About Who We Are

Adirondack Recovery Care, LLC is dedicated to inspiring, motivating and championing individuals who desire to overcome addiction by helping them take back their power,  regain their control and rediscover a vibrant, resilient, purpose filled life. We believe each person we work with is talented, resourceful and whole; a magnificent being, full of energy, creativity and intuition, capable of awakening into the life of their dreams - something they recognize, when they discover their addiction is not who they are. We commit to being a partner with those whom we work with; to walk alongside them in where ever their journey takes them without judgement, making them feel inadequate, telling them what they must do, or trying to impact the outcome.

Our Guiding Principals


A world where all people who desire to overcome addiction soar beyond recovery into the freedom of living and loving a truly addiction-free life.


Helping people in recovery learn to live and love truly addiction-free through the power of self-awareness, self-compassion and self-leadership.

If there is one word that stands out in our mission to help you learn to live and love a truly addiction-free life that word is “Truly”. Define your “Truly” and you’ve set the foundation for creating a  new life, based on what “addiction-free”  really means to you.

Essential Beliefs

All individuals are unique, with their own desires, values, and beliefs and should have the opportunity to self-direct their journey to an "addiction-free" life in the way that is most meaningful to them. There are many pathways to achieving this goal that we must honor and respect as viable options for anyone willing to take the life-changing action necessary to overcome addiction. We believe that together we can make a difference.  To this we commit our time, energy, resources and compassionate care.

Journey of a Lifetime

The Journey of a Lifetime

Here at Adirondack Recovery Care we believe there are many pathways to living an "addiction-free" life.  Finding the right path can inspire the hope that a life beyond recovery is possible for you. And that is what UnCover-E™ is all about.

When you are on the right path, one that you find personally meaningful, you are more likely to build and sustain your motivation and your follow through on the commitments you have made to yourself and others. You will find yourself making choices that have life-changing impact, bringing balance; a state of peace, joy, harmony, and health into your life.


Are you ready to embark on the journey of a lifetime?  If so, we can help you navigate from wherever in life you might be to find the path that aligns with your values and beliefs.

What Exactly is Coaching?

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) definition: "Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. It is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses, or organizations.” 

Why is Credentialing Important?


"ICF Credential-holders are part of a self-regulating group of elite coaches who provide accountability to clients and the coaching profession as a whole. They pursue and complete rigorous education and practice requirements that provide unquestioned legitimacy to their commitment to excellence in coaching."

And to us here at Adirondack Recovery Care, our ICF credentialed coaching along with our Addiction Recovery coaching is a practice that we want to share with you, to help you see recovery differently, so you may experience the pure joy of finding freedom from addiction, to be recovered in all areas your life; healthy and whole in mind, body and spirit.  

How We Make a Difference?

We are your thinking partner rather than an advisor or prescriber. We help you build the self-awareness, self-compassion and self-leadership that expands your perception of the world around you, the opportunities available to you, your capabilities, the choices you make and the actions you take. We respect and honor you as the expert of your life; as creative, resourceful and whole with the power to decide what your life is to be. We are future focused getting you from where you are now to where you want to be.

Our coaching process, UnCover-E™,  creates disruption in deeply rooted thought patterns that can lead to transformational change in your life. UnCover-E™ helps you move forward with confidence, clarity, and commitment and creates a sense of self-worth that results from being accountable for what you say you will do rather than focusing on the past, and the self-sabotaging thoughts, feelings and behaviors that serve to derail you from your goals. UnCover-E™ helps you build resilience to relapse, trust in yourself and the trust of others in you.  Ultimately, you learn to live and love a truly addiction-free, joy-filled life by uncovering and rediscovering the connections to yourself and your world.
