Alison is great at getting down to the essence of a thought process or issue and putting it plain terms.

“I love working with Alison! She is supportive, empathetic and very compassionate. . .

She has been critical in helping me get out of my head. I have realized that I have to start taking small steps and stop overthinking. But you need a good mentor like Alison who can help you do that effectively. She’s also wonderful at finding and connecting you with resources and connections that can help you fulfill your goals. Highly recommended!”

Take the masterclass on medical self-advocacy so you can build your support network

Instead of being a passive patient, you can be a partner in managing your condition through actively seeking the right medical partners and thoroughly understanding your own medical needs.
  • I’ve been the unsure patient being overprescribed medications to treat the side effects of other medications – and learned how to question both the treatment plan and the diagnosis
  • I’ve had doctors with pet diagnoses convince me to take “less invasive” but more painful AND LESS ACCURATE testing
  • I’ve learned how to recognize those doctors and tendencies, and how to make the necessary requests, decisions, and adjustments to avoid the worst damage and get to the quality information more quickly.
  • I offer this program and my coaching packages specifically to help folks like you who are dealing with a health condition and aren’t sure how to find the right doctors and communicate clearly with them so that you get the quality diagnosis and care that you deserve.
