If you have ever said…

“I don’t recognize myself” or “I don’t feel like myself anymore.”

I thought my friends and family would be there for me but they disappeared.”

They said I was “too much” and my grief went on for too long.”

“I’m sick of people telling me what to do,” and “I just want my life back.” 


Working with me, either 1-on-1 privately for 6 months or a year, either in-person or virtually

or by joining my 12-week group program, RECONNECT, can help.



In-person or virtual for a 6- or 12-month engagement


I meet you where you are so you have the support you need to move through your grief to live fully and even find true love again, if you wish.


Every grief journey is personal. There is no ‘right’ way to grieve, only the best way for you. You can make it alone but it’s much easier with support from someone who already knows the way, like me.


I honor and listen to what my clients want and, together, we create your path back to:

  • trusting yourself at work and play

  • trusting your community to have your back

  • trusting that the world still has amazing opportunities waiting for you


12-week Group Program, starting in the Fall 

Reconnect, re-engage, reinvent and rebuild your life after loss. This 12-week group program provides actionable strategies and a supportive community for those who have experienced a loss to move forward, reconnect and build new networks of support. 


If you are ready to discover how to expand your relationships, book a call to find out how.


The 5 Cs to Take Back Your Life on Your Own Terms, at Your Own Pace, After Loss

Reconnect with Yourself, Re-engage in the World, Reinvent Your Identity and Rebuild Relationships Shaken Up by Grief

  • Confidence grows as you learn strategies to tap into your resilience and zone of genius to find solid ground in yourself

  • Competence increases as you start with small actions and use them as building blocks to move forward at work and with personal and professional relationships

  • Capacity expands as you begin to trust yourself, others and your possibilities in the world again

  • Clarity sharpens as you assess your priorities since the loss, experiment and chart a new path

  • Communication connects as you heal relationships disconnected by tears, anger or misunderstandings, and rebuild networks of support better



Over the 12 weeks of RECONNECT, participants will meet once a week with me on zoom for 90 minutes. Each session will include teaching, individual interaction and Q & A.

In addition, we will interact as a community in a private group daily, either on Discord or FB.

What Clients Say

Alison Pena has made an immeasurable impact on my life and career. Her insights and guidance have been instrumental in, not just coping, but thriving through personal, social and business challenges. Discussions of my interests and goals have enabled me to establish credibility within the business, technical and academic communities and have been requested to return to lecture and lead seminars at several universities.

Personally, I have grown from a “private person”, developing fresh relationships with family and friends to a degree I did not think possible as well as creating a vibrant professional network. Her support has also provided the context to effectively manage my personal finances and selfcare during this particularly stressful time. I have found her wisdom and on-going support invaluable.

I first met you on a sidewalk in NYC and your calm and comedic manner struck me instantly – you radiate that you’re at ease in your skin and it makes it so easy to be around you. I found myself wondering “what’s she got going on? I want some of that in my life!”  The next time I saw you was on stage – a presentation that made me cry because it resonated so deeply!

Our work together changed my life. I mean that, sincerely. Because of your commitment to sharing your knowledge and showing up, I have personally seen a transformation in how I care for myself, connect to others, and set (and ACHIEVE) insanely amazing goals that I never dreamed possible. To me, you are a brilliant.

And now, in seeing the way you are navigating David’s death, you are again showing me what it means to be true to yourself. True to your need and desire to connect, even in the depths of pain and loss. True to caring for yourself in the best way possible and reaching out and asking for what you need. I’m just in awe of how you continue to teach by example and how much I continue to learn from you. Thank you for sharing your brilliance and wisdom, your courage and vulnerability.

Alison is an incredible coach who helped me to see that I could shift the lens that I was looking at my life through. I brag we ended with one clear action step that feels really good and juicy to me! I brag that I can see now that it doesn’t have to always be so damn hard in the area of relationships!

I had the opportunity to do a business strategy session with Alison Pena, and it was incredibly beneficial.  Alison was able to ask the right questions and zero in on a block I was having to marketing to a particular group – a group where the deals are big and the stakes are high. Through a very innovative exercise, Alison helped me get to the root of the block and since then, the block has been gone. 

Alison also helped me hone in on the type of client I would be best aligned with.  She helped me see possibilities in a given target group that I never realized existed before.  Alison has a very sharp, strategic mind, yet what makes her unusual is her ability to integrate her keen business strategy with her personal development work, which helps you get to the root of the issue so you can truly make a seismic shift.  It was a gift to work with Alison, and I highly recommend her.

The Affluence Code coaching call with Alison Pena was amazing and rocked my resistance! I realize how I have tied up my struggle in life with how I look. Vulnerability: I have a belief that if I looked like Naomi Campbell I would act like her as well. So instead of being a stunning ebony goddess, I look like me.

Haven’t we all seen the report about how more attractive people make more money? So, boom! Obviously with my looks of course I wouldn’t be able to reach the upper echelons. I got that I really need to own my beauty or I will be forever trapped.
