Mission Statement:

The goal of the CoMamas Association is to teach stepwives and their families how to develop cooperative and respectful relationships so they can end their war and get along for the sake of the children.

Both graduates of the School of Hard Knocks, we have spent the last decade living and breathing, eating and sleeping, avoiding and confronting the ins and outs of mothering the same child and guess what? We made it! Not only are we still alive and kicking (no, not each other), we are here to say that we have co-raised one of the most incredible teenagers two mother have ever seen. What do we say to that? We say, "The proof is in the pudding."

Lynne Oxhorn-Ringwood, the ex-wife, received a Bachelor's Degree in Communication and went on to earn a Master's Degree in Communicative Disorders. She has been working as a licensed Speech and Language Pathologist for more than 25 years. Within the confines of her private practice, she has specialized in social and interpersonal communication.

Louise Oxhorn, the stepmother, earned a degree in marketing/merchandising from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and holds a Bachelor's Degree in Communication from the University of Buffalo, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She has also trained as a mediator, using her skills in this area to successfully negotiate business, as well as relationship, conflicts.

Dr. Krausz received her Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and is a licensed M.F.T. in the state of California. She received her Doctorate in Counseling from the University of Houston and is a licensed psychologist in the state of Texas. Dr. Krausz has worked with stepfamilies for over 25 years and is a strong advocate for the health and well being of children. The CoMamas asked Dr. Krausz to help them write and develop a program for improving the stepwife relationship, and to join them in reaching out to help stepwives everywhere.

STEPWIVES is written by Lynne Oxhorn-Ringwood and Louise Oxhorn with Marjorie Vego Krausz Ed.D., MFT.

The CoMamas are not licensed psychologists. Dr. Krausz is a licensed Marriage Family Therapist in California and a licensed psychologist in Texas. CoMamas workshops, emails, consultations and/or coaching is not intended to replace traditional therapy, but is based on the program developed by the CoMamas and Dr. Krausz and the book, STEPWIVES.
