About Lorie

Hi, I’m Lorie.

Don’t worry: I’m not going to preach about the rewards of recovery.

You’ve got enough on your mind.

Getting clean and sober is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. That said, I’ve accomplished more in the past 11 years than I ever thought possible, and if I’m being honest, I’m still learning.

I understand what it’s like to try to change your behavior when it seems that there are problems everywhere. I get the crushing pressure of trying to take care of everyone and always having the “right” answers. I know the shame of disappointing loved ones and the people that I work with.

And I still tangle with the fear of screwing up again and repeating my past mistakes…or worse.

But I can also report that it’s possible to be comfortable in your own skin again and move through life without feeling like every day is a fight.

Guiding principles that I apply to my personal and professional success include:


Just talking about your mistakes doesn’t serve your long-term recovery. Finding answers and taking action does.

Honesty & Openness

I’m known for being direct and creating a space where clients can be vulnerable and exercise self-compassion.


You’re more than your addiction. You have the right to a great life and to feel fulfilled and satisfied!

I’ve been in the recovery support space for over 10 years.

If I’ve learned anything from building programs and serving communities that foster long-term recovery it’s this: There’s no one-size-fits all approach. Best practices and treatment frameworks exist for a reason, but at the end of the day you need customized support and strategies to create the confidence and connectedness you’re craving. That’s why I’ve formed my coaching approach the way I have—any other methodology would overlook your personal potential and creativity.

My training & education includes:

“Lorie was always honest with me about her own life. It’s the thing I love about seeing her. Not everyone opens up and shows their own flaws. She’s convinced me that it’s okay that I don’t have answers to all of life’s problems.” – VP of Sales

“I don’t think I would have trusted someone who hasn’t been in the trenches. Lorie’s background as also having some challenges really qualified her approach and confirmed my trust.” – Real Estate Agent
