Is being a stepfamily harder than you imagined?
Do you ever think, "This isn't what I signed up for"?
You’re trying to blend kids, households and family rules.
You’re finding out you don't agree on how to raise the kids, deal with the ex or co-parent in dual households.
As the stepparent, you do feel like you fit in.
And you’re exhausted, frustrated and lost.
Nothing has worked, and you’re starting to wonder if it’s already too late.
(What have we done? Are we ever going to agree on things? Can we really fix this?)
As a parenting coach, Amy's advice is fairly straightforward:
Be THAT parent.
Be that parent who:
Sets a curfew.
Expects and enforces respectful behavior with confidence.
Gets tough when it's necessary.
Isn't afraid of your kids being mad at you.
Acts like the parent and NOT the child's best friend.
But in a blended family, it's easier said than done, right?
Becoming a stepfamily takes intentional
planning and parenting strategies.
But you don't have to figure it all out on your own!
It’s time to to make an action plan and change the way things are going in your family.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect when I work with you?
After your free discovery call and initial payment, we’ll have our virtual or in-person meeting. I will listen more than I talk at the start, because your concerns and frustrations are the priority in our work together. I’ll ask you about your family, for example:
Your kids’ names, ages, and personality types
The dynamics and environment of your family (for example, if you’re a single or dual household)
Your primary concerns and what your intentions are for our work together
Over the course of our sessions together, we'll talk about values, parenting styles, communication with your kids and discipline strategies. I’ll give you a digital or physical copy of your workbook activity sheets so that you'll have time to reflect on your answers together and complete exercises that will lead you to a shared vision.
Everything is tailor fit for your family, you'll experiment with things and we will constantly tweak things along the way.
By the end of the program you will have put together a firm foundation for your family. You'll be parenting with intention, purpose and an end goal in mind.
Does this work for single parents, too?
YES! Amy focuses on building a strong family foundation. The power lies in the strength of each member of the family (kids included). Single parents will gain the same amount of clarity of vision and values, goals and expectations as couples or co-parenting parents.
Is this for stepcouples only?
No. This is for anyone who wants to strengthen their partnership in parenting. Even if you are co-parenting in separate households, the consistency in messaging and expectations is a gift every child should receive.
Is this counseling?
No, this is about empowering you with skills and knowledge. Our work together isn't about digging up the past, it's about taking things from where they are to where you want them to be. Just like a sports coach, I am here to help you add tools to your parenting toolbox.
What is the cost of the coaching package?
This investment in your family's future success (including all consultation sessions, printed materials, and email support) is $850.00. (payment plan available)
