Getting a divorce can be a shock the the system. Kids, friends, relatives, holidays and work are all effected by the decision, and on top of all of those stressors there is the loss of the relationship itself. Good or bad, it has defined who you are for as many years as you were together and it can all be overwhelming. But a lot of people do it, have been through it and have popped out the other side in a different place, surviving, thriving and diving in to the next chapters of their lives.
The goal of this divorce mentoring program is to link woman who have been through the process and who have worked hard at redefining and reshaping themselves and the reality in which they live with woman who are just beginning the process.

I began this divorce mentoring program because I saw there was a direct need for woman who were just beginning the process to be supported and assisted through this overwhelming transition process. Meanwhile, those who were best suited to help them were woman who had already been through the transition and had come out the other side in a better place than they could have imagined when they had started the process.
