Debbie Cossi
Parent Coach

Debbie Cossi family coach

With over 28 years of experience working directly with children and their families, I have seen it all. 

We are all well meaning parents who love our children and who could sometimes use a little support and guidance on how to maneuver the day to day. 

I have struggled with my own kids when they were young, sometimes closing myself in another room just to cry. 

Parenting is tough and it doesn't come with a manual. When you add all of our outside responsibilities like housekeeping, going to our jobs, spending time with our spouse, grocery shopping etc. etc. it can become overwhelming. 

Parents want to lead with love. I will work with you to support and encourage you as you begin to implement new strategies and techniques to bring peace back into your home. 

We will work as a team to find solutions that work for your family.  

Let's get started!

What is Family Coaching?

Family Coaching is a personalized and tailored support that helps families identify and address areas of concern within their family. 

Coaching assists the parents in creating a parenting plan of strategies to change unwanted behaviors and replace them with positive solutions. 

What is your Coaching Philosophy?

I use a no nonsense, POSITIVE PARENTING approach to parenting and coaching.  

I believe in working with your child's intrinsic need for belonging and significance.

I want everyone in the family to feel empowered and positive on this journey. 

Is Family Coaching similar to therapy or counseling?

No, coaching is not similar to therapy or counseling and does not diagnose or treat a mental disorder or medical disease. 

My role is to provide you with the support and empower you to implement new strategies in your home. We will work as a team to find positive solutions for your family. 

Therapy may focus more on dealing with issues and challenges from your past and how these impact your current state of mind. 

Parent coaching is goal directed focuses on helping you become the parent you want to be for your family. 

If during our conversations I feel you or a family member is in need of services out of my realm of expertise, I will encourage you to seek help from the appropriate professional. 

Do you offer a guarantee with your services?

Yes, and no. 

Yes, I guarantee exceptional service and support to help empower you to make the changes you desire for peace in your home. 

No, I cannot completely guarantee that all family members will make the changes needed for success. That will be completely up to YOU.

As humans we are complex beings. Emotions and distractions can sometimes get in the way of our success. You must have the desire to put new practices into place. 

I will of course do what I can to guide you in the right direction but YOU have to be fully committed for this process to be successful. 

Do you accept insurance?

No. Since coaching is not considered treatment, it is not covered by health insurance.

Do both parents need to be present?

No. While it is great to have both parents be involved it is not a requirement. The sessions can include anyone who would like to grow in their parenting skills. This can be one or both parents, a single parent, grandparents and caregivers.

What Clients Are Saying 

Jordan Bentley, St Helena

My husband and I really love working with Debbie. Her wisdom, experience and professional insight has been invaluable to our family. Debbie is very kind, and non-judgmental. She works to understand all angles of an issue and then works with you to create balance and restore harmony within the family dynamic so both parents and kids can thrive. What I love most is that she showed us how to make little tweaks to our family routine that made big positive impacts quickly. Thank you Debbie!


Amy Beaudine, St Helena 

Ms. Debbie Cossi has been working miracles with our family. If any of you moms and dads out there need support with challenging children I can’t recommend anyone more—total game changer. Debbie works wonders and is there for me day (and nights actually) whenever my mommy heart is breaking from frustration. She coaches on zoom and has been the most supportive, informative, generous and authentic person (I’ve needed more than I knew) to help me with Beau, and ultimately our whole family. I am no longer yelling at my son, my whole perspective has changed and I want all of you to join her brilliant forces!! Send her a message. We are not islands, we need people, and our children need us to have people too."

Erin, St Helena

"Every new parent, no matter how helpful their family might be, or how many books they’ve read, none of us come equipped with the deep reserves of experience that someone who is a true authority possesses. Debbie is that authority, and she has seen it all. Her coaching and guidance comes from a place of care, compassion, and from a clear vantage point. Parents struggle with weaning, with temper tantrums, toilet training and sleep issues, and often we are facing these issues while battling sleepless nights. Tear-filled struggles. Guilt for being late to work because of a particularly trying morning. Worry that we are not measuring up as parents. Debbie has a clear, judgement-free perspective, and can help you develop a plan based on what works, when you might be too overwhelmed to see the path clearly yourself. They say it takes 10,000 hours to master a subject or a field of knowledge. Debbie passed that milestone at least a decade ago, I am sure! Her guidance and steady, warm friendship and support was everything to our young family in our two boys’ earliest years."


S.S, St Helena

"Debbie was a huge support to me. She provided valuable advice and recommendations for parenting while never making me feel judged. We remain friends to this day and I'm so thankful for all that she provided for our family. "


Amy, Napa

"Debbie has a gift for establishing productive routines . We will always be grateful for Debbie helping us navigate our early parenting years with our children who are now all grown up and thriving. "

Mary-Robb, Wisconsin

"As parents, we value her years of professional experience. She became a trusted resource for parenting advice and support. Her family coaching services are invaluable to her clients. "


Elizabeth, North Carolina

"Debbie was our partner in navigating a multitude of childhood milestones, and she did the same for every family with whom she worked, deftly managing each family's unique culture. Debbie was the wise, calm, surefooted older sister I never had, always ready with a sympathetic ear and measured advice. She is simply the best "
