Samara Ibanez, Certified Sinclair Method Coach, Certified Holistic Health & Nutrition Coach
Samara’s passion for helping others with AUD stems from her own 27 year long battle with alcohol and substances that began at an early age. Being a part of AA for 15 years she then found herself in a toxic cycle of abstinence and relapse. She also suffered from torturous cravings and triggers. She simply could not get control of her drinking no matter what she tried...until she found TSM. The Sinclair Method quite literally saved her life. And because of that she now knows she was saved to serve you!

Brenda Litke, Certified Sinclair Method Coach
Brenda Litke is a certified Sinclair Method Coach. She has been working in the healthcare field since 1999, helping people overcome various health challenges and improve their overall well-being. Brenda has battled with alcohol since the age of 15 and has tried various treatments for alcohol addiction, including: inpatient and outpatient programs, Shick Shadel, AA, SMART Recovery, Moderation Management, microdosing, acupressure, and hypnosis. However, none of these methods worked for her in the long term. Brenda started the Sinclair Method (TSM). She experienced a remarkable change in her drinking behavior. She no longer felt the urge to drink excessively or compulsively. She was able to moderate or abstain from alcohol as she wished. She regained control of her life and health. She has also done inner work on herself and has healed from trauma, Complex PTSD, and low self-esteem. She has learned to love and respect herself. She has done the inner work that is necessary for lasting recovery. And she can help others do the same.
