Taking Stepmoms from Surviving to THRIVING, one STEP at a time.

Stepfamilies don’t have more or less issues than traditional families. They're just different. Therefore, stepfamilies need different set of rules, tools and skills in order to live a cohesive family life.  

Claudette Chenevert, known as "The Stepmom Coach" provides advice, support and guidance to women who enter the “Instant Family” realm, feeling overwhelmed, misunderstood and isolated.

When Claudette became a stepmom in 1990, she soon realized just how different this was going to be compared to being a single mom.Claudette needed some answers not only for herself but for others. She became a Master Certified Stepfamily Foundation Coach as soon started her practice so that other women could find support and help for their relationships.

When she is not speaking to women’s groups, or conducting teleseminars, she offers group and one-on-one coaching to women around the world.

She is a contributing writer for Xpanded Family Magazine and Stepmom Magazine and is the author of "31 Days to Better Communication" and "Words of Hope, Inspirations and Wisdom for Stepmoms" Claudette is an active participant on many Facebook groups and has her fan page at
