My name is Rachel, and I am a certified Peer Recovery Support Specialist. I am an Austin native and started with Infinite Recovery as an RCA. My battle with addiction and mental health began at a young age. I am a firm believer that addicts, and alcoholics begin abusing substances to fill a void that is within them, and I was born with that void being given away at birth for adoption. After multiple years of active addiction, I finally surrendered and got the help that I needed. After getting sober I found that my calling was to help others who struggle with the same disease. I love being able to work with clients who feel the world has turned a blind eye and the most rewarding part of my work is seeing the light come on in clients’ eyes. I am truly grateful that thanks to my experiences I am able to help others see that recovery is possible and they can live a life beyond their wildest dreams.
