      About Robin

      Robin Star’s passion is helping people 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 families and concerned loved ones to motivate the person 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 a loved one addicted to drugs or alcohol (Substance Use Disorder). Robin’s process fosters whole family recovery delivered with compassion and guidance. You do not have to go through this alone. Through progressive family coaching we focus on seeking answers the entire journey.

      She is the group facilitator for Parents of Addicted Children™, a support group founded in 1999 for parents who are experiencing on-going life problems due to their child’s (children of all ages) use of alcohol and/or drugs. Robin believes assisting the parents to help themselves is one of the most important single thing they can do to help their child.

      Robin is certified in Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training (CRAFT) as a Parent Network Coach, trained by the Center for Motivation and Change and works with the Partnership for Drug Free Kids. Robin provides pragmatic behavioral coaching, alternative and practical client centered solutions. She works privately with families and facilitates group learning on how to support a loved one before, during and after change.

      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 or individuals who are challenged with a loved one struggling with alcohol or drugs.

      A PATH FROM ADDICTION TO WHOLE FAMILY RECOVERY
      Through a Unique Coaching Practice

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

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

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

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

      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.”

      “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.”

      “Pessimism never won any battle.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

      Gordon Newfeld

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

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

      “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

      “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.”

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

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

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

      Maya Angelou

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

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

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

      Dalai Lama

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

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

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

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

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

      Maya Angelou

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

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

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

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

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

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

      “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.”

      “The past does not equal the future.”

      Piglet: “How do you spell love?”

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

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

      “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.”

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

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

      “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

      “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.”

      “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

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

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

      “One day can change everything…”

      “One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.”

      “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.”

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

      Maya Angelou

      “Let go of what I cannot control.”

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

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

      Mother Theresa

      “Worry is a choice.”

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

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

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

      Theodore Roosevelt

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

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

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

      “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

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

      e.h.

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

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

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

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

      “Celebrate what you want to see more of.”

      “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.”

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

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