Practice Information:
Success for Steps is a consulting agency serving the needs of today's stepfamilies. Founded by Christina Roach, the goal of Success for Steps is to recognize the experiences of those living in step relationships and assist in making those experiences the best possible. With this aim, Christina is committed to each and every one of her clients as evident in the services she provides.

Our passion is to help individuals, couples, and families make their experience in 'step' a successful one. We do this through providing education, awareness, and supportive counseling & coaching to help these relationships become stronger and thrive.

Whether you are a stepparent, step-grandparent, child, or biological parent living in step, Success for Steps works with you in finding effective solutions that fit your life. During her graduate studies, Christina Roach realized that traditional marital and family therapy models offered little to no emphasis on the unique dynamics of stepfamilies; what makes Success for Steps unique is that we have a distinct focus on stepfamilies.
