I was one of the lucky ones who always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. As a child, I said I was going to become a teacher. As I pursued a career in education and made my way through college, I felt as though teaching was my true calling. Throughout student teaching and into my early career, I still felt strongly that teaching was what I was always meant to do.
Then I met this handsome, red-head and fell in love. He came as a package deal with two beautiful girls. Early in our relationship, we had to navigate some challenging situations connected to the unique dynamic of having children and an ex-wife. This was a wake up call for me.
I grew up with divorced parents as well as a stepmom and stepdad but when I was on the other end of a stepfamily, I realized I had a lot to learn. I started to recognize the many challenges that came with stepfamily life and I knew I had to seek support. I threw myself into a journey of discovery, learning, growth, and development.
Throughout my personal journey of growth, I felt drawn towards a new purpose and calling. The calling of being a Stepfamily Coach. I want to help others navigate this challenging role. I want to empower stepfamilies to make a positive change. The research I’ve done shows the divorce rate for second marriages is around 67%. I’m determined to defy the odds and teach stepfamilies to navigate their roles successfully.
Teaching has always been my calling, but now I have been blessed toward another calling and purpose of being a Stepfamily Coach.
As a Coach, I will help my clients navigate their role, focus on problems and solutions, help them overcome challenges, learn new skills, implement effective strategies, seek balance, and empower them towards positive growth and change. My clients can learn to embrace their role while feeling empowered and proud to be a stepparent.
