Our Approach

We use a solutions-focused psychoeducational approach in all of our services. This means that stepfamily members are empowered with knowledge and skills to create solutions for their stepfamilies throughout the years and to best support themselves and one another when depression, anxiety, and other psychological challenges arise in the wake of stepfamily dynamics.

Getting to Peace

A Straightforward System You Can Use to Stay on Track with Expert Solutions

This system is used at home and during sessions with counselors and with other helping professionals.
