I’ve been divorced since 2007 and never thought it would happen to me. When I first started thinking about ending my marriage, I was hesitant to discuss my marital issues with friends. I was raised with the understanding that “what happens in a marriage, stays in a marriage.”
I sought help from various sources, but what really fostered my breakthrough and opened my mind to new opportunities was listening to other people’s stories. Every day people facing the end of their marriage have shared their experiences with me. They were willing to come forward because they believed by doing so they would be helping others through the process.
Their stories revealed to me that divorce is a normal part of the life cycle – despite the stigma attached to it in many circles. As a divorce coach and mediator my mission is to break that stigma and to help men and women end their relationship with respect and dignity so they don’t feel they’re going through divorce alone, so they’ll understand the process and their options and so they can be confident in the decisions their making.
