About

We are NOT responsible for our disease and its consequences, but we are responsible for our recovery.  Recovery is a choice. 

I will not try to fool you: recovery, at first, is hard work. But it is much easier that our misery in the grip of our dependence.

You might have tried by yourself so many times to get sober/clean that you do not believe in yourself anymore.

When I reached my bottom, I asked for help. Do not wait. The disease of addiction is lethal and there is no easy death at the end of that bad trip.


Now, why CARA?

C stands for custom. I tailor your plan of recovery and your maintenance plan according to YOUR needs, WITH YOU.

You are unique. So is our journey. You might be in a phase where you are still asking yourself if you are an addict.

I will honestly tell you. You might know that you are one but are ashamed and powerless. You do not know who can help you, you do not know if you can live without your mood-altering substance, or your compulsive behavior. You might be ready.

You might be off your mood-altering substance, but you cannot live through the difficulties of your existence.

C also stands for Certified Coaching. I am a Certified Recovery Coach, with a Masters in addiction disorders, and thousands of hours of practice*(link to resume, see more…) with veterans, with the average Joe or with a Jane Doe like me, with businessmen, high-profile professionals, blue-collars, homeless people, and persons from all backgrounds, with almost all ethnicities and religions, including atheism, with all genders and family situations, with diverse political opinions. As an addiction counselor I have worked in in-patient facilities and treatment centers and out-patient programs, with an addiction psychiatrist, and now in my private practice as an addition coach, a role that is broader for me, more satisfying, and more flexible for you. 

A, of course, stands for addiction. Any addiction, whether you considerate it to be minor or major. There is no minor addiction. Like for cancer, there are phases. Stop now before it gets too late. stands for recovery. I offer you many tools and methods, and WE will design your own recovery plan TOGETHER. From now on, you are the master of your life if you consent to follow that program.

A finally, stands for anonymous. Confidentiality is one of the pillars of my professional ethics.

Be assured that what you say, did, or do, or chose, stays between you and me.
