PASSIONATE PARENT COACHES
Trina Faatz & Laura Bressler
We've been there...we can help.
Trina is an advocate for child welfare and family wholeness. Having been a volunteer school representative for the Parent Engagement Network (PEN) for 9 years, and on the Board of Directors for Voices for Children/CASA for 13 years, she now serves on the Board of Directors for Natural Highs, and is well versed in struggles and challenges facing youth and parents today. Three years ago, two of her close friends lost a child to an overdose, and Trina learned that her daughter (with Chronic Lyme Disease) also struggled with Substance and Opioid Use Disorder. Having navigated the system, treatment options, and intervention services, she and her daughter slowly created their own treatment module and recreated their family's relationships and trust. Trina went on to get certified as a Peer Recovery Coach to work with parents and teens struggling with the challenges of substance use. Now, as the facilitator of the Boulder County Substance Advisory Group, and leader of young people in recovery panels in the high schools, she brings a personal and humane approach to intervention and hope. .
Laura is also a mom of a young adult in recovery. After struggling for nearly 10 years, with numerous treatment approaches, her son found recovery, and is now pursuing a career as a Certified Addiction Counselor. Throughout their harrowing family ordeal, Laura and her husband learned what they could do as parents to positively impact their son's recovery. Becoming passionate about helping other families, Laura became a Registered Psychotherapist, a Certified Coach specializing in working with families struggling with substance abuse, and is pursuing her Master's in Addiction Studies in order to become a Licensed Addiction Counselor. She is a member of the Natural Highs team in Boulder, creating parent advocacy and substance use education groups. Laura is passionate to share C.R.A.F.T. with families seeking skills that work to impact their child's substance use and to repair family connections.
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking that they don’t have any.”
