About Just Simply Alice

About Me

As a consultant, I want to help people both in their professional and personal lives with integrating better self care practices, strengthening relationships, offering relevant education, and providing space to help navigate difficult situations. I can also offer a unique perspective by incorporating the wisdom of nature to help normalize without invalidating the challenges of being human. (DISCLAIMER: I am NOT offering mental health therapy services, and will refer out if needed.)

By utilizing my extensive professional training combined with my creative and experiential style, I can offer a unique space to foster well being and growth. Please contact me for a FREE CONSULTATION if you feel like I can help you on your journey. And please check my REVIEWS from other people who have previously worked with me.
