What is Co-Parenting?

In Co-parenting, or “partnered parenting”, two parents share the responsibilities for raising a child despite the termination of their romantic or marital relationship.  Co-parenting can be healthy for children because it creates a stable and supportive family structure, and it can help parents communicate effectively and continue to be friends throughout their child’s life. Robby Johnson helps parents create written co-parenting plans that allow them to stay active in a child’s life without the tension and discord that can otherwise characterize a post-separation family.

Should I Consult with a Therapist Before a Divorce, or wait until after the divorce?

Pre-divorce therapy can be extremely helpful for both members of a separating couple – giving them the communication tools that they will need to address the separation in an amicable and civil way.  If a child is involved, pre-divorce counseling can help set expectations and can help the child deal with the consequences of the divorce and the changing relationship of the parents.

Post-divorce therapy can help you deal with the emotions (including anger, grief, and stress) that follow a divorce – and can help you build healthy relationships again after the divorce is over.  Robby Johnson is an experienced divorce counselor, and he can help you through your pre-divorce or post-divorce issues.

What does “Whole Body Wellness” Mean?

Body, Mind and Soul’s philosophy is summed up in the name of the company. We believe that a comprehensive approach to health and wellness, one that addresses physical, mental, and spiritual components, is necessary for good health.  We help all of our clients in a holistic and science-based way, using a variety of therapies to ensure that they develop as a ‘whole person’ during their time in therapy.

Can my developmentally disabled child benefit from therapy?

Absolutely!  In fact, many forms of therapy that are offered by Robby Johnson at Mind, Body, and Soul are specifically tailored to children that have trouble expressing themselves.  For example, play therapy provides a relatively unstructured environment where children can use the freedoms of play to express their emotions and their thought process – and it can provide a window into the mental well-being of a child that can’t communicate through other means.
