About me

I met my husband speed dating. 

 

On our first date, he told me he had 4 stepkids. 

 

On our second date, he picked me up from the airport and I was hooked. 

 

He was a package deal – one man, 4 kids. No big deal, right?

 

In retrospect, l had NO IDEA what I was getting into. 

About me

I used to drink alcohol to cope with my stepkids...Until I found coaching

This is my story: I met my husband speed dating. 

 

On our first date, he told me he had 4 stepkids. 

 

Not immediately opposed, I decided to take things one day at a time. 

 

On our second date, he picked me up from the airport and I was hooked. 

 

He was a package deal – one man, 4 kids. No big deal, right?

 

In retrospect, l had NO IDEA what I was getting into. 

I’m Kristin Lindell, life coach for stepmoms and a stepmom of 4 wonderful stepkids.

Let me be clear: I used to feel terrible around my stepkids. 

 

When I first got married, I didn’t know what to do, or whether the problems I had with them would ruin my marriage. 

 

Before coaching, there were: lots of tears and arguments; a general sense of anxiety and dread; weight-gain and sleep problems (due to too much numbing out with food and alcohol).

COACHING SAVED MY MARRIAGE, and MY SANITY

Through my coach, I learned: 

 

How to stop dreading my stepkids and love them unconditionally, so that I was no longer avoiding them and hiding from my family and my life 

Disciplining my stepkids is no big deal –  I now know how to discipline now from a place of love, with no drama.

How to create a strong and intimate marriage with my spouse, one that can ride the ups and downs of stepfamily life.  

Any drama with the ex-partner is actually 100% in my control – and I can determine exactly what I want our relationship to look like.

I can help you love your stepkids & strengthen your marriage.

As a stepmom of 4, I understand exactly how you feel – ignored, unappreciated, jealous, resentful – and I was able to get better with a simple 5-step coaching tool that I now teach to all of my clients. 

 

And trust me, you will not find this tool in any book, podcast, blog or magazine for stepmoms. 

 

By teaching you this tool and my easy-to-understand process for applying it, I will help you enjoy your stepkids, make your marriage last and ultimately, get your life back.

I love working with stepmoms just like you.

I am you. I know all you’ve done for your stepkids. I know that you really want to make your marriage work and I know deep down you just want to have a cohesive family life – one that you actually enjoy and don’t dread half the time. Because you deserve it. 

 

There’s nothing more rewarding for me than watching my clients transform their relationships in their stepfamily. I can help you do the same and it’s so much easier than you think.

I overdeliver for my clients.

I make sure my clients know everything I know and exactly how I changed through a series of one-on-one coaching sessions, online coaching support, lessons, and daily homework

 

My clients have more support than they could ever need to help them make permanent changes in their relationships with their spouse and their stepkids.

Testimonials

I've had the pleasure of working with Kristin and I can't recommend her coaching sessions enough! She has helped transform my relationship with not only my stepkids, but also my relationship with my husband, as well as my relationship with myself. The tools she works with you on and teaches you help in so many areas of life! She opened my eyes to a lot of things that were right in front of my face but I was unable to see! I'm so thankful I had this experience ❤️ I recommend coaching with Kristin for any and all stepmommas out there!
Working with Kristin was such a great experience! I appreciated the safe space she created for me to discuss my feelings and some of the struggles I face. She pushed me to think differently, and take control of my emotions, and she did it in such a kind and non-judgmental way. I feel so much more in control of my life because of her coaching. She’s professional, knowledgeable, and a true pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Kristin as a life coach. You will see yourself change for the better because of her guidance.
The most significant change I experienced was recognizing that I have choice in how I show up in my relationship with my step-daughters. I feel much happier and freed up from the victim mentality that I was falling into. I would tell others that coaching with Kristin has empowered me to take my life back by focusing on my thoughts and the choices I am making vs. focusing on what others are doing.
