Step Families

Step families or blended families can create challenges for both parents and children, as family members are urged to accommodate a number of changes. Children may face difficulty adapting to different parenting styles and family routines. In addition, children from blended families often experience stress, brought on by visitations, contact and conflict between biological parents and step parents, or through conflict with step siblings.

Adults, who are planning to remarry or cohabitate with children from previous relationships, are likely to experience problems in their current relationships. Through therapy, family members can expect to attend most sessions as a group or individually, supplemental sessions for each child or with one/both parent(s).
