By developing actions, habits and practices that are supportive of their recoveries, we can live fulfilling lives, grounded in meaning and purpose.

My coaching philosophy is rooted in compassion, empowerment, and evidence-based strategies. I believe that happiness, joy and the deep sense of fulfillment we’re all looking for is an art, a skill to be mastered, which no one was taught yet needs to be discovered on this journey called life. Through a combination of personalized facilitation, mindfulness techniques, and practical tools, I aim to equip my clients with the skills needed to overcome challenges, manage triggers, and cultivate a fulfilling life beyond addiction.

My personal experience in active addiction and long-term recovery enables me to relate to a client at a meaningful level. I meet individuals ‘where they are at’ in their respective recovery journeys, and I use open-ended questions and active listening to identify obstacles hindering their progress, and to create a solid plan of action for the future.

Ati holds the best space, and with the best presence, of anyone I’ve encountered personally and professionally in over thirty years working in and moving through mental health. He is a beacon of wholehearted devastation toward the things that no longer serve us and the epitome of grace as we gather ourselves toward the better people we know we can be. I’m so grateful that I connected with him at a time when I needed it most, and am so glad to be able to refer colleagues, friends and clients to him with a diversity of needs and experiences knowing that he’s foundationally strong enough to help all of us help ourselves.

‘If you’ve reached a point in your life where you are curious about where you are, how you got to be here and you’re perhaps wondering why you respond as you do in certain life situations, I would absolutely recommend the Enneagram! With extraordinary perception, empathy and insight, Jean led me on a journey of self-discovery, where I explored aspects of myself that had never quite made sense to me. Having always followed the road less travelled, I have to say this is one of the most valuable and profound tools I have ever experienced.
