Therapeutic Support and Coaching (Individual & Group)

Oftentimes, individuals are able to participate in the recovery community of their choice by attending meetings and calling their sponsor. However, there are times in life when additional support or intervention is needed. Sometimes there is need for more individualized care. Other times, individuals struggle with social anxiety or even panic when presented with entering those rooms. Malinda offers affordable recovery coaching, telephonically, in person, and by group. 

Malinda has partnered with West Nashville United Methodist Church to support the recovery community!

Is life out of balance? Is there someting in your life you want to change?


Join "Overcoming Barriers in Recovery, Life & Relationships," a 6 week long support group that will incorporate a cool mix of educational, spiritual and therapeutic components.

Proclamation of Recovery Success

I have a disorder, but I am not a disorder. I am separate from my disorder, and I accept the responsibility to do whatever it takes to maintain that separation. I have the ability and responsibility to recognize the voice of my disorder and to disagree with it when it tells me what I should do.

I accept full responsibility for continuing to develop my personal vision of emotional and physical health in specific terms, and for focusing my attention toward that positive vision.

When I stumble or slip in my recovery, I respond with compassion and firmness like a strong, loving parent who accepts her child unconditionally.

I know that perfection is not an option, and I disagree when old programming tells me that it is.
