No matter how smart you are, how much money you have
in the bank, how successful you are or how much you love your kids.
There’s really nothing that prepares you for divorce.
Let’s face it parenting all on its own is tough. When you add divorce to the mix, it feels like everything (and I mean everything) comes undone.
Hands down one of the hardest parts is watching your kids hurt.
And when they’re hurting it’s and dealing with the guilt that
we’re the ones who have caused their heartache.

What is coaching?
In short, coaching is a partnership between me and you.
While we may dig deep, unlike therapy, we won’t spend time taking apart the past.
It’s a chance to put the oxygen mask on yourself so you can gain immediate support, insight and feedback. Coaching helps you re-connect to your best self so you can be the parent your kids need during this very tough time.
We’ll focus on what lies ahead, how to get life back on track and figure out what it will take to create a new normal for you and your kids.
I can help you:
- Gain perspective and stay connected to how this feels for your kids.
- Learn how to handle difficult divorce problems (from how to tell your kids to what do when your Ex won’t let up)
- Tap into the things you’re doing right and use those strengths to overcome current challenges.
- Re-establish a “new normal” for you and your children.
I also have a lot of experience dealing with a wide range of divorce related issues such as: beginning stages to years down the road, dealing with discipline differences, coparenting, parenting plans, single parenting, long-distance parenting, high-conflict situations, helping children transition between two homes, dating after divorce , blending families, remarriage, bonus parenting, late in life divorce, adult children of divorce.
We meet by phone. Where we start is up to you.
While every situation is different, usually the parents I work with fall into two categories.
- Those who want to invest in longer-term change (3 to 6 months) or
- Those who want focused support (usually not more than a session or two)
Once you decide to work with me, we schedule a mutually convenient time to meet by phone. During the first phone call, we’ll spend some time discussing what you want and what you can expect from me.
Together we will identify roadblocks and develop strategies for dealing with those issues. The next step involves taking action. At the end of the session, you’ll leave the call with ideas you can put into practice as soon as you hang up the phone.
While my professional background is diverse, coaching sessions are not designed to deal with therapeutic issues. I also don’t provide legal advice or testify in court.
Getting the right kind of help is important. If you have additional needs or if I feel another coach or professional would be a better fit for you, I won’t hesitate to recommend other options.
