Taking tough love advice and waiting for my daughter to
hit rock bottom only caused us both more harm.

Then I found a book with helpful information, but I still struggled
to implement what I learned and connect with my daughter.

What finally worked for me was a combination of CRAFT, coaching,
and help implementing what I was learning.

CRAFT or Community Reinforcement And Family Training
teaches family members how to stay connected, increase communication,
and effectively encourage their loved one towards treatment
while taking care of themselves in the process.

Through learning CRAFT and having a coach I was able to:
1. Reconnect with my daughter
2. Create my own Peace of Mind
3. Feel proud of myself as a mom

Meet Your Coach Heather Ross

Your child’s addiction changes your life in ways you never could have imagined.  Heather is no different.

Her daughter Helanna’s addiction led her to pivot out of her career and create the Peace of Mind coaching program and Living with Your Child’s Addiction podcast to provide other parents with the compassionate support and tools she wished she had.

The conventional “tough love” methods Heather initially used, thinking she was helping her daughter, left them both feeling hopeless and disconnected. Driven by an unwavering love for her daughter, Heather stopped taking “tough love” advice and forged a path rooted in compassion and in alignment with her values as a mother.

Heather not only repaired but strengthened her fractured relationship with her daughter, ultimately enabling her to support Helanna’s recovery journey. Their story took a tragic turn when she experienced a reoccurrence of use and passed away from an overdose.

Heather’s devastation fueled her passion to help more parents because she believes the best gift a parent can give a child is an emotionally healthy parent.

When Heather is not helping parents through one-on-one or group coaching, she enjoys spending time in nature with her dogs, going to sound baths, traveling, and creating lasting memories with family and friends.

Heather’s training includes:

  • Mom – On the job training/lived experience
  • Family Recovery Coach
  • Invitation to Change Certified
  • CRAFT trained (Community Reinforcement and Family Training)

Monthly Schedule

 It’s OK if you can’t make a call live.  You can listen to a voice recording of missed calls.

Frequently Asked Questions

There will be 8 calls per month and a monthly call schedule will be provided.

All calls take place on Zoom. To protect everyone’s privacy the audio  (no video) will be recorded and sent to you if you miss a call. You will have 3 weeks to listen to the audio of the call.  After that, the audio will be deleted.

You get immediate access to the program when you sign up!

You don’t have to attend every call to make big changes in your life. With 8 live coaching calls to choose from each month, you get to pick which calls you attend. Calls will be recorded for you to listen to at your convenience. 

You will also benefit from the audio replays of the calls, the written program, and interaction in the private Facebook group. 

Yes, you can. At the beginning of each call, I invite group members to indicate they want coaching. If you express interest, you’ll receive personalized 1:1 coaching tailored to your needs.

The Peace of Mind program was created by Heather and is  different material than ITC.  Heather doesn’t coach or help group members work through specific issues in the ITC group.

With personalized coaching, you get the opportunity for deeper understanding and help implementing the skills you learn.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon are designed only to support you. They are not designed to help you help your child.  You can use the science-based education and skills you learn from the Peace of Mind program in addition to attending meetings.

5  Adnvantages of Group Coaching:

  1. Shared Learning and Insights: Group coaching allows participants to learn from each other’s experiences and perspectives. Different group members may offer diverse insights, strategies, and solutions, enriching the learning process.
  2. Supportive Community: Being part of a group creates a sense of community and support. Participants can connect with others who share similar goals and challenges, fostering a supportive environment for growth and development.
  3. Improved Learning Through Observation: In a group coaching setting, individuals can observe others without emotional involvement or attachment. This enables them to learn by actively watching how fellow participants navigate challenges, implement strategies, and receive coaching. By witnessing the coaching process unfold for others, individuals can introspect and ask themselves how they can adapt and apply those insights to their own lives. This observational learning fosters a broader perspective and encourages the application of coaching principles beyond the immediate context, enhancing personal growth and development.
  4. Accountability and Motivation: Group dynamics can provide additional motivation and accountability. Seeing other group members progress and achieve their goals can inspire and encourage individuals to stay committed to their own goals.
  5. Cost-Effective: Group coaching costs less than 1:1 coaching. This affordability makes it more accessible.

You can ask Heather questions via email or seek support from her or  from other parents in the private Peace of Mind Facebook Group. The private group is there so you can take advantage of the community with other parents who have a child struggling with substances as well.

You can also try self-reflection and journaling to explore your thoughts, feelings, and any obstacles you’re encountering. Writing down your concerns and exploring possible solutions on your own can provide valuable insights and clarity. It can also help you identify specific questions or areas where you need additional support, which you can then address during the next group coaching session.

The Facebook group is only for members of the Peace of Mind Group coaching program. It is an exclusive community where you will connect with other parents who not only understand you but have similar beliefs about helping a child who is struggling with substances. 

Group coaching brings a group of parents together who have the common goals of personal growth and learning new skills to help their child who struggles with substances.  As a member of the group, you will learn from the written Peace of Mind program which serves as a comprehensive guide to self-discovery and growth along with live group coaching calls led by Heather Ross on Zoom.

The calls serve as a key educational and experiential component of the program. Participants can ask questions, get coached in a non-judgmental supportive space, and learn from fellow group members as they watch them get coached. The calls offer a unique blend of structure and flexibility tailored to meet the needs of the collective.

Therapy and coaching are both valuable resources and complement each other.  Many people choose to do both as a holistic approach to change and growth.

Coaching is a collaborative, forward-moving process that illuminates your path to new possibilities, equips you with essential skills, and empowers you to set and achieve meaningful goals. By engaging in coaching, you unlock your potential to navigate your current circumstances with confidence and success.

As your dedicated coach, Heather creates a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore the depths of your own mind. With genuine care and unwavering support, she guides your transformative journey using open-ended questions, reflective statements, active listening, and unconditional presence. Heather is committed to your growth, providing the encouragement and honesty needed to identify and overcome the obstacles standing in the way of your desired outcomes.

The membership is recurring month to month and you can cancel at any time.

You don’t have to give notice you just have to cancel before you’re charged for the next month.

When you register for the program your receipt has a link to cancel your program.  You will also receive a notification 5 days before your membership renews each month.  That email has a link to cancel as well. 

While I don’t coach specifically on co-occurring disorders, the skills and strategies I teach are broadly applicable and can help you, even if your child faces other challenges.
