Self Discovery After Alcohol Coaching and Mentoring

About RJ

Hey there! I'm your go-to guy for alcohol-free living! As a seasoned lived experience educator, I've learned a thing or two about the ins and outs of life without alcohol.


I've been sober for 9 years now, and let me tell you, quitting drinking took some serious stubbornness! But hey, sometimes being an asshole has its advantages!


I grew up in Wisconsin for 35 years, where beer is practically a food group, so I know a thing or two about the drinking culture. But after 10 years as a high voltage line tech foreman, a divorce, and a diagnosis of ADHD at 33, I decided to shift gears and make a change. Learning to feel my emotions at 35 was a trip, but it's been worth it.

As the host of a podcast about sobriety and mental health for over 3 years, I've connected with people from all walks of life who are looking to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life. And let me tell you, moving across the country to Virginia for my family was a real adventure! But creating a community that fosters connection and support for those on their journey to sobriety is what I'm all about.


Now, I won't pretend that I've got everything figured out. I still struggle with self-worth, even though people see me as successful. But rising from the ashes of my life 4 times has taught me that embracing fear is the key to growth and change. And hey, trying new things isn't just a strength, it's a joy!


So, if you're ready to make a change and start living your best alcohol-free life, I'm your guy! Let's work together to create a customized plan that works for you, because you don't have to do this alone.
