Nothing is more difficult than relationships. And nothing means more to you. All of us are hard-wired to be in relationship, to care for and be cared for by others. But what do you do when differences lead to never-ending battles because you never get close to the real issues? Or when withdrawal leads to resentments that are never addressed at all. I would like to help you remember your strengths that brought you together in the first place, feel relief as you share what is important to you, and appreciate each other's differences, which may really be a strength.
Stepfamilies can be more challenging. When we remarry, it is with the hope that our family will be whole again. This expectation can leave you discouraged when it is not. I know. I created one. I also know how to help navigate the transitions inherent in bringing two family cultures together.
Unresolved childhood issues, grief, and/or trauma can negatively impact your understanding of self and view of others. It can lead to anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and can negatively affect your relationships. It doesn't have to be this way. You can resolve the past and face life's challenges with courage, vitality, and resiliency.
