To give all my clients hope for long-term recovery and support you in living a productive and addiction-free life. I do this through teaching a variety of techniques which promote self-soothing, emotion regulation and craving reduction.
As a Relapse Prevention Coach, I strive to help you make new discoveries about yourself and develop the internal resources to help you overcome the obstacles you face. My clients trust me to guide them on their journey to achieve the goals they set for themselves. As someone who understands the transformative power of inner work, I’m passionate about learning, listening, and bringing balance and wellness to the lives of my clients. I enjoy working with people from all walks of life, so if you or someone you love is going through a difficult time of depression, anxiety, or another mental health or addictive issue, please contact me to setup a consultation.
I seek to tailor my approach to your individual needs. I help you to explore your conflicts and problems and how you personally experience them. I then work with you to explore and understand the patterns of behaviors and emotions that are blocking your progress in recovery. We find new solutions, bringing about a new experience of security and confidence which then help to move you forward towards your recovery goals.
My Coaching Philosophy:
I believe that recovery is like a four-legged stool. Each leg helps the other to maintain balance. If a leg is missing, then you must keep so busy trying to balance that you have no time for anything else. The four legs of recovery are physiological, psychological, social and spiritual. I believe that helping you balance these four aspects will aid you on your way to recovery and freedom from the oppression under which you have been living. I am highly experienced in helping people strengthen and balance each leg of the stool. Many people struggle with the spiritual aspects of addiction and recovery because of previously abusive or highly legalistic approaches to the religious life, which itself can take on addictive quailities. I want to support you in finding or creating a healthy approach to spirituality that honors your integrity as a human being.
