Co-parenting with an ex spouse or partner can be one of the most difficult and challenging relationships you may ever have. Is there a parenting plan in pace, but the plan is not being followed? Do you need professional help communicating or addressing co-parenting issues with your ex? Have you been court ordered co-parenting counseling?
As a qualified parenting coordinator, I have received extensive training in all matters of co-parenting after divorce. Even if you have not been court ordered to use a parenting coordinator, co-parenting counseling can be beneficial to help with problems in a co-parenting relationship.
Children are often the first to suffer from the aftereffects of a divorce or separation. They can experience on-going anxiety and stress if the co-parenting relationship becomes adversarial. As children reach different developmental milestones, this impact might be seen in different ways such as temper tantrums, regression, avoidance, anger, communication issues, or other setbacks. As a co-parenting counselor, I have a background in conflict resolution and child development issues that are specifically related to divorce and blended family dynamics.
Co-parenting and family counseling is not just for the biological parents. It can incorporate all members of child’s support system. This might include grand parents, teachers, or other family relatives that are an important part of the child(rens) life.
If you or someone you know is looking for a more peaceful alternative over court and trial to resolve co-parenting issues, please contact me today for an appointment.
