Integrative Nurse, Health and Thriving Coach

Alli, owner of Menu To Thrive, is a pioneer of the inaugural class of Integrative Health Coaching (IHC) at the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. IHC is a client-centered, relational approach to working with individuals collaboratively to address the health and wellbeing of the whole person. It acknowledges the interdependent roles of the mind, body, and spirit and the innate healing capacity within each person. Alli has completed over 100 hours of training in IHC and Motivational Interviewing. She uses the core aspects of both approaches to offer a supportive and creative relationship for her clients to elicit change. She works with individuals and groups to stimulate internal motivation and a sense of purpose. Allison guides the individual to connect their life purpose and personal values with their health goals.

Alli combines her educational background in traditional medical practices with a keen interest in holistic health to provide a tailored coaching program that really helps the client make real, measured progress towards goals. She provides keen insight into the barriers and challenges that sometimes prevent us from being able to reach our goals. While I had merely hoped to gain some coping skills for significant stress and health challenges, I walked out of our coaching relationship with so much more. I now have a deep understanding of my goals and strengths as well as those things that often derailed me. Alli goes the extra mile in every way to provide a welcoming, enriching experience. Her coaching enabled me to make real, tangible changes in all aspects of my health.”

“What a pleasure to work hand in hand with Allison! I was on a roller coaster of health and nutrition and I really needed to change. Allison focused on what was most important to me, by revealing insightful questions that helped me form a plan that worked for me. I never felt anything but support and meaningful guidance during our sessions. In between sessions I was able to use her suggestions as motivators and tools, which were highly effective. Her compassionate and caring nature helped me to realize my true potential, and begin seeing food and nutrition in a new way. Her commitment and warmth enabled me to deeply connect to my true self. Her work is transformational.”

“I can not say enough about how positive my experience was with Allison! I gained more than I would have ever thought! I’ve always been compliant with good nutrition and exercise habits; but as she had me evaluate all of the areas that are the Core Values of Health. Allison always had a great voice and wonderful techniques to bring me into focus (even if I had my kids running around and other things going on!). I still use some of the techniques she taught me to bring me into focus when my day seems to be going in every wrong direction. I have learned how to step back and close my eyes and think of what is most important to my core values system, allowing me to avoid being brought down by external negativity that can surround us at times. I highly encourage anyone to try Menu To Thrive! I am so happy for what I gained through this experience!”

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Alli as a friend …and as my health coach. I am an enormous fan of her wisdom, ambition, wit, enthusiasm, strength & warmth. Through the time I have known Alli, I have witnessed her to speak, act and live all the words of her purpose. She is a deeply gifted guide and is able to help others understand and practice Integrative and holistic Nutrition. As a coach, Alli gives full expression to the wealth of hard won nutritional, physical and emotional knowledge that she has amassed, imparting to her clients the means to reach a balanced lifestyle. By taking many small leaps, and with the right support, I made giant, permanent changes in my life by combatting stress and health issues. She helped me learn better to co-create my tomorrow by making choices that were aligned for me today.”
