She Recovers Every Day with Dr. Dawn Nickel

In this candid conversation, Dr. Tiffany Wynn speaks with SHE RECOVERS Co-Founder Dr.Dawn Nickel about:

  • The herstory of SHE RECOVERS Foundation – born from Dawn’s longing to find an inclusive recovery community
  • Dawn’s personal experience as a woman recovering from substance use disorder, codependency, overworking and intergenerational trauma
  • Recovery as a family affair
  • Why recovering out-loud, redefining recovery and providing identity-based support are all essential in our society today

You will also hear Dr. Tiffany read the January 30th meditation about infant loss from Dawn’s new book ‘She Recovers Everyday’ and explore how we can heal – from all the things – when we truly feel a sense of connection and belonging.


Dr. Tiffany Wynn is a behavioral health leader with a PhD in Counsellor Education who focuses on trauma and resiliency, behavioral management, leadership and professional development. Tiffany holds many professional roles including trainer and consultant for academic and treatment organizations, and she is also a woman in long term recovery. Tiffany embodies all that we believe in here at SHE RECOVERS and infuses the SHE RECOVERS inclusive recovery community ethos into all that she does.


Dr.Dawn Nickel is a Certified Professional Recovery Coach, with a PhD and consulting expertise related to women and health care policy and the author of SHE RECOVERS Every Day. In her work as a researcher, Dawn has focused largely on exploring how best to support women who experience substance use disorders, mental health issues, and intimate partner violence.

Dawn currently identifies as being in active recovery from anxiety, grief, workaholism and the patriarchy.

When she isn’t writing, working as a healthcare and social policy consultant, or helping to grow the movement she started, Dawn can be found hanging out at home with her family, walking or hiking, and doing puzzles. Her life goals include “graduating” therapy, writing more books and a screenplay, completing her travel bucket list, and spending quality time with family.
