Lynn Cohen has been in the executive and personal coaching industry for over 20 years. During this time, Lynn has successfully worked with executives at all levels within large and small corporations who want to improve their overall performance and leadership ability. She also works with individuals who are looking to make positive change in their lives. Lynn’s clients love her style, her out of the box thinking, her ability to dig deep, her keen observation and listening skills and her results oriented methods.
This knowledge, passion and ability to bring about positive change for so many individuals was tested in a way she never dreamed of when someone she loved became addicted to drugs. Much was learned along the way from her family’s first- hand experience with intervention, detox, rehabs and Ibogaine. After many years of moving through the process of addiction to recovery with her family member, Lynn saw the opportunity to help the families and individuals who were going through this same difficult journey.
After receiving two addiction-recovery-coaching certifications, she began coaching parents and families, who had people they loved, who were experiencing addiction, and soon after, began coaching those committed to recovery.
In addition, Lynn is a disciplined practitioner of yoga and meditation which she had begun practicing herself during a stressful transitional period in her life. Eventually, she became a certified yoga and meditation instructor after experiencing the profoundly positive, life altering and healing affects these practices had on her own life. She deepened her yoga training by becoming certified in teaching yoga to those in recovery or suffering from PTSD or trauma.
Her innovative and non- threatening approach to teaching meditation was having encouraging influences on her students so she decided to bring these classes into rehabs and sober living homes where she witnessed how immensely helpful and restorative these techniques are to those in recovery at all levels.
Lynn’s other specialty is teaching emotional intelligence skills, which happen to be critical in helping those in recovery to learn to manage their pain, anger and other intense emotions in constructive ways rather than self – medicating or suppressing them.
Through the use of tools like coaching, meditation, yoga, and emotional intelligence development, a huge gap in the current recovery industry for both families and those seeking recovery can be filled. By strengthening the body and the mind and by learning to manage one’s emotions rather than being the victim of them, people can begin to take back mastery of their lives.
Recovery is not a one size fits all solution. Everyone learns and grows differently. And the philosophy of coaching is very different from therapy. Coaching is all about creating a vision and designing a plan that the client is engaged in and feels pulled forward by. Coaching is not about fixing the past, but rather taking all of who you are and using that to create a life you are excited to live.
Although she still greatly enjoys coaching executives and individuals, her passion has now extended to assisting those families and individuals dealing with addiction and recovery.

Graceann Orlando: Recovery Liaison Consultant
Graceann Orlando grew up in South Florida, near Delray Beach, where she experienced living in an area overloaded with drugs, addicts and recovery. Because of the area she grew up in, she had experiences with many of her friends becoming addicted, dying or becoming stagnant in their growth from drug addiction. She also witnessed friends who recovered from their addictions and began to notice what they did that caused their improvement.
Having worked in the recovery industry for over 5 years, Graceann brings her abundance of experience in many different areas of recovery including detox, halfway houses and rehabs. Her skills range from making sure her clients follow their daily structured routines, as well as, medical compliance where she was in charge of ordering and making sure all medications for clients with substance abuse and mental health issues were properly filled and dispensed.
Graceann worked hand in hand with ARNP’s who specialize in mental health and substance abuse, where she learned a great deal about medical terminology, common disorders among recovering addicts and the best medications to use for these disorders.
While attending classes at The School for Addiction Counselors, she was taught first hand the best practices to be used in situations that require boundaries and delicacy. In addition, she learned how to mediate between parents and their addicted sons and daughters, so that they could better understand each other.
Graceann has established relationships with multiple recovery businesses and brings her wealth of knowledge on intake into detox and rehab centers with her to Rise Up Recovery Solutions.

Coaching and training those in recovery on how to do a job search, on interviewing techniques and on how to get your confidence back after being on the rough road of addiction to recovery has become a mission for Jeff.
He believes getting back to work is a crucial step in maintaining recovery but knows that it is often a tough hurdle. Not only do those in recovery need to find themselves again, but also because of things people do while addicted, their backgrounds are often met with resistance from many companies who interview them, making employment an even tougher prospect.
Because of this, diligent, disciplined effort is required both in the job search and in sustaining a job. Jeff offers continued coaching support to those who need it during this phase of recovery.
Jeff coaches both individuals and groups at your location, by phone or at his location.
