I have been with my husband for 14+ years. There have been some serious stepfamily struggles that almost tore our family apart. Knowing the pain and heartache I wanted to help prevent other couples in stepfamilies from walking down the painful path. I knew I wanted to help stepcouples like me succeed.Your stepcouple relationship has almost a 70 chance of divorce! But I am passionate about supporting your stepfamily success. A strong and successful stepfamily is based on the strong and successful step couple! Let’s work together to help you turn stepfamily stress into stepfamily success! How can I help YOU become a strong, successful and unstoppable step couple team?
