Whether you had an amicable divorce or a difficult one, parenting with an ex is going to take intentional thought and a well-crafted plan. Despite the age of your child(ren) they will have feelings about the divorce. Deciding how and what to tell them, how to help them with their feelings (without yours getting in the way), and dealing with all the logistics are necessary for the best long and short-term outcomes. I’ve found that divorced couples are often surprised and overwhelmed by the plethora of unanticipated issues that arise.
As a divorce coach, my role is to help you consider all of these issues and provide co-parenting support. With my experiences as an adoption counselor, certified Gottman Educator for their Bringing Baby Home program, and child law advocate, I have a unique perspective on children’s developmental needs. I can work with you (or you and your ex together) to help make this transition the smoothest possible. You don’t need to do this alone – let me help you through the process.
