What is an Empowered Sobriety call?
This is a complimentary 30 minute call with me where I get to know more about you and where you are on your journey to empowered sobriety. If I think you’ll be a great fit for the program (which I’m sure you are) then I’ll tell you more about my program and answer any questions. There is no obligation to move forward or commit to working with me just because we have this call together. We’ll just have an honest conversation between two women who’ve been there and get it. Whether you decide to join this program or not, you’ll leave this time together empowered in your decision to be alcohol free.
My partner will kill me if they find out I’m investing in myself. How can I ask for their support?
It’s our responsibility to communicate what we need and why it is important to us. Often times we assume our partners understand what we’re going through and the truth is, they don’t. We must paint the picture for them. Your partner needs the opportunity to be let in on your real day to day pain/frustrations living alcohol free in order to truly support your decision to join the program. I’m talking heart to heart, knee to knee, really communicate the pain and frustration you are experiencing in your life. Share with them what you’re hoping to get from this experience and the vision you see for yourself after it’s complete. Share how you will you be able to show up for yourself, your partner and your family after doing the program. I always remind my clients that if the people in our lives truly understood what we’re going through, they would do everything in their power to support us. No one wants to see someone they love suffer.
I'm already doing another program. Can I still join The Sobriety Shift?
Of course! If you’re in AA, an outpatient or currently in therapy, you can absolutely join The Sobriety Shift. This is a mindset focused course and will only add more tools to your tool belt. The more support, the better!
I’m nervous to be on video chat.
The program is hosted on Zoom video chat to allow us to really connect. I understand being on camera might be a fear of yours and that’s okay. The first time I was on Zoom I immediately turned off the camera because I couldn’t look at myself. I quickly realized I was just allowing my fear to be stronger than my healing. I worked up the courage to say yes to face to face connection and healing and that’s when I started to get the results I was looking for. Getting sober and feeling good in our sobriety is about facing our fears. You can face this fear of being on Zoom and get the healing you deserve.
I already know I’m going to miss a class because of a prior obligation. Can I still join?
No problem! All calls are recorded and you can watch them at your convenience. I ask that my clients make every effort to make it to every call to receive the live coaching and really be dialed in on the experience. All calls are 90 minutes just once a week for 10 weeks.
I don’t think I’ll have the time to do the work because I have kids and a demanding job.
You spent the money and time on drinking, so I know you have time to heal. No one can do the work for you. This transformation doesn’t just magically happen, even though it is a magical experience! Let’s put it this way, if you have time to feel bad in your sobriety and allow negative thoughts to run your mind, you have time to learn the right tools to feel better. And let’s be real, there will always be something that comes up in our life that might feel like it’s getting in the way. Now is the time!
I don’t have the finances for it right now, even with a payment plan.
And if you did have the finances, where would they come from? Sometimes we have to think outside the box for something we really want. We spent so much time and money on alcohol and it was easy for us to spend that money. Now it’s time to heal and feel better but you’re holding yourself back?! Think outside the box so you can say YES!
It’s really not about the money. It’s about whether or not this is truly important to you. Is it a priority to feel good in your sobriety or is it a priority to continue to feel bad everyday and dread your life as an alcohol free woman?
This is also about trust in ourselves. I remember getting sober and not trusting myself. I mindlessly spent so much money on drugs and alcohol so how could I possibly be trusted spending money on my healing? I’m giving you permission to trust yourself in this process of healing and get the right tools to truly change your life.
I’m short on money this month and I don’t think I can afford it.
I love me a payment plan!!! I will work with you on a payment plan that works for both of us. My coaches in the past have done this for me and OMG it was a saving grace! I will do the same for you.
I don’t think I’m ready.
And if you were ready, what would that look and feel like for you? How will you know you’re ready? What you really need to ask yourself is how much longer are you willing to sit with your pain? How much longer are you willing to wake up in the morning hating yourself because you drank again even when you promised yourself to the moon and back that you would stay sober? How much longer are you willing to spend each day feeling, like shit in your sobriety? How much longer are you willing to allow yourself to hide out and avoid events because you might have to tell someone you’re alcohol free? If nothing changes, nothing changes. It’s time to say YES! If there is even a small percent of you that wants to say yes, that means you’re ready. Allow your YES to be bigger than your fear.
