I started working with Sue DeCaro at a time when I was just beginning my spiritual exploration of my approach to parenting – specifically after reading two books by Dr. Shefali Tsabary; Conscious Parenting, and The Awakened Family. Our two children were in high school at the time, and I was uncomfortable with how I approached my relationship with them, and was unsure how to deepen my relationship with either of them. I began meeting with Sue regularly and over that time I learned much about myself, my own parents, my spouse, and my children. Developing a greater understanding of my reaction to what I perceive as my strengths and weaknesses, Sue’s suggestions have inspired me to extend myself to my children in a more selfless, productive way, which I have discovered to be very meaningful. She has also helped me develop a stronger understanding of myself. One thing that I have begun doing at her suggestion is sending encouraging text messages to each of the kids without an expectation of a response from either. At first, only my daughter responded, but in time, my son also began responding positively on his own, which was very surprising.
Over the past few years, with Sue’s help, I have developed a much more meaningful connection with both of my children – and it’s not just my opinion! Both of them have confirmed that – on separate occasions! I really look forward to my appointments with Sue – spending time focused on what’s happening in my spirit, and what I can learn from it, has brought me much happiness and peace as a mother, daughter, wife and woman in general.
Since working with Sue, our son has graduated from college, is working full-time in his desired field, and has a strong connection to me, his father, and our extended family members. Our daughter is a college sophomore, pursuing her degree of choice, with a strong personal direction teeming with self-confidence. My own relationships with my children, my living parent, my siblings, spouse and friends have been significantly and positively impacted by Susan. I am tremendously grateful to her for the coaching and her help, and highly recommend her as a teacher and coach. I have become a much more effective and self-inquisitive person with Sue’s advice, and I look forward to even more impactful realizations!
With the deepest appreciation.
