Co-parenting- Greenville, SC – Counselors and Therapists in Greenville, SC

Parenting a child is one of the most wonderful experiences life has to offer, and that doesn’t change when you switch to co-parenting. While co-parenting a child comes with its own array of difficulties and problems to navigate, it can be just as rewarding and healthy, maybe even more so.

There’s a bad rap around co-parenting. People seem to think that if you have to resort to co-parenting, you’ve somehow failed as a parent in the first place. This is a flat out lie. Parents who co-parent can still be amazing, loving, and great at their job.

That doesn’t make the job of a coparent any easier, though. There’s no blueprint or step-by-step guide to co-parenting, despite it being a common practice. That’s what Thriveworks Greenville co-parenting counseling steps in. Our experts have helped countless couples navigate the murky water of co-parenting, and we are excited to do the same with you!

What does Co-Parenting Counseling Look Like?

How can we put aside our differences to work together? What does a healthy balance look like? How can I best support my child and guarantee the best future for them? Will Greenville Co-parenting teach me how to parent?

Co-parenting is a broad topic! There are a million ways to do it right. Thriveworks co-parenting therapists aren’t here to tell you which way you should parent. We are here to meet you where you’re at and help you through the problems you are presented with. Everyone’s problems will be different, and so should everyone’s therapeutic process.

Co-parent therapy might also involve the child. This is an adjustment they will need to adapt to as well, and it can be helpful to work through some of their emotions and questions in a safe, nonjudgmental, nonbiased space. You love your child, that’s proven by your interest in learning more about co-parenting. You want what is best, and we are in no way trying to replace you. Sometimes, a professional counselor can reach emotional areas of your child that you, because of your proximity to them, cannot.

Finally, co-parenting is about teaching you how to give yourself grace and self-love. Parenting is hard, and you’re bound to make a mistake every now and again. Self-care and self-acceptance are just as important parts to co-parenting as communication and follow-through are.

More specifically, co-parenting in Greenville might cover:

  • Resolving past conflicts with your co-parent partner
  • Setting up healthy mental and emotional boundaries
  • Develop strong communication and problem-solving skills
  • Managing the many duties of a coparent
  • Adjust to the big change
  • What your parenting style might be and how to implement it effectively and lovingly
  • Strengthen relationship with kid(s)
  • Anything else that you bring up!

Co-parenting is a broad subject that will be different depending on your unique situation, personality, and goals. Thriveworks Greenville co-parenting counseling makes sure to keep you at the center of all our sessions so you and your family can move on to a healthy, happy future.

When is Co-Parenting Counseling Beneficial?

You give so much of yourself to your children – your work, love, and energy are just the start. While it can be hard to take a step back and take care of yourself, it is a crucial habit to get in to. Children are imitators. When your children see you setting aside time to better yourself and make time for your own mental health, they will begin imitating your proactiveness and self-love.

Co-parenting counseling in Greenville might be especially helpful if you are struggling with:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Struggling to get a healthy amount of sleep
  • Feelings of guilt
  • Constant backlash or fighting with your child
  • Unsure how to parent a specific issue
  • Fighting with the other parent figure involved
  • Are unhappy or unfulfilled
  • Want to work on your relationship with your children or co-parent partner
  • Want to help your child through a hard time
  • Have someone in the family with a mental illness
  • Want to work on your own happiness! This is an oftentimes understated but crucial aspect of counseling

Patient, Compassionate, Very Knowledgeable; leaving you with renewed dignity and Self Worth

The only reason why my Family stopped going to see Ms. Dowdell is because I had to change jobs and at the time...Read more

my schedule would not allow us to continue services. She made sure my Family had a great transition to another Provider and that we had continuity of care. Now that my schedule has a little more flexibility, I am very thankful to be able to continue services with Ms. Dowdell who still remembers my Family’s history like we were just in her office yesterday (over 1 year ago)! She listens intently and never puts you down, and helps you understand your emotions and what issues and problems you may be going through in a way that you can understand but clearly. Personally, I deal with a lot of stress and being pulled in a lot of directions, and would when I felt as though my words did not make sense coming out of my mouth, she would know how to piece together what I was saying and not make me feel bad for being too vulnerable and made my therapy sessions a safe space to learn and grow from them. I am forever grateful for how she is helping my Family accept what we need to accept, change what we need to change, and heal from the root of our wounds; wounds I did not know were there. I highly recommend her.

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was...Read more

stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.
