About Robin

Robin Star’s passion is helping parents navigate the world of addiction and substance abuse. In her private practice she uses a science based program backed by 40 years of clinical research. Robin’s coaching uses these evidence based methods to empower parents to motivate their child who struggles with alcohol or drug abuse to seek treatment. On an individual or family basis she provides tools needed to traverse the challenges of coping with children addicted to drugs or alcohol (Substance Use Disorder).

Robin is a graduate of the University of Denver with a BS/BA, and is a Gestalt Professional Certified Coach with a specialty in coaching families with children struggling with alcohol or drugs.

“Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.”

“Until you realize you are the creator of your own misery you will never be truly happy. For it is how you react to any given situation that brings you happiness.”

“Treat others with kindness. You never know what burdens people bear or what they are going through. You may have power to lift their spirits or break them.”

Sometimes we get angry with people, when we should be angry with ourselves, because we gave them the power to change our mood and feelings.”

“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms…let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”

“Living Life fully means not waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance between the raindrops”

“You don’t need a plan, sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens.”

“Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, let go of what you can’t change.”

“You never know how STRONG you are until being STRONG is the only choice you have.”

“The past does not equal the future.”

“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by how we react to what happens. Not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.”

“Worry doesn’t take away the pain of tomorrow, but sucks the happiness and joy for today.”

“Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you’ll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.”

“Don’t keep taking the same road, expecting it to get you somewhere else.”

“Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive about what could go right.”

“Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you anywhere.”

“If you stumble, make it part of the dance!”

“Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.”

Dalai Lama

“Sometimes people with the worst pasts end up creating the best futures.”

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better do better.”

Maya Angelou

“You can’t force someone to respect you, but you can refuse to be disrespected.”

“Don’t judge a situation you have never been in.”

“I am committed to own my own problems and let others own theirs.”

“To let go is to fear less and to love more. To let go is not to care for, but to care about.”

“Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amidst the storm.”

“Worry is a choice.”

“My worst fears can come true, whether I anguish over them or not.”

“One of the happiest moments ever is when you find the courage to let go of what you can’t change.”

“It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves, that will make them successful human beings.”

Ann Landers
“Transform sorrow into strength, pain into growth and fear into trust.”

“We don’t have control over the actions of others. We do have control over how we allow their actions to affect us.”

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Maya Angelou

“We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.”

Ego says: “Once everything falls into place, I will find peace.”
Spirit says: “Find peace and everything will fall into place.”

“Celebrate what you want to see more of.”

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude about it.”

Maya Angelou

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

Maya Angelou

“Every child is gifted. They just unwrap their packages at different times.”

“So, for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself everything happens for a reason.”

“May your choices reflect your hopes and not your fears!”

“Sometimes we’re tested. Not to show our weaknesses, but to discover our strengths.”

“Promise me you’ll always remember that you’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”

Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh

“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy. I think I will be happy today!”

“Worry is a total waste of time. It doesn’t change anything. All it does is steal your joy and keeps you very busy doing nothing.”

“Forgive them even if they are not sorry. Holding on to anger only hurts you, not them.”

“One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.”
“Pessimism never won any battle.”

“At some point you just have to let go of what you thought should happen and live in what is happening.”

“Sometimes we need someone to simply be there…Not to fix anything in particular, but just to let us feel we are supported and cared about.”

“Love isn’t a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.”

Fred Rogers

“Strength is when you have so much to cry for, but you choose to smile instead.”

“What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?”

e.h.

“When life changes to be harder, change yourself to be stronger.”

“Don’t expect anyone to understand your journey, especially if they’ve never walked your path.”

“Storms in your life can be followed by rainbows.”

“Let go of what I cannot control.”

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

Mother Theresa

“When someone is trying to change their ways, the worst thing you can do is keep bringing up the past.”

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

Theodore Roosevelt

“It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.”

“One day can change everything…”

“We must let go of the life we had planned so at to have the life that is waiting for us.”

“We liberate children not by making them work for our love, but by letting them rest in it.”

Gordon Newfeld

Piglet: “How do you spell love?”

Pooh: “You don’t spell it, you feel it.”

“Be selective in your battles, sometimes peace is better than being right.”

“Don’t expect everyone to understand your journey, especially if they’ve never had to walk your path.”

“Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness yet become something beautiful.”

“One of the hardest decisions you’ll ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder.”

“One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. Whether its guilt, anger, love, loss or betrayal. Change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go.”

“Just because something is not happening for you right now does not mean that it will never happen.”
