Pills and Skills Recovery

Bringing Recovery to You

Hi! I'm Dr. Chris Maria   

I'm a recovery coach, and I help people achieve and maintain their recovery from a mental illness. 

I was diagnosed with a mental illness 15 years ago, and for years, I struggled to maintain my recovery. I would do well for a while but then I'd be in a mental health crisis. Over time, however, thanks to individual and group therapy, outpatient and even inpatient behavioral health hospital programs, I learned how to maintain my recovery. Now, it's my mission to help others achieve and maintain their recovery too. I do this through my recovery coaching service, Pills and Skills Recovery. So if you are ready to begin your journey of recovery or need help maintaining your recovery, I can coach you on your next best steps.

Radio Show

In addition to coaching, I inform listeners about recovery on my weekly radio talk show that airs on WHRT (HIS Radio Talk91.9 and 89.7, a contemporary Christian radio station in Greenville, SC. My show airs

As Christians, many of us will not go see a therapist or psychiatrist so my motto is "bringing recovery to you." I do this by bringing you research-based information on a variety of recovery topics such as healing from trauma, healing mother wounds, domestic violence, setting healthy boundaries and more.

Testimonial

I sat in my chair staring feelings of sheer exhaustion mentally, emotionally, physically. Suffering from the blows of life challenges that I was facing. I felt hopeless. My confidence was shattered, and my future looked bleak. I desperately needed a voice of wisdom and guidance. God divinely put in my path one day a particular broadcast Pills and Skills Recovery hosted by Dr. Chris Maria. I felt immediately the reassurance in her spirit and voice as a woman who could relate to individuals who had been wounded by life. I set up a 45 min consultation. It has been one of the best decisions I ever made. The coaching sessions that we have had, I see myself as a more self -confident person. As well, I feel more emotionally stable with the new life skills I'm learning and that we discuss and practice. I'm totally on the road of recovery, with a new beginning. A life that is now thriving with a new outlook on a brighter future.
