My own journey

When I went through my divorce in 2012, I had no guidance at all. I felt all alone, scared, vulnerable, confused and far from my best self. It would have saved me a lot of money, time and heartache if I had a divorce coach with me through my divorce journey.

What can happen to any of us…

number 1

Like many women facing divorce, I was overwhelmed and panicked. I went into flight and freeze mode. I did not even know I was completely “triggered” and not able to make good healthy decisions. A divorce coach would have taught me about the fight/flight/freeze/fawn/hide trigger reactions and importantly, how to separate the business of divorce from the emotional chaos of divorce.

As a result, I would have learned how to calm myself, slow down, not be as reactive, and put my “smart productive thinking” self back in the driver’s seat where I desperately needed it.

number 2

Like many divorcing women, when my husband left, I was scared and thought, “How am I going to make it financially?” I was frozen in financial fear.  He was the breadwinner and controlled the economics of our family. A divorce coach would have supported me in learning about his, mine and our finances and helped me get organized around finances, money, and documents and perhaps even hire a financial advisor.

As a result, I would have felt financially empowered and would have been a savvy credible client for the attorney I did eventually hire.

number 3

Like many women going through divorce, I felt lost and asked, “Who am I now that I am not a wife or a couple anymore?” I seriously wondered what my future was going to look like. A divorce coach would have guided me to envision and create a new life on my terms. I would have championed and encouraged myself to believe in me.

As a result, I would have navigated the transitions and recovery of my divorce with courage, authenticity, resiliency, and empowerment and to show up with dignity as my best self.

This is why I became a coach. This is who I will be for you.
