Why choose Step-by-Step Coaching?

A Seasoned Professional Here to Guide You


Are you tired of fighting with, or quietly resenting family members?

Are you ready to replace conflict with compassion and understanding?

You can strengthen and improve your parenting and partnership at the same time!

Whether it’s working with teenagers,
step families, biological families or couples, I use proven methods to help you grow stronger as a couple and build caring and respect within your step or biological family.

The five most common areas of family conflicts:
- Use of time and money
- Family core values
- Communication
- Rules, privileges
and consequences
- Respect and acceptable behavior

Setting agreements in these areas with my help will allow your family to be more peaceful, your children and stepchildren to be happier and more likely to succeed as adults.

I've worked with families and youth for over 20 years, as a social worker with traumatized children and families in the foster care system, as a Therapeutic Foster Parent and a trainer of other parents, as a Family Court Mediator, and as a counselor and educator with elementary, middle and high school students.

A long-time practitioner of mindfulness-based meditation, I bring an interest in spiritual traditions and a passion for the arts as therapeutic tools.  Perhaps most importantly, I'm the proud parent of two wonderful stepchildren!
