Hey There

Hi! My name is Carrie and I am super glad you are here. Warmest welcome!

The fact that you are reading this means you are probably thinking about a

change with your drinking. This could be your sliding door moment that changes the trajectory of your life.  I know all about that moment because it happened to me. Let me tell you a bit more of my story. xo

My story

In April 2016, I found myself at a major crossroads in my life. Either stop drinking or lose my marriage. As a full-time working Nurse Practitioner and mother of 2 young children, I had become completely addicted to alcohol. What started as social drinking and a couple glasses of wine to relax at the end of the day turned into a full blown addiction. I tried to moderate, I tried denial And I tried it alone. Nothing worked and I HAD to ask for help. 

You can ask for help too. 

When I entered sobriety I was filled with so. much. shame. It took me years to work through my shame and deal with the stigma surrounding addiction. During early recovery I made a promise to myself that once I could, I would help others to embrace and confidently OWN their sobriety sooner than I did. 

No more shame or stigma.

As my sobriety continued to grow so did my confidence. I started sponsoring and mentoring and eventually coaching! Brave was launched in May 2021 and Brave's first Signature Sobriety Hiking Retreat took place that fall in Asheville, North Carolina. I am passionate about helping people get and stay sober and would be honored to be a part of your journey. 

Embrace and confidently OWN your sobriety.
