Do you feel like being a stepparent is just HARD?
Well, I want to offer to you that I think it might feel hard to you right now because it is hard.
If you are feeling this way -- I get it. I understand.
I don't know everything but I do KNOW that when I was a new stepmom things were sometimes hard for me.
More than 20 years ago I went on a date with a coworker who had been married and he had kids. Fast forward a lot of years and I've been a stepmom for 20 years.
It wasn't always easy.
I did find my way to my version of my own happy blended family life.
Yay for ME! Right? What about YOU?
Today as a life coach I support, coach and empower stepparents through coaching and sharing my authentic stories so that your journey to happiness is hopefully much faster than mine.
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new. -Socrates
Amy is a professional and confident coach. She has great intuition and was spot on with all her questions. She helped me gain insight in what was holding me back from my goal. I highly recommend her!
I Believe That You Can Feel Happier
I believe that it is possible to be a happy stepparent.
Not in two decades, not when the stepkids move out, not when [insert whatever miracle you are waiting for may happen].
I think it's possible much sooner than than. Maybe even today.
Would it feel good to come home to a loving partner and family where you felt seen, heard, and loved?
When we decide to get married to a person who has kids most of us have a vision of our future happy selves in our happy ever after dream family.
Sometimes the reality of creating that family smacks us hard in the face.
It doesn't have to be this way. It is possible to be happy and calm in a blended family.
Imagine for a minute...

What Clients Say
I felt comfortable with Amy when I first saw her. I felt like right away I could tell her anything without the fear of judgment. She gave me practical tips and advice on how to navigate my situation. I'm more confident of how to tackle that issue head on when it comes my way. Thank you Amy for coaching me.
