Created by Chrissy D Ellis,
Founder & CEO at Nissaki Spiritual Center.

Hello and welcome to the world of recovery!! My name is Christine D Ellis; (Chrissy.) I am a New York State Board Certified Recovery Coach (CARC), I completed the Certified Recovery Peer Advocate training (CRPA), I am a Certified ITC (Invitation to Change) Group Facilitator through the CMC: Foundation for Change, and my journey began in 2013 in college as I studied the addictions program otherwise known as CASAC (Certified Alcohol & Substance Abuse Counselor.)

I have an extensive background in holistic healing services (over 24 years!!) I am a Feng Shui Consultant, Certified Herbalist, Certified Reiki Practitioner, Shaman Healer, Medical Intuitive, and a Certified Hypnotherapist just to name a few. I also practice a variety of non-religious spiritual concepts and I am an Ordained Minister.

I am actively involved in my own therapy (self-care) as well as countless workshops and continuing education classes. I have received a level of acceptance, understanding, and validation that aren't usually found in other professional relationships (or personal ones) and I would like to share what I've learned with others. I believe there are MULTIPLE pathways to recovery, and I'd like to help you find yours! 

MY STORY

I am an affected family member. This means that I have been exposed & impaired by family members (and friends) that have had a substance use disorder. After a lifetime of failed relationships and toxic behaviors that I had acquired, I finally got help. I have now been in therapy for about eight years. Sometimes we don't realize how things can negatively affect us, until we learn how to emotionally detox from those dysfunctional patterns and create healthy new ones. This does not happen overnight- I had to be very patient with the process. I had to be open and willing to learn, listen, and to try something different. You don't realize how toxic things are until you start to breathe fresh air.  

 

I went from being a Wanna-Be "fixer" to learning how to support other people while they fix themselves (like I did.) I have been studying addictions (formally) since 2013. I have worked in many areas of chemical dependency and found my true passion to be in prevention & recovery. Both are very important pieces of this crisis we call addiction. My goal is to work with communities by offering prevention programs for teens ages 12-17, coaching for individuals in recovery, and support to family members who are affected by substance use disorder. I would like to believe that if we work from both ends of the spectrum, we might be able to meet somewhere in the middle and end addiction. 

WHAT WE DO:

Welcome to our evidence based, substance use prevention & recovery program. We offer prevention education and recovery support services right from the comfort of your own home with your own device. We believe that coaching, instruction, and peer advocacy is a crucial part of the recovery process. Our goal is to make that easy and affordable with our virtual services and sliding scale fees. With our easy online access to meetings, groups, classes, and check-ins, you can focus more on your recovery and less on the stress of finding support.
