Divorce sometimes causes friction between a child and one parent – and when that happens, there is pain all around.
We help bring the distanced parent and child back together, toward rebuilding the relationship in a mutually beneficial way. This often involves an older child who harbors complicated feelings toward one parent for a variety of reasons. In parent-child Reunification Therapy, as this practice is commonly known, we seek to uncover why a child might refuse to see a parent after a remarriage or refuse to go to one parent’s house for parenting time.
We work with the parent and the kids as well as the ex-spouse, to arrive at a collaborative place for the whole family. One child becoming distanced from a parent affects the whole family – it’s never just the individuals who become alienated from one another.
There is hope! Even when things seem dark and without resolution, we can discover what lies beneath the dysfunction and repair the relationship.
