Hi, I’m Taylor.

I’ve been sober since September 4th, 2013 and although it wasn’t easy, I wouldn’t change a thing. My sobriety has been an invaluable part of my life and has opened up so many possibilities for me. I’d like to help you experience the benefits breaking away from alcohol has to offer.

I’ve been an online sobriety coach through the habit tracking service Coach.me since 2015 and have successfully helped dozens of people around the world tackle their problems with alcohol.

The way I see it is this: a problem is a problem and needs to be treated as such. You don’t need to be an alcoholic to have a problematic relationship with alcohol or to want to quit drinking.

No matter where you’re at in your sobriety journey, I’m here to help you reach your full potential. Get sober mindfully!

How?

Every person I work with is unique and my exact coaching process is different for everyone. I don’t do “fluff” — you’re going to get the honest truth from me and I’m not going to let you get away with making empty justifications for your drinking. I do this with a high level of compassion and understanding; you could call it tough love. I’ll blow the whistle on any empty excuses and work with you to make tangible shifts to empower yourself instead of letting you buy into the same old rhetoric that enables your drinking.

These are the four pillars I structure my coaching approach around:

Mindfulness
Don’t worry if you don’t meditate for half an hour a day — or if you’ve never meditated before in your life. There’s a lot more to mindfulness than meditation. We’ll use various mindfulness exercises to face the root causes of your drinking while helping you ward off cravings at the same time.

Self-Care
Taking care of yourself and making yourself feel good is great — as well as necessary in sobriety. We’ll find a self-care routine that fits your lifestyle and will help increase the feeling of being rewarded, the absence of which is neurologically interpreted by your brain once you stop drinking alcohol.

Productivity
It can be hard to talk yourself out of cravings when you’re sitting around doing nothing and trying not to drink. Staying productive is important when it comes to breaking yourself out of the habit of drinking and getting yourself into a healthier new routine, but without getting overwhelmed.

Accountability
Honesty is the backbone of a successful coaching relationship. I create a judgement-free zone so you don’t need to be afraid to tell me when you drink. We’ll learn from both your slip-ups and successes in order to figure out what works for you. I’ll also share my personal experiences with you — feel free to ask me anything!

Services I offer:
These services utilize the Coach.me platform. If you feel unsure if any of these are best for you or you’re looking for a unique arrangement, send me an email and we’ll talk!

Accountability Coaching

This service can be viewed as a month-long onboarding to sobriety. There’s no “one size fits all” approach to getting sober — we’ll work together to come up with a game plan that works for you based on your unique situation. At the end of the month, we’ll assess where you’re at and what, if any, additional support would be right for you.

After our first month together, you’ll…
-Get crystal clear on the goals you want to unlock though sobriety and create new opportunities for yourself
-Understand your triggers to put you back in control
-Establish an effective self-care routine that enhances mindfulness, productivity, and create habits that support a lifestyle of sobriety
-Understated the stages of change to empower you to move through each step with confidence
-Understand how habits are formed and how you can maximize your habits for your unique goals
-Start to develop a clear roadmap and step by step plan so you can gain momentum and have an effective plan that gives you real results – no yo-yo’ing on and off track

New clients receive a free 45-minute phone or video consultation to make sure we’re on the same page so I can provide you with actionable steps to work on and bring more depth to the coaching experience.

This is a standard and intro level of sobriety coaching. For more ramped up help in achieving sobriety, please see the “Fine Tuning Your Process” and “Breaking Through Barriers” coaching packages. At the end of the month, we’ll see if a transition into one of these packages aligns with your trajectory and goals. Custom packages are also available.

Included features:
-Daily messages via Coach.me’s app/website
-Complimentary 45 minute phone or video call for new clients
-Additional phone calls available to purchase in 45 minute increments
