San Diego Blended Family Counseling

  • Do you feel torn between your partner and your children?
  • Do your children and step-children disrespect you and lack discipline?
  • Do you feel as though you are competing with your step-children for your partner’s time or attention?
  • Is your new family divided by feelings of “us” vs. “them?”

If you’re entering into your second or third marriage, the odds are against you. An incredible 62% of second and 75% of third marriages end in divorce. But you don’t have to be one of these statistics if you have common blended family problems. If you choose to pursue blended family counseling, you will be positioned to overcome conflict and build strong relationships with your family members.
