Carron Nicks, MS, JD, CDC Certified Divorce Coach®

What is Divorce Coaching?

As you go through this difficult time, would you find it helpful to have a thinking partner, someone to help you ferret out what's really important? 

No matter how "easy" the divorce, no matter which party initiates the break-up, neither comes out the other side unscathed. Emotions run the gamut: grief over the demise of the relationship, feelings of failure, anger and frustration, fear for the future, relief and happiness. 

As a divorce coach, I work with clients before, during and after the divorce (and other long-term relationships) to smooth the way and help them find emotional independence, confidence and financial security.

My goal is to help you understand the process of divorce, sort out your concerns, identify your needs, articulate your wants and learn the skills necessary to design the next phase of your amazing life.

Whether you are contemplating divorce, slogging through the court case, negotiating the settlement details or weighing your next moves, I can help. Call, email, or use this form to contact me. We will schedule a complimentary one hour Discovery Session. The Discovery Session will give us a chance to discuss where you are, where you want to be, and how we can structure a program to get you there. You might be surprised at what we can accomplish together.

As your divorce coach, I want you to emerge stronger, more confident and more secure than you ever imagined. Here's a partial list of the things we can do together to get you through this difficult but life-affirming transition.

emotional support

to help you ...

  • identify your needs and wants during and after the divorce and help you envision what you want to accomplish in your divorce and in your new life,   
  • practice effective communication and negotiation skills to reduce antagonism, temper strong emotions and foster healthier post-divorce relationships,
  • move beyond the "story" of divorce (which keeps you mired in the past), so that you can effectively manage and complete the "business" of divorce, and
  • develop a parenting plan and employ practical co-parenting skills to safeguard the parent-child relationship for all parties. 

Functional support

to help you ...

  • bring order out of chaos,
  • investigate career options and conduct a job search for those re-entering the workforce,
  • save valuable resources by serving as support for venting, questions, and brainstorming about the divorce process, and searching for an attorney and other professionals,
  • identify, gather, organize and interpret financial records or determine when to bring in a financial professional like a forensic accountant, certified financial planner or tax lawyer, and
  • assess financial needs and resources, and develop a budget that will serve you during and after the divorce.
