After years of struggling, I finally feel like I can live my life alcohol-free!
I had been thinking about working with a coach to get support with my relationship with alcohol for quite a while. When I heard Alison on Annie Grace’s podcast, I really resonated with her story from a mom’s point of view. I was also really interested in learning about her journey to health and wellness.
Before coaching with Alison, I had been in an ongoing cycle of on-again, off-again drinking. I was drinking more than I wanted to almost every time I drank. And with that, came the self-disappointment, guilt, and shame. I was constantly judging myself and was really wanting to clear up the cognitive dissonance I had forever had around alcohol.
I truly appreciated Alison’s positive and honest approach and how she always gave me the opportunity to discuss anything on my mind. She helped me create manageable goals each week and the journal prompts she gave me helped me think about things in a much deeper way.
Since working with Alison as my coach, I have experienced many benefits that are sticking with me! I feel so much more confident with my decision to become alcohol-free, am much more gentle with myself when I’m not perfect and I’m also feeling the positive effects of meditating, which has been a goal we set early on in our coaching relationship.
My time spent with Alison has had a very positive impact on my life! I am so much more insightful, educated, and mindful of the topic of alcohol. It has helped me start to break the unhealthy bond I’ve had with the toxic substance. I feel much better prepared and emotionally stronger.

From little hope to moving ahead with a life I never thought would be possible!
I’ve tried so many things to feel more in control of my daily overindulging (for me it was wine). With Alison by my side, she helped me gently explore a totally different way of reexamining my habits, the way I care for myself, my goals and whether my nightly drinks were helping or hindering.
To my surprise, Alison’s coaching has given me the confidence and understanding to try new things, and now I have a plan that includes continuing to explore life without overindulging. What’s most interesting is I’ve learned more in just 6 sessions with Alison than in years of therapy! My “less overindulging” plan includes feeling safe, gaining a deeper understanding of myself and the gumption to move ahead with a life that I never thought would be possible.

Alison helped me get out of my head and make changes I’m excited about!
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Alison as my coach. She is compassionate and truly wants to help people. She listens without judgment or pretense. She’s helped me figure out how to make my busy schedule work for me as a newly working mom of 2 young kids. She’s also helped me get out of my own head and into a new way of thinking about my issues from a different (better!) perspective.
I appreciate that Alison herself leads a healthy lifestyle, including meditation and nourishing food choices, that I can draw on to help me make the better choices that I want to make.
I value the time I’ve spent with her – it’s truly improved my life. As a result of Alison’s coaching, I am able to work my part time job, take care of my family and still make my self-care a priority!
