WORK WITH ME

Experienced. Certified. Supportive.

I work with women who get up each day and handle their business.  They take care of their families, perform well at their jobs, practice “self-care”, and have good relationships.  The only problem is they can’t stop asking themselves the question, “Do I need to stop drinking?”

 

Together we can find the answers to that one big, scary question.  We can explore the possibility of what life could look like without alcohol.  Through our work together you’ll learn how to address your physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, and environmental needs.  You’ll discover what it takes to regulate your nervous system so that you won't need to reach for that glass (bottle) of wine at the end of the day.

 

  • Do you challenge yourself to take breaks from drinking but have a hard time staying stopped? 

  • Do you hide the extent of the physical and emotional effects of your drinking from your loved ones? 

  • Do you hear an inner voice telling you there’s a problem but ignore it because “only alcoholics have to stop drinking”?  

  • Are you conflicted because you suffer internally but haven’t hit a “rock bottom” bad enough to make you quit?

 

You’re not alone.  I’ve been where you are.  There’s a better way to live.  What would happen if you could:

 

  • Have more peace of mind.

  • Wake up not regretting drinking the night before (and promising yourself you won’t do it again).

  • Be more present with the people in your life instead of looking forward to, or recovering from, drinking.

  • Have the free time, energy, and head space to do the things that you want to do - that light you up and make you happy!

 

I’m a certified Gray Area Drinking Master Coach, a CCAR designated Recovery Coach Professional and member of the IARCP (International Association of Recovery Coach Professionals).  I’m an ally, confidant, motivator, cheerleader, truth teller, problem solver, role model, mentor, resource broker, advocate, friend, companion, and lifestyle consultant.⁠  I’ll help you find practices that will comfort your nervous system and change your behavior.

 

Book a free, 15 minute call today to see if we’re a good fit.  I look forward to hearing from you!

"The typical question is, Is this bad enough for me to have to change? The question we should be asking is, Is this good enough for me to stay the same? And the real question underneath it all is, Am I free?"

ABOUT ME

A guide with lived experience

Hello!  I'm Maureen, a certified Gray Area Drinking Master Coach and CCAR Recovery Coach Professional.

I'm a wife and a mother of four who enjoys reading, gardening, racquet sports, cold plunging, knitting, skiing, long walks and even longer conversations.

 

I started my sober journey in 2018 and stopped drinking alcohol in 2020.  The early path to sobriety wasn't easy but the journey continues to open new worlds of self-discovery, mindfulness, and community.  What I thought of as the end turned out to be just the beginning.  

 

When you decide to stop drinking, I'll walk the path with you and provide somatic, cognitive, and emotional resources along the way.  We'll add in practices that'll comfort your nervous system and change your behavior.  Through weekly zoom calls and daily email check-ins we'll discover your path to an alcohol-free life you're delighted with.

Working with Maureen leveled up my way of being in my body and in my mind. Framing and reframing my drinking habits with Maureen gave me concrete ways to change and grow. She gave resources tailored to my needs and my personality, with my goals at the front of her mind. Her coaching has helped me seriously evaluate my drinking and move from sober curious to sober serious. She is wonderful, warm, and count on growing with Maureen!

White Sand and Stone

I would not hesitate to recommend coaching with Maureen. I learned valuable practices to add to my toolbox/routines over the course of our coaching and was guided to put thought into how I structured my day to best support my sobriety. Maureen is an empathetic, supportive, and empowering coach, her insights and support were invaluable to me over the course of my coaching.
