Amy Boyers, Ph.D. - Adolescent and Adult Psychotherapy
RECOVERY COACHING
Dr. Boyers now offers clients a broader range of services to help them meet their recovery goals.  These are personalized services available to Dr. Boyers's clients and those who are working with other clinicians in the community.  These Recovery Coaches will meet you either in your home or at a location in the community (when appropriate) to help support you in your journey towards recovery.  These coaches are highly experienced in their respective fields and understand the "nuts and bolts" of what needs to be done to change behavioral patterns.

The following recovery coaching services are currently available:
  • Meal Support:  This can be used in the home, at a restaurant, grocery store, or any other location where clients might need help making appropriate food choices.  Our coaches are also able to work with parents and caregivers who may be responsible for feeding or supporting a loved one with an eating disorder.  The coaches are trained in Intuitive Eating but are also able to implement a meal plan as designed by a registered dietician.  These services can be used as an adjunct to outpatient therapy, during a time of transition from a higher level of care, or to support an individual waiting to enter a residential treatment center.  
  • Sober Coaching:  This service can be quite helpful for those working towards sobriety and feel they need a more personalized service to meet their goals.  Our sober coaches are well-versed in the 12-step model but also able to support those who wish to try another approach.  The sober coaches can be used to set goals for sobriety, as a source of support to help individuals understand their experiences, for case management, to help those new to recovery build structure, to accompany a client to appointments or meetings, to escort a client to a social event, or to escort a client to appointments or meetings.  These services can be used at any stage of recovery but can be particularly useful to those who recently stepped down out of a treatment program or who have recently relapsed.
  • Case Management:  There are times when individuals with psychological disorders are so overwhelmed by their symptoms, it is difficult for them function or pursue their goals.  The case manager can work one on one with clients to set attainable and appropriate goals that will help clients move towards greater independence and functionality.  Often times, this is quite helpful to family members who feel that supporting a loved on in this way has been detrimental to their relationship.  The case manager can work closely with a client's therapist to do therapeutic work in between sessions, such as exposure and response prevention, goal setting, and life skills.
