Coaching, educating and supporting  families who have a loved one struggling with an addiction and/or a mental health condition.


Get the support you need for your family 

Do you have a loved one struggling with a substance use disorder and/or a mental health condition?  It's a challenging journey and often families focus on their loved one and don't get help for themselves.  

I am a Certified Family Recovery Life Coach, and from my training and my experience with a family member, there is a hopeful and healing way through this journey.  Through my coaching, I help families get calm, get support for themselves, practice self-care and set boundaries. From my  experience of setting boundaries, I learned that boundaries are about taking care of me, and they are not about trying to control someone else.  Setting boundaries is challenging and the process of setting them can be messy. As your coach, I am there there to help you gain awareness about your boundaries and to support you through the process of setting them,  and coach you through the challenges of maintaining them.

I also coach families on how to connect and communicate with their loved one in healthy way.  I help families learn how to have conversations with your loved one in a mindful way -- making sure you are calm before having them, cultivating a neutral tone of voice when speaking, and choosing the right time and place for both you and your loved one to have a conversation.  In our coaching sessions, we can practice conversations with role plays and even script them.  

You don't need to continue to live in the chaos that addiction and/or mental health conditions cause for families.  I will help you transform your challenging journey into one of transformation, hope and healing.

Beth coached my mom, grandma and me to help us deal with a difficult situation with my brother, his addiction, and beginning recovery, and how to best support him.   She really helped me learn what is and what is NOT my responsibility with regard to my brother.  The other thing the coaching has done for our family  is that it actually allowed us to discuss the situation and give words to it as opposed to being frustrated, hurt and confused by it all.  We started a true dialogue that has only been present with certain family members.  We are also able to encourage each other to do things we know will be most helpful to my brother and to ourselves on this journey.


Beth has coached me and my husband for over a year working towards the recovery of

our two daughters. Her compassion, knowledge, specialized training and personal

experience have guided us through much pain and crisis. Through the process of

working with Beth, we have found healing for ourselves along the way.


I can't thank you enough for the time you took to coach me through this last episode with my son.  I felt like I was living under a rock (denial maybe?) and your coaching helped me start seeing things for how bad they really were.  It helped me help my son get into treatment,  and slowly but surely get to a better place.


Beth has been working with my wife and I over the past 6 months concerning our teenage son’s recent use of marijuana. She has been very helpful in guiding us through the ups and downs of how to deal with his behavior. It’s extremely helpful to have a neutral party to guide us through these uncharted waters. We have learned quite a bit from Beth, which has helped us remain calm throughout these trying times. Beth’s knowledge and experience has been our guiding light and remains an important part of our approach to our relationship with our son. We highly recommend Beth to anyone needing some guidance through tough times.
