Hi, I'm Ally!
Coach and Owner/Founder of Ally Bouchard Coaching
I'm a 6/2 Emotional Projector, Somatic Mental Health Coach & Exercise Physiologist, and a loving wife & mother (among many other things).
It's a passion of mine to help women become more connected to their bodies and feel empowered to BE powerful. Whether it's through healing stored trauma through my Somatic Mental Health program, stepping into the Queen Energy of my Feminine Leadership program, or knowing yourself better through understanding your Human Design, my work is designed to help you heal the body and mind and embody your most authentic self to become the leader of your LIFE!
In 2011 I achieved my BS in Exercise Physiology. The early stages of my career took me into personal training and cardiac rehab. Next, I ventured into medical offices and clinical fitness spaces, all with a focus on bettering people's lives through health. Throughout these first years I was also battling my own body image issues along with anxiety and depression. I had the knowledge of health (or so I thought) but couldn't seem to heal myself. Many of the women I was working with were sharing similar experiences and stories of feeling stuck and struggling to change.
My passion for my own healing and supporting my patients led me deeper into understanding the body. I was looking at the physiology of stress and the psychology of health knowing in my gut that this goes beyond what you eat and how you move. That's when I discovered coaching.
I focused my efforts on stress, but more specifically on the stress caused by external ideals of health and body image for woman. The focus was around creating a better relationship with body, exercise, and food for both me and my patients. I accomplished this through Intuitive Eating and intuitive exercise practices. Together, we were redefining our relationship with our bodies and what makes us healthy from an intuitive and self-identifying place. It was truly transformative.
My love and passion for the human body and human experience lead me further into mental health, somatic coaching, spirituality, and eventually human design. My evolution and experience has taught me that the mind, body, and soul all work together. To live a well-rounded and fulfilling life you must be working with all three, which my system supports.
I really believe that we are on this earth to have fun, enjoy our life, and make an impact. And I believe that starts with loving yourself and your body by stepping into your power to create a life in which you thrive.Ally Bouchard
What it's like working with me
As a projector in human design, you will feel deeply seen when working with me. My approach is loving and honest and gets to the root of the issue quickly but can sometimes feel painful to confront. However, the reason most of my clients are stuck and unhealed is because they haven't faced their pain. To do so, we work with somatic healing of the body as well as acquiring skills for nervous system regulation & emotional management while equally addressing any thoughts or beliefs that are holding you back. At the end, you will feel so deeply connected to yourself - mind, body, and soul - that you cannot fathom how you lived life without this deep self-knowingness.
To know your body is to know yourself. We receive so many messages through our bodies that we deny or ignore due to trauma or preconceived notions of how we should be. My work with you will reconnect you to your body and dismantle these notions to allow for your true, powerful self to emerge and lead.
I also work with each client's human design. Human design is a beautiful combination of ancient spiritual teachings and quantum physics. Working with your human design helps you to know yourself better and connect with your intuition. You can get started on your own by discovering your design for free here. You can then download my FREE guide to Making Better Decisions Based on your Human Design to better understand your own intuition and start down the path of your human design experiment.
I have experience working with a multitude of issues including cardiovascular and diabetic disease, body image, relationship issues, menstruation and womb health, self-confidence and self-love, communication, workplace stress, work / life balance, parenting, and much more. It's not so much the issue at hand that we need to solve, but uncovering who you want to be in these areas of your life.
I offer a FREE Discovery Session for anyone on the fence and wanting to understand more of what this relationship will feel like. There is no sales pitch unless you want further information on how to work together.
Also available is a low cost Intro to Human Design Session. You will receive a pre-recording of the basics of your design, a 90-minute session with me, and 1-week follow up of Voxer support for integration of what you learned.
I can't wait to support you on this journey!

I live at the intersection of science and spirituality, and love talking dirty and laughing until it hurts.
I got my Bachelor's in Exercise Physiology after my return to exercise brought me out of my first depression as a freshman in college. I bring the love and knowledge of the body to everything I do.
I love coffee and am obsessed with cute coffee mugs, but I can't tolerate caffeine
I originally thought I would be a teacher and still have a teacher's heart. My teaching desire shifted from educating the youth to empowering the adults.
My favorite music is 2000's pop-punk and alternative rock - hand me a shot of tequila and you have yourself a party!
Stop being afraid of being yourself- Ally Bouchard
What If You Could Change Your Life In The Next 90 Days?
I can honestly say my work with Ally has been life changing. As a former beauty pageant contestant I struggled for half my life with yo-yo dieting, obsessing over food, and criticizing my body. As a result, I was missing out on the simple pleasures in life for fear of gaining weight. Now, I finally feel freedom when it comes to how I view food. I no longer obsesses over carbs and calories and know how to choose foods that nourish and fuel my body. I am forever grateful for her and this program for giving me the opportunity to know how to love myself again.
My work with Ally has been tremendous. I started with Ally feeling a bit depressed, lethargic, and footy brained. She allowed me to think more positively about my body, life, and journey through health and has taught me how to listen to my body and not overwork myself. She has a way of getting you to think differently and positively about the journey you are on and the potential she sees in you. She is a very genuine and warm person to work with and made my health transition easy.
As a coach, Ally made it easy to open up and communicate. I feel like I not only had a coach but a friend. I had tried for many years to make changes in my health on my own and she helped me achieve my long-standing goals and gain the confidence I was lacking not only in the gym, but in life. I made the decision to invest in myself and work with a coach and have never regretted it. I am a better person today because of it.
I am so happy about my experience with Ally. I felt like I was facing a giant challenge impossible to overcome. Ally has helped me view health differently, and made me realize the control I have in my body and my health. Ally has been extremely understanding, truthful, and free of judgement. I have never been so honest with myself, in control of my life, and ready to succeed than I am now.
The best thing about Ally's coaching style is her reassuring approach. I completed cardiac rehab after open heart surgery and came to Ally apprehensive about the future of my health and looking for a sustainable path forward. In addition to the physical changes of increased strength and flexibility, my confidence in my body's ability to sustain health and wellness through the rest of my life has gone up tremendously. Her open and authentic dialogue allowed for the honest sharing of my concerns which set the stage for realizing my true potential.
