Prioritizing the co-parent relationship

Dr. Jessica Michaelson is a clinical psychologist, mother of two rambunctious boys and an early parenthood coach. She helps parents thrive personally so they can help their children thrive.

We’ll talk about preventing and working through conflict in our relationships and how to keep the romantic, intimate dynamics alive.
