Transformative Wellness is a nutritional therapy and life coaching practice with the mission of helping you heal from the ground up, starting with the roots of problems, not the symptoms. I work with anyone, anywhere via phone, Facetime, or Skype, and folks in SE Michigan in my office, located in downtown Ypsilanti.
My practice is for everyone—my work is affirming and welcoming to the queer, trans, intersex, POC, immigrant, and Muslim communities, and is fat positive, mental health/difference affirming, and shame-free environment.
My mission is to provide quality care to all people regardless of age, gender identity, orientation, skin color, economic status, or religion. I’m committed to social justice and firmly believe that everyone has the right to health, which is why I offer need-based scholarships to anyone who qualifies.

Who am I?
My name is Lark Malakai Grey. I self-identify as a Radical Queer Healer. I’m a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, life coach, amateur herbalist, tarot reader, and writer. I founded Transformative Wellness in January of 2017.
To me, Radical Queer Healing is about making healing affordable, meeting folks where they are at, honoring each person as an individual and not judging anyone for their limitations, being respectful and knowledgeable about different identities, and believing my clients when they share their stories. It is also about firmly rejecting both the paradigm of western medicine’s dismissal of folk’s symptoms and the paradigm of alternative medicine’s shaming and policing of the way folks live their lives.
I became interested in nutrition in 2012, when my partner was dealing with severe Crohn’s disease and we had neither money nor insurance to treat it. I read everything I could find about alternative healing methods, and successfully halted his disease--in fact, he doesn’t have Crohn’s anymore, which is just the coolest! In the process, I discovered that I liked practicing that kind of nutrition, and even better, was really good at it. I pursued an official education in nutrition through the Nutritional Therapy Association, and became a certified NTP in 2016. I have also lived with/through so many health issues that I have personal experience with just about everything my clients come to me with—Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, chronic gut issues, adrenal fatigue, mental illness… So I am able to speak to them (YOU!) from a place of experience, not just education.
