Why do I need a divorce coach?
I have a lawyer, so why do I need a coach too? Your lawyer is your advocate in the court system. The lawyer is representing your needs. My job is to develop a concrete understanding of what those needs are so that you can effectively communicate your needs to your lawyer. A lawyer’s time is expensive, so a coach prepares you to make use of your lawyer’s time in the most efficient manner. Having a coach can save you money!
Organize Your Thoughts. I listen carefully between the lines, to assimilate your thoughts, ideas and goals. I organized your scattered thoughts, vague ideas, and aspirations so they become concrete concepts that you can commit to.
Get Your Finances in Order. Although divorce feels like an emotional process, you can’t lose sight of the division of assets and income distribution. I make sure you have an understanding of your finances and plan for financial security to set you up to thrive when it’s over.
Manage Your Relationships. We are all hard-wired for connection and divorce can be lonely. Set boundaries in unhealthy existing relationships. Find peace and harmony with those around you.
Together we develop a strategic plan to get you where you want to go. We break it down into manageable steps.
Get the Support you Need! Navigating through a divorce is one of the most challenging transitions anyone can face. Getting the support you need, gaining perspective, protecting yourself and your children requires strength and commitment. Getting the support you need at a crucial time can ensure a better outcome, save money on lawyer fees and reduce the pain of transition and the fear of the unknown.
Manage Stress. Divorce is stressful! Stress hormones inhibit your immune system and leave you susceptible to disease. Learn to manage the most stressful moments and maintain stress reducing activities through a difficult time.
Make Decisions. In a divorce, you are inundated with one decision after another. Your lawyer needs to know what you want most out of your divorce, so you need to know what you want. Develop a framework within which to make difficult decisions. Get a concrete understanding of your personal values so you stay true to your objectives throughout the process.
