Coach type: Persons with addiction
Coaching since: 2023
I started drinking and smoking marijuana when I was 16. By the time I got to college, my addiction was getting out of control. Pretty much every drug was in the picture by then. I dropped out of school, was in trouble with the law and got to a point where I didn’t want to live anymore. I relapsed after about a year of sobriety and was drunk for probably two weeks straight. I realized it was a matter of life or death for me and I needed to truly get well. Since then, my life has just blossomed.
I’ve enjoyed jobs in the mental health space most. I’ve worked as a mental health technician and peer coach, both of which were very fulfilling. Being able to connect with someone and seeing their true growth is incredible.
Mental illness, suicidality, emotional wellbeing, community
I love snowboarding, playing hockey and long boarding. I also hike with my dog and listen to a lot of music.
