Welcome to Intentional Health for Women! 

My name is Alana, pronounced ah-LAY-nah" (ask my parents), and I used to want to be a nun or a Broadway actress. Mercifully, life had other plans.

Today, I am a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, and I may be about to change your life for good. Every area of it, from your mornings, to your dress size, to your savings account, and beyond. 

How, you ask? By giving you back the very thing that fascinates us in little kids and wild horses. The thing we crave most when we get lost in our own unhelpful thoughts. The one we're most protective of, and yet so negligent with. 

Your freedom. 


freedom to think for myself 

Ive made a life and a career of searching for the unconventional solution, rebelling against the dogma, always choosing the road less traveled. 

Ive made notes for when I would teach other womensince I was 12. Ive left my job as a school counselor to join the Peace Corps with my husband. Ive researched, and probed, and questioned everything that was ever presented to me as fact, as requirement, or as inevitable. 

To be fair, I still do. Until theres solid science or my own intuition fully behind a choice, that is. 

Its a habit I teach all my clients, and its what I most hope for them to take away. 

This is your life, after all. Your decisions must be yours, too. 


freedom to feel what is

One of the cornerstones of my work is healing old patterns and programs we didn't choose for ourselves (but learned early in our lives) and releasing the blocks they created. 

You cannot expect to live your life on purpose when your heart says Go!and your feet wont move. Its the emotions, Ive learned, that we need to get moving first, before we can ever hope to go places. 

Seeing a woman I work with have a breakthrough, helping her undo whats kept her numb and in place, is always the highlight of my week. So is seeing somebody dive deep for the sometimes uncomfortable, but real, answers. So is shared laughter over the silliest thing. So is watching someone learn to love themselves fiercely. 

None of these happen when you dont let the pendulum swing, when you try to only take the good, and bury the bad. 

Letting it swing again may be scary to attempt alone, but it's not half as bad with a good guide. 

That's why I will always lead you there. 

And then, Ill lead you out. 


freedom to have fun

Because wearing a suit is not what counts. Putting on a professional face is not what counts. 

Trust does. Comfort does. Ease does. 

I care about you, I care about the impact our time together will have on your life, I have the tools to make it happen, a talent for teaching you those tools, and Im pretty good about seeing the bright side of just about anything.

The rest is you and I, in a virtual room together, until you're at the point where your life is brimming with fun and progress, just like our sessions. Talking about what matters most, and drinking big mugs of my proprietary magic brew. 


Thats the way I choose to do my work. 

Thats the way youre free to do your healing.

Thank you for joining me here.

Ready. Set. Radiate.
