Hello, I am Toni Andra and my passion is to serve and assist individuals in finding ways to their authentic self. I am a registered nurse of 15 years with a strong background in health and wellness. Since my recent move to sunny California almost 3 years ago, I have been able to face my inner demons and transform into an awakened woman of light. I have found processes that have taught me strength and given me the ability to overcome stumbling blocks that have held me back from reaching my full potential. As I have healed and grown into my authentic self, it is my purpose and passion to share these processes and gifts with others so they too can transform and heal into the beautiful soul they were destined to be.
Hi, my name is Michael Conroy. I have been sober for over 18 years and my passion is to share the gift of sobriety with the world. My mission is to provide compassion and empathy to those who are struggling to overcome addiction. I believe that a caring voice can be the difference between successful living or, falling into a black hole.
Action is the key to beating addiction and when we do it together, we can move mountains!
If you've tried so many times but you feel like the addiction's just got you beat - give us a call....
I am credentialed and compassionate. I've helped many people. I can help you too.
Ronnie is originally from Detroit, Michigan but has been living in California for over 13 years. He moved here looking to find a place to begin his new life in addiction recovery. His first job in the substance abuse treatment field was at a well-known Malibu treatment facility where he worked for 8+ years. It was at this facility that he realized that working with individuals who were seeking recovery and looking to live a life free from alcohol and drugs was to be his calling. It was there that he became CATC-I certified and decided to make this field his life's work. Since then he has worked as a group facilitator as well as a sober coach for many private clients.
Ronnie's belief system is that anyone seeking recovery should be met right where they are. They should have the opportunity to work through their issues alongside people who people who know what they are going through and can show them a different way.
