My name is Rick Fortier, and I have first-hand experience with addiction, recovery, and mental and emotional health.
It was my recovery journey and all those who supported me along the way which inspired me to help others.
Especially men who (like I once did) feel disenchanted, lost, frustrated, alone, and a deepening sense of quiet desperation.
That was me, approaching fifty, seemingly with the perfect middle-class corporate life, yet teetering on the edge of disaster.
My mental and physical health alarms were blaring, pleading with me to change. It took a mental, emotional, and physical crisis to force me to look at what wasn’t working for me.
Through the help of mental health professionals and recovery groups, I discovered that my alcohol and pornography dependencies were symptoms of something deeper within myself.
You don’t have to wait for a crisis. Reach out today.
I am a Health and Wellness Mentor, and the author of the unique personal-development novel, ‘The Shift Squad’.
I am a public speaker, certified NLP practitioner, SMART Recovery© Facilitator, and trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
I am an advocate for, and instructor of men to be self-empowered, inspired, and motivated to Show Up and Shift – to live authentically and to experience contentment and gratitude in life – one choice at a time.
