I’ve been in recovery from substance use disorder for many years. I’m also in a recovery process from other things - grief, trauma, mental illness, and being differently-abled. Being active in my recovery is an incredibly important part of my life, and I’m grateful for how it challenges me to always seek, grow and learn.
We’re all recovering from something, and in that, there is hope. There is so much love, light, and beauty in the world. Sometimes we need help to see it.
My work is to help you do that.
Recovery Coaching is a strengths-based, one-on-one approach that promotes self-efficacy in achieving one's goals for recovery, health and wellness, empowering them to make positive choices for themselves. It assists with accessing resources, removing barriers, and building resilience.
As a Recovery Coach Academy Facilitator, I’m certified to teach all of the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery’s Recovery Coach courses. CCAR is the national leader in this type of training.
Recovery coaching is a philosophy that sees each person as their own best resource, believing that the answers they seek, and everything they need, already lies within them.
A good coach is simply a guide to help that person discover their own beliefs, strengths, goals and path.
This same philosophy can be applied to any type of facilitation or learning process. I use these principles in all of my projects to bring out the best in people and help them discover the stories and strengths that lie within.
