LET ME BE YOUR SUPPORT SYSTEM
I’m here to support and empower you through the challenges of dating a man with kids. My program focuses on women who are either dating, in a committed relationship, or married and a Stepmom. (Actually, I can’t stand the word “step”, I prefer Soul Mom or Bonus Mom.)
I don’t think anyone can understand the depths of this role until they’ve walked in our shoes. Instead of being invalidated or judged, I believe we should be honored and treated like the angels that we are, helping to heal broken families. Which….. Is. Not. Easy. Add a high-conflict biological mother to dating a man with kids and you have a recipe for emotional chaos.
There is hope. I promise. This is about working together with your significant other to become a team. Blending lives doesn’t allow for avoidance of the difficult stuff. Expectations, issues, and boundaries usually need to be addressed much earlier than in most relationships. And if there is a high-conflict bio-mother, it’s about protecting your family and relationship from the impact of her negative energy.
Let’s do this. I can help you.
I understand because I’ve lived it
It’s taken me over three years of working with the best experts and therapists to develop the tools to change the dynamic my partner and I were drowning in. And now that we’ve named it, we’ve tamed it. I now know this journey is so much bigger than household struggles or one insignificant person who is a source of toxicity. This is about soul-work. A return to your personal power, self-love and a search for the true essence of your relationship and mothering in your own unique way. Don’t lose one more precious day — it’s time to empower yourself and carve out a life and relationship you love — with intention.
