I specialize in recovery-based life coaching for people seeking all aspects of well being: balance, clarity, focus, fulfillment, serenity, health and success. This means supporting clients recovering from the disease of addiction by guiding them through important decision-making processes with heart-centered purpose. Drawing out my client’s own inner wisdom and truth to transform challenges into meaningful change with an emphasis on wellness and mindfulness practices.
Part of recovery and avoiding relapse involves gaining new life skills and having a new vision for your life. One way to work through specific issues and continue learning and growing is by working in conjunction with a certified Recovery Coach. Recovery coaches focus on the present and future in helping clients make lifestyle changes, move forward to meet their goals and increase their life satisfaction. When working with a recovery coach you can ensure all client/coach communications are strictly confidential. Recovery Coaching is recognized as a key element of the new integrated treatment industry standard, Recovery-Oriented Systems Of Care.
What is a Recovery Coach?
Recovery coaching is the collaborative work done between a professional Recovery Coach and their client to take the client from where they are now to where they want to be. Clients who hire a recovery coach usually are seeking relief from their addictions, or are seeking to enter into recovery, or want to enhance their recovery, always looking for a safer, more balanced, happier life. Coaches help clients sustain positive life changes.
Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life and strive to reach their full potential.

Stages of Recovery
Something for Everyone
First 90 Days of Recovery
During the first 90 days of recovery, clients can expect to check-in via text message six (6) days a week, as well as meet once a week via video calling. This constant contact enables us to keep an open dialogue during this particularly unique time.
2-24 Months of Recovery
From two to 24 months of maintaining abstinence from the object of addiction one can expect to meet once a week via video calling.
2-5 years of Recovery – Maintenance
After two years of abstaining from the object of addiction, one can expect to meet once a month via video calling to review and update the Recovery Wellness Plan and address personal and life goals.
Dr. William F. Haning III, in his interview with Dr. Kevin McCauley in the movie Memo to Self, states in the first 5 years of recovery we should be receiving ongoing support and guidance to abstain from the object of our addiction. This means meeting with a sponsor, recovery coach, or social network of people also abstaining from that or other objects of addition.
