Years ago, after a sudden loss, I began struggling with anxiety and realized I needed to learn how to calm down! Back then, I had acquired Degrees in Education, Music & Psychology. I was already teaching school and had my own thriving biz as a piano teacher. I had no idea that anxiety could be so debilitating as well as motivating. I was driven to study countless healing modalities, became a Certified Yoga Instructor, Strategy Coach and Laughter Yoga Leader.

Today, I use my skills, knowledge and intuition to help you calm down through coaching, speaking, delivering seminars,  and through my live and online programs. I have led laughter workshops to corporate groups and have been featured on Daytime Television and on CTV news.

"Thanks so very much for another very relaxing and empowering coaching session last night. I slept incredibly well and feel so much stronger, wiser and less vulnerable today. Your insights into my tendencies and the simple yet powerful techniques you gave me to help me think and feel differently are things I could never have figured out on my own. I now have tools I can pull out whenever and wherever I need to feel more grounded, strong and calm. Best of all, I felt completely safe and comfortable opening up to you. I am grateful for all you have taught me and can’t wait to have another session soon.”With appreciation"

"Ali came into my life during a very difficult period when I was struggling with unexplained health issues. I felt that she understood my anxiety immediately and she helped me move forward from there. She is generous with her time and with sharing her skills-during our very first phone call she guided me through a very powerful relaxation that I shall never forget. If you require reality based coaching to help you get on with your life, I would strongly recommend working Ali"
