Maggie Goldberg is a graduate from the University of Miami with a Bachelors degree in Psychology. While based in Miami, Florida, travel both nationally and internationally can be arranged. Her choice of study and personal life experiences have led her into working with addictions and recovery with a specialty niche within the LGBTQ community. Through The Addictions Academy, Maggie has gained her IMAC certification and is qualified to help alcoholics, drug addicts and food addicts (NCRC, NCFAC). Certified in both family coaching and life coaching (NCFRC, NCLC) she is able to help others not suffering from addiction to understand what an addict goes through and then teach them how to change their behaviors to better help their loved ones. She is certified to run interventions and work with clients for extended stays doing sober companionship and sober living.
If she cannot help, she will do no harm and has a team of treatment centers, detox centers, medical professionals, lawyers, legal professionals and other coaches that can be of service. She is the founder of Recovery Begins Now which focuses on helping those with addictions get into and stay in recovery and helps their families to prepare for their new life. Having gone through it herself, Maggie is aware that recovery is a process with many steps and she is there to be a guide along the rough journey. She firmly believes that the best results come from the client setting their own goals and time frames and being held responsible for following through. Recovery begins now, when they step up and ask for help. When they are ready for a new life. When they are ready to do the work.
Maggie has a deep commitment to the LGBTQ community. Her close ties and understanding allow her to help many clients that may need specialized attention in certain aspects of their lives. This community has played a large role in her life leading up to and within her recovery and having someone like-minded and supportive is very comforting during this time. Being 25 years old she has a very personal understanding of the environment that young adults are growing up in today and the struggles that many of them face. Setting goals and creating action plans are vital but finding healthy hobbies and activities in ones’ life is a difficult task for an addict in recovery. Creating a bucket list of activities with clients and helping them check off the boxes is something that she loves. She is also an animal lover and is fond of dogs being used as a tool for recovery. Spirituality and a holistic approach through meditation, healthy eating habits, living in the present and a breaking down of the ego are invaluable. Maggie can help guide you on this journey of self discovery and finding love for yourself and those around you.
