Support for families of addicts - Bridge

Helping mothers whose adult children are addicted to alcohol and drugs take care of themselves and give their loved ones a better chance at recovery.

Committing myself to Mary Ann’s coaching program was life changing.

Letting go isn't putting up a wall. It's building a bridge.

How I Can Help

How I Help Parents of Adult Addicted Children

Has your child's addiction taken over your life? Are you consumed by fear and worry? Not sure where to turn? As a certified professional coach, I will help you explore how to:

  • Let go of control while staying close 


  • Support sobriety, not addiction


  • Set healthy boundaries

  • Communicate effectively​

  • Most important of all, take care of yourself


Let your child know you love him or her, even when they are not very lovable. Alcohol and drug addiction are progressive diseases but you can make a difference. There is always hope.

My Story

My Story - Loving My Son Through His Addiction

As a certified professional coach, I partner with my clients as someone who has walked in their shoes to help them learn what I learned along the way. I encourage parents to look within themselves to find ways to let go, to support sobriety—not addiction, to stop the madness in their own lives and to make choices that are uniquely right for them. Coaching is a goal-oriented, solution-focused approach to making change happen.

I am the grateful mother of a sober son. While I know a guarantee card stating he will stay sober for life doesn’t come with each sober chip he earns, I remain hopeful that the sober days, months and years will continue to string together. Miracles happen and he is my miracle. Read more...
