My coaching philosophy integrates client-centered & action-oriented methods based on an evidence-based approach. I have certification as a Master Recovery Coach through Starting Point Minnesota. I work with individuals who are battling addiction as well as loved ones and family members that are also affected by it.
In collaboration, I work toward client's goals by tapping into their strengths, skills and values.
Through one-on-one personal coaching, my clients are empowered with a clear vision, an action plan, and proactive in achieve meaningful life goals.
I work with clients between for a minimum of a three month commitment. The longer the work the better the outcome.
My commitment, compassion, and empathy are the result of my own eight year struggle with alcohol. I believe that by sharing my story, others may be inspired and motivated to see the possibilities living a life of sobriety and well being.

some cognitive restructuring.
