She quotes, "It is my mission as a Recovery Coach to support sustainable and positive changes by helping anyone to avoid relapse and build community support for recovery by working on life goals important to the client.
Shira Goldberg graduated from Kaplan University in 2011 with a degree in psychology, with an emphasis in Applied Behavioral Analysis. Prior to that, she attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where she was in the pre-medicine program. She was awarded the Ronald McNair Scholarship, a Post Baccalaureate Achievement Program, and a fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin where she did cancer research. She graduated Summa Cum Laude and is in Psi Chi, Psychology’s International Honor Society.
After surviving her own battle with alcohol, she had an awakening and began focusing her efforts and dedication on the recovery community and became a recovery coach. Her motivation is to encourage and celebrate recovery by promoting its message of hope. She is now the founder of LivingSoberLifeCoaching.com, an online effort that reduces the marginalization and stigma that surrounds addiction and to help those that have a need find not only resources, but community.
“By supporting and encouraging clients to achieve their life goals, within the context of long-term recovery, I get to see not only collectively, but individually, the benefits of recovery and their new lease on life.
I cannot imagine doing anything more important than that.”
