I wrote Better Apart: The Radically Positive Way to Separate (HarperCollins) with the hope of meaningfully and positively impacting the lives of people going through divorce at any point of the process.
I am so excited to be sharing with you what I’ve been working on for the past few months. After writing the book, I felt compelled to do more. I wanted to offer something to go alongside the book, something that would take people deeper, provide an additional level of support and to help people navigating separation on a larger scale. And so, the Better Apart Master Class was born!
After growing up with divorced parents, the last thing I ever thought I would become is a divorce lawyer. I was so sick and tired of the subject that if you would have told me that one day I would become a top divorce lawyer, mediator, and highly sought after divorce coach I’d have fallen off my chair. But, after a divorce court clerkship in New York City, I learned very quickly that I had a very strong calling and ability to help people move through and beyond their divorce with power, grace and dignity.
Looking back on how my parent’s did things well, and how their divorce served them as they moved forward, here’s what I realized, regardless of how messy your life is at any moment, with some simple, accessible practices, your divorce can be transformative. It can actually be the launchpad for you to access and develop greater internal presence for yourself and your family.
The Better Apart MasterClass is a six-week, self-paced online course to help you uplevel your mindset and thrive, through and beyond your divorce. This course is designed to be a companion for you to have by your side, beyond your lawyer’s office or your therapist’s couch.
With videos, emails and journaling prompts and exercises, as well as the option to add on a live group call, the Better Apart MasterClass is everything you need to guide you into the next chapter of your life.
In the course, we dive into the 5 elements of the Better Apart Framework - Patience,Respect , Peace, Clarity, and Forgiveness. In just six weeks, you will feel lighter, calmer more peaceful and clear on the life you want to live moving forward.
If you’re going through separation, or have separated from a partner and don’t quite feel back to yourself, I would love for you to join us.
The Better Apart MasterClass will help you to…
Learn mindfulness techniques so that you can show up as the best version of yourself for you and your family
Learn to navigate your relationship with your ex (no matter how much they drive you crazy) so that you can create a peaceful, happy and healthy environment for you and your kids
Re-write your divorce story so you can go from feeling fearful and anxious to empowered and in control of your life
Powerfully engage with your inner voice and begin to be more present for yourself and for your family.
Move through guilt, shame and anger so you can release negativity and live the happy and prosperous life you’ve always dreamed of (yes, it truly is possible!)
It’s time we SMASH the stigma and start feeling better about ourselves, and our lives. Our internal stories shape our lives and inform our children about who they are in the world. When we feel good, we are more present for ourselves, and for our families.
You might just be focused on surviving right now. You might just be trying to keep your head above water.
Or maybe you’re a parent just focused on helping everyone around you get through this transition time.
But you know what?
It’s time you helped yourself. You deserve this support. You deserve to have a thriving, happy life, through and beyond your divorce.
