"The empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description.”


~ Steve Maraboli

The journey into recovery is a decision you have to make with your entire being. But once you make that decision it’s time to take action. That action relies on your ability to take the next steps. To take those next steps, you must know what they are. And you need evidence-based guidance that leads you towards your inner strength. 

Finding your inner strength and taking those next steps can be overwhelming. I fully understand that. My name is Leida Lamas-Sheldon and I am a Certified Professional Coach as well as a She Recovers Coach. I am certified in addictions nursing, psychiatry and have over 20 years of experience in substance use disorders. I’m also in recovery myself—so I understand the challenges you face. 

By creating a judgement-free space, I empower women to make the best decisions for themselves. I support my coaching clients in both complete abstinence or harm reduction. I believe that self-discovery, balance, and honesty can create a recipe for sobriety success. 

I can help you take the next step towards the life you want to live. 

Join hundreds of other women who have discovered their inner strength and now live a substance abuse-free life, through recovery coaching. 



Let’s start by examining what recovery coaching isn’t. It isn’t therapy. It is a way to find and tap into the strengths you have to overcome the struggles you face. A collaborative approach is the best path towards total recovery. A good recovery coach takes a guiding role, and never forces you into an uncomfortable recovery process. Equally, accountability is important if you truly want to recover. Setting and achieving your goals depends on it. 


A few key indicators that recovery coaching could work for you include: 

  • There is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be. 

  • You have just started your path towards recovery and want to learn more. 

  • You are familiar with recovery but feel you’re not able to leverage your authentic self and strengths to the betterment of your recovery. 

  • You’re eager to have support at every stage of your recovery process. 

  • You need more awareness around the habits contributing to relapses.
