About Mary Sue Rabe



Several years ago I wondered why I could not seem to find the time or energy to move forward to achieve the goals and desires that I wanted so badly. I felt stuck, not pleased with myself as I kept doing the same things expecting different results.

My life “looked good” on the outside, but I was miserable. I finally realized that I was using alcohol, food, relationships, etc to fill a void in my life, and this process of “using” was distracting me from reaching my potential. All of my energy went into partying and then recovering, so I could not get anywhere. I needed to do something different.

I sensed that changing my relationship with substances might be a game-changer, but I was not willing to lose my friends or social life. How was I going to do this? I took a long, hard look at myself, my goals and my behaviors. I realized that it was still a problem even though I didn't feel like I was over-using. 

So, I decided to stop drinking at least briefly and see how I felt about it. I am now proud to say I don't feel owned by that addiction. I felt better physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually [PEMS]. I attained my goals in a way I couldn't before. My relationships improved. When I woke up in the morning I had no hangover, no regrets and I knew where I was. 

That was 35 years ago. After that I started working with other women to help them manage their drinking. I've studied and worked with a variety of coaching, counselling and healing modalities, so I have a lot of experience and tools to help people. 

Working with Mary Sue Rabe 

This is for you if...

  • you spend your free time drinking too much and then feel let down by yourself
  • others complain about your behavior when you drink (e.g. spouse, children, parents, etc.)
  • your behavior is interfering with reaching your goals, fulfilling your dreams
  • you drink to fit in with or appease others (e.g. your spouse, social circle)

Work with me as a coach to discover simple changes that can make a big, positive impact. Let me help you discover the obstacles keeping you from showing up fully for yourself, your dreams and your transformation.

I will provide you with mindset shifts, practices, tools and skills to assist you on your journey.
