As many of you know, I released a coaching workbook in 2014 entitled From Now On: Seven Keys to Purposeful Recovery which was inspired by clients in recovery who were feeling stuck in their lives.

“Since I joined group, I don't feel so alone anymore—now I know there are others who want the best for me.” I hear this sentiment over and over again from clients who commit to weekly group therapy—a place to both learn about oneself while helping others learn about themselves. Clients typically come to group because they have longings for deeper contact, and group is where they get to take risks, be vulnerable, and as a result, experience deeper connection.
