About Nadine Steele

I believe in the resilience of a woman’s soul. To rise up when she’s been taken down.  That woman has a story to tell. A truth to speak. A life to life.

I believe at the core of her heart she is exceptional, brilliant, loving, and kind, like a little girl who’s been untouched by cruelty. But when that little girl is harmed, her hurt becomes pain, that pain becomes scars and those scars become the walls she builds to protect herself from harm. Negativity seeps in and she believes all kinds of ugly things about herself and in doing so, she learns how to mask the pain. This takes on many forms.

My name is Nadine Steele, founder of Steele Recovery and I have a desire to listen to your story. Your courage to speak your truth about yourself humbles and inspires me. I see so much strength in it that my passion and compassion are stirred from within and I have to hear more. Moreover, I am compelled to help.

Whether you mask your pain with pills, alcohol, denial, approval, toxic relationships, drugs, food, codependency, guilt, shame, the tears of a clown, or just trapped in your own negative thoughts, I know the way through and out because I am you. If you’re looking for a counselor,  with the heart of a teacher, whose purpose in life is to help you find yours, you’ve come to the right place.

Together, in the hands of God and a bit of willingness, we’ll discover what you’ve been looking for because you were

born on purpose, for a purpose
