Blended Families

Blended Family Statistics:


I've been trained through Smart Stepfamilies and am a Recognized Smart Stepfamily Therapy Provider.


Marriage can be challenging... and remarriage is even harder! Blending together two families is often like navigating a mine field. Your relationship with your children changes, and being a step-parent adds another level of complexity. Family traditions and practices can be quite diverse as well, adding tension and unexpected explosions.

I can help you gain new perspective and develop new skills to successfully navigate the mines that threaten to destroy your marriage and parenting relationships in your blended family.

If you are in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, a free, 24-hour hotline at 1.800.273.8255. 

If your issue is an emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.  

Christian Counseling Encinitas does not offer crisis counseling or emergency services.
