Show Notes

Tracy Poizner is a parenting coach and the host of the weekly Essential Stepmom Podcast. She is a biological mom and a stepmom and has been through it all, from long-distance parenting to parental alienation, legal difficulties, mental health issues, total loss of contact and full-time physical custody. After finding the light at the end of the tunnel, she wanted to share her experiences with others who were still behind her on the same path. Tracy has a special perspective on emotional healing and how to meet our own personal needs as stepmoms in the everyday chaos of this challenging lifestyle. She helps stepmoms and families minimize conflict and disruption in their lives and find calm, peace, harmony, gratitude, respect and affection and achieve justice in the face of divorce and custody conflicts.
