About My Clients

My clients seek recovery from dependency on substances, renewal for shattered relationships, positive self-esteem, and the guidance they need to succeed and sustain a new and improved life. Adults, both men and women, have changed their lives through this program. College students have regained their dreams and parents have earned back the trust and respect of their children and spouses. This program works for all people with any gender identification and may include couples sessions.

My Background and Approach

My personal experience with addiction recovery led me to serve others through this field of work. I have many behavioral health field certifications and I am licensed for addiction counseling in TN and hold a National certification as well. My focus in this practice however, is as a Recovery Coach. I believe the long-term recovery success of my clients is due to the accountability factors built into my program. My clients commit to a 3 month program consisting of private one-on-one sessions and a daily check-in process to build a solid new foundation. We work through obstacles like broken marriages, employment difficulties, communication short-falls and many other issues that follow addiction clients. Anyone can “check in” to an inpatient “treatment center” for a month, but how many leave with the requisite tools, support, and continued coaching guidance they critically need to actually sustain their sobriety? Not many I’m afraid. Treatment is just not enough.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My Recovery Coaching program is tailored for each individual and their specific circumstances. The program may include interventions such as mindfulness exercises, energy therapies, aroma therapy, chakra cleansing, or accu-detox. The program includes short and long-term goal setting, self-esteem building exercises, life coaching sessions and many other healing interventions.
