Alyson is the office manager at Sherwood Aesthetic Medicine and also runs the Holistic Health and Weight Management program. She has been with Sherwood Aesthetic Medicine since 2017. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Mental Health and a Master’s degree in Integrated Recovery for Co-Occurring Disorders and is also a certified nutritionist.
Having worked in a medical weight-loss setting prior to joining our team, Alyson witnessed the emotional journey people went on while trying to lose weight and become the healthiest version of themselves. Witnessing this journey made Alyson realize diet, body image, emotions, and environmental factors are at the root of disordered eating and became eager to learn how to help others live their healthiest and happiest lives. This connection fueled her desire to create a program that is not centered around weight but really gets to the heart of the issues that connect food to emotions.
When Alyson is not working with her client’s, she loves to read, explore the beauty the Pacific Northwest, experience the amazing food culture of Portland, and spend time with her two dogs, husband and daughter.
