Divorce and separation can make parenting a child together a challenging task. Conflict can easily arise from differing opinions, parenting styles, and residual anger from the marital conflicts. If you find that you and the other parent have difficulty agreeing on decisions for your child, you and your coparent may be candidates for coparenting counseling.
Coparenting counseling focuses on improving the communication between separated or divorced parents. Some of the goals of coparenting counseling are to develop a healthy communication system between the parents, as well as establish a method to effectively solve conflicts into the future. Coparenting counseling is focused on moving forward, rather than dwelling on the past. The best interest of the child is always the paramount concern.
If coparenting counseling has been ordered by a court, we will work with you and your ex-partner to bring the level of conflict back down to a workable level.
