Blended Family

A blended family Can Be Challenging

The process of forming a new, blended family can be a challenging and a difficult experience for everyone involved.

  • Are you having difficulty making your marriage the priority?
  • Are you having difficulty communicating with your partner about coparenting?
  • Is disciplining stepchildren a challenge?

Can Couples Counseling help work through the challenges found in a Blended Family?

As you blend two families, differences in parenting, discipline, lifestyle, etc., can create contention between you and your partner. This can also become a source of frustration for the children. We work with partners to help overcome step parent challenges. We help you and your partner find common ground and agree on consistent guidelines about rules, and discipline with children. This shows the children that you and your partner intend to deal with issues as a team.

It’s important that you and your partner work on creating clear boundaries and communicate often and openly. Couples counseling can be instrumental in helping you and your partner establish trust that is crucial to creating a strong, cohesive blended family.

We have helped hundreds of couples make significant changes, develop a stronger relationship foundation and reestablish connection.
