Divorce Coaching

When I was going through my divorce, I remember how frustrated, lonely and overwhelmed I felt. Despite being an attorney and familiar with the legal system, I found the divorce process to be confusing, painful and exhausting. There were so many things I wish I had known then, and now as your divorce coach, I want to spare you the mistakes I made and help you become empowered and confident through the divorce process.

I will help you navigate the complex legal process, understand your options, make grounded and clear decisions, save financial resources, and avoid unnecessary pain, stress and mistakes. My background as a lawyer and my training in The Adult Chair® model give me the unique ability to help you make sense of what your legal team is telling you while also caring for yourself spiritually and emotionally through your divorce. With me in your corner, you will have confidence that someone is always looking out for you as you move into your next chapter with hope for the future.

Before Divorce

Many people seek out attorneys and therapists as they figure out if divorce is the best solution. However, lawyers provide legal advice and move individuals through the legal process. Therapists, while trained to sort out causes of the emotional struggle, do not have the specific training of a Certified Divorce Coach (CDC).

I will help you as you navigate the difficult and complicated decision of whether or not to get a divorce. Making decisions at a time when you are emotionally swamped is overwhelming. I can help you understand what to expect and the options available to you should you decide to divorce, including pro-se (do-it-yourself divorce), mediation, collaborative divorce, or litigation.

With no judgment and while tapping into The Adult Chair® model for emotional clarity, I will:

  • Educate you about options for divorce and the pitfalls of decision-making
  • Help you understand and navigate the legal process
  • Explore options for the marriage, whether to work on the marriage, separate, or divorce
  • Provide important resources and reading materials
  • Assess counseling needs, if applicable, for spouses and children
  • Prepare you for the journey of divorce if that is the decision
  • Assist you in assembling the best divorce team if if necessary
  • Help you manage your emotions

During Divorce

Are you currently in the middle of the divorce process and feeling stressed, panicked and lonely? If so, you are not alone. It’s not uncommon to feel lost in the wilderness of the legal process while dealing with the intensity of emotions that divorce brings.

Divorce comes with a range of emotions and changes to nearly every aspect of life, from housing to friends to healthcare. During this time, you are expected to parent, manage relationships with friends and family, and maintain productivity at work when in reality, you are simply struggling to survive. You might feel alone as you try to share your struggles with family and friends, and they are either exhausted or unavailable. You need someone in your corner who you know is your person, fighting for you each step of the way and there to be a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on when you need it.

During divorce, I will help you navigate the complexities of the legal process while also walking with you as you move forward into the next chapter in your life. I will help you understand your options and what each step is, make grounded decisions, heal emotionally, learn how to co-parent, and how to have healthy relationships with yourself and others.

I will:

  • Provide valuable communication assessments to help you effectively communicate with spouses and lawyers

  • Organize and gather documents

  • Be your thinking partner and sounding board, as we rationally think through decisions that can have life-altering impact

  • Identify and screen professionals and expert resources, eliminating the stress and work that choosing the right professional partners can bring

  • Work with you to understand the cycle of grief

  • Prepare you to be a better client for your attorney, resulting in efficiency of legal fees and saving you money

  • Encourage you and coach you to view the big changes in your life as a “new journey”

  • Help you maintain relationships with children and family

  • Attend meetings and other commitments with you if requested

  • Be your champion and be in your corner start to finish, celebrating big and small wins, and most importantly, helping you gain clarity, confidence, and courage

After Divorce

Whether the ink is barely dry on a newly-filed divorce decree or if your marriage ended years ago, divorce can still affect your everyday life. For many people, moving on from divorce is not easy. While you cannot rewrite history, you can write your own new story. Divorce does not define you.

Whether you’re dealing with post-divorce custody challenges, navigating life as a single or dating person, or learning to heal and move forward into a brighter future, I’m here to help you reclaim your life, discover who you really are, and step into the next chapter that’s waiting for you.

I will help you:

  • Set boundaries with your ex-spouse

  • Solve issues involving communication and parenting time

  • Understand the cycle of grief

  • Develop successful parenting partnerships, including working with your co-parent

  • Set short-term and long-term goals with a plan to reach them

  • Begin new routines after divorce and establish a vision for the future
