Welcome To The Stepfamily Foundation
Who we are and how we work
The Stepfamily Foundation, Inc., headquartered in New York City is a not for profit founded in 1975. Our mission is to assist you in making your family, as it is now, function well. We have created a successful management system for the stepfamily.
We address the issues of organization, partnership, couple strength, conflict of loyalties, roles, discipline, the ex spouse and much, much more. We also serve faith based organizations and individuals.
We are the only organization to devote ourselves solely to these issues for over 30 years. We have identified the classic dynamics and have established proven solutions. Our work is supported by substantial research involving more than 3000 people.
We counsel from Hawaii to Jerusalem by telephone. Local New York clients, and those booking intensive sessions, are in person.
We provide counseling for adults and children in these areas:
- Blending family
- Custody Change
- Pre-Nuptials & post nuptials
- Parenting Agreements
- Co-Parenting Agreements with ex spouses
- Counseling - For first families
* Dr. Lofas is the senior authority on the stepfamily. Her written work dates back to 1976. She has been called the "wise woman of step."
