Next Step Recovery Coaching is Live

Hello! My name is Joy Rigberg and I’m so excited to welcome you to my Next Step Recovery Coaching blog!

I absolutely love my new website and am sending lots of love and gratitude to my amazing website designer, Tzaddi Gordon, of Thrivewire, for her patience, kindness and understanding during this website birthing process! And what a process it’s been! Thank you Tzaddi! 🙂

I intend to use this blog to offer and share my hopes, dreams, obstacles, challenges, fears, failures, successes, etc. along with some extraordinary tools, affirmations + videos. I’m bringing 16+ years of experience as an educator + coach to the table — and I can’t wait to share my insights with you.

I would love for this place to be seen as an interactive forum, and safe place; where you can comment, question and even suggest new topics for discussion.

I am totally devoted to helping you end the cycle of relapse & discover your True Self — the strongest, calmest, and most empowered version of YOU.

So please, don’t be shy. Let me know what you’re needing for your recovery, right now, and I’ll do my best to provide some guidance and for sure some love and support!

Thanks for being here!

With love,
