About the Author

Elisa Hallerman, PhD, JD, is the CEO of the first-ever Recovery Management Agency (RMA). After graduating from New York Law School and passing the New York bar, Elisa relocated to the West Coast to take a shot at the entertainment business. Over the next decade she went from the talent agency mailroom to becoming partner and head of the talent department at United Talent Agency, later becoming a partner at William Morris Endeavor. Sober from drugs and alcohol for years, Elisa's interest in the recovery field drew her to take classes in drug and alcohol counseling at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2010. She soon realized her future career and purpose were in this field and began making preparations to leave the entertainment industry.

In 2011, Elisa created RMA, specializing in crisis management. In addition to her JD, Elisa holds a doctorate in Depth Psychology and Somatic Studies from Pacifica Graduate Institute, with a focus on neuroscience and trauma. She has studied Soul Psychology with renowned spiritual writer and psychotherapist Thomas Moore PhD, and is currently becoming certified as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, as developed by Peter Levine PhD. Elisa is a member of The Institute for Functional Medicine and was a visiting professor at Chapman University for film and media arts.


"In this vividly written, page-turner of a memoir, Dr. Elisa Hallerman depicts how neither drugs nor glittering Hollywood glamour could satisfy her spirit's longing for true freedom. With unsparing honesty, she chronicles her own soul's journey home to itself from the depths of trauma and addiction, now enabling her to guide many others on their own path to liberation."--Gabor Maté MD, author of The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness and Healing in a Toxic Culture
"Dr. Elisa Hallerman has written a fearless, inspiring memoir peppered with some of the most insightful, soul-filled recovery wisdom you'll ever encounter. We could all use a little Soulbriety!"--Rainn Wilson, author of Soul Pancake and Soul Boom
"Soulbriety is a must-read for anyone committed to their own recovery and the people who love them. Elisa beautifully combines her addiction expertise with her own personal story to inspire and guide the reader. As a leader in Recovery Management, she is the perfect guide for individuals and family members as they navigate the path to recovery."
--Gabby Bernstein, #1 New York Timesbestselling author of The Universe Has Your Back
"...the focus on the spiritual side of addiction is a welcome complement to more clinical approaches. [Soulbriety] offers some earnest guidance."--Publisher's Weekly
