It's true no two stepfamilies are alike, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach. Let's discuss strategies for your unique family dynamics.


Learn from my mistakes, my wins, and my research. I will challenge you, push you, and help you grow. Together, we'll propel you forward toward peace.


You will walk away from our session feeling empowered to tackle your struggles head-on and have the tools you need to inspire lasting change.


Talk with someone who gets it in a private forum. There's no need to censor your thoughts or feelings because this is a truly safe space.


I’m Kristen!

And I am basically the poster child for stepfamilies. When I was born, I had a half sister from my mom’s first marriage. My parents divorced when I was 2, and I experienced multiple stepparents and divorces throughout my childhood. My parents had a very high-conflict relationship, and I was caught in the middle.

In college, I studied Sociology and went on to become a Certified Life Coach after marrying a divorced dad, befriending and running a business with his ex-wife, and overcoming many misconceptions, mistakes, and social stigmas.

My life is blended. I see you and I know your struggles, because I’ve lived through them. I am eager to help you move through the drama and achieve peace and happiness in your stepmom role.

Frequently asked questions

We will meet on Zoom, a virtual meeting platform. You’re welcome to join with video or just audio if you prefer.


You should still be able to access my Zoom link from the anywhere in the world, but if you experience any issues with that platform, I’m happy to try Webex, Skype, or FaceTime/phone call instead.
For the time difference, I set my availability to run Monday through Friday 9 AM to 9 PM my time. If that timing doesn’t work, I’m happy to make an exception and schedule outside of normal hours to align our availability.

I request some background information from you when you schedule so I’m prepared before we even meet. During our time together, we will dive into your feelings and struggles, and I’ll provide actionable insights and tips you can begin implementing right away. We’ll develop a plan together, and I will follow up our session with an email recapping our conversation.

Send me an email at [email protected], and I’ll see if I can accommodate your schedule!

Never! Purchase your sessions and use them whenever you’d like. 1 week, 1 month, or 1 year from now: this is support when YOU need it.

Our clients say

“I highly recommend stepmom coaching!! I feel much less crazy after talking things out with someone who understands the stepmom plight. I also got some great ideas on how to set boundaries and help take control of situations to keep my peace.”
"Thank you so much for everything you do. Our 2 sessions have made a hugely positive impact on our day-to-day lives. I can’t wait for our next hour… your input is invaluable and both of us are always wondering what Kristen would have to say about that! Much more so than our couples therapist!”
“I felt so refreshed and recharged after our session… I am excited for our next session! Your voice has been in my head since Friday and it's truly been a game changer. I have already noticed positive changes in my household just within a few days because of me changing MY attitude/approach. Reading your email gives me even more reminders, strength, and reassurance on how to maintain a positive incline. I am impressed with how much detail you retained from our conversation!!In conclusion, MAN YOU'RE GOOD!!!!”
