WELCOME TO RECOVER & REIGN!

Hello, everyone!

I am incredibly excited to have you here! Recover and Reign may be newly published, but it has been in the works for over three years. In 2021, I launched my first personal blog, Her Write to Reign. Shortly after, I began writing and sharing my journey from addiction to recovery. I never imagined receiving such an enormous outpouring of love and support. My husband, Roger, and I are accustomed to a completely different reaction. Our story has always been one to raise eyebrows, as Roger and I share the same sober date. {11.18.18} Two years after we married in 2009, we were introduced to the world of pain killers and opiates. Roger and I literally started using together, and it continued for eight long years.

In 2018 we checked into the same rehab facility, and 28 days later, we walked out together. I promised myself that I would help others in similar situations in the future. I started by sharing our story and was immediately welcomed into the IG sober community. Friendships formed, connections made, and I became aware of other couples/spouses/partners attempting to recover together. Many were discouraged due to the negative stigma surrounding “couples in recovery.” Another issue was the uncertainty of not knowing where or how to start. It wasn’t long before I began to feel a tug at my soul to step into the promise I’d made myself three years ago.

And here we are, better than ever.

Roger and I are living proof that you CAN recover together, and I want to help others do the same. I want to share my experience and our way of maintaining sobriety. As your recovery coach, my goal is to listen, share, and encourage. I want to help you learn how to approach a loved one you suspect has a problem. I want to assist you, with or without your partner, in creating a plan for a sober lifestyle. I want to share how to set healthy boundaries with others and talk to your children. Most of all, I want to help you realize that you are not alone and much stronger than you think.

One of the hardest things to do is admit you have a problem and ask for help, do it anyway. It could be the start of saving your life or the life of someone you love. Take a deep breath and reach out. I will be right by your side.

One day at a time.
