Life Transitions – Divorce and Blended Families

130

The effects of divorce are multi-dimensional and may provoke stress in a number of areas such: as ongoing conflict between divorcing spouses; emotional turmoil for all members of the family especially children; and transition in financial stability. Families as a unit or individual family members often need support at this time to work through anger, loss, resentment and fear. Similarly, the blending of families is extremely complex with struggles arising around bonding, co-parenting, new rules, potential rivalry among step-siblings, and new demands on each member. I enjoy working with families to anticipate these difficulties and work out solutions.
