hopeWould you like to use the challenges you’ve experienced as a stepparent to help others?

Would you like to share your experience as a stepparent with others in a way that’s helpful and healing?

Have you always wanted to help others, but weren’t sure exactly how?

Are you looking for a new purpose in life?

With a divorce rate of 60-70%, stepfamilies are in desperate need of help, but many therapists and coaches are not properly educated to effectively serve these families.

This is where YOU can make a difference.

  8. Advertising on my StepmomHelp.com Facebook page (over 9K followers!) and this Stepfamily-Help.com website, as being a Stepfamily-Help.com certified coach, along with your contact info and location so new clients can easily find you.
  9. A paper copy of your official certificate.
  10. After certification, you’ll continue to have direct access to me for business and client consultation.

Jenna is highly knowledgeable about stepfamilies and how stepmoms can set themselves up for relationship success. The program greatly increased my knowledge of how a stepfamily works, as well as common problems and solutions.” – Melissa Josue, Certified Stepfamily-Help.com Coach, Certified CTA Life Coach

How Does it Work?

After you register, you’ll receive a confirmation email along with some prerequisite reading. I’ll mail out your training materials and after you receive them we’ll schedule your first session.

Because sessions are one-on-one, they can be scheduled at a time that works for you, and at intervals that you’re comfortable with. Each session will be an hour long, conducted via video conference and will be recorded and sent to you for future reference.

Taking Jenna’s certification program was exactly what I was hoping it would be. I really enjoyed working with her!” – Amber Lee Elder
