I'm coming at this work from my most vulnerable *gulp* and authentic place. My own life + the sacred work I'm here to do in the world from the wondrous desert in Joshua Tree, CA.
I'm not a certified addiction expert. I'm a transformational coach & guide with 12+ years of my own intense spiritual journeying and 7 beautiful years with my own coaching practice where I've served hundreds of amazing humxns, including many addicts, folx in recovery, and those who are related to or in romantic partnerships with addicts.
I have 15+ years experience of being in relationship with addicts, including my husband.
The assumed/inherited anonymity of some recovery frameworks for partners/relatives/friends of those struggling with addiction isn't for everyone (FYI, I think Al-Anon is a beautiful support).
I'm here for the release of shame and hiding. For the connection and support many of us need.
I see addiction as just one way folx cope w/ the utter insanity of our world. We ALL have our coping mechanisms and they ALL have an expiration date.
I want us to step into the light...shadows and all.
