Are you struggling with being a stepparent? I'm a Stepfamily Coach and Counselor that specializes in stepfamilies. I also work with clients experiencing non-stepfamily concerns including; relationship issues; self-esteem issues; life transitions; GLBT issues; stress and anger management; women's issues; and personal growth. VISIT WEBSITE TO LEARN MORE.

Traditional theories in couples counseling and marital and family therapy overlook the unique dynamics of the stepfamily unit, with the application of such theories to a stepfamily being detrimental. What makes me different is that I SPECIALIZE IN STEPFAMILIES.

I have advanced clinical training through the National Stepfamily Resource Center and The Stepfamily Foundation. I've been featured nationally in both broadcast and print media, and am a contributing writer for StepMom Magazine. Through providing education and research-based interventions, my mission is to help these relationships become stronger and thrive. Telephone/Internet (email and video) services available; Distance Stepfamily/Stepmom/Stepdad Coaching services also available.

More Info About My Practice

Do you feel your spouse lets his or her kids run wild?
Do you feel like an outsider in your own family?
Confused about your role in your stepfamily?
Kids having trouble adjusting?
Is your stepfamily not what you expected? I CAN HELP!

I am a Master Stepfamily Coach, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, a National Certified Counselor, and a Distance Credentialed Counselor. I also have advanced clinical training for working with stepfamilies through the National Stepfamily Resource Center.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialize in stepfamilies from both perspectives: The first being the unique challenges that stepparents (stepmoms and stepdads) face in their role; and second, what biological parents struggle with when another adult is inserted into the equation. As both a stepmother and biological mother, I have an 'insider's' understanding of the dynamics which comprise the stepfamily. During my graduate studies, I noticed that traditional counseling theories in marital and family therapy mostly overlooked the uniqueness of the stepfamily unit.

Realizing that a gap existed between what academic programs were teaching and the real life experiences of more than half of U.S. homes living in stepfamilies, I founded Success for StepsĀ® - a resource dedicated to those living 'in step'.
