Shelby John Coaching

As a woman in long term recovery I am deeply passionate about the recovery community. I am a clinical social worker with decades of experience treating people to help them heal their past trauma and build emotional maturity. Through this work I have seen first hand the pain the people suffer from. The stigma, judgment and rejection some endure throughout life in different situations due to their addiction and recovery. My mission is that every woman knows that there is a safe place for her to share her experiences and receive the care and healing she needs and deserves. Everything we can do to reduce the stigma around addiction, are things that save lives.
