About Me

_DSC9714.jpg

Hi There,

I am a recently retired attorney with a whole lot of life experience to share and a whole lot more to do!  I am a mother to three amazing humans, and had a successful legal career for over 30 years. For my second career, I help navigate people through a separation or divorce from a long-term marriage and give them the tools to grow into their new life.

I have experienced the unique challenges we face at this point in life when everything we thought we could count on is changed. The result of this change does not need to leave you depressed or regretful. Nor does it need to destroy your family. I can tell you it is possible to Grow With Dignity from the experience, and forge your new path.

The issues at this point in life are so very different than earlier in a marriage with younger families and careers. Even as a seasoned attorney who has helped many pro-bono clients and friends through their divorce, when it came to dealing with my own process, I was stuck. It was so difficult to move forward with confidence through all the business details and decisions that needed to be made.


The grief that you experience at this stage of life is unique and deep. I kept repeating to myself –and anyone who would listen – “This wasn’t the plan.” The pain this brought, and the idea that I had to make a new plan at this point, was overwhelming. I knew there had to be a better, more organized, and positive way to accomplish the uncoupling of a lifetime of memories and “things”.​

 

So, as part of my own recovery and transition, I trained to become a CDC Certified Divorce Coach® and CDC Divorce Transition and Recovery Coach®. I now have a myriad of tools to share with you that will help you through those details, decisions and grief. 


I will listen to you, work with you through decisions, organize you for the process and, help you find your way down your next path.

Ready to get started on making a new plan?

I Can Help You

Are you considering or navigating the end of a long-term marriage? 

These endings are never what we expected when we said our vows.  They can happen for so many reasons, and sometimes for reasons we can’t even articulate. No matter the why, the reality is the same – it is hard and lonely, and your life feels out of your control.  

 

As your Divorce Coach, I will walk down the path, by your side, as your advocate, your sounding board and your partner. I will give you the confidence to know that you can Grow With Dignity. 

How I Do It

I will help you ask and answer important questions you need to consider.  I will think with you and help you pivot from your story and grief to a positive, intelligent mindset that will allow you to make the important decisions you need to make.

 

I am not pro divorce. If you have not yet made the decision to divorce, I will listen and explore with you what the path ahead may look like if you get divorced.

 

As your Divorce Coach, I want the best for you – and will support you in whatever decision you make.

What I am Not

I won’t give you legal or financial advice—but I can recommend people who will, and I will help you get organized for your work with them.

 

I am not a therapist or counselor. Mental health professionals play an important role in our lives. They help us “uncover” some of our beliefs and why we have them and then work with us to “recover” from those beliefs that no longer serve us.

 

As your Divorce Coach I will help you “discover” how to make the best possible decisions for your future.
