Trauma/Addiction Recovery Coach
Choosing to become a Trauma and Addictions recovery coach results from a significant amount of personal and professional experience. I have walked the journey of childhood trauma, substance abuse, and ptsd symptoms and through a wide range of modalities combined with my faith have found sobriety and healing. Additionally, I have had the honor of working in mental health for decades in residential and outpatient settings serving adolescents and adults. I've been leading recovery groups, mentoring, sponsoring, and coaching others towards discovering their authentic self, purpose, and freedom.
