It’s okay if you’re struggling right now.

No one taught you how to handle this.

You’ve fallen in love with a man — but the biological mother of his kids seems hostile.

This wasn’t how it was supposed to go.

Intuitively, you know something isn’t right.

But where can you turn?

You need your partner to be your teammate — but it feels like he’s unconsciously enabling her behavior, fearing what she might do next.

It’s relentless.

Your stomach goes into knots when his phone lights up with a call or message from her.

You start to ask yourself — am I crazy? Am I being too sensitive?

You might have read books, listened to podcasts, or even sought professional advice — but it still isn’t helping.

It feels like she’s determined to make your lives a living hell.

But you’ve got a warrior spirit and you believe you have a good man — so you persevere.

You’re drowning in stress and feel like you’re losing control of your life.

You feel isolated.

No one else seems to understand. 

You’ve had ENOUGH. Something needs to change. 

Now what?

i hear you

You’ve done an AMAZING job so far.

Our stories are more similar than you may think and I know how painful this is.

Many other women are also living in this dysfunctional pattern of pain, anxiety and energy-draining conflict. 

And you know what — this feels hard because it IS hard.

Society pressures us to believe that we should all be able to co-parent cooperatively for the sake of the kids.

BUT you’re living in an abnormal situation and one size does not fit all.

The regular rules of co-parenting can’t be applied to high-conflict cases.

That’s the trap.

And that’s why generic advice isn’t working, as reasonable as it might be.

It’s time to start seeing the situation for what it is.

There is hope.

You CAN break the cycle.

And I can show you how. 


“If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.” – Stephen Covey

If you want a different outcome, make different choices.

Here’s the thing — the more you blame someone else for being the source of your problems, the more you disempower yourself.

By complaining about the same issues without initiating change or sweeping things under the rug, you’re risking:

YOUR emotional well-being, YOUR physical health, YOUR relationship — not theirs.

The magic happens when we’re able to take a step back and get honest and accountable in our own lives.

YOU get to choose what you will allow into your life and what you won’t accept. 

So — I’m inviting you to approach it with a fresh and empowered perspective. 

Conflict can be an opportunity for growth, or it can wreak havoc on your life.

It can deepen your relationship, or it can destroy it.

It’s time to take your power back.


A transformative one-on-one coaching program for women in the stepmom role who are dating, in a committed relationship, or married to a man who has children.

My course is for those of you in a co-parenting situation that has consistently been causing stress for you and your significant other.

And — no matter how hard you try to co-parent peacefully with the biological mother of the kids — the dynamic isn’t improving.

Rise Above the Chaos will help you and your partner identify if you’re spiraling in a genuinely “high-conflict” reality and guide you through the emotional work to shift unhealthy patterns.

This program will ask you to go deep and delve into vulnerable territories.

It can inspire a search for self-love, the true essence of your relationship, and a path to living in the stepmom role in your own unique way.

And sister, let me tell you…

Once you tap into your personal power, no one can ever take it away from you.

We’re talking about the rest of your life. 

Are you ready to start protecting your future?

Solutions — not problems

I know how hard this is.

There’s a limit to how much more you can take. 

You’re running out of time — and energy — to shift this. 

Doing the work NOW is the key to getting ahead of more unnecessary pain. 

That’s why my coaching process focuses on solutions — not just more of the problem. 

Rise Above the Chaos is an intervention into your present reality that will teach you an unconventional parenting stance.

A new approach that will empower you and your partner to shield yourselves — and the kids — from more chaos. 

My goal is to get you to a place where the drama and conflict don’t take center stage in your life.

If you do this right, you’ll no longer depend on outside sources or online stepmom groups for advice or to vent.

Instead, you’ll be able to efficiently tackle issues alongside your man and move the hell on with your precious life.

You won’t need anyone else to validate what you feel in your gut.

You’ll no longer be vulnerable to generic advice from lawyers, mediators, therapists, and coaches who don’t understand the intricacies of a high-conflict reality.

Consciously choosing the right professionals when needed.

No more wasted time — or money.

The path to reclaiming your life starts today.


Rise Above the Chaos is an introspective program that will show you how to live in alignment. 

You’ll learn how to pay attention to how you feel, listen to your intuition, and be true to yourself. 

Unlocking the essence of YOU. 

We’ll line your choices up with your core values and teach you the foundational skills to take this forward into other areas of your life.

This isn’t easy.

It takes effort. 

You’re going to have to dig deep. 

But it works. 

I know it might be daunting.

But once you’ve mastered this alignment process, you’ll be able to return to it with a calm sense of confidence that you and your relationship can handle anything. 

It can feel as if you’re peeling away shallow layers as you tune in to who you truly are, and set the real you free.


No more bullshit. 

THIS is what it looks like to take your power back.

I understand what you’re going through because I’ve lived it.

I firmly believe that a coach or therapist can’t take you where they haven’t been themselves.

I began my journey by providing dating, relationship, and general life coaching to women across the world.

Then, six years ago, I found myself struggling in my relationship with a man who has kids. He was an awesome partner in every way except for the drama his past decisions brought into my life. 

As the shit started to hit the fan, I felt like I was speeding toward a trainwreck. I even found myself secretly hoping he would do something “bad,” so I could justify leaving him.

He never did.

I realized that I had to make sense of what was happening if I wanted our relationship to survive. 

I wanted to be happy — and I wasn’t about to settle for a life filled with chaos.

Our goal became to rise above the conflict together and move on with our lives.

It took a tremendous amount of work to figure out how to create healthy, SUSTAINABLE change within a high-conflict co-parenting dynamic. 

I’m not talking about a few days or weeks of normalcy, then WHAM — another bomb drops, and our lives implode — again.

For five years, I committed to studying under the guidance of some of the best therapists, psychologists, life coaches, and high-conflict specialists.

Once my partner and I implemented foundational changes, I was finally able to walk through the healing process and begin to thrive.

Now I know it’s possible because we’ve done it.

I’ve condensed my knowledge and experience into Rise Above the Chaos — turning my financial investment and years of learning and hard work into a 12-session solution for my soul sisters who are struggling just like I was.

There IS light at the end of this tunnel.

I can show you the path there.




Maiko has been a lifesaver! My 1:1 time with her has been so valuable and enlightening. For a long time, I felt like I was alone in this struggle of being a step-parent to children whose mother seemed crazy. I've learned useful coping strategies and I have more clarity​ about which issues are worth fighting and which are not. It's so reassuring to know that my frustrations are not only normal but warranted!
Maiko was wonderful in helping me set up healthy boundaries when it comes to my husband's ex-wife so I didn’t continue to leave myself and my relationship vulnerable. She helped me feel empowered to stand up against my stepkids' mother and protect my marriage at all costs. Maiko is so easy to work with and has been a great help to me. I'm so thankful that our paths crossed when they did.
I worked with Maiko for about half a year when I was going through a tough time. It was good to know that someone had gone through similar experiences and I was not alone in it. She pushed me to face key issues that people often seem to overlook or bury. To blend lives is never easy, it was good to have Maiko there for me as I faced the challenges not only in the blended family but in my relationship.
