Creating Food Freedom For Everyone
Because you deserve to live without restriction
Food is not the enemy. Our work together will be a collaboration. One that is fueled by your individual preferences, goals, and physical makeup. All recommendations will be created uniquely to resolve symptoms and to empower you in your health journey. I love working with women who, like myself, struggle with the “right” way to do it.

What You Can Expect
Hear from our clients
“Alona is wonderful. In talking with her, I was able to identify several very important red flags about my attitude with food and my diet in general that changed my perspective and allowed me to alter my diet to better suit my body's needs. Alona is extremely thorough, thoughtful, and informative. I would recommend her services 100%.”Kendall M
“Working with Alona was amazing. She made me look at nutrition in a new light. Yes, I know the basic things that everybody comes to the table with; however, she made me reflect on my inner body. I started to listen to how my body responds to certain things and then I realized how to use nutrition to get the desired response. Alona also made me appreciate my body and my DNA make up. Being afro-latina I will be more curvy and carry my weight differently and that is okay. Nutrition/Food should be taught with a positive light and not shame. That is what Alona is doing.”Deja S
“Alona made herself incredibly available, listened with the discerning ear of a therapist, and provided feedback that not only addressed nutrition they way I “know” it, but also provided holistic insight into the ways balancing my food, supplement, and athletic work, would endeavor me to more quickly and safely meet my long term goals. Time and circumstances didn’t lend me to work with her for a lengthy period, but I’m confident our paths will cross when I’m able, and I look forward to that future support!”Lanaya V
“As someone who takes her health seriously, when the opportunity to work with a nutritionist like Alona came up, I knew I had to take it. Alona took the time to get to know my history, my family's history, my relationship with food, needs and dislikes when it comes to what I eat, my workout plans and journey, and so much more... which in turn, allowed her to create a truly customized plan to see how I could work on improving my nutrition. She helped me look at WHY I eat some of the things I do and how I could work to create healthier habits, all without shaming me or making me feel like I'd done something "wrong". I appreciate her approach to food and her reminders that we should still enjoy what we fuel our body with. She helped hold me accountable during my work with her and helped me begin to reframe how I look at my nutrition. Thank you, Alona!”Kristina D
