Hi friends! I'm Danielle
I'm the brains behind
AlphaFemme Human Healing and Optimization.
I'm a Doctor of Physical therapy turned integrative life coach.
I'm an empath at heart with a deep desire to Help others merge the brain, body, and spirit.
Not your average Doctor
I attended West Virginia University and graduated with my doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2019.
Throughout PT school, I had many internal pangs of truth that maybe physical therapy wasn’t the career for me, but I was almost done and I was excited to finally be an independently practicing PT.
Or so I thought.
As I walked across the graduation stage, I felt no emotional energy move through me.
All I could feel was the impending pain that taking off a mask I had worn for 3 years might bring.
Fast forward a year.
I tried a part time gig in PT as an independent contractor.
All the freedom, but I was already burnt out.
It turns out that, despite tons of soul searching, research, investments in myself, I hadn’t yet considered the physical and emotional toll that sacrificing your deepest truth truly feels like.
Despite an honest effort, PT just wasn’t working for me.
So, I found myself at 28 years old with a DPT, a sense of impending doom about my career, and a deep longing to coach and counsel individuals.
Internally, I was embarrassed and isolated.
I thought I’d made a huge mistake, but I was terrified to let my soul die in a clinic.
Once you taste truth, there’s no going back.
I started to get anxious about student loans, the “what would people think”s, and the reality of how my body would handle 30+ years of patient care.
Eventually, I had the realization:
I have the experience, insight, passion, training, and enthusiasm to heal individuals...just in a non traditional/clinic way.
My personal vision is one that holistically addresses the individual and the individual first.
The way I practice as a coach is from an empowered lens vs. one of dependence that the “sick”care system promotes.
This whole life thing is about choosing what game you want to participate in.
MY PROMISE TO YOU:
With all of that said, it would be silly for me to question my validity as a integrative healing coach, for the lived experience of mental and emotional pain and suffering, transformation, and individuation is far beyond that which is only learned by a degree. My path isn't one that is on the straight and narrow. It's messy and complicated. But within the messy and complicated that life brings, my commitment to this business and those whom I serve is to continually expand with transparency. To let my ego strengthen and die over and over again so that I can learn the lessons and receive the invitations from that which is greater than myself so that my work in the world is what you deserve.
Here's to healing, starting with the individual.
All the love,
So, what is AlphaFemme?
I started AlphaFemme in 2019.
AlphaFemme is all about honoring and balancing the masculine and our feminine energies.
Our services are constructed in a way that qualities of the masculine and feminine are honored with the ultimate intention being a path that leads to wholeness, integration, and embodiment .
As humans we often experience what's called the liminal space.
This space is defined as a space where you have left something behind, yet, you are not yet fully in something else.
It involves embracing the mystery and power of transition from “what has been” to “what will be.”
This is what we do at AlphaFemme.
We guide individuals through that space whether it is physically, mentally, or emotionally.
Before this space, there may be:
“I just feel stuck,”
“I know there is more,” or
“I’m afraid I may upset someone.”
In this space is all of the limiting beliefs:
“I am unworthy”
“I am not strong enough to handle this”
“I am not going fast enough”
The strategies that come up here are the ones previously used in your life to only survive.
Here is where we name and we reintegrate those disintegrated parts of ourselves that we dislike the most.
This is where we turn with curiosity towards our inner, most authentic Self.

Feminine Qualities in the Embodied Program:
The AlphaFemme Values
We understand that without connection, there is no trust.
Without trust there is no safe space.
We want your journey to be a safe space where you feel seen, felt, and heard no matter what your current story is.
We refuse to stagnate.
Without growth, we are unable to open ourselves to the opportunities that life gives us to serve.
Without authenticity, again, there is no trust.
We want you to feel as if every part of our journey is one rooted in humanity.
That means publicly letting our egos constantly die.
Without the honest portrayal of our journey, we wear masks.
At AlphaFemme, we remove the masks to uncover our true selves.
We firmly believe you have the ability to change your own life, we just assist you with the use of our tools, skills, and coaching.
The work we do is not work.
We serve from a place that is life affirming.
Our services provide deep meaning to us and that’s exciting.
Our hope is that our passion is contagious and spreads into areas of your own life.
