Once Andrea Carr attained sobriety, she decided to become a sober coach. Andrea realized her own journey to sobriety would have been much easier if she had worked with a Sober Coach from the beginning. Andrea has been in recovery for over six years. In November of 2018, Andrea celebrated three years of relapse-free sobriety, and almost two years free from disordered eating. Andrea realized she had to reinvent herself starting from the inside. Andrea wanted to be healthy, confident, fulfilled, happy, and free. These are traits so far from who she was when she was in active addiction. What clicked for Andrea on her journey is that her mindset needed to change. Andrea has made the commitment to choose life-long recovery and helps her clients do the same.
