Executive Recovery Coach
Newly sober or not-yet-abstinent individuals will benefit most from a more directive coaching approach. If you are trying to get sober and still struggling with abstinence, you need to bring all the resources you can to that fight. As a part of that multi-faceted approach, I provide the necessary coaching and therapy as you navigate this new landscape.
It is HARD to do. It may seem obvious, but not deliberately accepting this truth can set you up for failure. Many alcoholics are lone wolves, especially high-achieving individuals, who often resist connection and help. This is the second attitude we need to address. Getting sober is not a goal to be done alone. To maximize success, you want an experienced and trained guide.
The substance was the answer to problems that existed before you ever used until it became a separate problem. We need to treat the whole person, not just the addict or alcoholic. Most coaches got their training in the rooms of AA and at weekend workshops. I have been in continuous recovery since 1988, and have a clinical master’s degree in addiction studies, so I can go deeper and provide the support necessary to address the challenges that led to your addiction or alcoholism. I come to this work after more than thirty years as a corporate executive. My personal experiences and training enable me to understand my clients’ needs and challenges better than most.
