*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hello, my name is Katie and I’m an AIP and life coach. As a health and wellness expert, I am dedicated to helping you transform into the best version of yourself, on your schedule. My goal is to work with the client to help them build the future they desire and activate all the necessary resources they may potentially need on this journey to reach personal goals. It involves drawing out people’s strengths, helping them to bypass personal barriers and limits in order to achieve their best version of themselves. While working with my clients I’m concentrating on outcome-oriented goals rather than problems. In this way, I’m promoting the development of new strategies for thinking and acting rather than trying to solve the problems and past conflicts.

Janice Strand Nutritional Therapist, Gut & Psychology Syndrome Therapist, AIP Certified Coach Practitioner
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hello, My name is Janice Strand. I have over 35 years in Nutrition.
– B.S. In Nutrition
– Nutritional Therapist Practitioner
– Gut and Psychology Syndrome Practitioner
Being a mom, the worst thing is to see your child sick and suffer. My son has Celiac disease and years ago he was very sick. Doctors at that time could not help him. The desire for him to feel good lead me back to school. I earned my certification as a Nutritional Therapist, Gut and Psychology Syndrome Therapist, & Hypnotherapist. Today my son is a healthy grown man.
I treat every client as I did my son, I don’t give up!
Helping others with Autoimmune disease is my passion. I realize this can be a confusing time and often there is very little support for individuals or families managing diet & lifestyle. Oftentimes doctors don’t have time to explain why, how, or what we can do to improve our health. This is where I can step in. It is my hope for everyone to live a happy healthy life!
Nichelle Alderson Certified AIP & Holistic Health Coach; Certified Functional Nutritional Therapist
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide
Peaceful Greetings! I am Nichelle Alderson, a Holistic Healing Artist, providing psychotherapy, nutrition coaching and education. I am passionate about helping my clients achieve optimal health through bio-individual wellness and lifestyle plans, meeting them where they are at, and taking them where they want to go – by serving as a guide on a safe and supportive healing journey.
I offer a client centered and holistic approach that aims to bring to light the associations between diet, stress, family history, support systems/resources, life experiences, environment, and issues related to current and/or historical oppression, and how YOUR body, mind, and spirit have been responding.
I specialize in working with adult BIPOC (Black & Indigenous people of color) and their families with stress and blood sugar related issues including: autoimmune disorders, weight imbalances, chronic pain, adrenal fatigue, depression, anxiety, and ADD/ADHD.
In my early twenties, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and suffered from depression, ADD, and adrenal fatigue for many years. It took me years to fully understand what my body needed to restore balance. As a young single and Black mother, I just remember feeling overwhelmed with all of the advise, and just wished that I had someone to hold my hand and walk me through it all. I keep in mind while working with my clients.
I am credentialed as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker; Certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner; Certified Auto-Immune Paleo Coach; and Certified Professional Life, and Holistic Health & Wellness Coach – trainings that have provided a well rounded and holistic approach to my work.

Jelena Katić PharmD, Health & Lifestyle Coach , AIP Certified Coach
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide
The journey to vibrant health starts with your decision to take control of your health by making it your priority. It is achievable by providing clarity and support, faith in the process, consistency, and lots of love and tenderness for yourself.
This is a lifelong journey so the goal is to enjoy it and set yourself up for success by :
-falling in love with the idea of discovering and regaining your power and living your true self, so that every step becomes a victory.
-adopting your unique formula that nourishes your body, mind, and soul.
-finding and creating support within and around you as a solid foundation for your journey.
I have learned and adopted this holistic approach after 5 years of searching for solutions to many autoimmune issues in my family and the AIP Protocol is its basis.
Being an analytical and open-minded person with a pharmaceutical degree, I couldn’t accept the option that the root cause of those issues is unknown and that there is a one-size-fits-all approach.
Realizing how much benefit this experience brought to my family, I became passionate about spreading it further as a health and lifestyle coach.
My name is Jelena and I’m here to help you to develop a mindful approach to your body by following its rhythm and needs with understanding so that you can make healthy choices that support your body, mind, and soul.
Dr. Larissa Neumann Medical Doctor, Health Coach & AIP Certified Coach
Reichersbeuern, Bavaria, Germany
*Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hi, my name is Dr. Larissa Neumann.
As a German medical doctor and AIP Certified Coach with a history of celiac disease and G-protein-coupled-receptor-(GCPRs)-autoantibodies, I (virtually) support people with (chronic fatigue) to reclaim vigorous energy levels and ultimate aliveness. With the power of a holistic program based on a diet, predominantly comprised of nutrient-dense whole foods, and lifestyle changes which includes approaches of functional medicine, epigenetics, spirituality, meditation and mindfulness practices, it’s my desire to support my clients fulfilling their dreams of ALIVENESS.
Professional Background: As a medical doctor, my professional background is a five-year training in anesthesiology and intensive care medicine at two German university clinics. For two years, I researched as a clinical informaticist in the field of Biomedical Informatics at the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) of Munich, Germany, and at the University of California San Diego (UCSD), USA. Since 2022, I have been practitioning as an Health Coach, supporting people with (chronic) fatigue.
Personal Medical History: – My patient’s history began in childhood with recurring tonsillitis, adenopharyngitis and otitis of the middle ears. In adulthood I developed hay fever. In med school, I was diagnosed with celiac disease. – Anyhow, I was living a joyful life by following a strict gluten-free diet, exercising and caring for myself. Well, that was at least that what I thought how it was. Reality spoke something different in 2021! – At the age of 33, everything changed. Neurotransmitter autoantibodies, also known as G-protein coupled receptor (GCPRs) autoantibodies (AA) like ß1-, ß2- adrenergic and M3-, M4- muscarinic cholinergic receptor autoantibodies were found in my blood.
Symptoms were: Profound fatigue, sleep abnormalities, muscle pain, migraines, brain fog, post-exertional malaise (PEM), a sore throat, digestive issues (and a leaky gut), shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, hypoglycaemic blood sugars, and hypothermia. During crashes, I was not only house-bound but even completely bed-bound.
Transformation: Although this journey was a rough-one, it was the best thing that could happen to me. I learned how to follow a holistic program based on a nutrivore diet, functional medicine, epigenetics, spirituality, meditation and mindfulness practices. Now, it’s my passion to pass this knowledge to others and to support them in their healing journey.
My clients desire to:
– feel ultimate aliveness,
– reclaim vigorous energy levels,
– enjoy the prosperous power of their body,
– and transform from a victim of their symptoms into the creator of their lives.
E-mail me to schedule a charge-free 15-min phone call to check, if we match as a coach and coachee. I coach in English and German. I’m looking forward to hearing from you and your story. There is a way out!
With much gratitude, Larissa
Sierra Thompson Nordquist Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Herbalist
Hello my friend! I’m Sierra T. Nordquist, a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Herbalist, Eating Psychology Coach, and AIP Coach.
I am a self-proclaimed holistic health nerd and education junkie who loves to help others discover true nourishment for themselves.
I came into this work because of my personal journey with health, food and body challenges. I grew up with many chronic health issues including ongoing digestive distress, eating anxiety, food sensitivities, and autoimmunity in the form of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. These challenges are what ultimately drew me to pursue a career in nutritional therapy and eating psychology because it was through these methods and getting in-tune with what my body and being were asking for, that I was able to work through and heal my chronic health challenges as well as my relationships with food and my body.
I now have a passion for helping others to journey through their own health, food, and body challenges. In my work I help guide others to embrace, elevate and empower their inner wisdom using intuitive nourishment, herbal nutrition and holistic self-care practices so that they can learn how to release the stigmas of diet culture and intuitively know how to nourish in a way that best supports their unique bioindividuality & challenges with confidence & clarity. By doing so, I help them to learn the nuances of how they can nourish a healthfully happy lifestyle while feeling not just good but great in their body, mind and being.
Autoimmunity can feel like a complex and difficult challenge to face, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to go it alone. It is possible to reclaim your health & revive your life.
I look forward to supporting you along your path to better health and a life that feels joyous and just right for you.
