Ali is the owner, clinic director and lead practitioner at The Spring. Her professional career and passion for whole-body health originated from her own search for hope and success in taking charge of her health and wellness.
In 2006, Ali was misdiagnosed with the autoimmune disease Lupus. After nearly 10 years fighting a disease she never had, with a regiment of doctors and specialists and endless prescription drugs, she finally hit her breaking point. There had to be a better answer.
Ali explored new approaches to treatment: integrative medicine, food, natural herbs and supplements and lifestyle changes. She felt immediate relief and improvement. A few years later, she finally found the root cause to her lifelong health battle – Chronic Lyme disease and at least fifteen other infections. After a year of dedicated recovery, using her natural and alternative approach to healing, supported by forms of Nutrition Response Testing, Ali was able to become Lyme-free and live a healthy life.
Ali’s recovery has instilled in her the sincerest belief that good health can be a reality for anyone. Her mission is to help others who are searching for hope and for a life well lived.
Ali is a graduate of the Advanced Clinical Training of Ulan Nutritional Systems using Nutrition Response Testing. She also received an honors certification in Nutritional Consulting from Bauman College, with a focus on food as medicine to support both acute and chronic conditions.
Ali’s approach goes beyond the “quick fix” to create long lasting improvement. She works with clients as they get curious – not judgmental – about their habits, symptoms and relationship with their bodies on their health journey.
What Our Clients Say
"Ali has been absolutely wonderful and is mindful of the whole picture and longevity of what this experience offers. She is so emotionally intelligent and is patient and supportive through the entire process but key during the hard times. I absolutely recommend her and I am so happy to have her in my life as a mentor and holistic health advisor. She is the best thing you can do for yourself."
"I was having severe medical issues that doctors couldn’t explain or fix, and a family friend recommended I go to The Spring. Within the first two sessions, I had answers and now 4 months later, I feel like a whole new person. Ali and co. at The Spring changed my life and helped me get my health back. I will be grateful for them for the rest of my life."
"I started seeing Ali in the middle of January after months of toying with the idea of working with a holistic practitioner. I've suffered from stomach issues for 10+ years (I'm 25 now) and started developing horrible cystic acne after a few months of getting off of the BC pill last year. Working with Ali has changed my life in so many ways beyond health and nutrition. She is a light and has a true gift. Now that it's been almost 3 months, I can confidently say I have never felt more connected to my mind and my body, nor have I ever felt and looked this good from the inside-out."
"I used to feel this enormous weight on my shoulders to make all the right decisions for my kiddo’s health and nutrition. While I think MDs are great at emergency care I’ve never felt comfortable putting my kids in their hands when it comes to their nutrition, preventive care or providing a more natural approach when they do get sick. Since the kids have been seeing Ali that weight has been lifted. She is also special when it comes to connecting with kids. Her genuine nature and how she explains things in a way that is easy to understand and makes sense to kids is awesome!"
"I felt an overall sense of not being well, mainly intestinal difficulties daily. My blood sugar levels were really close to diabetic levels, if not over that. After working with Ali for two months I feel really good! I now know what’s causing the intestinal problems and when I avoid that I don’t have problems. I took my blood sugar numbers today and after eating, they were within the normal range and my fasting number was lower than it has been in years - I am very excited about this!"
"I felt a lot of inflammation in my belly, my energy fluctuated a lot and I had very irregular sleep. Overall, my diet seemed off and I was confused as to why I had high cholesterol. After working with the ladies at The Spring, I feel lighter and my mood has improved. The quality of my sleep is much better and my energy is more sustained. I have a better understanding of my nutrition and am happier about my dietary habits."
"Ali has helped me unlock the best version of myself and I feel so grateful to be a client of hers. I am so used to feeling so dang good and full of energy/life every day that when those "off" or "bad" days happen, I know that it's temporary and fleeting. Although my journey is not near complete, I'm excited to continue on this journey of healing with Ali and the rest of the staff at The Spring. If I could, I would have everyone I love come to Ali at The Spring!"
