Healing Hearts

A Community for Moms of Children Struggling with Addiction



Relieve Your Worry. Restore Your Peace.

Break Through Fear. Empower Your Love. 


No one does the hard stuff alone, at least not very well.  Healing Hearts is a compassionate community for mothers of children who struggle with addiction to have a healing place to grieve and take care of the worry, guilt, and regrets, the big emotions.  With that healing, you can learn and practice tools and methods to restore inner peace and love your child with essential skills that can create conditions to inspire change, re-connection, and improved communication. Joanne Richards guides and supports you through the hard stuff with expert coaching, meaningful discussion, and activities within a safe, supportive, and understanding community of other moms loving a child who struggles with substance use or addiction.  We share an intention to actively love our children through their addiction.  

Because loving a child through their addiction comes with worry, guilt, anger, confusion, grief, confusion and crises, it can feel isolating and overwhelming. Healing Hearts provides the power of group energy with a community of moms interested in peace and helping their child, along with a focus on your own healing, stress management, and learning skills to meet your child where they're at, as they are (yourself too!).    

* Transform your worry to peace
* Resolve your anger 
* Let go of guilt 
* Honor your own grief 
* Get unstuck
* Create a path forward that honors your child, life, and love
* Get support when and where you need it


"The worry and grief can be exhausting. But it doesn’t have to consume your days. With the right tools, techniques, and a holistic body, mind, and spirit approach you can find more peace in your own life so that you can  share it with your child too." – Joanne


Join Healing Hearts

Tough emotions can be transformative and guide you when met with understanding and support. Healing Hearts is not just about coping with grief; it’s about finding ways to transform stress and pain into a powerful experience of healing and connection. This program offers a compassionate space to address the grief and difficult emotions that comes with loving a child struggling with addiction.

"Grief is exhausting. There’s many layers to it and for very good reason. But it doesn’t have to consume your days. With the right tools, techniques, and a holistic approach you can find more peace in your own life and share that with your child." – Joanne

You Matter!


Healing is a journey, there is no time limit to how long your healing may take, and it may be the rest of your life as it co-exists with the whole spectrum of human emotions from joy to despair.  No one could guarantee that you'll never worry again.  You probably will and with very good reason.  That's why Healing Hearts provides a place that allows you to transform your stress and restore your peace and clarity on what you can do, what next  steps make sense for you in your unique circumstances.  In Healing Hearts you have the time, attention, and care so you can continue on your own healing path supporting you and your life, and be in a much better place to support your child. 

Healing Hearts gives you one place to heal, to get support, and to learn skills to meet the many needs of loving a child through their addiction.  In the community, you will have the uplifting and strengthening power of a group to practice with like minded people the various tools and methods you can use to restore your peace when you need it the most. In a community with other parents who understand and share your loving intention, you can care for you grief and big emotions like worry, guilt, and anger, the emotions you may not want to feel but you do, and the emotions that naturally arise during the tough times of loving a child struggling with addiction.  Isn't that why peace, love, kindness, and skills are so much more important? 

We must have reliable ways to make it through the tough times so we aren't unconsciously making them even tougher only because we just didn't know how to do it differently.  Healing Hearts gives you ways to tap into and trust your inner guidance to make it through the tough times and let love guide your choices, and your ability to use new and essential skills of loving a child through their addiction.

The Healing Path with Joanne

Facilitated by Joanne Richards, a Certified Family Recovery Coach, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a Certified Grief Educator and Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie, with Certification in The Invitation to Change, she integrates her 20 plus years of personal and professional experience including her experience as mom of a child who struggles with addiction and its complications. Joanne shares the most effective and powerful tools and methods that she's learned and practiced on her own personal healing journey to support others on their own paths. Joanne’s approach is deeply grounded in a foundation of compassion, empathy, faith, and practical, evidence-based strategies that promote healing and self-empowerment.

"There is no greater love than between a mother and child; but when your child struggles with substance use, that love can get shadowed by fear, confusion, and pain. The grief:  including worry, guilt, resentments and so many big emotions, can be overwhelming. That’s why it needs specialized care. When you relieve your fears and worries, you clear the path to develop other approaches and skills to fulfill your greatest purpose - to be love and to show up as love - connected, calm, more confident, and communicating the love you so want to share with your child. " – Joanne

Join Healing Hearts Now and Transform the Relationship with Your Child.

If you're like thousands of other moms, I bet you can sometimes feel stuck in worry, guilt, anger and grief when you don't know how or where your child is.  Do you worry if any day could be "the" day, feel distraught when you see them alive but disappearing before your eyes, or don't see them at all?   I've said yes to all those questions.  It's agony. It's an experience that shatters life as you knew it and want it.

Let's not forget these thoughts:  "I can't do this anymore."  "Nothing is working."  "I'm losing them."  "I'm just waiting for the call."

This is why Healing Hearts is for you. This is the call like no other call, a call for you to not just cope and talk about the latest crisis and worry, and stay worried.  It's a call to build resilience and empower your love when you know how to transform the worries into clarity, the grief into compassionate caring for all parts of you and not trying to avoid or hide it, to move from anger into forgiveness, and guilt into personal freedom. We connect with your soul's wisdom of what you need when you re-member and re-connect with what is true for you using methods that get you there.

Healing Hearts is calling you to say yes and give you as many tools as possible so you know how to care for your worry, guilt, anger, all the big and difficult emotions that are hard to feel, so that you can experience deep relief, learn stress management strategies that work, and also learn new skills that are essential to loving and caring for your child through their addiction.

When you give it to you, you give it to your child too.  Your energy and tone, your whole being changes.  It's the kind of change you need, and they need it too. It starts with one.  Tag, you're it.  Love Wins Here!
