Blended families can be messy.
But they can also be beautiful.
Get the stepmom help you need to advocate for yourself, set better boundaries, and be present for the beauty your life has given you.
Step-momming is HARD ya'll! I know personally.
That is me and my blended family on the right.
I talk to Stepmoms all the time who struggle with many different complexities:
Dealing with a challenging ex
Behavioral issues with the kids that seem impossible to solve because people aren't on the same page
Differences in parenting styles with partners
Custody issues and more
Regardless of the specifics, the challenges are similar. Having gone through this, I am called to provide stepmom therapy, coaching, and support.
You can't pour from an empty cup.
Take care of yourself first.
- Someone very wise
If you need stepmom help,
we hear you loud and clear.
Here are just some of the things I hear from Step-moms!
"I feel so bad that I don't look forward to the kids coming over"
"I don't know how much to insert myself and how much to let go of"
"My husband is constantly talking with his ex and it makes me feel crazy"
"The ex causes constant drama and I hate seeing my husband go through what he has to go through"
" The kids have no responsibility and it makes me feel crazy"
Step-moms have a hard time feeling like other people understand what they are going through.
Their mom friends don't quite get it, their single friends definitely don't get it, and there's a lot of outside pressure and expectations that they feel burdened by.
This is why Stepmom Therapy and Stepmom Coaching can be so helpful!

Stepmom to 10 yr old boy
The Step Mom Strong support group gave me skills to be able to build a relationship with my stepson. It gives me a place to turn when i need advice and things get hard. Ladies who understand the struggle. Nathalie was a life/relationship saver. I couldn't be happier that i joined her group!"
Stepmom to ages 8 & 11
I can tell stepmom's who haven't had this experience that it's so worth it! Nathalie is the person who put me on the path I've been following the past couple years. She taught me that a lot of the expectations I thought were on me, I was putting on myself. There's a lot of love and support - but also some straight-talk, no BS reminders that more often than not, we alone are responsible for the state of our lives!
Stepmom to ages 12 & 13
Each week, we focused on different aspects of ourselves and how to bring back boundaries and personal needs... things I hadn't even considered since I joined my blended family.
Who was I before? What mattered to me? It is OK to retain those things while loving this new situation. So much of what was said made me appreciate my blended family (including my partner's ex) and gave me the tools to negotiate myself within my current situation. I'd do any of it again!
