and I'm here to help you create more ease, joy, and fulfillment in
your business, relationships and creative passions.
And it all starts with my 3 Keys to Unlocking Your Potential.
I see you Brave Sister . . .
You’ve been on the journey of sobriety for a while and feel like
you’ve hit a plateau. Maybe you’ve tried 12 step fellowships only
to feel like you couldn't identify with the people, philosophy, or
experiences and think there must be something else out there. Or maybe you've winging sobriety on your own. You either can put together a little time but find you end up drinking again or you've been sober for a while and are looking to take your life to the next level.
Language is POWERFUL. Calling yourself an alcoholic or
addict doesn’t feel in alignment anymore because either it's been years since you drank or did drugs or labels just don't suite you.
Whether you are a woman in long term sobriety who has outgrown
the 12 steps, or a woman who wants to stop drinking before it gets completely out of control, you are in the right place!
Hi Brave friend! I'm Keegan
April 7th, 2006 was the first day of my sobriety. I woke up in a treatment center exhausted, miserable, and terrified. Crystal meth and alcohol were my drugs of choice and I'll be completely transparent with you. On that day, I didn't wan't to stop using drugs and I especially didn't want to stop drinking. But I damn sure wanted to stop feeling the way I was feeling . . . . hopeless, broken, filled with self hate and despair, angry, and scared.
I could see where crystal meth was a problem because it took me places mentally, physically and emotionally that alcohol didn't. They told me in that treatment facility that in order to stay off of meth I needed to stay off of everything including alcohol. That's where I really struggled. How will I never have another drink again? What about when I get married, won't I want champagne at my wedding? (never mind that I was single at the time)
When someone suggested that "just for today" I don't get high or drink, it was the first time I felt a glimmer of hope . . . like maybe, just maybe I might be able to do the sobriety thing.
I had to get real honest with myself. Like I mentioned before, crystal meth was SO OBVIOUS but I had to also get honest with myself about my drinking before I started using drugs.
I could go for days and not drink. I didn't crave it and I didn't need it in the mornings to get going. In my head I wasn't what society depicts as an "alcoholic".
But as soon as I started drinking, it was like something came over and I couldn't stop.
No matter how many times I told myself, "this time it will be different" "if I just
stick to beer instead of liquor I'll be fine" or "it's not that big of deal, everyone else
around me is getting trashed too".
When I got completely honest with myself, I realized that I needed to change and I needed help to make those changes. I was so resistant to 12 step fellowships in the beginning but I was desperate not to feel like I had the last few years before getting sober so eventually I threw myself into a 12 step fellowship.
I'm so grateful for my time there because I learned so much about myself and living life without drugs and alcohol. And I got to a place where I felt like was bumping up against the walls of that fellowship. I had out grown the environment and some of the beliefs that are the foundation of the program no longer felt in alignment for me anymore.
Making the decision to leave that fellowship was extremely hard because I had taught "if you leave, you will get high". Finding the courage within myself to question that statement and trust myself that I could in fact stay sober when I left was one of the most challenging and empowering actions I have ever taken.
I've been coaching women through the 12 steps, yoga teacher trainings, and
clients since 2007 and I have a unique view on life through the eyes of a person
in long-term sobriety who know the ins and outs of how we as humans
escape from reality using many kinds of strategies.
From the obvious: drinking, food, binge watching, social media to the not so obvious;
our thinking and how we can get stuck in habitual thought pattern loops
that keep people from moving forward.
My mission is to support you in whatever phase of your sobriety that you are in.
I believe as humans having someone to mentor, coach, and guide us is one of the keys to living a happy, successful and joyful life. I'd be honored to support you in your journey.
