We are both trained family therapists, and as such, we work with a variety of types and configurations of families. From the traditional “intact” family trying to figure out a difficult life transition, blended families with all their complicating and competing alliances, to the complicated negotiations of coparenting.
So if this sounds like you..
- You are struggling to “blend” your families.
- You have trouble with communication with your coparent.
- You are in the midst of a divorce and would like to craft your parenting plan with development of your child first in mind.
It turns out that individuals in a family are not like ingredients for a tasty smoothie. As a matter of fact, when you throw a divergent group of kids, teens, and a newly married couple into a “blender” of one house, the result is rarely tasty at first. We’ve been there, and we know how hard it can be to “blend” a family.
We can provide you with the right tools, appropriate approaches and healthy insights. Client frustrations often ease or disappear, problems become manageable, validation and openness increases, and healthy communication paves the way for calmer, happier relationships and a healthy way forward.
Catherine is also a Rule 31 trained mediator and can help with structuring parenting plans.
