Co-parenting, when you are divorced or separated, can be challenging. I offer therapy targeted towards improving you and your ex's ability to manage this succesfully.
Therapy is best done with both parents in the room, but can be done with each of you individually if this is what is really needed.
Co-parenting counseling is targeted towards improving the parenting relationship and at setting clear boundaries between ex-partners so that you can optimize the quality of your children's lives with regards to the parenting provided.
Please be aware that it is a breach of ethics to provide a forensic evaluation for custody purposes, if you have entered therapy for couple counseling or for co-parenting when you are divorced or separated. The goal of therapy is to improve the co-parenting relationship and parenting skills, not to make an assessment of the family's custody arrangement. The following excerpt is from the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy Ethical Code:
3.14 Separation of Custody Evaluation from Therapy. To
avoid a conflict of interest, marriage and family therapists
who treat minors or adults involved in custody or visitation
actions may not also perform forensic evaluations for custody,
residence, or visitation of the minor.
