Re: Therapist for Step parenting issues

There is a drop-in stepparent support group that meets the first Thursday of every month 7:30-9:00 pm at Bananas on Claremont in Oakland. I believe the phone number is 433-9404, but check a Parents' Press to be sure. The moderator, Anthony, is a stepfather, father, and professional counselor. He is very knowledgeable and does a good job of running the group. I attended for about a year until my son was born. I haven't been able to make it back since (he's 15 months old now). One drawback to the group is that attendance was very irregular. Only three people came on a regular basis, me and a couple (who also now have a toddler and aren't able to make it).

And, yes, being a stepparent can be very hard. I've been one for about 5 years now. If you want to talk more about it, please feel free to send me e-mail. Lucy


Yes there are very unique and challenging aspects of Step parenting. There are two wonderful people who I can recommend in this area.

Yes - stepparenting is incredibly hard work - and with such young people. My husband and I are learning lots of lessons. We did see a local therapist who specializes in stepparenting and runs a support group at Bananas. His name is Anthony Carpentieri. The support group is the first Thursday evening of each month at Bananas. I don't know the protocol of giving phone numbers over this site, but he is listed in Berkeley. Good luck.
