What is Recovery Coaching?
A recovery coach is a friend, companion, and advocate who wants to help guide you to achieve your goals in recovery. The difference is that this friend has been through the process of recovery and has the knowledge and information you need to expertly guide you on your journey.
We won’t tell you what to do or what we think you should be doing. That’s not our place. And, we can’t and won’t do the work for you, but we are here to make sure you do the right work, according to your recovery goals.

First and foremost, I want to thank you for taking the time to check out this page. #Grateful
Of the many things I’ve learned about myself is that my success in sobriety is directly tied to those I work with. Of course, I absolutely love what I do in helping people like you achieve successful and lasting sobriety, but if I were here just for your sake or I was somehow here to fix you then I would be some kind of self-important jerk and a prisoner of my own ego.
Rather than view you as someone I can egoically bestow my knowledge upon, I believe you are the most valuable resource in my recovery. I need you, maybe even more than you need me. Because of this unique win-win relationship that I know is true and possible, I invite you to have a conversation with me.
Let’s talk and see what the future has to offer us both.
