Feed your dog a species appropriate diet whether cooked or raw. Food is the basis of all life and if your dog has any unbalances you may be able to help with a custom diet tailored to your dog’s specific needs.
I utilize a wide range of techniques to address a number of common issues pet parents might be having with their dog. Myo-fascial release, Swedish massage, TMJ, acupressure, Gua Sha, stretch work, and red light therapy.
There are so many factors to consider when using aromatherapy with animals and working with a certified aromatherapist means your dog or horse is receiving the maximum therapeutic benefits of essential oils.
Your dog is your mirror but we as humans often don’t recognize what is happening within us also affects our dogs. Coaching sessions focus on individual life coaching as it relates to your dog and the life you want to build together.

Welcome, I’m Alicia!
I help pet parents uncover the mind, body, and spirit of their dogs through complimentary wellness services. I’m passionate about helping dog parents navigate life with their dog from a holistic, heart-centered place!
I started working with animals over 10 years ago in the dog rescue world learning hands-on from veterinarians, trainers, consultants and more.
I am a certified Canine Massage Therapist (CMFT), Animal Aromatherapist, & Reiki Master.
I’ve had almost every job in the animal rescue world but the biggest job and challenge I’ve faced has been taking care of my very special needs dog, Mylah.
When Mylah was diagnosed with diabetes at the very young age of 10 months old, my world changed. It began to revolve around her and doing everything I could to give her a happy and healthy life.
“My foster dog had recently been diagnosed with diabetes. I didn’t have tons of experience on this condition and was redirected to Alicia for advice and support. She talked me through everything and provided me a great amount of knowledge! I am very grateful for her coaching me through this and I feel my foster’s health has benefited greatly. In fact, now that his diabetes is under control we are adopting him ”

Izzy is sitting at one of my favorite places to buy local produce and of course, pumpkins! With all the love for decorative pumpkins this time of year, I thought I’d share some tips on the pumpkin we feed to our dogs. Pumpkin is classified as a Cucurbitaceae, belonging to the gourd family of flowering plants. Pumpkin contains many anti-oxidants including Vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is what gives orange veggies and fruits its color. High in fiber too, pumpkin is usually what dog parents seek out for tummy troubles.read more
