Lynn is a gifted therapist.

She challenges the way I approach my own recovery and gives me ideas on ways I can grow.  Highly recommend.  Give it a go no matter what you’re recovering from.

Lynn, you are extremely good at what you do!

It’s rare to find a person with the right mix of intuition, the ability to hold people accountable and compassion. When I think of Lynn Matti, this quote comes to mind…

“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of”


Just what I’ve been looking for!

I discovered Lynn and this podcast a few months ago and it has made the biggest impact on me since I started this journey years ago. Aside from having the most lovely and soothing voice she has mastered a perfect balance of honesty, compassion, science and practical tips. At a time where sobriety is getting so much press I find Lynn’s philosophy and approach so grounded with facts, personal experience and a genuine desire to help others find their way through overuse. Lynn’s personal story resonates so very much with me (so much so I think we were living parallel lives in her overuse years) and it gives me hope that I too can figure out my personal journey into recovery. I have learned so much and am so grateful to her for making what is a hell of a ride just that bit more manageable. Thank you for all that you do for me and all the other aspiring sober soulers out there.

I wish I could explain how much I appreciate you!

You have been a huge part of my recovery and I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for you! It is crazy how much you have impacted me in such a short time! Every time I hear Prince I’ll think you…oh, and for introducing me to the “B” word!

Thanks, thanks and more thanks!

Thank you Lynn for your support, direction, advice and instruction this past year. It has been a rough journey at times, but I am so content and happy with this new reality. Your challenging and encouraging me has made a big impact and I appreciate it so much.

5 Stars

Lynn has a great modern approach to sobriety. She articulates her feelings in a very understanding and authentic manner.

Soul Care

No matter what you are struggling with in life, Lynn’s podcast should become a major part of your “soul care” routine. Lynn uses a clear, easy to understand approach to discuss very complex human issues and behaviors. After every episode I walk away with new tools and lots of information that I can immediatly put into practice. Lynn conveys her ideas candidly and makes her audience feel safe by sharing her own story, research data and her wisdom. I love listening to her soothing voice !

A true, true professional!!!

True heart and caring for all of us and all of our struggles. Truth is sharing and humility. Truth in inviting us to believe in our own abilities and allowing us to find our own personal way to get and stay sober, but mostly, to live a life of freedom from those circumstances that sometimes drag us down.


I look forward each week to Lynn’s wisdom.  She has a novel approach and I always come away with useful info!  She is guiding me on the road to a sober life!

So gifted!

I love Lynn Matti’s straightforward, no-nonsense, neurobiological, psychosocial, approach to addiction and life. She tackles painful challenges while making you laugh at the same time. She is instrumental in my recovery.

Hi, I’m Lynn

Why work with me?

My powerful, effective combination of holistic and evidenced-based therapy coaching In 2009,  (based on the principles of counseling) offers you a peaceful path to clarity, contentment and getting your needs met.  I use effective, action-oriented, and positive approaches that help you get results. Through solution-focused coaching, based on your needs. the tools that work for you with guidance and support to build the life you deserve!

In 2009, when I decided to change my relationship with alcohol and anxiety medication, I sought help from people with professional training, mental health education, and real-life experience.  My desire was to have someone who had formal education and training to teach me how to work through my anxiety, depression and learn mental wellness skills. The only choice I had was to go to AA, residential or outpatient treatment and I wanted to offer more choice, to possibly start the process of Recovery much, much sooner!

As a fully trained and currently licensed to work all mental health issues and a woman in 10+ years of Recovery, I am uniquely qualified to help you.  Someone who is a coach without a Master’s degree in counseling (an undergraduate in psychology is not the same thing) does not have the education, practice or clinical experience to work with the underlying and coexisting issues that so often accompany the overuse of substances and unhealthy coping/mental health challenges behaviors, such as depression, anxiety, perfectionism, trauma or major life transitions or adjustments. 

There is much misinformation regarding the differences between coaching and counseling, especially from the perspective of a coach. This was a contributing factor in why I created SoberSoul Recovery, to offer recovery and life coaching with a substantially trained, experienced & licensed mental health professional.

I offer a modern, accessible, and empowering pathway to sustainable lifelong recovery.

We are drinking, using drugs, worshipping busyness more than ever before.


To numb our STRESS!

Why are we so stressed?

Because we feel the need to take advantage of and be perfect at all of the options available to us. 

Because we fear not being accepted and liked

Because we feel responsible for everything and everyone

Because we equate alone time with depression and selfishness.

Because we are unwilling and/or unable to prioritize our needs over anyone else’s

And guess what?

There are 5 traits that lead to addiction and lack of mental wellbeing.


People Pleasing



Low Self-Esteem


Which is why so many of us who think just quitting or changing our mindset about alcohol or drugs will set us free.


When we are really looking for more than that.


We want:


To feel strong and “good enough” no matter what life throws at us

To speak up when we need to articulate our needs.


To ask for support and feel safe being supported.
To trust our intuition and quiet our inner-critic.
To connect with honesty and spiritually with ourselves
To be a confident woman supported by strong self-esteem.
This is what is possible with IntuitiveSoul Coaching.
Mental wellness transformation requires more than a new mindset…are you ready?
