OUR SERVICESDivorce coaching for working women

Colleen is committed to guiding working parents who are divorcing through their divorce journey so that it is not as bumpy a ride as she endured. She started DivorceMD, LLC, in 2015 after juggling a full-time job outside the home, caring for three small children and a devastating high-conflict divorce.

She is passionate about sharing the knowledge she gained as a divorce client and imparting that with you to empower you, validate your experiences and keep you organized.

Colleen's Approach

Colleen’s straightforward and compassionate approach will help:

  • Keep you organized. The process of divorce entails pulling many documents – more than you think! Her strategies for breaking down the divorce process into manageable steps will save you time and headaches.

  • Hold your hand. Getting divorced is often not linear. Inevitably, you’ll have well-intentioned voices of friends and family whispering advice in your ear. Colleen is a sounding board and a steadfast advocate.

  • Move away from intense emotions and adopt a goal-oriented mindset for a more successful outcome.

We protect your prioties and your loved ones.

We put people, over business

FAQFrequently asked

A Divorce Coach can serve as a mentor throughout the divorce process and assist you with separating the emotional stress from the business side of divorce.  A coach will spend time discussing the business aspects [JE1] and goals that you want to achieve to have a more peaceful life during and after divorce.  On average, we can save you between 10-20 hours of time with your lawyer per month. 

Think of a divorce coach as your thinking partner. As your personal guide through the divorce journey, a Divorce Coach can help get you to the finish line by keeping you organized, introducing strategies for effective communication with your ex and your attorney, and saving you time while you juggle your personal and work lives. The coach will also work with your legal team.
If you are a victim of abuse, alert your divorce team immediately. If you have a lawyer, inform them of any arrests, history or domestic abuse, or court filings involving domestic violence. Also, seek the help of a domestic violence professional  for help with setting up a safety plan to keep you and your children, if applicable, out of danger before your divorce proceedings begin.  A Divorce Coach who is experienced with complex cases can share more information.
The information that we offer for you will give you crucial financial, real estate, parenting, and emotional information to help you navigate the process of divorce and the family court system.  We offer examples of templates for court forms and organizational tools.  We will also provide tips to help you to understand what it means to write a Joint Parenting Agreement.  We also give you information on different types of legal help in divorce.  (Example- collaborative divorce, mediation, and unbundled legal services, Pro Se, and fixed fee legal services.) [JE2]
If, after an initial 30-minute free consultation, you decide hiring a DivorceMD coach is right for you, we request a $750 retainer fee, which covers five hours of coaching (at $150/hour). The first four hours of your retainer is non-refundable.  

We offer an array of resources that will help you understand the financial and emotional aspects of divorce. We believe that the longer you are able to stay out of the family court system, the more control you will have in the process and your outcome.

The most critical documents in a divorce are your Joint Parenting Agreement (if you have children) and your Marital Settlement Agreement (the financial agreements to finalize your divorce). We will help you understand your options and how to make these legal agreements more understandable and thereby improve your divorce outcome.

We work with clients all over the country through videoconferencing, phone and email. Our clients are also offered access to a diverse network of divorce professionals all over the U.S

Mediation involves the couple and a neutral third-party (divorce mediator). The mediator facilitates conversations between the couple to reach decisions about topics including finances and parenting time. The resolutions from these conversations can then be incorporated into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). Both parties may hire attorneys independently to review the MOU and to draft the separation agreement. Working with a mediator can be much less expensive than carrying out this process with attorneys. The differentiator for mediation is that the couple is working together to define the outcomes that will work for their new norm, rather than allowing a judge, who doesn’t know either you or your child/children, to make decisions on their behalf about parenting time and the allocation of financial resources.

Collaborative law involves the couple, their two collaborative-trained attorneys, possibly a divorce coach, and sometimes a mental health professional. The clients sign a contract that outlines the collaborative process and states that they will collaborate until a final agreement is made. The only court appearance by the couple is the final appearance date. This minimizes costs and time spent in court.

Please read “Do I need a lawyer to do mediation?”
Parents can help their children feel more relaxed when they are with them by saying things like, “When you are with Mommy, we focus on things that are happening here and that it is our time together.” Tell your child that the divorce is not their fault and remind them that they are loved by both parents. Keep your personal relationships healthy and use your time together to focus on living a positive life and supporting your kids.

Children in Divorce: How to Minimize Trauma
It all depends. If you choose mediation or a collaborative divorce, your ability to minimize court costs and unnecessary court appearances will help minimize your expenses.

Responding from a steadier, educated place will reduce pain in the long run. Before you decide to file for divorce or respond to a divorce filed against you, consult with a Certified Divorce Coach or trusted professional who has extensive knowledge to help you get started on the process.

It depends. If you choose either mediation or collaborative divorce, you will retain the most control over your divorce timeline and outcomes.
