Couples counseling provides services to two people who are in a relationship. Marital counseling, pre-marital counseling, and co-parenting counseling, all fall under the umbrella of couples counseling.
Pre-marital counseling prepares a couple by discussing and planning for critical moments in a marriage. There is a strong focus on building communication skills. Topics of discussion may include financial planning, family planning, religion/spiritual practices, and or conflict management techniques.
Co-parenting counseling provides parents and/or guardians with collaborative parenting strategies that facilitate a positive upbringing for the children involved. This includes unmarried parents who are no longer in a relationship, separated or divorced parents, or grandparents, foster parents, or aunts/uncles who have custody of children and are trying to co-parent with biological parents.
Can you help with court-ordered co-parenting counseling?
I can provide services for court-ordered co-parenting counseling. However, it is important to identify if you were ordered to attend mediation or counseling. If you were ordered to attend mediation, likely that the court requires the utilization of a court-approved mediator. You can usually find a list on the county court’s website. Contact me if you need help determining if you need to attend mediation or counseling.
