I am able to answer questions with regard to the emotional considerations that arise from divorce and remarriage as well as questions about blended families and the unique issues that spring from these relationships. Questions that I am unable to answer have anything to do with legal matters. I am not a lawyer, so these questions are outside of my scope of practice.
I have been in a blended family situation for 30 years and understand the mistakes that can be made, the good intentions that fail and the unique situations that can arise having ex-spouses as part of the family unit. I am also a professional counselor.
