You can get through this difficult chapter and realize not only how strong you are but how amazing your new life can be
Are you contemplating or going through a divorce, wondering what will happen with you and your kids, how you will navigate shared custody, and/or a new financial situation?
• Are you wondering what next steps you need to take?
• Are you trying to figure out how to have the hard conversations with your partner and kids?
• Are you fearful about how this will all turn out causing you to have trouble making even the smallest decisions?
• Are you wondering which experts (attorneys, therapists, mediators, etc.) you will need to engage with and how to even find them?
• Are you emotionally and mentally drained?
• Are you unable to focus on what needs to be done?
• Are you worried about how you will get through all of this to know you did the right thing in the end?
If you are contemplating or going through a divorce, you likely feel overwhelmed, emotionally distraught, and not sure what to do. Your life was just turned upside down, but you still need to be there for your kids, show up for work every day, and try to function while figuring out what comes next. You may be feeling a mix of emotions, overwhelm, angry, sad, and/or confused. This is NORMAL.
Divorce is not something we ever go through life planning for or thinking we will go through
When it happens, it knocks us off our feet and we are left wondering how on earth we got here. You may feel like you don’t need coaching. You might not want to spend the money or time on it because there is so much else to do right now. You have your kids to tend to, your work, your life is still very much happening.
No one starts off knowing “how to get divorced” and how to navigate all the unknowns
Asking for help and having someone to lean on, especially during a time of a stressful transition, is really important. Knowing when to ask for support is one of the biggest acts of kindness you can do for yourself.
A divorce coach will save you time and money
Divorce coaching will guide you to make the right decisions so that you will be able to look back and know you brought your best self to the table and made the best decisions you could. You can move forward from here showing respect for all involved including yourself. Often, people going through a divorce spend $500.00 per hour talking to their attorneys about their ex and how upset they are, about all the details of their relationship rather than focusing on the actual divorce. I have been there. Divorce is not cheap.
My goal is to help you get organized and focused on what is important
I will help prepare you for your meetings with your mediator, financial planner, attorney and/or family therapist.
Common Divorce Coaching Concerns
Do I really need one more expert to talk to?
A divorce coach supports, motivates, and guides those going through divorce to assist them in making the best possible decisions for their future. A divorce coach is recognized by the American Bar Association as an integral part of the divorce process.
I don’t know if I can afford divorce coaching.
Divorce coaching will save you money in attorney fees and help you make decisions faster.
Do you coach women and men?
Yes, I coach anyone going through a divorce who needs support, motivation, and a helpful guide.
Why do I need a divorce coach?
Divorce coaching helps you put your best self forward so that you can look back with no regrets and feel confident in the decisions you made.
You can get through the process of divorce feeling that you not only brought your best self to the table but came out the other side feeling empowered with a new sense of self and purpose.
There is no getting around it. Even when “amicable,” divorce is a challenging process to go through. I have experienced it personally, and it doesn’t just end when the papers are signed. When going through a difficult time, we could all use support and guidance as we go down a new, unknown path. As a divorce coach, my job is to help women and men overcome obstacles, gain confidence, and find their inner strength. My goal is to help you find your best self while going through life’s greatest challenges. Wouldn’t it be amazing to come out the other side feeling empowered, able to achieve your goals, and create a happy new chapter in your life?
I offer coaching virtually worldwide and in person in the San Francisco Bay Area. I embrace differences in age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, socioeconomic status, and physical abilities.
