What is Therapy For Stepmothers?
Stepmothers typically struggle with outsider syndrome more often than stepfathers. This is usually because stepmothers want to help mother their stepchildren, though they are not their biological mothers. This can be frustrating to stepmoms because they are doing everything in their power to connect the two families. However, their good intentions can leave biological mothers feeling jealous and cause conflicts of loyalty for the children.
Therapy for stepmothers can help them address these issues head-on and give them the tools they need to turn the situation around. Together, you and I can start discussing the dynamics of your blended family and create a plan of action to get everyone on the same page.
If you’re a stepmother who is feeling like an outsider in your own home, I encourage you to reach out to me at (916) 579-7145 for a free 15-minute consultation.
