Divorce Coaching Services MN & WI
A divorce coach is like a mediator, in that they help people achieve the peace and calmness they are looking for. The difference, though, is that a divorce coach works with just one party, helping them get through the divorce process, jumping through hurdles, and making sure that the individual’s needs are met throughout the process. A divorce coach will help you with the whole process. Often working as a mediator as well, a divorce coach will help you communicate your needs while listening to your concerns and helping you voice them during your mediation sessions or court dates.
Because communication and compromise are at the heart of every mediation process, a divorce coach will advise you how to communicate your needs while also helping you compromise, allowing you to realize what is truly important to you and what can be let go. The goal of a divorce coach is just like that of a divorce mediator: allowing people to gain peace and move on with their lives.
A divorce coach will help you establish emotional boundaries with your soon-to-be-ex. We also enable you to make informed decision regarding the topics that will come up during a divorce, including custody, asset division, and spousal and child support. We also help you view your lifestyle and family and social interactions through an objective lens, so that you have the opportunity to better yourself and your life. We will provide guidance and help you come up with a plan (whether regarding parenting time, asset division, etc.) that you can bring with you to your next mediation session or court date.
Divorce coaching is not usually as extended as divorce mediation, as only one party is present. Divorce coaching, though, is exactly what you want it to be. We can help you focus on just the specific issues that you are having problems with regarding your divorce, while staying away from areas that have been worked out. A divorce coach, however, is not an attorney. We are simply here to help you get through the hurdles that a divorce presents. We can help you separate the emotional parts of a divorce from the business parts.
For most people, a divorce is life changing. Having a listening and knowledgeable ear about the process can help you tremendously. This is what a good divorce coach can do for you. When you feel empowered as you walk into your mediation or court session, you will feel confident and calm. And this confidence will spread to your children, allowing them to feel peace as well.
Experienced Divorce Coach
I have been helping people work through their problems my whole life, regardless of my career title. I feel that communication is very important and that many problems arise from a lack of communication. A journalism degree from St. Thomas has helped my become an even better communicator, and a Master’s in Health and Human Services has helped bring out my compassion. And as an attorney, I also have the legal background necessary to thoroughly inform you of your best options regarding you divorce. I understand the court process and can help you attain the peace that has been calling your name.
