The first answers were put forth in Lofas' first book, LIVING IN STEP, McGraw Hill with Ruth Roosevelt in 1975. Lofas then went on to found the Stepfamily Foundation, Inc. in 1976. The rest is a history of work, research, a system for counseling, books and years of appearing on TV and in the press. She was lauded and heralded as the discoverer and founder of new stepfamily movement.

How We Work:
Standard psychotherapy is based on feelings.
Our work is based on actionable information, and management.
Individuation is the cornerstone of traditional psychotherapy…the taking care of the self.
Our focus is the couple.
In standard psychotherapy the therapist does not give answers or solutions.
The answers must come from within the client
In our work, the therapist is an expert consultant
