Coaching is a method of guidance and training in which an experienced professional (a coach) supports someone (a client) in achieving a specific objective.
In the past, coaches were usually associated with sports. Every professional athlete or sports team has a coach (or coaches) who help them train for their sport so they can perform at their highest level.
In the context of divorce, a coach performs a similar function.
A divorce coach is someone who helps you understand and manage your divorce process so that you can get through your divorce better.
What does better mean? That depends on you.
For some people, doing divorce “better” means staying out of court and divorcing amicably. For others, doing divorce “better” means minimizing the damage their kids experience as a result of the restructuring of their family. Still other people consider doing divorce “better” to be saving time, money and heartache.
All of those definitions of “better” work. At the same time, some of those definitions conflict.
For example, if you want to minimize the damage that divorce may have on your kids, you may need to spend more time or money going through your divorce process. You’ll need to focus every decision you make on your kids, not on time or cost.
Even saving time and money can conflict. Sometimes, in order to save time in your divorce, you need to spend more money.
A good divorce coach can help you identify what matters most to you and develop a plan that is focused on helping you achieve your goals so that you can move on with your life.

A decision coach is a very specialized kind of coach who helps you do one thing: make a decision! In the context of divorce, a decision coach is someone who helps you decide whether getting divorced is really what you want to do.
While decision coaching is a TYPE of divorce coaching, it is so important, and so different, that it is really a completely separate kind of coaching.
A decision coach helps you do one thing: Make a decision.
While making a decision may seem relatively simple, when you’re trying to decide something as life-changing as whether or not to stay married, it’s not. Deciding whether to get a divorce can be one of the most gut-wrenching and paralyzing decisions you ever face.
A good decision coach can help you figure out what you really want (as opposed to what you SHOULD want). S/he can also help you identify what’s keeping you from going for what you really want. Then s/he can help you develop a plan that will get you out of indecision so you can actually DO something!
(NOTE: A good decision coach will NOT push you into getting a divorce OR staying married! S/he will simply help you make the decision you need to make so that you can start living your life.)

How We Can Work Together
If you are interested in working with me, either as a decision coach or as a divorce coach, just CLICK HERE. Then submit the form, and I’ll email you as soon as I can. (I’m only one person so it may take a day or two! Please be patient with me!)
If you don’t know what kind of coach you may need (ie decision, divorce, or something else): Don’t worry! We can figure that out when we talk.
Also, know that if you decide to focus on making a decision, and then you decide to divorce before your sessions are all complete, you can then switch your focus to divorce. Or, if you want to work with me on your divorce, then you reconcile with your spouse, we can switch the focus to working on your communication and your relationship.
The bottom line is that: You don’t have to have everything figured out BEFORE you start coaching! That’s what our work will be about!
Finally, remember this: Every journey begins with a single step.
Is it time for you to take that step so you can start moving forward?
