Welcome to my website,

 

I'm Dr. Andrea Arlington, and I am here to guide you on your journey of transforming your life and strengthening your family relationships... and when needed, healing family systems and recovery from addiction. With years of experience both personally and professionally, along with a compassionate approach, I am dedicated to empowering individuals and families to create positive change and foster a healthier family dynamic.

 

Services Offered:

  • Hourly Coaching for women seeking to rediscover their inner and our beauty and self worth

    • As a former international fashion model with a decade long career spanning multiple continents, I learned a lot about taking care of my body, and how to show up in the outer world.  As a woman who lost everything later in my life, I had had the choice to reinvent myself from the inside or continue to spiral down hill. I learned how to really know who I am, to love myself and thrive and so can you and I can help.​

  • Hourly life Coaching for individuals and families seeking recovery and healing from life's challenges!

  • Case Management  and family Recovery Coaching:

For the past 9 years I've been coaching families to become their loved ones best chance for choosing recovery. I have also worked directly with their loved ones in helping them choose and navigate early recovery and long term recovery. Over the last 7 years I have been serving as a private case manager for families, providing the  family/client a single point of contact for multiple health and services systems. I advocate for the client , am flexible, community-based, and client oriented .

 

I assist my clients with needs generally thought to be outside the realm of substance abuse treatment to help them stay focussed and engaged in treatment and moving toward recovery.  I find that when a client’s other problems are addressed along with substance abuse, it helps the client feel a greater sense of ease. My focus is on the whole individual and take a comprehensive assessment, plan and coordinate services to address multiple aspects of my client’s life.  Effective substance abuse treatment often requires a client to move to different levels of care or systems. I help my clients navigate the options they have and work with their treatment team for the best next step toward long-term recovery and well-being. 

Family System Healing: I specialize in healing family systems impacted by addiction and dysfunctional patterns. Together, we will address communication breakdowns, ways to repair and create deeper connection and emotional intimacy through communication strategies, conflict resolution scripts and mind sets, and in rebuilding trust. My goal is to help your family find a renewed sense of connection and understanding.

Individual Guidance: I offer personalized guidance for individuals seeking recovery, personal and spiritual growth. I will provide you with tools to thrive and coping strategies to help you navigate life transitions, and unlock your full potential.

 

Couples Counseling: Relationships can be deeply affected by addiction, mental health and trauma. In couples coaching I work with partners to rebuild trust, improve communication, and strengthen their bond.

Approach:

My approach is rooted in evidence-based principles designed to promote lasting change and healing. Through my expertise and experience coaching hundreds of individuals and families, and my own journey of healing generational trauma, co-dependency and overcoming addiction in my family, I will empower you to transform your life and your family.

 

You will learn how to heal and reframe beliefs that don't serve you, and to embrace new more empowering ways of looking at life. You will learn effective communication strategies to foster understanding, compassion, and open dialogue within your family.

 

This means that you will learn how to talk to each other in a way that promotes understanding and kindness within your family. By improving how you communicate, you can rebuild trust and create a solid foundation for healing, leading to a happier relationships and home life. 

 

Positive reinforcement at every opportunity helps to heal the polarized state that often occurs in unhealthy family systems and when addiction is present. Acknowledging and celebrating achievements and progress is critical for helping to create connection. Connection is the greatest tool you have to help your loved ones struggling with mental health and addiction. 

Through positive reinforcement, I will reinforce your motivation and help build your confidence for navigating your own life as you journey towards recovery and personal growth for your self and your loved one's.

 

Taking care of yourself is crucial in the healing process. I will help you prioritize self-care and well-being teaching you ways to take care of your physical and emotional well-being. We'll find strategies to reduce stress, increase resilience, and create a healthier balance in your life. Self care alleviates the stress response of flight, flight, freeze and people pleasing, which leads to living in reaction to life rather than being inspired from within. 

 

Having people who understand and support you is crucial. I'll help you connect with others who have similar experiences. They can provide guidance, encouragement, and wisdom as you go through this journey.

 

Establishing healthy boundaries is essential for your well-being and the healing of your family. I will help you set clear boundaries that protect your own growth while supporting your loved ones' recovery. By fostering personal growth and creating a supportive environment for change, we can create a healthier family dynamic.
