Can you imagine waking up rested because you slept all night and then realizing you have peace of mind and happiness for the first time since your childs substance abuse started?
You have what it takes to make this change in your life.
When you open your eyes in the morning after a restless night with little sleep and your first thought is your child, do you feel a knot in your stomach and dread in your chest because you have to face another day of their substance abuse?
Do you then spend your days so worried about them and distracted by what is happening in their life that you are barely functioning?
It’s no way to live your life!
You are not alone.
I’m Heather Ross and I am a certified life coach. Take a deep breath and let out a huge sigh of relief because I’ve got you.
I know you have tried everything you can think of to help your child, but nothing is working, or you wouldn’t be here reading this.
I know the daily life of a mother whose teen abuses substances.
I have felt the same pain you do.
I spent the first few years of my daughter’s substance abuse in a state of complete overwhelm, denial, guilt, and shame.
Nothing I tried worked for her. Each day I felt like I lost a little more of myself.
I felt like a failure. We are supposed to be able to help our kids, right?
One of the most important things I realized was that the best way to help my daughter was to help myself.
I left my successful career in the accounting world as a controller so I could focus on helping myself.
I started looking for the tools I needed to heal my life.
I found those tools with a life coach.
I learned that even though I was experiencing sadness about my daughter, I could also feel happiness and enjoy life again.
I stopped letting life happen to me and started directing my life again!
I couldn’t wait to start sharing what I learned with other mothers.
I don’t want any mother to experience the pain that I did for any longer than they have to.
The mothers I work with come to me because they are mentally and emotionally exhausted, consumed with their childs substance abuse, and feel like they have no control of their lives.
We can work together one on one to help you reclaim control of your life whether your child is sober or still abusing substances.
