Foundations Counseling offers stepfamily and blended family counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor. Today, at least one-third of all children in the United States are expected to live in a stepfamily before they reach age 18. Born of conflict and loss, newfound commitment, and often heart-wrenching transition, stepfamilies and blended families face many lifestyle adjustments, challenges, and changes. To help these families become a cohesive unit, Foundations Counseling provides stepfamily and blended family counseling.
In a stepfamily, or blended family, one or both partners may have been married before, losing a spouse through divorce or death, and one or both of them may have children from their previous relationship(s). They fall in love and decide to marry, and in turn, form a new family that includes children from one or both of their first households.
Fortunately, most mixed families are able to work out their problems and live together in harmony. The optimal outcome does, however, require careful planning, frequent open discussions of feelings and thoughts, positive attitudes, mutual respect, and lots of patience. A number of important matters should be discussed when deciding to bring together two families. By dealing with these issues before joining the families, you can help keep potential problems from arising.
