Working with Me
Working with me means looking closely at all areas and aspects of life as YOU define. We then create action steps toward achieving your goals.
Whether you are wanting to make a shift toward a healthier life style, live in line with your values, or get back your time and life, I am here to work with you on creating a life well lived, as defined by YOU. Along with my unique coaching technique we also read inspiring literature, which we don’t just use intellectually, but rather put the concepts into action, define values, realign and re-balance our lives, wake up everyday with mental clarity and live purposefully.
During recovery obstacles, challenges, and obstructions call our attention. When working together we’ll address these by developing the skills and strategies to handle situations that arise, as they arise, and learn from the experience.
The clients I work with are the most intelligent, driven, emotionally and spiritually connected individuals I have ever met. Each has their our reasons for turning to substance abuse and an equally good reason for turning toward recovery. Their journey now is to navigate back to their path; the path to happiness, joy and freedom. Which is where I come in. I help jump start and sustain growth and evolution during the process of regaining health and sobriety.
When in an addictive cycle, one cannot live a full life. It takes time to source, abuse, withdrawal and recover from the use of any substance. When in recovery we work diligently to free ourselves of this cycle: mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. In doing so we literally get our lives back, our time, our emotional and physical energy. We get it all back.
Recovery From What?
I help clients recovering from alcohol abuse, tobacco use, and eating disorders. I have direct experience recovering from these disorders of compulsion and self-harm, which I have recovered from and continue to work toward my recovery goals, which is why I am dedicated to helping people achieve their own recovery goals. It is my belief that addiction is a compulsive thought to self-harm, and therefore believe I can help those ready to rewire their brains creating healthy mental patterns. This starts with the physical addictions, then moves toward the mental, and finally the emotional aspects of why we have a compulsion to self-harm.
My Background, Training, and Expertise
I have a Recovery Coach Certification through the State of Idaho, Mindfulness Based Substance Abuse Treatment Certification through the Center for Adolescent Studies, Meditation and Psychotherapy training, and a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification through the Yoga Alliance. I use the recovery coaching model taught and approved by Idaho Health and Welfare, as well as the Idaho Board of Alcohol/Drug Counselor Certification. This sprinkled with Eastern spiritualism, Stoic philosophy, and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Substance Abuse Treatment techniques.
My expertise comes from my training and my own experience moving into substance abuse, overcoming internal and external obstacles, and recovering. I bring this to my clients in a unique and holistic manner.
Coaching is Different
Coaching is different than working with a counselor or a sponsor. In coaching we focus on the present circumstances, not what led us to them. We’ll identify obstacles currently happening in your life, create sustainable goals, and take action steps for a better future. I do encourage my clients to also work with a counselor to gain further support toward mental health.
Is it like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)?
AA is a non-profit meant to support those seeking sobriety. Its 12 steps are greatly powerful for some. If you like the 12 step process, great. If not, great. Recovery coaching is different in the way we approach recovery. We take an active approach to regaining physical, mental and emotional health. I encourage and guide my clients to do whatever they need to do to remain on the path to sobriety. These supports include working a coach, a counselor, family and friends, job/ career, ongoing education, and community groups (AA, meditation groups, ski clubs, etc.).
