Help for the addiction population: certified addictions specialist and master life coach announces coaching as psychological practice

Summary: Tricia Parido, Owner/Director of Turning Leaves Recovery, Life, and Wellness Coaching, a nationally certified coaching practice, announces coaching as a psychological practice for those suffering from disorders of substance abuse and mental health.

(April 22, 2019 – Central Coast California) The number of highly functioning women and men who are lacking appropriate impulse controls and engaging in a multitude of addictive behaviors is alarming. In fact, research shows that in 2017, 8.5 million American adults suffered from both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder, or co-occurring disorders, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). The survey also shows that almost 74% of adults suffering from a substance use disorder in 2017 struggled with an alcohol use disorder. However, all is not lost. Certified addictions specialist and master life coach Tricia Parido is using coaching as a viable way of helping the addiction population figure out why they do what they do and how to fix it. Through her private and unique skill building practice that is tailored to fit all of their specific needs, Parido is helping many turn over a new leaf in life.

“What I’ve discovered after six years as a professional in this industry and decades of general experience is that people simply need help understanding themselves,” explains Parido. “They need support to help guide them toward making the little shifts that will correct the inappropriate and impulsive decision making. They need educated answers to why their perceptions are skewed differently so they can identify where modifications need to be made. The list goes on and on, but it all truly equates to developing effective life skills to empower and improve their quality of life.”

Parido addresses the fact that the individuals she serves have co-dependency and attachment disorders that need to be shifted into healthy functioning. She is on a mission to provide personalized, high-quality care that will guide individuals toward an empowered and improved quality of life and wellness. As Owner/Director of Turning Leaves Recovery, Life, and Wellness Coaching, a nationally certified coaching practice, she has spent years assuring that those whom she is entrusted with are motivated and empowered to conquer their addictions, reconnect with life, gain a renewed sense of self and develop personal control.

Parido earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology from Walden University. This educational experience provided her with a strong focus on behavioral, social, and cross-cultural psychology as well as in-depth studies on addiction, personalities, psychological disorders, interdisciplinary perspectives of healthcare, treatment modalities, personal health, and wellness. While at Walden, she was a member of the Dean’s List, National Society of Leadership and Success, Phi Theta Kappa and Psy Chi.

Parido also completed, with honors, the California Association of Alcohol and Drug Educators Substance Abuse Counselor Certification program in Mental Health at Saddleback College. Areas covered in this program included field instruction, pharmacology, human service, group leadership, alcohol and other drugs, substance abuse intervention and treatment, case administration, crisis intervention and recovery, family dynamics, human development in the social environment and ethical issues/client rights, multicultural and divided populations in the us and co-occurring disorders. Her certifications include: CATCIII (Certified Addiction Treatment Counselor III), IMAC (International Master Addictions Coach), and NCPLC (Nationally Certified Professional Life Coach).
