Co-Parenting Counseling for Parents in Vancouver, WA –
Learn to Co-Parent After Divorce or Separation
Divorce is often a difficult process for everyone involved especially children. When children are involved it often becomes much more complicated. Divorcing with children means that both parents must still work together for the benefit of their children rather than parting ways. We know that relationships after divorce can be difficult, but they don’t have to be. Navigating how to manage your new family dynamic can be tricky, and many divorcing parents may question whether or not it is even possible. At Compass we can help you navigate this relationship together.
We will help you manage the conflict, making your life more manageable with you ex and your children. Boundaries are a key component that we will help you create and maintain with your child’s other parent.
When you are going through such stressful situation it is very important to care for yourself. At Compass we can help you navigate through the new challenges you face and create a happy and healthy home for you and your family.

What is Co-Parenting Counseling?
Co-parenting counseling is a therapy service that works with both parents to address the children’s issues along with the parenting relationship as it is associated with divorce and family separation. Co-Parent Counseling will guide you and help you build a relationship as co-parents.
Co-Parent counseling offers specific and practical suggestions to decrease conflict, resolve differences and help you parent your children. Co-Parent counseling will require that you look closely at yourself and how you contribute to the situation your children find themselves in.
The success of Co-Parent Counseling rests on the parents’ willingness to step back from their own feelings about each other and focus on the children, their new relationship as co-parents, and the new family they have created. Success requires the parent to always have their children’s best interest as their guiding value and be willing to examine and admit when that is not the value guiding their conduct.
With this perspective, and with the new skills learned in counseling, parents can make a successful transition from embattled ex-spouse to empowered co-parents.
A primary purpose of these counseling sessions is to provide a forum where the parents can work to establish cooperative parenting.
