My Coaching Story

Helping You Move Forward

Since 2003, I’ve been working as a Social Worker  Professional who specializes in helping people cope with their issues. In 2019 I became a Certified Life coach.  I coach my clients in a way that utilizes both their minds and their hearts. I first learned about coaching when I hit a roadblock in my own life and was struggling to move past it. The techniques I developed were so successful that friends and family members began asking me for help with their own challenges. This motivated me to turn my newfound passion into a full-time career. In May 2021 I lost my father to a drug overdose. This motivated me to push forward. I became an Advocate for the Effects of Parental Substance Abuse, A Narcan Trainer, A Certified Peer Advocate, and I am also now a Substance Abuse Recovery Coach. If you have any questions about my methods, or would like to schedule a consultation, please get in touch with JS Self-Care today.
