​​​​​I will help you create the ideal divorce for you and your family.

As a seasoned family law attorney with a Ph.D. in psychology I understand the connection between emotional needs and how to best make legal decisions. With the proper strategies in place, you can create a settlement agreement that is a win-win for both you and your spouse.  

Coaching will help you manage and resolve the difficult process of getting divorced. Emotions impact clarity of thought and

decision making. Through our one on one sessions,  I will help you consider options, your goals, needs and wants. We will  design an approach and develop an action plan for reaching settlement of financial and parenting matters.

A successful divorce is not one where you “win” money and parenting time. A successful divorce is one that resolves matters so that you can get on with your life. Ideally that means with your fair share of resources and equitable parenting time. And if you are really fortunate, a cordial enough relationship with your ex so that sharing the children is not stressful.

Divorce is not just a legal process. It is a personal process of transformation. You must make important decisions when you may feel emotionally depleted and uncertain about the future, maybe you are angry or scared. Or perhaps you feel strong and certain, yet want to carefully consider your personal and legal options.

You are going to be single, living without a partner. Perhaps you have children and need to learn to be a part-time or full-time single parent. Maybe your work life needs to change. These personal matters may have legal implications.

Divorce coaching can help. Please contact my office today. 

Whether you are litigating, mediating or using the collaborative law process, I will assist you in navigating your divorce.

Divorce coaching will help you:

  • Clarify your intentions and desired outcomes
  • Set goals
  • Maintain your emotional well being and manage stress
  • Improve communication skills
  • Make the best choices for you and your family
