I am passionate about helping people create and enjoy a sustainable recovery from problematic substances and behaviours. I created Red Roof Recovery to be an inclusive and customizable program of recovery that you can align to meet your needs and values. We are all different, and we will require different solutions to our different problems. This is not a boxed program. It’s a program that I will customize to YOU and YOUR RECOVERY.
I’m available for both individual coaching and also for larger groups of people wanting to learn cognitive and other behaviour therapies, mindfulness practices, and countless other techniques to help build a house of “balanced and fulfilling” recovery that you won’t want or need to escape from.
Learn to accept yourself unconditionally
Learning to love yourself is probably one of the most challenging things you’ll ever do in your lifetime. Once I had my physical sobriety, I had to learn how to be emotionally sober so I could sustain my abstinence from harmful behaviours and substances. I knew I wouldn’t be able to do that as long as I held the deep, festering loathing that I had for myself. A book from Louise Hay (You Can Heal Your Life) encouraged me to adopt a daily practice that would melt away my self-loathing and help me learn to love myself unconditionally. It doesn’t resonate with everyone, but I have several tools & techniques we can explore to see what works for you.
Learn to accept others unconditionally
Have you ever felt like a doormat? Are you challenged when it comes to setting healthy boundaries with others? I have a step-by-step process where you’ll learn how to form relationships (old and new) that make you feel valued and appreciated. You’ll also learn how to limit your exposure to friends & family who don’t share your values and goals, and you’ll even learn how to have mutually respectful relationships with people you may not even like!
Learn to accept life unconditionally
The agenda of mainstream media is to perpetuate the FUD Factor (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt). I know this to be true, because it was my daily mandate as a broadcaster for 22 years.
I will share one defining event in my career that set me on a path of recovery, and – I promise – it will help you create the life of your dreams that you won’t want or need to escape from.
