Packages and Rates

your coaching investment

Perhaps you've already figured this out, but going through a divorce is an expensive process. Many factors contribute, and it's very difficult to predict how much it will cost. Some factors include

  • the amount of property to divide,
  • how cooperative the parties are,
  • how complicated the child custody arrangements will be,
  • congestion in the courts,
  • the area of the country,
  • whether you're in a small town or a large city,
  • the attorneys' experience and aggressiveness. reports that the average attorney fee for a divorce in the United States is $10,000.

Divorce coaching can cut that cost significantly. I charge much less than the typical $300 to $400 per hour that your attorney charges. You and I can together handle many of the time-consuming tasks that clog an attorney's workload, like helping you understand the process, organize, make decisions, and prepare for mediation and trial. You can already see that the cost-saving potential is significant, but I am available to you in other ways that your attorney is not set up to provide you:

  • help in learning effective communication and co-parenting skills,
  • help in learning to put aside the "story" of divorce so that you can get along with the "business" of divorce
  • act as sounding board and accountability partner, constantly challenging you to be your "best self," 
  • help you rediscover your power, confidence, and emotional independence, and
  • help you develop a strong financial footing for the future. 

The less time you need to spend with your attorney, the more you'll save. 

Free discovery session

Making the decision to commit to a coaching schedule can be difficult, especially when you're in the throes of depression, anger, or frustration. I understand that. I also know, and I think you do too, that you'll get the best results from a consistent presence. That's why I offer a free Discovery Session and monthly packages that encourage you to commit the time necessary to make real progress.

We'll spend the hour-long Discovery Session exploring your needs and goals and how I can help. If you decide that you'd like to embark on this journey toward stability and peace, we'll talk about packages and pricing. I will ask that you make a minimum one month commitment.

Most of my work with clients is done either over the phone or over Skype. Consequently, I can work with anyone virtually anywhere in the world. If you are in the Dallas, Texas area, I'm happy to meet with you in person if you prefer.
