I am a personal growth coach and am a member of the International Coach Federation. I have been blogging since early 2016 with the intention to create a community where separated/divorced parents feel encouraged and supported through all aspects of their lives! ‘Cause who can’t use more of that?
I want to help improve the world – one family at a time! And contribute to the conversation about separation and divorce and how families can best navigate through it, in all stages of their lives – so that the children (and parents) can live a happy and satisfying life, from this day forward!
Have you felt alone and isolated, while going through your divorce?
I certainly have! Your marriage ending is a very isolating experience in a lot of ways. You need someone in your corner, and a community of people who know exactly what you’re going through and can keep you moving in the right direction – one step in front of the other!
Do you feel like you can’t confide your feelings with anyone who truly understands?
Also totally normal - - and goes hand in hand with the feelings of isolation by the way! I knew hardly anyone who was separated or divorced when my ex and I split. None of my close friends could really relate to what I was going through. I really craved connection with people who could understand the pain and process of splitting up a family. I mean, I have friends from university, from work, from every other aspect of my life, so why not this one too
I did truly miss having common ground with friends and family, when it came to struggles and successes that are inherent in raising children in a two family household. And since I wish all my friends and family long and satisfying marriages – I decided to start a blog to help connect parents in a similar situation to mine. And coaching and writing have blossomed from those humble beginnings!
Having been through Separation myself, I am passionate about helping other parents through the HUGE transition that is inherent in separation/divorce! I want you and your children to come through this with a renewed sense of peace and confidence in where your life is headed! Plus continued co-parenting support.
Because it’ll get way better than it is today, I promise, it'll be OK!
My primary goal when my marriage ended was to ensure that our children continued to thrive and feel a sense of belonging and security within the family, which can be tricky when their new reality is two homes. This is obviously an ongoing commitment. I love coaching others to help families take this hard experience and transform it into an opportunity to make the most out of the rest of their lives!
It takes a village to raise children, and in the 21st century this includes a virtual village!
Wishing you all the best,
