Counseling for Blended Families – Therapists and Counselors in Chesterfield

Blended families represent a beautiful new step in life, but they can also present their unique challenges. All families have problems, disagreements, and trials, but a blended family presents a different set of issues that a traditional family may not have to experience. Blended families often result from divorce. This presents an emotional roller coaster that is challenging to process. Many people who are divorced have never fully recovered from the emotional and psychological pain that the experience of divorce creates. When entering into a new marriage and family, many of the issues of the past relationship can come back up, causing anxiety and stress.

Children also can have difficulty with a new blended family

The new couple may not agree on discipline or parenting styles, and former husbands or wives may have a lot of influence on these decisions. It can take time to develop a relationship between a stepparent and stepchild. The stepparent needs to be intentional in creating the bond, and taking time to do so. It is important to not try to replace a parent, but rather should create a new and unique bond with the child. The age and gender of the child also will influence how they adapt to their new family as well.

Strife and stress in any family is best dealt with outside of an argument. Spending time working out how the new family dynamics will look is beneficial to preventing possible disagreements in the future. Counseling is not only good for the family, but also for the individual.

I was so nervous about going to therapy being that I’ve never foresaw a reason or need to go… I had encountered a very traumatic accident at work and it left me confused and depressed about my career path! I can honestly say if it weren’t for Ariane I’d still be left battling confusion and and depression from my accident. I’ve suffered anxiety and panic attacks from the incident but Ari has given me helpful tips to get through my tough times when I’m experiencing those attacks. I’m just so grateful to have encountered a very experienced and understanding counselor who genuinely has my best interest at a full recovery at heart!

This was my first therapy experience. I was in desperate need for help. Jenee was my therapist for a year and I can’t overstate how incredibly helpful she has been. She met me where I was mentally and helped me to find myself and healthy/productive ways of dealing with my everyday struggles. I’m a completely different and happier person thanks to her hard work.
