I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Cathy as a coach for families with substance use issues. She knows the terrain and delivers her wisdom with compassion and clarity.

Cathy is the real deal. She is kind and understanding while delivering the necessary steps to better communicate with your loved one… and therefore helping them in a more constructive way. Most importantly Cathy is always there when you need her often at a moment’s notice. She is always able to offer a hopeful helping hand and a soothing balm to the heart.

Carol, Mom from Massachusetts

Cathy understands what parents go through when their child is abusing drugs or alcohol. I highly recommend her as a Recovery Coach for parents – it’s an unsettling situation for any parent and Cathy’s warm and relaxed style can help parents feel more in control and make better decisions for their child and for themselves.

Linda, Mom from California

 I had several coaching sessions with Cathy about my sons who struggle with addiction. She was very prompt to be there when I called and gave me very educated advice from experience that helped me so very much. Having Cathy to talk to helped our family. I highly recommend her coaching for parents and families.

In RISE UP Moms, you will receive weekly tips and inspirations and have access to a private forum. You will have two monthly conference calls where we will discuss the topic of the month and give you a chance to voice your concerns about your family’s situation.

Not only is this is for moms of kids who are struggling with drugs or alcohol, but also for those who want to stop feeling helpless, anxious, and worried so they can feel in control and get their life back on track.

Support Club

Joining this group and getting on the calls have been so helpful. I always feel better about my daughter and our relationship afterward. One of the main things I get out of the calls is that I’m reminded to voice more positive sentiments to her and I have reminded myself about her progress and the things I like about her. It seems to have an effect on her if I give her positive feedback or compliments. It’s easy to forget to do when you think they should be doing so much more at their age.

I went to a few Al-Anon meetings but was not comfortable with their strict rules. I prefer to hear from people if they have a thought to share about something I’ve said and vice versa.

I would recommend this group to anyone, it’s a great group of friendly and supportive women.

ANN, a mom from New York 

Cathy gently lead our parent group in a guided process of individual sharing and listening to one another.  Guided by the month’s theme and through a series of insightful questions from Cathy, we were encouraged to respond one by one, voluntarily.  Through this process, we came to a broader sense of our shared situations, and a sense of a personal path forward.  Cathy’s optimism infused the meeting with a sense of hope.

7 Things Parents Can Say When Their Child is Struggling with Drugs or Alcohol

Their kids have made a major detour because of their drug and alcohol use. They may be struggling to get their life back on track. Likewise, they could be still in the midst of their drug use.

Parents so often hope that they will say the golden words that will make a difference.[…] Read More
