Green Living with Tee

Feb 20, 2023

Stepparenting can be a rewarding and life-giving experience for men and women at all stages of life. However, anyone who has experienced the process of step-parenting and living in a blended family knows that it comes with profound challenges. Our guest today is helping stepparents transform from family chaos into meaningful and harmonious co-parenting by applying both her life experience and extensive training into coaching and therapeutic techniques that are helping to heal wounds and form lasting bonds.

Maria Natapov is a Step Parenting Expert and Trusted Advisor to Divorce Professionals, Financial Advisors, and Parenting Coaches. Maria offers a caring and playful coaching approach where clients feel energetically held and empowered to joyfully and confidently blend their families.  

Maria knows from experience that stepparenting isn’t something you pick up from scrolling the internet or crowdsourcing your friends. She believes that forging a relationship with your stepchild means learning to find your voice and hearing theirs.

As the daughter of divorced immigrant parents and a stepparent herself, Maria understands blended families' communication and connection challenges and the vital importance of healing pain and preventing further harm by establishing innovative parenting support systems.

Through her signature 4-step energy-focused process combined with Rapid Resolution modality, Maria helps families transition from chaos to harmony. She enables stepparents to strengthen their values, foster partner alignment, create trust with stepchildren, and enhance the community with birth families by building on their existing skills, experiences, and strengths. 

Maria has helped numerous blended families foster more harmonious family dynamics through her VIP Stepparenting Breakthrough support model and her podcast, Synergistic Stepparenting. To learn more about how to work with Maria, visit her website at
