Making the decision to file for divorce is messy, emotional, frightening, and in the majority of cases, life altering. Yet, the freedom that can result…it is a wondrous new beginning. In fact, it is with great joy that I have observed many of my clients reinvent themselves after a divorce—spiritually, mentally, socially, professionally, physically.

Many have found the new loves of their lives; some have taken steps towards furthering their education and/or starting a new career; and, others have discovered new interests and hobbies or simply basked in their new-found peace. You may find that making a decision to leave an unhealthy marriage is your first step towards your wondrous new beginning, and I am here to help.
