As a physician, and mother of three, Dr. Vanessa Klugman
balanced the demands of a career and family for many years until
the stress became overwhelming. She turned to poor coping
mechanisms to escape the demands that she placed on herself.
In recovery, she learned effective ways to face negative
emotions: set boundaries that protect her sobriety; face limiting
beliefs and heal old wounds.
Dr. Klugman is a certified recovery coach through Crossroads
recovery and is accredited through the International Coaching
Federation. She holds a BA from the University of Chicago and MD
from the University of Illinois at Chicago. She completed her
residency in Internal Medicine at Rush University Medical Center
and her fellowship in endocrinology at the University of Chicago.
She practiced endocrinology for 22 years and has been in recovery
since June 2015.
Dr. Klugman's passion is to guide others battling to find a
healthy balance in their lives, to disconnect from their inner
critic and reconnect with their inner wisdom.
