Custody & co-parenting issues
I do not have the expertise to perform parenting assessments and it is not my practice to provide parents with reports. I do not get involved regarding anything related to custody matters, unless it concerns a safety matter in which I'm obligated to report child abuse.
Except for rare circumstances, in order for me to accept your child as a client I ask that both parents with decision making rights agree to my services and attend the intake session. This avoids conflict for the child and sets expectations. I expect caregivers to communicate with each other on their own without needing me to share relevant therapeutic details with more than one party. I ask parents to view their role as part of a team for their child, with the child's needs prioritized during and after sessions.
