I’m Alana, a spiritually attuned counselor,
author and teacher, best known as

The Codependent Perfectionist.


I’m a mother of two and a passionate life-long learner.

I’ve wanted to be a therapist since as far back as I can remember.  After years of intense clinical experience, combined with my own personal journey, I created The Codependent Perfectionist framework for you, my fellow codependent perfectionists. I’m here to help you create new patterns and heal old wounds to radically change your life.

is a person’s unrealistic expectations for oneself and others that can be seen in different areas of our life such as parenting, friendships, work, and body image.

Codependency and perfectionism are pervasive in our culture and love to live as a pair. As a former struggler of both, I created The Codependent Perfectionist framework to free you from these destructive patterns and create a life of peace and joy.
