Are You Fully in Your Personal Power?

What is Your Source of Inner Power? 
Are You Using it Fully Enough to Shift from Stressed Out to Rising Up?

An Empowered StepmomTM is 100% committed to her path of inner and outer balance. She is grateful for all that makes it possible. She builds relationships with those who support her and her journey; knowing those people are lovely gifts in her life and vital to her wellbeing. An Empowered Stepmom is the result of a courageous heart, a desire to live with integrity, and the smarts to learn best practices for stepparenting and for coping with the challenges. Each Empowered Stepmom has her own unique blend of inner power sources that support her wellbeing.

As an Empowered Stepmom, You Will Choose.

  • Take ownership of your mental state.
  • Perceive stress as a cue to meet challenges.
  • Resist forcing outcomes or behaving reactively.
  • Step back enough to rest and reflect, thus encouraging your own growth.
  • Affirm yourself, especially when it seems no one else is doing it.
  • Grieve what needs grieving, and move forward.
  • Focus on what you have control over and respond strategically.

Do you relate? Do those commitments feel like the right way for you to move forward as in your life your best self?

If you are feeling challenged as a Stepmom, in deeply personal ways, you are not alone. 2 out of 3 stepmoms eventually leave. If you are in a safe relationship with someone you want to stay with, I want to help you become the 1 out of 3 who experiences the significant rewards of doing what works for stepmoms.

You Have My Full Attention

Have you ever fantasized about getting past the overwhelm and moving into full on strategy-mode but haven't known where to start or what could possibly work for you as a stepmom? 


The intuition that it is time to move into self-empowerment is why I am here. Would you like to have help focusing your energy in the direction of success as a stepmom rather than having to figure it all out on your own? 


Together we will target the areas that can make the most difference for your wellbeing. I cut right to the chase, because I have distilled the research, my own lifetime of experience in stepfamilies, and my work with clients into the 4 Power Moves that have been shown to save stepmoms. 


Stepmoms face special challenges (and opportunities) and that is my speciality. I love seeing Stepmoms move from despair to repair into the powerful mindsets that being greater joy and purpose to their lives.


It is my job to help you focus on what has been proven to work for stepmoms for greater peace, purpose, and wellness. It is your job to make the choice to refocus yourself toward becoming your most empowered self now. 


We can get acquainted in a free 20-minute call. 


If it is a good fit for you, you can choose the option that feels best for you: two 90-minute consultations that train you in the 4 Power Moves for Stepmoms to address a specific hotspot in your life right now. Or, you could gather friends who are stepmoms for a group workshop or the Sensational Life Retreat for Stepmoms.
