My Story

ripple effect of recovery addiction services minnesota minneapolis coaching

Why Work With Me?

I’ve been there. I get it.  I was a highly functioning alcoholic

for many years as I worked in Marketing & Business

Development.  On the outside, I had it all but on the inside

I was a mess.  I didn’t want to go to AA but I knew the

horrors of alcoholism.  In 1992 a drunk driver killed my sister

and ten years later, my brother drove drunk and killed a

woman.  He was sentenced to fourteen years in prison.

After my brother went to prison, my drinking escalated.

I went into treatment in 2008 and have remained sober.

I have a Masters in Addiction Counseling through

Hazelden Graduate School and have devoted

my life to helping others achieve

long-term sobriety.

My Beliefs?

I was not raised in a Christian home

and for many years considered myself agnostic.

Today, I am a Christ follower and believe God gives me the ability to maintain sobriety since I can not do it on my own.  I cherish my relationship with God and love the church even though I have not always been treated appropriately and often felt judged because of my addiction. I understand now that those negative things simply reflect the reality of sinful humanity.  It does not reflect the character of our Lord & Savior. Wherever you are at in your faith journey is fine with me.  I don't force my beliefs on you but rather walk along side you as you travel your faith journey.
