“My mission is to help you reclaim your life from addiction and achieve lasting, fulfilled recovery”

About

ABOUT

My name is Tamera Martens. 

I started Seeds of Success Consulting and Coaching to help others who struggle with addictions to alcohol and drugs to find peace in their lives. Recovery coaching offers strengths-based support for persons with addictions or in recovery from codependency, or other addictive behaviors. Recovery coaches work with persons with active addictions as well as persons already in recovery. Our focus will be on today and your future. We will work to help you develop the skills you need to attain lasting, fulfilled recovery and to reclaim your life from addiction.

Now for the details: I earned my MA in Psychology from Regis University in Denver, Colorado, in 1999. My undergraduate work was completed at West Virginia University with an emphasis in Religious Studies. I have worked in the behavioral health field in a variety of capacities for the last 30 years. Program Counselor, Therapist, Crisis Specialist, Director – the titles are immaterial. What I know, is that I’m really good at helping people tap their inner strength and move toward health. I would love the opportunity to travel the road of recovery with you.

How it all began…

July 11, 2007 was the day my life turned upside down. The July 4th weekend partying had extended into the following week, as often happened in those days. I woke up that morning, hungover and tired; looked in the mirror and really LOOKED at myself. What I saw was a woman who was sad, lonely, and had a serious problem with alcohol. The denial and excuses fell away and I experienced a moment of absolute clarity; something needed to change. I called a friend who had 15 years of sobriety and did the previously unthinkable: I asked for help.

Before my friend left that day, she got really close to me. She looked me straight in the eyes and tapped the side of my head, saying “Recovery doesn’t happen here. “She then put her hand on my heart and said “It happens here.” Asking for help opened the door for miracles to occur. I got sober and learned how to stay that way. I became willing to try new things. I’m surrounded by amazing people who are true friends and supports. My finances turned around when I stopped spending all my extra money on booze and bars. The only difference between July 10 and July 11, was I became willing to do something different.
