The difficult truth is that sometimes a marriage cannot be saved. Sometimes one or both of the parties don’t even want to save it. And sometimes the marriage is already over – but as many divorced couples have discovered, if there are children involved, the relationship between the parents is never truly severed. Even if they were unable to make things work as spouses, for the good of their children they will have to learn to work together as co-parents. Whether or not having the exes together in a room is possible, we can help you learn to work together for the benefit of your children and yourselves as well. Contact us for more information about divorce counseling if this sounds like your situation.

They realized that married or not, they had to find a way to work together so their kids wouldn’t have to suffer. The Baltimore Therapy Center’s divorce coaching services provided a breath of fresh air for both of them to function as the parent they wanted to be.
