Setting up your blended family for success takes time and a lot of effort. Even the best of us struggle with creating a balanced loving home where all family members are comfortable. The transition affects each of us differently, whether aged eight months or eighteen, and each family member, including you, will need support.
Whether working with both ends of the bi-nuclear family, or just your half of your children’s homes, you will gain perspective and start feeling better within a handful of sessions. Teresa can help you decide on rules and roles for family members, and help you balance your routine with your child’s life outside of your home.
Teresa Petersen Mendoza can help you with the challenges of living as a blended family. As a former childcare provider and mother of a blended family herself, Teresa has a passion for helping blended families find the right balance to a happy family life.
Finding your happy medium
Teresa helps families create a vision of what they want their home to look like and then helps them move towards that vision. You’ll see some changes in a pretty quick turnaround.
- If you are in a blended family and are having a baby, family therapy can help you plan the best way to transition to your new family dynamic.
- If you are thinking about marriage and creating a blended family, family therapy can help you to make sure you are doing it in the way that is best for your family.
Your family is unique and has its own needs. Taking the time to talk things out or strategize in family therapy can give you the chance to recognize the changes that you can make that will help your family the most.
Co-parenting for blended families
Arranging co-parenting through family therapy can help you to get more harmony at home, learn to collaborate as a new family, and set expectations. Once expectations are clarified on all sides you can stop worrying about what is appropriate and enjoy a calmer relationship. Therapy can help you to focus on the best interests of your child and reduce stress and anxiety for parents.
If everybody wants to work together, then we can work with the other parents on co-parenting. Often, you will see significant improvement in 4-6 sessions.
