Blended and Step Family Coaching

The Blended and Step Family Resource Center offers coaching sessions to blended or step family parents.  These sessions are held by telephone and $150 prepaid.  We also offer packages for a discounted price.
We also focus on those recovering from divorce and ready for a new beginning, along with dating coaching and relationship coaching.

  • Coaching is different from counseling.  Coaching is more direct, and less intensive than counseling.  Our coaching sessions focus on your immediate needs and concerns.
    Most couples find that a weekly check-in with a blended family coach keeps their step family issues in control and creates a positive and healthier environment for everyone in the family.
  • Each session includes one 50 minute session of coaching, Coaching is more effective when both husband and wife are present.
  • We also offer co-parenting coaching- if there are issues between the biological parents. All parents involved (stepparents, biological parents, and engaged couples) should be included in these sessions
