Create the life you want
Getting divorced and feeling like you are starting over can feel overwhelming and daunting.
- What will I do to make a living?
- How will I afford my home?
- How will I navigate custody and handle not seeing my kids every day?
- What do I do when my kids are not with me?
- When is it ok to start dating again?
- When will things feel normal?
Getting a divorce can feel really lonely and isolating. Often in a divorce there is a “social divorce” where you lose shared friends to your ex-spouse, and a “family divorce” where you lose the family interactions with your in-laws.
Divorce can feel like you are on an island by yourself.
You talk to your friends and family, but you feel like they are tired of hearing about your situation. You are wondering when things will feel normal, whether you will ever find a new partner, or when life will feel “full” again.
You may have just finalized your divorce (or are getting close) and are getting tired of talking about it and dealing with it. Likely, you want to move forward with creating your new life but are not quite sure where/how to start. Maybe you need to go back to work after staying at home raising your child(ren) for several years. This is all completely normal and part of the process of divorce. You need to mourn your marriage, then take time to heal the wounds while slowly piecing together your new chapter in life. It takes time and is not something that can be rushed.
A divorce coach can help you move forward.
The benefit to working with a divorce coach is that you have a sounding board, someone who has your best interests at heart and will work with you to guide you to a place that you desire in life and can help you realize your goals. Many people put their goals to the side when they get married as they are focused on raising their families. This is a time to dust off those goals, dig deep to find your strengths and purpose, and get yourself out there. You can accomplish amazing things and build the life of your dreams.
Common Divorce Coaching Concerns
How can a divorce coach help me if I have already finalized my divorce?
A divorce coach is there for the beginning, middle and post-divorce to help you find your purpose. My goal is to help you find true happiness and build the life of your dreams.
Can a divorce coach help me get ready to date again?
You bet we can! We will work together to make sure that you are ready and in the right place to get yourself back out there by coming up with a plan.
I need to focus on finding a job – I have not worked in years. Can a divorce coach help me with that?
Oh yes we can! I specialize in helping people find their passions in life and achieve their career goals. Even if you have not worked in years, we can work together to find a career that you are excited about and get you out into the workforce again.
This new chapter is all about YOU and what YOU want to do next in life. It is about making your life the life you have always wanted and making those dreams come true!
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.
