My Approach to Helping

Are you married or dating someone with children? As a Stepfamily Coach, National Certified Counselor and Licensed Counselor, I provide Couples Counseling, Family Therapy, Individual Psychotherapy, and Stepfamily Coaching in a nonjudgmental and supportive environment. I'm also a Board-Certified TeleMental Health Provider and have been doing distance work with client for years now, and I can HELP YOU. I work with my clients to find solutions that fit their own personal lives. 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, The Stepfamily Foundation, the Alabama Community Healthy Marriage Initiative, and the Florida Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. TelephoneInternet (email and video) services available. **Set up a complimentary consultation**

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 Steps? - a resource dedicated to those living 'in step'.
