When you first got married, you may have expected to live “happily ever after.” We sure did.
We have experienced all aspects of marriage, divorce, single parenting, remarriage and stepfamily life. The feelings of loss, anger, sadness, regret, fear, and frustration are so strong because they involve the center of our heart and lives – our loved ones, our children, our families, and our future.
That’s why we created The Bridge Across in 2006. It has been an incredible journey!
Today, Jayna Haney and The Bridge Across are known for their unique counseling and coaching services specifically designed to help couples, families, children, teens, and adults deal with stressful and complicated situations in nuclear families, single parent families and stepfamilies.
