Partners look to each other to fulfill more of their emotional needs than ever before. While this can deepen a couple’s connection, it also creates more stress. Co-parenting, the responsibilities of home and office, technology, expectations versus reality regarding gender equity, and the complexity of sexual intimacy test even the strongest of connections. At Soho Parenting couples have a safe place to explore, strengthen, and heal their relationships.
Many couples wait too long to get help or have found traditional couples therapy lacking. Marital therapy at Soho Parenting is based on the teachings of the Relational Life Institute and informed by the philosophy of the Internal Family Systems model of psychotherapy. Couples in therapy can come to understand the emotional triggers that create distance and resentment. Therapy can teach honest, direct, and compassionate communication to restore a loving connection between partners and a deeper understanding of each other.
Separation and Divorce
Families dealing with the separation and divorce process need guidance and support to help navigate this difficult terrain. Soho Parenting provides a number of options to help this hard time go as smoothly as possible.
Supportive Counseling for Adults and Children
Divorce is a very complicated life transition. A myriad of conflicting feelings such as loss, freedom, anger, empowerment, guilt, and excitement are part and parcel of making a huge family change. Soho Parenting provides adults a forum for processing these reactions and making mindful decisions that affect the whole family. In addition, we offer play therapy for children who are struggling with understanding their parents’ divorce.
For families that are involved in a contentious divorce, therapy for children is particularly important. Our therapists provide a nurturing and safe place for a child to process the complicated situation and guidance for parents as how to minimize conflict.
An objective child development professional is a useful resource in making decisions for your children during separation and divorce. A parent coordinator can act as an arbiter when an agreement regarding the children is difficult to reach. A parent coordinator adds important perspective on the age-appropriate emotional needs of children and can be helpful in constructing the parenting time plan.
