Are you going through a divorce or separation? If you are, you have probably found navigating the custody and visitation landscape can be challenging. Keep in mind that managing conflict during this process is paramount. Many couples need help reducing emotional reactivity as they balance their own needs with the needs of the kids. It is also crucial that the therapist you employ understands the legal process, child development, and negotiation principles.
If you are looking for a co-parent counselor, don’t be afraid to interview more than one–a good fit is a must. Interviews in person or by phone by both parties are a positive, effective way to get an idea if the therapist can handle your particular situation. After you meet, you can still decide to change to someone else if it doesn’t seem like a fit.
My mediation and special master training with the Northern California Mediation Center in 1996 have provided a solid foundation for my work in this specialty. I have provided co-parent counseling on a regular basis since 1995, and I am happy to answer any questions you may have about me and the co-parent counseling process.
