Shifting from parenting under the same roof to separated or divorced parents can be tough for everyone involved. There is no cookie-cutter plan that works for every family. The goal of co-parenting is not to “work” on the dissolved relationship, but to create plans that works for you and your ex to be parents to your children in two different households. Having a neutral third party to support your family and put your children’s needs first can make a big difference and can peacefully resolve issues.
I am able to help families enter “business relationships” and de-escalate hurt feelings and emotional reactions. I create a safe place to discuss issues that may cause you and your ex-partner stress such as topics related to: parenting schedules, holidays/vacation schedules, consistent rules and discipline, positive communication, new partners, extend family relationships or Parallel Parenting agreements.
I get it:
- Your ex is the last person in the world you want to sit in a room with.
- You are worried about the impact of your divorce on your children.
- You are unsure how to deal with new partners and interactions with your children
- You are worried about holidays, birthdays, vacations, school schedules and extra-curricular activities.
- You want to put your hurt feelings aside and find a plan that works for you and your children.
