Starting Co-parenting counseling

What is co-parenting counseling?

Co-parenting counseling with our therapists at Thriveworks in Greenville, SC helps people better co-parent and work well together to best support their children. It assists in the navigation of the murky waters of co-parenting and offers benefits to the entire family.

How does co-parenting counseling work?

Co-parenting counseling addresses each client’s needs and challenges — it can help parents put aside their differences, create a healthy balance or routine with their kids, and more. Everyone’s challenges are different and so the therapeutic process is too.

Is co-parenting counseling conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks co-parenting counseling in Greenville is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does co-parenting counseling last?

Co-parenting counseling lasts as long as the parents need it to — often continuing for several months but sometimes shorter or longer.

Need more help deciding?

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

Counseling for co-parents is built to meet your needs. Thriveworks Greenville co-parenting therapists will stand by your side giving you expert advice, support, and encouragement as you grow past this difficult time and into a bright future.

We offer convenient appointment times – day, evening, and weekends.  We accept most major insurance plans. And there’s no long waiting list to get an appointment.  In most cases, we can offer you an appointment in 24-48 hours.

To schedule an online or in-person co-parent counseling session, give us a call at: (864) 952-4048.

I had a good therapist for 3 sessions and unfortunately, she had to leave the area for family reasons. I met for the first time with my new therapist and it went well, so all is good. So far, Thriveworks has been wonderful !

Kathy Hope is certainly committed to following Jesus Christ and is grounded in her beliefs and knowledge of the Bible. She offers wise counsel based on these beliefs, but is nonjudgmental and attentive to listening to others with compassion, understanding and care. She is thoughtful and wise in her counsel. She can be counted on to be trustworthy and ethical.

Kathleen Horn was so understanding and non-judgmental. She was really nice to work with and had a way of making me look at and think about things differently. She worked with me on coping skills and changing my thoughts so I could change behaviors and feel better. She helped me through a tough time and now I feel a lot less depressed and anxious. I would go to her again. Thank you for all of your help!

LaKimberly Dowdell was an excellent counselor. She was a great listener, while at the same time knowing precisely the right moment to provide her expert knowledge. She is very personable and caring, yet knows what to say to support the change you are seeking. I highly recommend her.

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

Emily has been an amazing help in my life for the past couple of years. She helped me see my worth when I couldn't see it myself. She helped me with my grief after losing my father. She helped me overcome my addictions with drugs and alcohol. She taught me to be kind to myself and that everyday is not gonna be an amazing day and that's okay. She helped me accept that I don't have to know the outcomes to big life changes that it's best to go with the flow, wear life like a loose garment. Emily is such and amazing counselor and I am forever grateful for everything she helped me see. Emily cares tremendously and I know deep in my heart she is gonna continue being the sunshine in many more client lives. Emily has made a huge impact on my life and I don't think I will ever find a counselor as down to earth as she is. Chicago misses you already!!! :) :) :)
