Barb Goldberg of The Evil Stepmother Speaks invites you to the stepmom retreat you’ve been waiting for…


This is the ultimate transformational program for stepmoms. If you are a new stepmom or have never studied stepmom skills, this retreat is for you. We designed it for a small group of stepmoms to come together and have a wonderful retreat experience where they learn how to positively transform their current experience. 

We know how hard it is to be a stepmom and all the challenges you face, so we give you an experience where you can learn how to create a stepmom life that brings you happiness and is more in alignment with who you truly are. We also give you the time and space to come together and heal past wounds, let go of resentments and start a renewed stepmom journey together.
