes so that together, we will transform your life.

As a coach, I put the power back in YOUR hands so you can heal yourself.
 
"I have such an immense appreciation for the wealth of knowledge Alexandra has, and shares so graciously with the community in the work that she does. I have called upon her myself, and seen many others do the same in times of need - be it for support through a cold or in helping the body to heal with surgery. For her, it is not just what she has learned in education, but what is ingrained in her from childhood growing up with homeopathy and healing foods as a way of approaching health and wellbeing. As a board member of Tri-Valley Natural Families and a holistic healthcare practitioner myself, I deeply appreciate what Alexandra brings to the community - a depth of understanding of homeopathy and nature's gifts that is matched with her heartfelt passion in helping others connect with what their needs are, and then supporting them in finding a balanced way of meeting them. I also see that she lives how she speaks, in seeing how her family flourishes with her tender guidance. I am so grateful for having her as a part of my life and our community!"
