I am in long-term recovery from addiction and a myriad of life challenges. My recovery is rooted in 12-step traditions combined with wisdom acquired from working with a gifted life coach, a skilled therapist, and peers who are also in recovery. I am eternally grateful to all of the people who have been part of my recovery journey. It is with the perspective of these personal recovery experiences that I offer support to others who yearn to create their own extraordinary lives.
My career experiences also blend together to support my work as a Recovery & Coach: a PhD from the University of Pittsburgh; advanced training in certification programs from Crossroads Recovery Coaching; over 20 years as a business owner; program development and management at a renown addiction treatment center; two “start-ups” including “for profit” and “non-profit” businesses (both related to support for addiction recovery). All of these contribute to my belief that we can accomplish more in recovery than we ever thought possible.
Please see my website, www.lorieobernauer.com, for more information about my coaching process and consultation opportunities, I am also available for public speaking engagements on a variety of topics related to addiction recovery and resilience.
I have a deep, intimate understanding that recovery requires honesty and openness, a dedication to learning and growing everyday, plus a willingness to act boldly and have faith. I am eager to support your recovery journey as you courageously create the life that you want.
