Living Life Counseling therapists are experienced in understanding the challenges, dynamics, and complexities associated with blended families. We find that many step families have similar needs and our step family counseling approach can help meet those challenges. If you are a stepparent or grandparent we can help your family in the following ways.

How We Can Help Your Family

  • Work with you to help your children cope with feelings of grief associated with parents' divorce or separation.
  • Identify areas of unresolved anxiety and bitterness associated with your divorce and ex-spouse.
  • Develop skills in your children to express and process feelings so their emotions can be dealt with in a productive manner.
  • Help you tackle feelings of being overwhelmed in managing the logistics inherently associated with blended families.
  • Provide coaching in approaches and techniques of raising your children in harmony with your ex-spouse.
  • Develop ways to understand and overcome conflicts within your blended family.
  • Create strategies to preserve the quality of your marriage as you face the stresses of managing a blended family.
