About Alissa

Hey there! I’m Alissa. I am the founder of LissMS, a resource for all things nutrition, fitness and mindset Alissaretouchrelated with a chronic illness twist. I started LissMS originally as a personal blog back in the day after being diagnosed with MS (read about that here), but now it has expanded to so much more than that. I work with people who are ready for a change in their current state of well being, whether that is through fitness, nutrition, mindset or all three! I especially enjoy working with individuals who are diagnosed with chronic illness. I utilize a holistic approach in my work and give them the tools to get exactly what they want out of life, which is to be feeling their best and thriving.

I am currently a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, licensed in the state of Massachusetts, and can see clients individually. 

I am also a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Onnit Academy Certified Trainer and am a Nutritional Therapy Consultant as well! 

When I am not seeing clients, I can be found at the beach with my husband, traveling to new places and spending as much time as possible outside. In August of 2015 I got married to the most (insert mushy gushy stuff here) man, and I’m lucky to have him.

A few m20150828_152130000_iOSore things you should know about me,

1.       I am a huge, HUGE Star Wars geek.

2.       I do eat a pretty strict paleo diet- AIP- (it helps with MS), but that doesn’t mean you have to.

3.       My favorite foods are coffee and chocolate, both of which I am taking a hiatus from at the moment.

If you want to learn more about what I do, send me a message in the ‘Work with me’ section, or sign up for my newsletter here! Thanks for visiting and I look forward to working with you!
