Alana is amazing! Very clearly knows what she's doing and I love that she has a non-judgemental, zen approach to nutrition. A lot of nutritionists can be kind of judgy especially when looking at a food diary but Alana is verychill and offers great advice. I love her wholistic outlook and ability to be flexible with a lot of things. I've already lost weight (which wasn't the main reason I went but served as a bonus!) would definitely recommend her.

My visit with Alana was great. She is extremely knowledgeable in nutrition and mindfulness and has helped me achieve goals and change habits that have been hard for me to do in the past. I feel like she really wants thebest for me and believes in me. I appreciate that she holds me accountable to myself even if it’s means a little tough love.

Alana was very warm and welcoming. She created a safe space for me to speak freely (perhaps shed a few tears) and be myself. As someone who’s really into eastern medicine, her combined knowledge of wellness and nutrition made her reallystand out to me. She was able to offer help through wellness practices in addition to dietary and supplementary suggestions. I felt like it was the full package, I would highly recommend.

Alana was very professional, yet warm and relatable. The visit did not feel clinical or sterile. She has a very non-judgemental approach to nutrition which I like. Alana was very informative about how small changes in eating could be beneficialtowards my specific health goals and listened intently to what I wanted.

Alana was so welcoming and I immediately felt comfortable sharing my concerns, asking questions, and discussing my dietary needs. She was so knowledgeable, but presented information in a way that was relatable and not overwhelming. She gaveme great recommendations and followed up with our meeting notes on the Healthie app right away. I am excited to meet with her again!
