After a marriage or partnership ends, starting over with children from previous relationships can be extremely difficult. This is a major reason why a second union has more than a 65% chance of ending within 5 years.

But you have the power to beat the odds and see your family thrive!

It takes effort, but with dedication, you can learn the methods to create peace and harmony in your home — in as little as 10 weeks —

and start to heal the past hurts that get in the way of being an amazing parent and partner

so you can have lasting love instead of more heartache (and a costly divorce!)


Stepping Up

A 10-Week Program to Create More Love and Less Drama In Your Step Family – and save years of struggle!

In our weekly group + bonus individual sessions we will:

    • identify the behaviors and mindsets that interfere with connection and respect among ALL family members.
    • Pinpoint the parenting and relational styles that are getting in the way of peace and causing conflict and chaos
    • Transform past hurts so they no longer sabotage your relationships
    • Learn what to do and say, and what NOT to do and say, so that everyone’s needs are met, and conflicts are handled more successfully

This program will provide an invaluable opportunity to take your growth as a couple and family to a new level. Drawing from my 13+ years as a stepparent, over 25 years of working with families and children –as an accredited high school educator, mediator, social worker, and therapist, and decades of my own inner journey exploring a variety of wisdom traditions, I have developed the Stepfamily Blueprint to help families not only build strong connections with their stepchildren but also reignite love between partners, and lead your family to focus on what really matters–creating a sanctuary in your home where everyone feels valued and loved.

Here’s what’s in store:

1. Develop a deep level of self-understanding–-about your partner’s and your own parenting, attachment, and love styles.

2. Change lifelong patterns that sabotage intimacy and trust.

3. Learn new mindsets and ways of relating so that you can fully enjoy your time with your stepfamily.

4. Become skilled at keeping your cool and finding the right words.

5. Create a vision and strategy to have the family you’ve always wanted!

6. Email & text support throughout the program.

7. Guest Experts on financial and legal matters

BONUS 90 minute private session for the first 5 people
or couples who sign up and pay in full.

The Stories of Success

“Edina helped our family when another counselor told us divorce was the only answer. She taught us how to communicate and have a better understanding of ourselves, and presented us with the tools we needed to build a stronger foundation, which in turn created stronger bonds between us.

When we started, our son was going down the wrong path and our family was broken. I can say that I don’t know where we’d be without Edina’s guidance. Our son is now 16, doing well in school and has made amazing progress..from an angry, aggressive, weed smoking, lying stealing kid to a sober, helpful, loving, caring, social, more responsible, respectful and mature young man. Choosing the right counselor transformed our life and we can’t thank Edina enough for being there for us during our time of great turbulence and pure emotional chaos!! She was always there when we needed her with personalized care and helpful words of wisdom.”

Edina has been our family coach for several years… Her coaching has helped me raise my kids with so much emotional intelligence that they claim to be therapists for their friend circle.

I have also incorporated her techniques at my workplace, which has helped my employees feel supported. Our family has a healthy foundation of life skills and values due to our coaching sessions. Working with Edina has kept kept our marriage together and strengthened our relationship. We highly recommend everyone to be part of step by step coaching and shift their mindset.

Preeti, parent and medical professional

You were always very inviting, friendly, nonjudgmental and both my wife and I felt very comfortable with you. Your knowledge of the Gottman Method and the way you implement those methods really helped us after seeing multiple counselors with little to no success. You gave us the tools we needed to have a happy, thriving marriage!

Calvin, police officer and stepparent

After being raised by parents who didn’t communicate effectively, I found myself in the same situation. I was neer able to express myself in a way that led to effective resolution when I was angry or hurt or frustrated. IN addition to helping us understand all of the Gottman principles and what contributes to a successful relationship, Edina taught us critical communication strategies that have allowed me to actually share my feelings in a way that doesn’t alienate my partner. After 3 months of working with Edina, we were more connected with each other than we had been in a long time and I felt more loved, appreciated and understood by my partner.
