Strengthening resilience in individuals and in organizations.

With 10 years of experience as a trauma therapist and career coach and 18 years of experience working for progressive community-based and national advocacy organizations, I am passionate about empowering people and organizations to make the world a more just, peaceful place. I provide psychotherapy to adults and offer training and leadership coaching to organizations who are committed to building resiliency and reducing the impact of toxic stress and vicarious trauma on clients and employees. I also provide individual career & leadership coaching, and behavioral health training and supervision. Learn more about my services.

Ali has a gift for understanding and supporting people and systems. She works through a lens informed by the impacts of trauma, race, and change and effectively combines her strong clinical skills with a profound access to empathy. I highly recommend her as both an organizational trainer and as an individual coach and therapist.
— Tracy Knight, Director of Social Services Bread for the City
Ali led a training for my company and helped us to better understand the impact of trauma exposure to our wellness in and out of work. She not only gave words to the way we were feeling but provided us with an understanding of the brain science... and as a result, we have team wellness covenants to ensure we are all taking the time we need to recharge and practice self care.
— Eve Kager, training client
Ali is a masterful clinician, coach, and trainer. She infuses a liberation-focused and trauma-informed lens into all that she does. She has a broad range of expertise in behavioral health integration and trauma-informed care. Ali thinks strategically about relevant information to share in trainings and conversations, and then seamlessly translates this knowledge to people at any stage of their learning.
— Rachael Schultz, trainee and supervisee
Ali is an amazing Life Coach. She was remarkable in helping me transition from a life in Boulder, CO that was no longer working for me, to a life in New Orleans, LA that held more opportunity. She’s calm in a storm, brings logic to utter confusion, challenges without being contrary and is simply one of the most empathetic and thoughtful people I’ve ever encountered. She always keeps the ‘big picture’ in mind, helping us to stay on course during our sessions. Her tools and techniques are masterful and she’s inspiring and fun to work with. I highly recommend hiring Ali as your personal Life Coach!
— Serra Wobbema, Coaching client



My greatest joy is helping people and organizations embrace their natural talents and live their full potential!

About Me

I have been helping individuals, leaders, and organizations strengthen their resilience, clarify their values, and leverage their strengths for 20 years.

As a therapist imbedded in primary care, I honed my expertise in behavioral health integration, trauma and the holistic healing practices that incorporate the body in recovery. I have led efforts and delivered training on trauma-informed practices to build resilient, collaborative organizations. And I've worked as a career and leadership coach to help clients pinpoint their passions, combat their fears, and develop plans to move forward in their lives and careers.   

With nearly 20 years of nonprofit management experience in organizations seeking immigrant rights, racial equity, and economic justice, I have experienced first-hand the impact of trauma and toxic stress on work cultures, and I am passionate about helping organizations and leaders build healthy, collaborative workplaces so they can increase their impact and make the world a better place.
