What is Recovery Coaching?
The most troubling times for a person attempting recovery from a traumatic event is often the first 90 days after the incident. Triggers like the COVID-19 Pandemic, job pressures or job loss, family tension, death, bills piling up—can all be overwhelming. This is when a Recovery Coach can be most helpful. Recovery coaching is a holistic approach that introduces individuals experiencing trauma, depression, anxiety, rejection, abandonment, or other stumbling thoughts to the journey of recovery.
How can a Recovery Coach help you?

What Our Clients Say
Dene’s knowledge and experience are unbelievable. Her passion for her work spills into every aspect of her life. She is an excellent Recovery Coach and Mentor. I highly recommend her.
Talking to Dene’ was uncomfortable for me at first. I do not come from a background where sharing personal struggles was ok. But WOW! Boy did my perception change. After speaking with Coach “D” (that’s what I call her), not only did I gain clarity, but I learned that I am not alone!
Dr. Dene’ truly challenges you to live your best life. Get ready, because the best is truly yet to come!!!
