Hey, I'm Alyssa.

I'm glad you're here.


A few things about me

I’m a proud PhD dropout. I’m a nerd at heart, but this was the best pivot of my life.

600+ people read my newsletter, The Peel every week for perspectives and practices to help them pivot. Join us here.

I won a poetry contest in 7th grade. Not so coincidentally, the poem was on perspective shifts. I’ve been obsessed with human behavior for as long as I can remember.

I struggled with OCD for 12 years until I learned tools for dealing with uncertainty, cultivated a deep sense of resilience, and embraced compassion. Now, I manage it with far less effort. I believe the best mental health conversations start with mental well-being.

Your Turn

A little About You

If you’re on the fence about changing directions, unsure how to make changes that actually stick, or find yourself overly comfortable but secretly unfulfilled, you’re in the right place. 

This site is full of resources to help you pivot to a life you absolutely love. 

Summon your Inner Dora and explore. I’m here for you and believe in your ability to turn small pivots into the pivotal moments you look back on and think, “I am so glad I did that”.

"Alyssa kept me moving forward week after week. I felt like I was being held accountable by a caring mentor who had my back through it all."

"Working with Alyssa has not just changed my mind and poor habits in variety of behaviors I grew up with. It helped me become more emotionally aware of the triggers I had that I repressed for so long, that I never faced or overcame."

Daniel R.

"I would highly recommend working with Alyssa. She's a very knowledgeable and empathetic listener with an amazing toolset to help unlock the potential in people."

I was born out of a social science love triangle with undergraduate degrees in psychology and sociology and a Masters in communication.
