Ever think you should go to an expert who’ll fix everything for you? Ever think you should be able to Do-It-Yourself without needing help from anyone? Our culture tends to go towards either of these extremes. Here at ParentCoaching.org we are bridges between the two extremes of going to an expert to “get fixed” and DIY. We can’t do the work of creating an awesome family for you, but we help you have more success with less effort. We help you trust and listen to yourself. We are guides and fellow travelers who delight in helping you find your way into healthier, more respectful, and more enjoyable relationships with your children and your self.

Tosca Devito – Cranial-sacral therapist and parent coach delights in helping parents and children connect their minds, bodies, and emotions for more complete healing and integration. Experiences tend to hang out in our bodies. Tosca understands the language of the body and can help decode it for you. She uses the wisdom of the body to make the connection to the mind and heart. Using tools such as mindfulness meditation and neurological integration, Tosca invites parents to get to the root of what they want and establish long term goals that help get them there and beyond.

Philosophy: When we connect empathetically with a parent, it creates space and awareness in her (or him). Once you as a parent connect with your own feelings, needs, and strategies then you are in a much better place to respond with compassion and clear boundaries to your child(ren). When you come from your own core knowing and grounded beliefs, you are more effective, flexible, strong, and resilient with your children. There is nothing that teaches these skills to children better than seeing them modeled by their parents. Working with me as your parent coach can help you achieve this and more.
Mission: To foster respectful, connected relationships between parents and children through supporting parents in understanding their own and their children’s feelings, needs, motivations, and strategies.
- All humans have needs. Everything we do, we do out of a desire to meet our basic need.
- All humans have feelings. Feelings are neither good nor bad, although some are more pleasant to experience than others. Feelings are doorways into deeper connection with ourselves and our children.
- All humans have strategies we use to attempt to get our needs met. These strategies are often tragically ineffective.
- All humans are basically good. Children and adults are both humans.
The following 8 and a half minute audio is a guided meditation to help you begin the process of connecting with the compassionate and empathetic energy within you. Once you connect with the compassionate energy within you, healing and change are more easily accessible. Enjoy!
