Sobriety is not the only way - because science has finally made a way to make, as the Big Book says, " . . . a normal drinker out of an alcoholic."
If the sobriety through nothing but sheer willpower approach has not worked, you are absolutely not alone.
Research has has found that this approach does not work for most people and on the other hand that alternative approaches do.
At She's Recovered, we are here to share all the paths of alcohol recovery that are available to you, connect you with the path of recovery that best aligns with your goals with alcohol and all you need to accomplish them!

I'm on a mission to reframe our understanding of alcohol recovery. Sobriety is not the only way because science has finally made a way to make, as the Big Book says, " . . . a normal drinker out of an alcoholic."
Now I am a Speaker and the Creator of She's Recovered where I help women who have survived trauma and alcohol addiction truly heal so they can get to living the amazing life waiting for them on the other side, but once upon a time I was a survivor of childhood trauma and alcohol addiction myself, trying so hard to heal, but I couldn't no matter what I did and how hard I tried.
I know exactly what it's like to go from having lived experience seeking help from our trauma and addiction recovery system only to not get better despite trying for nearly a decade, to find alternative paths to recovery, to get better in just 3 short months, to stay recovered ever since and to go on to take a seat on the other side of the table and become an expert in the very field I once sought help from.
Initially I thought that there must have been something wrong with me that I could not recover for all those years no matter what I did and how hard I tried, but then I discovered there was nothing wrong with me and that there is something instead wrong with our society and recovery system's understanding of the root cause of alcohol addiction and therefore the options for recovery typically offered.
Those who need help are set up for failure, and so are everyone around them who also suffer, in addition to our society at large.
My belief is that if you have not been able to recover yet, it's not your fault. There is a path forward for you, you can recover and I will help you!
Crystal is warm, passionate and knows how to hold a lot of space that makes you feel supported and seen.
She's not a one-solution coach - she's dynamic and has a profound understanding of how to meet people exactly where they're at. Among the very few out there who know that changing your patterns isn't a matter willpower, she has an un-shaming approach to helping people that feels like a breath of fresh air. her high energy inspired me, and I'm so grateful to know her. I highly recommend working with Crystal!
I inspire audiences to truly heal so they can get to living the amazing life waiting for them on the other side!
My approach is rooted in having a heart of a teacher and of an advocate, teaching you all the options that are available to you and supporting you in whatever path of recovery you choose - regardless of what I or anyone else would choose for you.
I strive for you to gain the courage and tangible strategies you need to begin to truly heal so you can get to living the amazing life waiting for you on the other side, all while hopefully having my cup of coffee not too far from me at all times.
From government, to nonprofit, to corporate events, my mission is to help my audiences begin their path of truly healing. Whether talking about trauma, alcohol or financial recovery, I connect with my audience where they have been, where they are now and where they are going - and empower them with a roadmap for how to truly heal.
Before I worked with Crystal, I was struggling with being the family member of someone who suffers from a severe alcohol addiction that has greatly impacted our family.
Crystal is very knowledgeable about this subject and shared a lot of valuable information
The statistics she shared were the most alarming but also the most valuable to me. Since working with Crystal, I have achieved some insight, knowledge, and education on the severity of living with alcohol addiction and its impacts; I have been able to have meaningful and positive conversations with my family member who is suffering from the alcohol-related issue; and I have been able to educate the rest of my family on the transformation that Crystal had along with being able to instill changes for my family. My family member is equally interested in taking the steps to transform their life for the better and is interested in seeking Crystal's program. Take the steps and do it! Believe in yourself and do not look back.
