Trina Faatz & Laura Bressler
We've been there...we can help.

                                Trina is a tireless advocate for child welfare, addiction recovery and prevention and family                                     wholeness. As a Certified Peer and Family Specialist and Parent Peer Recovery Coach,

                               she  has worked with over 400 families in assisting them with coaching, resources                                                    and psychoeducation on  substance use and opioid use disorder. Her expertise lies in family                                  and parent coaching and community engagement and organizing. She also is a Certified                                     Acudetox Specialist and holds a Master's Degree from the University of Northern Colorado.  Having been a school  representative for the Parent Engagement Network (PEN) for 9 years, she now works closely with them bringing student and parent education on substance misuse and drug education in classrooms and public forums. She also serves on the Board of  Directors for Voices for Children/CASA for 13 years, and presently served on the Board of Directors of Natural Highs for 6 years, the teen program of alternative and healthy lifestyle choices based in Boulder County and offering acudetox as a healing modality.


Trina is passionate about and is well versed in the struggles and challenges facing youth and  parents today.

Her own daughter struggled with Substance and Opioid Use Disorder as did several of her friends' teens. Having navigated the  system, treatment options, and intervention services, she and her daughter slowly created their own treatment module and rebuilt their family's relationships and trust.  Trina embraces her lived experience and credentials in working with parents and teens struggling with the challenges of substance use.  Now, as the facilitator of the Boulder County Substance Use Advisory Group for Boulder County, she  also founded and directs, with her daughter in recovery, the classroom program Youth in Recovery, an educational forum of young adult panelists bringing the voices of recovery, addiction and facts regarding street drugs and fentanyl to high school audiences. Youth in Recovery and Trina won the 2022 CO Youth Mental Health award at the State of the State Conference! Both of these community based advocacy and educational programs bring a personal and humane approach to intervention and hope.           



                             Laura is a mom of an adult son in recovery. After struggling for many years, with                                                       numerous treatment approaches, her son found long-term recovery, and is now running                                         a successful sober adventure travel business. Throughout their harrowing family ordeal,                                         Laura and her husband learned what they could do differently as parents to positively                                             impact and support their son's recovery. Throughout their recovery journey with their son,                                     and wishing she could find more support for themselves, she become passionate about becoming that person to help other families and has now been providing those services to concerned parents for over 10 years. Laura earned her Master's in Addiction Studies and completed the Certified Addiction Counseling training through the state of Colorado to become a Licensed Addiction Counselor, and is a Certified Parent Coach. She specializes in working with parents struggling with their child's substance abuse and often co-occurring mental health concerns. She is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP)  and a Master's level trained Brainspotting trauma therapist, and uses trauma therapy to help individuals process and heal from traumas impacting their lives and parenting. She is also a Certified Acudetox Specialist, employing the 5-point ear acupuncture protocol to assist in resolving trauma and to support mental and physical health.


In her private practice, Laura's services range from psychoeducation related to substance use, mental health, trauma, and referring to appropriate treatment;  support for parents to develop skills and approaches that can impact a child's recovery; facilitating an understanding and healing of family dynamics and relationships; and trauma therapy to resolve the emotional impact of a loved one's addiction on the parent. She serves on the Board of Directors of Natural Highs in Boulder, and as a member of their team in the community, supporting parent advocacy and substance use/mental health education groups. Laura is passionate about sharing C.R.A.F.T. with families in both groups and in private coaching/counseling sessions.
