You are so welcome here. Now, you might be asking yourself, where is here? Here is where I tell my story.
You have landed at my blog, Intuitively Alexandra. My story starts when the global pandemic hit the States in March 2020. I took the opportunity to look at my life critically for the first time in a long time. Like so many others, I had the chance to really take stock. I’ll be honest, it wasn’t pretty. Here’s where I found…
I felt stuck. On the outside everything seemed great. I was happy and healthy. But, on the inside I felt empty. I was on a roller coaster of bad body image, dieting, and exercise. It filled my head, it broke my heart, it took up all the extra space within me. I felt like I had lost my spark. All I was, was a vessel of diet culture. I had spent years as a disordered eater, at war with my body. I dieted, I whittled away at my body, I binged, I restricted, I cleansed, I pinched, I detoxed, I weighed, I measured, and I was never happy. Sure, on the outside I seemed great. However, this was all bubbling right below the surface. Enough was enough. This couldn’t be the story of my life.
Not to mention, the world was (and still is) in crisis. I began to ask myself, how can I fight for the world I want, if I can’t even fight for myself? So, on a whim I signed up for Maria Scrimenti’s program (Check her out here. She’s amazing, and is now my mentor and dear friend).
Once and for all, I broke the cycle and become the woman of my dreams. I adopted the Intuitive Eating lifestyle (created by Evelyn Tribole & Elyse Resch), and that of Body Kindness (by Rebecca Stritchfield). These transformed my life and my relationship with myself. I fell in love with myself, my body, my mind, and my spirit, and I found my spark again. There is so much more to me than diet culture let me believe.
Now I help other people find the same freedom by healing their body image, ditching diet culture, and reimagining what it means to be healthy at any size. I am a certified Coach with my own business, Intuitively Alexandra LLC. Everyone deserves to be their most authentic, beautiful selves.
I work with my clients to kindle their inner fire, make peace with their body, and honor their individuality in compassionate and thoughtful ways. I am honored to be a mirror to show each client the wonders that they are. Once we’ve made space for ourselves, then we can move forward into the world kinder, more thoughtful, and more empowered than ever before.
So, that’s a bit of my story. It feels so good to be here. I’m optimistic about the future. Thanks for stopping by, I am so glad you’re here.

Let me assist you in becoming everything you’ve ever wanted to be and everything you already are!
