This global pandemic is certainly unprecedented. Schools and workplaces are closed. Families are isolated from each other. Financial concerns are worrisome. This all leads to incresed stresses within all our relationships. We are here to listen to your concerns during this difficult time!
If you answered "Yes" to any of these, then you are looking for the specialized attention which Step Together Family Therapy offers.
Sometimes families feel like there is no hope. Especially during those most challenging times which families may confront at some point:
However, moving forward from what seems impossible is possible. This is achieved by providing a neutral and safe therapeutic space, listening to your concerns, and setting goals to move families toward a happier and healthier life.
My personal goal is to help you overcome your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward within the life of your family and on your personal road to self-discovery. My focus is to help individuals and families heal and become aware of their inner strengths.
I will be here with you along the way, as your family learns to live with, and love one another, in harmony and mutual respect... step-by-step.
Co-parenting after the break-up of a relationship can be one of the most difficult things a parent will face. But if your child is placed in the middle of constant conflict between his parents, he will ultimately pay the price in the long run. Learn how to effectively communicate with your ex even when hard feelings linger. Your child will thank you!
It's great to work on your relationship before problems start. But realistically, we know this does not always happen. Divorce discernment is a structured protocol which can help couples address the painful realities of considering the future course of their marriage, especially when partners are in various stages of ambivalance about whether to stay or go.
There are many factors which contribute to the separation of a parent from their child: divorce, abuse, and incarceration, just to name a few. It is never too late to take the necessary steps to repair the fragile relationship between a parent and their child. But it does take work. Reunification therapy, whether court-ordered or elective, can help mend these broken bonds.
It does not matter what you call your family, but if you have attempted to combine two families together from previous relationships and those involve children- you know just how difficult a challenge this can be!
Even under the best of circumstances, children can have an especially difficult time acclimating to these big family changes:
Now, consider these typical scenarios:
At Step Together Family Therapy, working with Stepfamilies is what we do. We help:
Whoever said blending two families was as easy as "The Brady Bunch" must have been crazy!
I hold a B.A. in Psychology from Holy Family University and an M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from La Salle University. I am a Clinical Fellow of AAMFT, member of PAMFT, and a member of the National Stepfamily Resource Center. My husband and I have successfully raised five children in our own stepfamily for the past 16 years. I tend to take a no-nonsense and realistic approach in offering families practical strategies which can help change the negative patterns which currently keep them stuck.
Maybe you think you just don't have the time in your life for weekly therapy. But your family's busy schedule can be easily accommodated with convenient morning, afternoon, evening, and weekend appointments.
