(Because it is, right?!)

Are You Feeling Isolated During Divorce? 

Of course you are! 😩

One of the hardest aspects of divorce is feeling disconnected from friends and family at a time when you most want the love. Sometimes, telling people what you need and what you’re experiencing just feels like too much.

In those moments, wouldn’t it be nice to have a free, private support group where you could connect with others who are also navigating divorce?

If you’re looking for a safe and welcoming community where you can both give and get encouragement and understanding, come join my Better Than Before Divorce™️ Facebook Group!

Everyone deserves a safe place to rediscover your strengths, share support and connect with others who are also looking to get through divorce and come out BETTER on the other side!

(And, I check in often to answer questions, offer TLC and share special offers🎁)

Join today! I’d love to see you there. 💖

For blog posts and articles visit my website, and you are always welcome to reach out with questions. I’m happy to help!

Today’s question is from me to all of you.

I have had a few requests for group coaching. Does this appeal to you?

If so, I’d love your opinion on what would be most useful for you:

A. Online or in person (or a hybrid)?

B. What topics would be of most interest (emotional support, the legal process, coparenting, etc.)?

C. Would you be interested in combining the coaching with my online course on emotional support so we can discuss the topics and personalize the exercises? 

D. Anything else you’d like to share? I’d love to hear it. 

Here I’ll share some of the books, websites, podcasts and experts to help make your journey a little less shitty!

Have you heard of Collaborative Divorce? 

It’s a great option to consider as you look into what process is best for you.

  • Collaborative Divorce is a better alternative to a litigated divorce. It is a team approach to divorce using a friendly and Collaborative process that keeps you in control of your future, and maintains what is most important: family, finances, and emotional health.
  • Collaborative Divorce is a method for dissolving a marriage where participants work with a team of professionals to craft their own agreements. Clients work together in a respectful way, keeping in mind the importance of protecting their children and others who may be involved out of conflict. Decisions are made by the participants without the involvement of a judge or other third-party decision maker.

Here are just a few of the benefits of a collaborative approach:

  • Child-and family-focused
  • Flexibility and creativity
  • Convenient – on your schedule, not the court’s

Importantly, you can find professionals for all aspects of the process who are collaboratively trained, including lawyers, Certified Divorce Financial Analysts (CDFAs), realtors, lenders, coaches and mental health professionals.

Questions? I’ve completed Level I & II Collaborative training, and would be happy to talk with you. You can also visit the CCDP website to learn more.
