Who are we?

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 Mission Statement

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.

The Difference at Success for Steps®

As a Stepfamily Coach (certified through the Stepfamily Foundation), Christina Roach is specifically trained in the understanding and the resolution of those dynamics that make the stepfamily different from the biological family. She has also received advanced clinical training for working with stepfamilies through the National Stepfamily Resource Center, the Alabama Community Healthy Marriage Initiative, and the Florida Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. This specialization enhances her ability to work effectively with clients in 'step' relationships. Christina received her Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling, is a Liscensed Mental Health Counselor (#MH11532), National Certified Counselor (NCC #260799) and Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC #906); as such she is versed in family systems, counseling techniques, marital therapy and stepfamily methodologies.

That’s the Difference at Success for Steps®! Stop trying to force a square peg into a round hole by relying on traditional intervention models which do not address the highly fragile stepfamily and call Success for Steps®.

Working with Christina Roach

Through her work at Success for Steps®, Christina works with individuals, couples, and families experiencing stepfamily and relationship concerns; women's issues; self-esteem issues; life transitions; GLBT issues; stress and anger management; and personal growth concerns.
