Blended Family Therapy

Is your non-traditional family situation causing stress in your daily life? We are here to support you and the rest of your family in working towards a better family foundation.


Blended Families (also known as Step Families) are families that are formed through remarriage, adoption, or other other non-traditional circumstances. The transition into this new family unit can be difficult and full of tension. Blended Family Therapy can support a merged family through a variety of approaches centered around communication and understanding. It can take time for the tensions and conflicts to subside and therapy is a useful tool in supporting all the members of your family work towards combined goals.

If any of the below remarks sound familiar, your blended family may benefit from the support of therapy:

  • "He/She isn't my real dad/mom, I already have a dad/mom!"
  • "Our kids are never going to get along..."
  • "I don't have to listen to you! You're not my real dad/mom!"

The blending of families is a beautiful thing, which can often present relationship challenges. Creating a harmonious family can be difficult enough, but blending two families or blending through an adoption can create additional hurdles. Therapy Support for blended families can help you to overcome these challenges through the following support mechanisms.

  • Learning new roles within the family unit and how to navigate those roles
  • Learning new skills for your family and how to incorporate them.
  • Setting boundaries with parenting/parenting styles, discipline, and finances.
  • Understanding of the time it takes to adapt to the new family dynamic (sometimes 2-5 years)
