Starting Blended family counseling

What is Blended family counseling?

Blended family counseling from our therapists at Thriveworks in Peachtree City, GA helps families who have come together through marriage work through changes, accept differences, ease tension, and form bonds. It enables parents to set boundaries and expectations around finances, parenting, and other areas. In addition, it offers all family members a safe space to voice their thoughts and feelings.

How does Blended family counseling work?

Blended family counseling will likely involve attending sessions as a group, but it might also involve individual sessions with each family member. It works by encouraging the group to share any emotions or concerns or challenges they might be experiencing, as relates to the family, and then offering tailored solutions.

Is Blended family counseling conducted in person or online?

Blended family counseling at Thriveworks in Peachtree City, GA is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Blended family counseling last?

Blended family counseling from one of our providers at Thriveworks in Peachtree City, GA be short- or long-term, lasting for weeks, months, or years. The length is dependent on the family's areas of concerns, whether they're more immediate or they're more complex.

When The Brady Bunch aired in 1969, the inner workings of a blended family was brought to America’s attention. Mike, Carol, Greg, Marcia, Peter, Jan, Bobby, and Cindy made it look easy to bring two families together. As their theme song reminded everyone, “they knew that it was much more than a hunch; That this group must somehow form a family. That’s the way we all became the Brady bunch.” Simple. Right? The Bradys had the advantage of being on a sitcom where all problems must be resolved within a 30-minute episode. Most blended families go through turbulent times. There are always ups and downs, and many are going to counseling for blended families to help them navigate the rollercoaster.

“Live one day at a time (or one moment if you have to).
Blend little by little and celebrate even the smallest breakthrough.”
–Dani Parker-Kimbrough

When two families merge into one, there are always challenges, but there are also incredible benefits. When families are blended, both the children and parents can be exposed to deep and unique love. Often, blended families are places where resiliency and a strong sense of self grow. Experiencing these benefits often requires a lot of sacrifice and work. Many families also need the guidance of a counselor. As Dani Parker-Kimbrough explains, blending a family requires everyone to go one step at a time, and therapists often know which is the next step to take so that all the family members are able to flourish.

Whether your blended family is just starting its journey or whether they have been on the path for a while, know that help is available. The therapists at Thriveworks Peachtree City have worked with many step families who are all at different stages. We know that life is harder than the Bradys made it look, but we also know that living as a big, happy family is also possible.

What Are Blended Families?

Blended families or stepfamilies have no limit to the form they can take. Some blended families look like divorced or broken-up parents who have separate homes and are sharing parenting responsibilities, but they are not dating or looking to remarry. Some step families look like a parent who married a partner who does not have any children. Some blended families are like the Bradys where each partner has children from a previous relationship. Some partners or new spouses take active roles in the children’s lives. Others do not.

The divorce rate for first-time marriages was 30 percent when The Brady Bunch first aired, and today, that rate has risen to 40 percent. The rate for second or third marriages is even higher. There are a lot of blended families, and according to the US Census Bureau, the number is growing by 1300 families each day. In fact, as the divorce rate hovers around 50 percent, it also makes sense that half of the 60 million children ages 13 and under are living in a blended family. If you are in one of these blended families, most likely, you are also experiencing some of these common challenges.

  1. Challenges Couples May Face in Blended Families:
    Couples are not only working to establish their new partnership or marriage, but they are also helping their families navigate the new situation. They set the tone and lead the way for everyone else in the family. If partners are both bringing children to the marriage, they will have to establishing their unique parenting style. They may also have to deal with ex-spouses who have different parenting styles. If one of the partners has never been a parent previously, they will have to define their role. If the family decides it is best for them to take an active role, then they will have to learn a new set of social-emotional skills for parenting.
  2. Challenges Children May Face in Blended Families:
    Just as adults face challenges, so do children. Even positive changes can cause significant stress for kids. Often, children have the least control over the circumstances that lead to blended families, but they may feel the changes most severely. If a parent has died or their parents divorced, children often need to grieve while navigating a new life. They may be experiencing difficult emotions that they have never experienced before: loss, frustration, and grief. Often, children struggle with emotional and behavioral problems at some point in the blending process.

I have known Stephanie for over six years and worked side by side with her in a mental health center for part of that time. What comes across first and foremost is her caring and concern for her clients and her determination to see that their needs are met. She brings to her work a wide range of experience and training along with confidence that is reassuring and a comfort to those in distress. She can deal calmly with the most severe issues as well as with problems of daily living. In the time that I've known her, she has been licensed in three different states to practice in a variety of settings. If you come to her in a time of need, in a time of emotional upheaval or difficult questions, I don't think you will find a more competent or more caring therapist.
