Heather Sinclair is a highly experienced substance use disorder recovery coach and advocate. As a person in long-term recovery, she has over 10 years’ experience with various inpatient treatment options, pathways of recovery and 12 step programs. Heather works with extremely resistant clients suffering from substance use disorders. She has been a guiding force for struggling people integrating them back into areas of their lives where their behavior has left a destructive trail, including family, work, and personal relationships.
Heather’s passion to inspire others and find calmness by sharing her own story of recovery has resulted in public speaking engagements and outreach through her social media platform called Recovery Warrior. One of her specialties as a recovery coach is helping people cope who are facing consequences of the criminal justice system resulting from choices stemming from substance use disorders, such as DUI arrests and possible incarceration. In addition, Heather has deep experience helping clients navigate family breakups, divorce and/or custody challenges associated with addiction. She guides people through these challenging times and helps them develop strategies to stay sober. She believes one of her strongest assets is bringing light to others where there was once darkness and loss of hope.
Because Heather has walked the recovery road herself overcoming many life challenges, she has a talent of meeting her struggling clients where they are at and making a difference in their lives for the better. She acts as a trusted partner and can relate to her clients with no judgement because she has been through it herself. Heather’s recovery coaching goal is to instill joy, authenticity and care, which helps people trust the process and see the benefits of a sober lifestyle. The ultimate desired outcome is people finally feeling at “home” and comfortable inside their own minds and bodies because they achieve a sense of safety and joy in being sober.
“People will forget what you said, forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou.
