My Approach

Being in a steprelationship (that means you are married, living together or in a serious committed relationship) is different from a traditional relationship in that you have children from a previous relationship that are involved. It also means you are dealing with or have dealt with an ex-spouse (dead or alive). This changes to whole way of dealing with family issues. Having been in a stepmom since 1990, and having taken many years to come to understand how to deal with challenges related to being in a stepfamily, I know first hand how to help you get the results you want in a very short period of time.

As long as you are committed to doing the work, you will see some amazing transformation in very little time.

As a coach, I provide you with tools and expert guidance to help you have a successful family, marriage and life.

How It Works

We start by looking at the structure of your unique family dynamics and see where some of the issues are. Then, we look at communication tools as well as ways to help resolve conflict. We identify individual roles within the family and in the couple. I teach you negotiation skills and help you establish your set of House Rules which are very important. We then look at what types of expectations are realistic and which ones are not.

This approach is an action-oriented approach that requires you to do some homework. Active participation is part of the success of this approach. There are no guarantees, just as there are none in life, but this is a great opportunity to learn a new way to function and succeed as a family, in your marriage, and in your personal achievements.
