I help mental health and addiction recovery professionals increase well-being, connection and resilience online.
Entrepreneurs in Recovery® events and workshops use the same approach called upon by Facebook, Habitat for Humanity, BMW, Keller Williams, Nike, Vitamix, and NASA. The XCHANGE approach trains leaders, executives, coaches, and consultants in the art of facilitating rapid positive change using several methods including Appreciative Inquiry. I’m currently a member of the XCHANGE Faculty team. I’ve integrated all of my learnings into my workshops, trainings, and events including my HeartMath® certification.
I provide highly interactive online and in-person workshops to help individuals and organizations discover their inherent ability to increase resilience, harness strengths, amplify appreciation, and create purposeful visions.
Building Resilience in Recovery Workshop
We study moments of resilience and tap into the individual and collective strengths of the group. Next, the group creates an empowering sentence of resilience which is turned into a personal resilience affirmation. This is followed by an action plan that embodies resilience for success in life and recovery.
Elevate Your Recovery Workshop
We study moments of excellence and tap into the collective resourcefulness of the group. Next is a guided visualization of the future followed by the creation of an action plan to bring the images to life.
Focus On Your Recovery Workshop
We focus on times when a participant was a positive influence in the and tap into individual success factors. Next is a group activity to co-shape and design your ideal recovery relationship followed by the creation of your recovery team.
Appreciate Your Recovery Workshop
We focus on moments of appreciation followed by a journaling activity of activities and actions you appreciate and love doing. Next is a group activity were participants co-create a skit or magazine cover regarding activities they love to do. Each group participant is invited to create an action plan of things they love and enjoy doing.
Self-Care in Recovery Workshop
We study moments of health and wellness followed by self-care actions and goals relating to the mind, body, and spirit. Next, we divide into groups to ideate an ideal self-care routine for recovery. This activity is followed by each participant creating their own daily self-care routine.
“I had not even realized how disconnected I had been feeling from other people. I have had super low energy, but this sparked energy in my mind and body. It felt so supportive and I cannot believe I got the sense of connection that I did from a virtual meeting.”
“Connecting in breakout rooms – hearing others stories and seeing the strengths in each of us and tapping into those within myself. Thank you so much for reminding and connecting us!”
“I’m absolutely grateful. Had you of done this two months ago in my active addiction, I would never of experienced what I did today sober. It gave me hope, value and more gratitude.”
“It’s encouraging and hopeful looking back to a point in our lives that was good. It helps me realize some of the positive qualities we have that we might have forgotten through our use. Helps to build goals to create the future we want.”
