Lori is a life long spiritual seeker, health/wellness researcher, entrepreneur, and adventure enthusiast who found herself in the throws of alcoholism and bulimia in her early twenties. While 4.5 years in AA solved the former, she spent the next 25 years trying to recover from the latter. A feat she finally accomplished on May 9th, 2013.

Her overarching philosophy is that our biggest MESS can become our biggest MESSage so she believes that those struggling with addiction are beautifully sensitive souls and incredibly courageous survivors who will eventually become victorious and help facilitate change for others. She coaches her clients to see this through her own practice, Rather than Rehab Addiction Recovery Coaching, and by working with Being True To You Recovery Coaching clients. Lori helps people remember who they really are without the mask of addiction. She also helps clients discover who they want to become, and then provides tools and accountability so they can reach that vision.

Lori brings a quarter century of experience with addiction and recovery, her lifetime of personal growth training, as well a highly intuitive nature to help clients reach freedom from their addictions. Her bestselling books include Rather than Rehab: Quit Bulimia & Upgrade Your Life and Safes Souls: Transforming Relationships Through the Power of Kind, Clean & Clear Communication. She also wrote an award-winning chapter in Jack Canfield’s bestseller, The Soul of Success: The World’s Leading Entrepreneurs & Professionals Reveal Their Core Strategies for Getting to the Heart of Health, Wealth & Success.

Her areas of focus are bulimia, binge eating disorder, and alcoholism, and coaching clients from “survival to thrival” is Lori’s honor and privilege. She lives with her husband, Ken, and their two rescue dogs in Phoenix, AZ and Vancouver, BC. (Guess which one she avoids in the summertime?) 😉
