Even the most reasonable parents are under an incredible amount of stress during a separation or divorce.
Conversations between parents can become volatile quickly, even when they are simply trying to communicate about the children’s needs or make decisions related to school, extracurricular activities or when/how to introduce their kids to new romantic partners. Having a safe place and a safe person to mediate discussions can be helpful.
At Nurture House, we will encourage each parent to have a voice in the decision-making process while helping parents remain aware of themselves and communicate in ways that are most effective for collaboration and joint decision-making. In order for co-parent work to be safe for all involved, the ground rules laid in the first co-parent session must be adhered to by both parties or the therapist may ask one parent to leave or end the session early. In such an event, the full fee for the session is still required.
