What is Coaching?

Coaching is encouraging, hope-filled, motivational and action-driven. It is about calling forth the intellect, brilliance, amazing problem-solving, and creativity in you. It’s also about growing in self-awareness, personal strengths and stretching yourself to staying intentional about your healing journey.

An easy way to view coaching is through a medical analogy. You are in a major car accident (discovery or relapse day). You are rushed into surgery, they just want to get the bleeding to stop, get it contained (initial support could look like pastor, mentor). Days later (in our case sometimes weeks or months) you are still in the hospital. Your body is beginning to heal from the traumatic day (scabs appearing) they decide to go in for another surgery to “fix” somethings (therapist). Following surgery your body is beginning to heal well but the muscles are still weak. You are referred out to Physical Therapy (coaching). You are given individual who assesses the injury, understands the workings of a healthy body and helps you construct a plan of recovery. You both work to come up with exercises that will both improve and strengthen your body and heart.

What can you expect? 

We will work together to help you look at where you are now and where you would like to be. Together we will work to bridge that gap. We will pray together…probably cry together, and run hard after Jesus together.

I believe that accountability is just as important for you as it is for the addict. This is a great place to find accountability and keep moving toward healing as you learn new tools to navigate your journey.

Shawna Meek, CPC, PCC, APSATS-CPC, truly understands the roots of attachment distress in a marriage, even after addiction sobriety.

She is passionate about supporting women as they face specific challenges on this journey, including boundaries during separation and divorce, abuse and gaslighting, therapeutic disclosure preparation, intimacy anorexia and deprivation, and emotional and sexual reintegration.

Shawna and her husband, Kevin, live in Gilbert, Arizona, and have a story of God’s incredible redemption following separation, divorce, re-marriage and betrayal. They have four amazing kiddos ranging from elementary school age to a young adult in college – both biological and adopted.

“My coach helped uncover something hidden in my heart that Jesus was trying to uncover, but without her challenging questions, I never would have seen it. … the direction of my life is now actually changed toward what God has called me to do.”


“My coach is always listening to me, tracking with my heart, not just my words. With that approach, she is able to ask questions to my heart that causes my heart to go deeper, unveiling more territory that needs to be explored.”


“… in the beginning we set goals and I thought sarcastically ‘sure this is going to work and help me feel unstuck.’ Then within a few weeks I saw changes within me from working on these goals that I didn’t think would really work.”


“My coach was the calm in the storm … helping me have more clarity and calm. She offered healthy approaches to dealing with my children and situation.”
