Navigating a divorce is hard. There’s just no getting around it. Even in the most amicable of splits, there is an endless list of tasks to check off, new life skills to learn—and perhaps most overwhelming of all—the challenge of completely reinventing yourself and creating a new life.
Most women feel like the divorce process offers them a chance to dive deeply into their dreams and passions again, reinventing themselves to become the women they always wanted to be. But unfortunately, many find themselves stuck trying to deal with the practical details instead feeling free to look toward the future.
Trust me—I understand just how difficult it can be when you’re mired in mundane little details, trying to figure out which way is up! Picturing where you want to be next week, let alone in the next year, can feel downright impossible.
The good news is that you don’t have to go through this all alone.
A divorce coach is your ally during the divorce process, providing emotional and practical support so you can make decisions and create a new life that is satisfying and fulfilling.
When I was getting divorced, the thing I wished for most was someone who could take me by the hand, listen to what I was going through, and provide practical help and advice.
Now, as a divorce coach, I’ve become that helping hand. My biggest responsibility is providing space for my clients to be heard, acting as a sounding board and helping them plan a path toward healing and reinvention as they navigate the divorce process. But I can help in plenty of ways, including:
> Navigating the divorce process
There’s a reason that divorce is considered one of the top five most stressful events a person can go through—not only are you completely reinventing your life, you’re having to legally undo your old one at the same time. And all of that is complicated by lots of emotion and heartache.
I’m not a lawyer, a financial planner, or a therapist—so I can’t advise you on the legal ins and outs of your divorce or offer therapy services—but what I can do is listen, help you identify what you want out of the process, suggest potential solutions to problems, and help you navigate your emotions so that you emerge with a fresh outlook, ready to start down the path of healing and self-discovery.
> Creating a plan for your new independent life
Solo life comes with a lot of new responsibilities—figuring out where to live or how to make the rent, keeping your car maintenance on schedule, or just learning what to do with yourself on a kid-free Saturday night… just to name a few. Learning how to plan for and handle all of these things are part of living a new, independent life.
As someone who has already walked the walk, so to speak, I’ve got a pretty good idea of what you are or will be going through. I can help you gracefully handle the practical considerations and emotional overwhelm that goes along with being a one-woman show, and find the deep satisfaction of learning how to handle it all yourself.
> Supporting and co-parenting your children
I don’t know a single divorced mother who isn’t dedicated to making the best choices possible for the wellbeing of her children. But in the midst of general upheaval, legal decisions, and making it through the day-to-day stuff, knowing exactly what they need and what to take into consideration for the future is difficult.
I am here to help you through both the immediate practical considerations as well as those that could come up in the future.
> Learning how to be YOU again and finding new meaning in your life
Perhaps the single biggest challenge for divorced women is learning how to feel joy again. Far too often, we spend our time taking care of everyone else around us, and don’t leave anything for ourselves. And while dating offers a chance to find new love, it can also be challenging to feel independent enough to move on!
I think it’s critically important to find a supportive community where you feel like you belong, rediscover your passions, and learn how to dream about the future again. As a divorce coach, my goal is to help you find clarity and create an action plan to rediscover your dreams, courage, and vitality, heal from your divorce, and embark on a new life full of promise.
Are you ready to feel joy again, reclaim your independence, and chart a path toward healing and recovery? I would love to help you as you take those steps.
