What is Recovery Coaching?
Recovery coaching provides professional support to reduce the possibility of relapse. The chances of maintaining sobriety are improved if you have a proper plan, goals, and resources. Having dependable encouragement will inspire you to achieve long-term recovery and to feel happy doing it. To be successful, you must have support beyond the initial detox and treatment centers. Having a recovery coach ensures that you have reliable support, a plan for success, and guidance for meeting your goals.
Why Should I Choose You?
As a person who remembers the early stages of recovery, I know how essential it is to have consistent positive support. My experience as a professional therapist and person in long-term recovery has given me a unique perspective on the process of getting and maintaining sobriety. I am committed to helping those with substance abuse issues and promise to do everything possible to help you succeed.
Who Would Benefit From Recovery Coaching?
My coaching services would be great for someone who is leaving inpatient treatment, someone with multiple relapses, or someone who is struggling with substance use and is ready to do something about it. Recovery coaching is for those in early substance use recovery or those looking to stop or reduce use.

How Are Coaching and Counseling Different?
Although similar in many ways, counseling and coaching are different services. Counseling should be used when there is a mental health issue such as depression or anxiety that needs to be addressed. Coaching does not address psychological issues. It helps you to meet specific life goals and assumes that you are emotionally well or getting mental health therapy with another provider. Also, a counselor must be licensed by the state licensing board to legally practice. There is no license required to be a coach, so anyone could call themselves a coach regardless of their training. Another important difference is that most counselors accept insurance to pay for services. Coaches are not able to take insurance, which means you will always be paying out of pocket for services.
