It is less about the past and more about the next choice, but that doesn't mean we ignore past wounds. ~Tricia Powe
About the Co-Founder and President, The Stepfamily Strategist and Coparenting Mediator, Tricia Powe:
Tricia is a lifetime stepfamily member. From birth to 38 years married and counting, every day of her life has been immersed in stepfamily dynamics.
She recalls speaking to the judge as a child. Then, after experiencing the win-lose court system through her husband's co-parenting cases, she knew there had to be a better way for conflict resolution than getting trapped by the family court system's tag-team services and fees that can lead to bankruptcy in many cases.
Tricia is a visionary of what can be, an out-of-court support trailblazer to help you get there, and she insists that you can succeed -- even if you are UNblended. She'll show you how.
"Not all stepfamily situations need a diagnosis or an attorney to gain co-parenting solutions." ~The Stepfamily Strategist and Co-Parenting Mediator, Tricia Powe
Service providers who are deniers of malicious, alienating behaviors cannot be as effective. And to assume there is always a bad parent, is to add heat where it is already hot enough. You need balance.

UPDATE: Stepfamily Systems' TAFCASS (The Academy for Coparenting and Stepfamily Stability) has been incorporated into the Membership programs.
MISSION & VISION BRIEF:
Build capacity for co-parenting and stepfamily stability through four pillars:
Connect | Collaborate | Educate | Create to Motivate
Connect members to a vibrant, uplifting, and flex-structured community of parents and stepparents as well as to additional resources for legal services or mental health concerns, academic support to include preK - college, financial well being, and faith through the Braided Families option for Christians.
Collaborate and build strategic alliances and partnerships with like-minded professionals and other child and family advocates, businesses and organizations to reach the goal of building a Blended Family Resort where services expand into family fun.
Educate After acquiring the tools and know-how that lead to transformation through Entry Point or Accelerator Advantage, Stepfamily Systems by Tricia Powe Books and More provides a low-cost maintenance membership to help beat back chronic litigation that drains energy, time, and other resources from the family.
Members enjoy a substantial savings for Stradiation sessions with the goal of reducing at-risk behaviors and maltreatment of children, spouses (current and former), and one's self.
Create to Motivate - Scenario-based growth modules and stories encourage dialogue, inspire confidence, and expand ability to navigate challenges and conflict. And families are encouraged to create shared memories through the use of the arts, sports, entertainment, and more.
To help parent-stepparent couples identify their family's blend blockers and address their co-parenting challenges with an attitude of carefronting* instead of confronting.
