Accepting New Connections

I do life with you, not for you. I’m here to listen and share my experience of what's working for me and others I know. I won't tell you what to do, but I can help you find solutions that align with your own vision of success. I support all pathways to recovery from whatever is setting you back, whether it's a substance, behavior, relationship or mental health.

About Melinda Dorn


I've worked as a chef in the restaurant industry for over 25 years. In that time I've struggled hopelessly with addictions, anxiety, depression, burnout, and family/relationship issues. I've been on the path to recovery from all that since 2016, and life no longer feels like punishment. I've seen radical improvements thanks to peers who supported me through it all. I'm glad to share that change is not only possible, but within reach of each of us.


Recovery Story

Life is good! I have time for fun and play, now. For me, emotional sobriety came before chemical sobriety, and my journey includes multiple pathways to wellness.

My Motivation To Help

I want to assist individuals toward their own goals, not mine. I've always had a heart for service, but I'd like to share the sort of support I've received in recent years.
