Find balance.

Regaining your health and creating a lifestyle that brings you long and short term satisfaction are vital to recovering from substance dependence.  Achieving long term behavior change is supported by living a balanced life.  Recovery coaching can start you or a loved one down this path.

What is a Recovery Coach?

A coach offers guidance on the recovery experience, introduction to communities of recovery/mutual support groups, consultation on problems encountered in early recovery, on-going monitoring of recovery stability, assistance with lifestyle reconstruction, and, if needed, support through lapses and relapses.  Many recovering substance users benefit from a personal guide who facilitates disengagement from the culture of addiction and engagement in a culture of recovery.  A Recovery Coach offers a level of accountability and personal attention to clients by:​

  • Using a collaborative, client centered, strength-based approach

  • Helping increase motivation to reach goals 

  • Focusing on action & outcome

  • Identifying and removing barriers to recovery

  • Connecting individuals to community resources 

  • Bridging the gap between in-patient treatment and after-care support

  • Assisting with life skills including proper eating habits, exercise, budgeting, employment, volunteering, and establishing a self-care plan

I am in long term recovery from substance dependence.  I struggled for many years to find purpose and direction, drifting aimlessly through life.  I understand recovery just does not happen overnight.  It takes time, effort and commitment.  My supportive, caring, and authentic approach provides a level of care that will help people move forward in life, away from addictive substances.  I look forward to helping you on your journey to wellness.


I am employed as an Addiction Support Worker, working with youth, young adults, and adults.  I hold a certificate in Recovery Coaching and have training and knowledge in Mental Health First Aid, Harm Reduction, Indigenous Culture & Safety, S.M.A.R.T. Recovery, 12 Steps (AA/NA), Youth Work and Trauma Informed Care.  I have certificates in Naloxone administration, First Aid with CPR and Non Violent Crisis Intervention.  

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my two young children, hiking, yoga, mountain biking, skiing, golfing and appreciate being outside in nature.

Addiction doesn't define a person, being able to gain satisfaction through engagement with the world trumps addiction.  People can overcome addiction when they have positive options, meaningful goals and control of their lives.

Recovery is a process of restoring or developing a positive and meaningful sense of identity, apart from one's condition, and then rebuilding one's life, despite or within the limitations imposed by that condition.
