"So far (early on), I have learned a couple of things, had a couple things I already knew emphasized in a new way, but the best part for me is seeing you actually respond to me personally. I mentioned to my son yesterday that I was taking this little program, and he was so pleased. He listened while i told him the things we touched on, the things I was learn..." Read more

"Barbara's boundary program is a life-saving approach. Learning how to Love Another Way and showing love and respect to a loved one in addiction has been so valuable. Setting boundaries and learning how to care for myself again has brought peace back into my life. If you struggle or feel so consumed by your loved one's addiction issues please help yourself an..."

"As a person in long-term recovery, I recognize the importance of family members, particularly parents, having a healthy, steady, recovery-oriented voice in their lives. That is why I recommend Barbara's program to the parents I work with. She started out on a mission to help other parents like her, and the commitment she has to sharing her experience, streng..."

"I know I have not been in this program very long, but I have managed to be so much happier that this isn’t my only thought all day long carrying it around on my shoulders. That I’m able to go out and enjoy myself and do things without thinking about this situation. So, thank you."
"My daughter's addiction threw me into a storm and I had no direction. Slowly, with Barbara's support, I started to find a path for ME! That path impacted my daughter to make changes for herself. Barbara has the tools for parents who are struggling, just like I did."

"Dear Barbara, Since I met you, in 2002, I have seen your evolution from a caring and concerned mother, and a successful business executive, to an effective and compassionate healer. I have great admiration and respect for you, your hard work, tenacity, and vision. With 40 years of practice of medicine, and 30 in psychiatry, I see your program as one of th..." Read more
"I am so proud that I took this step, researched what would work for me and found Barbara. I was a basket case, feeling all alone, lost, devastated..... now I’m hopeful! I’m much more peaceful because my son is slowly getting it, and I’m less stressed. I am excited because I can now set a strong boundary and feel confident about holding firm with it."
"I am very excited to have discovered that there is a process that really makes the boundary setting clear and I can use it whenever I need it. And I feel proud that I can stand up for myself and set boundaries clearly and stick to it. I am more confident that I have my own life, deserve my own happiness and it’s so important to take a step back and let my ch..." Read more
"I am excited about being able to wake up in the morning and the air is clear and I don’t have to plan my life around my addict. The peace and the quiet! I feel like my life is back and I am not so isolated and drowning in the addict’s chaos. I can even have company over. I am so grateful that Barbara created this! The isolation caused so much depression and..." Read more
"Barbara's program gave me a new perspective on my adult son's addiction and how to approach him. The resources she has gathered, from her experience with her own addicted son, and the statements she has compiled from addicts, former addicts and parents of addicts, are a gold mine of insights and inspiration. I now feel empowered to lead my son to choose re..." Read more
