Whether you found me as a result of searching for solutions to recovery from a substance or behavior, or whether you are recovering from illness, divorce, or loss of some kind in your life. I am here to give you tools for both healing and growth. This is a little different than your typical coaching program, this one is designed for those who want to get their life back on track.
About Me and Recovery Coaching
This site, this program, came about as a result of my own search to “fix” myself. I have since come to believe that none of us needs to be fixed, we just need to discover who we are and how to accept and love ourself. I have been caught up in several different compulsive unhealthy behaviors the major part of my adult life and tried everything to stop. I spent a small fortune trying anything and everything that offered hope to finally heal me and stop the insanity.
It was during this search that I started to explore alternative energy healing techniques such as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Reiki, Access Bars, PSTEC, and the Healing Codes. I did all the traditional work, therapy, Intensive Outpatient programs, 12 step programs, online programs, and tons and tons of self help stuff, and many of them helped to some degree. But I kept going back to my escape at the time. When I moved beyond one compulsive behavior I would find another so I knew I needed to figure out what it was that I was running from, face it, heal it, and let it go. In my own journey of recovery I have finally developed self acceptance (at least most of the time).
Once I thought I had it figured out I decided I needed to save everyone else as well and went back to school and got my Masters on Counseling. I am a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Life Coach. Once I started to work in the real world I quickly found that it is not about saving anyone, but more about support and guidance. Absolutely I can give people resources, help them identify their motivation, give them strategies, but in the end it really is up to each individual to do the work and make the changes.
One of the great things about many of the alternative therapies is that they can speed up the process by helping to alleviate some of the negative self-talk, let go of the limiting beliefs.
My Goal for this site
I hope that together we can explore where you are now, where you want to be, give you strategies to be more self accepting, help you learn how to love yourself, and then move towards having the incredible life you deserve. We all have that critical inner voice, we all have parts of ourself that we wish were different, but that is not the whole of who we are. When we can be okay with the whole of us, we can start to nurture and grow the parts of us that we love and stop focusing on the the wrongness of who we are.
That is where the energy work comes in, I will introduce you to EFT to let go of the critical voice, Access Bars, PSTEC, and Healing Codes to delete some of the old programming, Reiki for emotional healing. With Coaching I give you exercises for self reflection to identify who and where you are, and where you want to go. So browse my site, if you have any questions please reach out.
All my best,
