Feeling powerFULL instead of powerless is possible.

Freedom from alcohol coaching for high-potential people.

I have so much to be grateful for but something’s still just...


What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I just snap out of this?

Oof. You feel that, right?

From the outside looking in, it’s all good on paper. You’re running a household, raising a family, and working hard. But everyone’s counting on you to serve, and so it makes sense that this “do more, be more, never enough” feeling has you counting on a few too many glasses of wine to help you live up to it. 

It’s not rock bottom – you’re the one who “has it all together,” after all – but it sure is uncomfortable. Even though you can’t quite put a finger on what’s going on, you’re tuned in enough to know that the alcohol, unhealthy habits, and quick fixes are eating away at you. 

When was the last time you felt real peace?

The peace you’re searching for is possible for you. 

When you feel the pressure to give 100% of your time and effort to your children, husband, career, friends, and other responsibilities, the temporary release from a glass of wine feels like the bit of glue holding it (and you) all together. 

Your path to healing and more joy can start with eliminating alcohol from your life (which would be good enough), but we can do even better than that. True freedom comes when not drinking alcohol is effortless. (And I mean really effortless, not the “don’t let ‘em see you sweat!” kind.)

But the truth? It’s actually getting in the way of everything you desire. 

You’re already closer than you know to...

Waking up each day lighter, brighter, and with an unshakeable inner peace

Enjoying real connectedness from social events and special moments with friends and family

Feeling your thoughts really relax, thinking about what you care about for a change (instead of the bottle your friends are drinking or the chardonnay waiting at home or how many glasses is too many


You just need some coaching to get your brain on board, and a guide to help you reconnect with the truth.

Compassionate, individual coaching 

Here’s the secret: true, lasting freedom from alcohol comes by removing not the drink itself but by removing the desire to drink, therefore completely eliminating the temptation (and all of the stress alongside it!). 

Freedom from alcohol coaching with me offers supportive, practical tools to help free alcohol’s hold on your body, heart, and mind. You’ll feel about a zillion times lighter with no more time or energy wasted buying it, thinking about it, planning for it, prepping for it, worrying about it, apologizing for it, or trying to control how much and how often you drink it. (That’s a long list, huh?! Believe me, I understand.)

for freedom from alcohol

Here’s how
we create a personalized coaching experience that helps you find YOUR own freedom: 

  1. With abundant grace and compassion in a strictly judgment-free space we explore the things that could be keeping you stuck. (There’s no story I haven’t heard and trust me, I have plenty I can share of my own.)
  2. We talk about where you are and where you want to go: take a break from alcohol? Empower yourself to moderate mindfully? Take a break from alcohol, forever? There are no wrong answers and no hidden agendas. YOU step into the power of choice, I’m here to support you and YOUR goals. (Don't know your goals? That's ok too. We can work on them together.)
  3. With my great library of effective, practical tools for change, we choose the ones that are the best fit for you and, when you’re ready, put them into practice. I guide you as we create a plan for accomplishing your goals so you can feel the freedom and joy that exists on the other side of change.

All you have to do is show up with an open mind, an open heart and a desire to make a change – no matter how big or small. 

You get to choose, you set the pace. And I get the honor of walking with you and supporting you every step of the way!

Meet yourCoach

I'm Meade Shirley, a reformed people-pleaser, former gray-area drinker, and  certified coach. 

I’m here to guide you to pursue a life of freedom—freedom from alcohol, freedom from people-pleasing, freedom from allowing the hustle to define your worth. You’ll come away with that missing peace you’ve been seeking for so long, with the confidence to pursue everything you’re meant to in life. Because here’s the REAL truth: Life is not in the doing more, drinking more, or being more. It's simply in the being. And I’m by your side. 

Your questions are welcome here.

Q: What is the This Naked Mind Institute approach?

The This Naked Mind coaching methodology is a very specific means of coaching people to move beyond the constraint of alcohol or any destructive pattern. You’ll learn about the subconscious brain’s powerful role in the choices we make and the key to changing unwanted behaviors. It’s a positive, shame-free solution to give you freedom in your relationship with alcohol and give you the tools to help take your power back so you can decide what’s right for you.

Q: What if I’m not sure I have a problem with alcohol?

We’re used to thinking there are just two categories of drinkers: social drinkers who can take it or leave it and alcoholics who can’t stop. But there’s another category called gray-area drinkers that might resonate with you. From the outside looking in, a “gray-area drinker” doesn’t appear to have a problem with alcohol. But from the inside looking out, their drinking is a problem for them. So if there’s something about your drinking habits that you want to change, regardless of labels, that’s all you need to know. 

Q: It feels like everyone I know drinks alcohol and I can’t imagine a social function without it… what if I’m not sure I really want to be alcohol free?

It’s up to you, and we can explore what feels right to you as we work together. There is a LOT of joy and fulfillment in living alcohol free, but it’s not the only way. I’ll help you work through your feelings and habits so you can set better boundaries, define what freedom looks like to you, and establish the deeper connections you’re really looking for.

Q: How long does coaching with you last? 

Truthfully, it depends on your needs and what kind of support would make a real difference for you! We’ll talk about this more personally as we begin our work together, but many of my clients find that meeting once a week for 12 weeks ends up being right for them. 

Uncover what’s keeping you stuck, and unlock the real you.

You deserve to experience the power of peace.
