Hi, I’m Taylor.
I’ve been an online sobriety coach since 2015, successfully helping dozens of people around the world tackle their problems with alcohol. 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. You don’t need to be an alcoholic to have a problematic relationship with alcohol or to want to quit drinking. The way I see it is this: a problem is a problem and needs to be treated as such. No matter where you are in your sobriety journey, I’m here to help you reach your full potential.
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:
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.
Taking care of yourself and making yourself feel good is great — as well as necessary in sobriety. We’ll create a self-care routine to fit your lifestyle and boost your wellness by replacing a damaging vice (drinking) with activities more aligned with who you are, while increasing your feeling of being rewarded at the same time.
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.
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!
