Dr. KJ Foster, PHD
(POWERLESS TO POWERFUL)
DR. KJ FOSTER, Ph.D. is a Mental Health Expert, Author, Educator, Entrepreneur, Speaker, and YouTube Creator. Dr, Foster celebrated 12 years clean and sober on July, 20th, 2020. In Dr. Foster's own words she describes her powerful transformation.
"Looking at my life today, it's hard to believe that there was a time when I felt totally hopeless and didn't want to live anymore. A time when I couldn't stop drinking. A time when I was also struggling with the overwhelming fear and desperation of having a son addicted to drugs. An addiction that was robbing his very soul, while my addiction was taking over mine. An illness and compulsion that completely takes over the mind, body, and behavior of the sufferer! As I watched my son continue to spiral out of control, slowly killing himself before my very eyes, I felt terrified, overwhelmed, and completely powerless. The truth is... I WAS powerless! Until the day the pain to stay the same became greater than the pain to change. This is where my recovery journey began... with pain! Lots and lots of pain!"
When Dr. Foster was 14 months sober, her son began his own journey of recovery. He is now healthier, stronger, and more powerful than he ever was before the addiction took hold.
They both are!! And it all started with focusing on her own change, and recovery.
Since that time, over a decade ago, Dr. Foster went back to school and became a licensed mental health counselor, a certified addiction professional, a specialist in relapse prevention, earned a doctorate in counselor education, and created Fostering Resilience.
