Co-Parenting Coach

I serve as a Co-Parenting Coach within both the Traditional and Collaborative Models of Divorce. A Co-Parenting Coach helps parents to craft a durable, equitable Co-Parenting Plan that takes into account the needs and wishes of the children. A successful Co-Parenting Plan allows the dysfunctional divorcing couple to transform into an effective Co-parenting Partnership that safeguards and promotes healthy development and the best interests of the children.

One enormous benefit of Co-Parenting Coaching is that any divorcing couple can utilize these services regardless of whether you have already hired attorneys and regardless of whether the attorneys are collaboratively trained. Read more about Collaborative Divorce here.

Co-Parenting Coaching avoids a scenario where a judge makes decisions for a divorcing couple. Instead you, the divorcing couple, retain decision making power and choices in crafting a Co-Parenting Plan that is customized and best serves your particular needs and wishes as a Co-Parenting Team.

Beyond this, Co-Parenting Coaching significantly reduces costs for a divorcing couple. By being neutral and simultaneously serving the best interests of the children and the parents, Co-Parenting Coaches use proven, effective techniques that help resolve rigid, adversarial stances by parents (and/or their lawyers) which result in costly ongoing litigation, bitter/resentful feelings and increased emotional trauma for all members of the family.

As a Co-Parenting Coach I utilize recent cutting-edge research enabling parents to develop Co-Parenting Plans that:

  • Focus on the best interests of the children.
  • Focus on healthy development of the children.
  • Minimize trauma to the children.

Co-Parenting Coaches help parents negotiate and come to mutually acceptable, fair decisions, about many important issues including, but not limited to:

  • Time sharing schedules.
  • The importance of allowing children to maintain consistency in their lives.
  • The importance of maintaining scheduled activities such as sports, recitals, school plays, time with friends, etc.
  • Helping Co-Parents keep the lives of their children as normal and predictable as possible during this time of great change and thereafter.
  • Helping Co-Parents decide when and how new significant others should be introduced into the lives of the children.
  • Crafting  a durable, flexible agreement that can grow and change to accommodate the complexity and changes within the two co-parenting homes.
