I help people whose divorce feels like a living nightmare.
Even if the other party never changes, your world can shift from conflict to high-vibe.
Let me help you speed up your journey to the light at the end of the tunnel. You need someone with the experience and resources to get you there. I am a Harmonious Divorce Coach.

In a high conflict divorce, there are so many different people, organizations and authorities involved.  Family court is only one of them.  Here is a list of some entities you may encounter: Superior court, court of appeal, dependency court, bankruptcy court, child protective services, the police, the district attorney, child support services, opposing counsel, minor’s counsel, minor’s therapist, mediators, expert witnesses, depositions, court appointed therapists, court appointed realtors, CPS appointed medical teams, forensic accountants, social workers, and the list goes on.

I had a distressing divorce which forced me to navigate all the above.  I had no support and realized the need for someone with experience and resources to provide guidance. My divorce turned out to be a way to expand my emotional and spiritual life and take a different path.  I want to share what I learned with you.


My Experience and Focus

I went on a journey and learned the practical advice of many progressive experts such as Joe Dispenza, the HeartMath Institute, and others.  I spent years learning how to incorporate the spiritual aspects into the topics of divorce.  I also founded the nonprofit ResilientHeart and helped hundreds of adults and children learn to be empowered instead of dis-empowered by their emotions.  I trained and collaborated with organizations such as NAMI, Mindful Schools, Mental Health First Aid, FEMA, and many local charities.  My contributions were acknowledged by the Mayor and Councilmembers in Los Angeles.

In addition to an MBA, I have decades of experience advising high net worth and ultra-high net worth clients in over 10 countries. This helps me to understand very specific details about the financial challenges you may be facing with your personal, business, and legal financial obligations. All of them will be affected, even in a relatively simple divorce. In a high conflict divorce, there are possible financial ramifications not found in the CDFA (Certified Divorce Financial Advisor) textbooks. Just being aware of them can go a long way.

I have a respect for the attorneys and other professionals on your team and will work with them as closely as you wish. My coaching focuses on the emotional, the spiritual, and the many practical resources you need to navigate these difficulties.

Some people take a long time to heal, some never recover, some keep making emotionally and financially costly mistakes.  Your change can be rapid.  I navigated a path to emotional healing and clearer decision making.  I also learned how to create peace, direction and joy for myself and my loved ones.  I want to show you how to do that too.


How do you make decisions about so many high stakes issues?

A high conflict divorce is a series of high stakes decisions that sometimes have to be made rapid fire, with very little time, but long-lasting consequences. Panic, fear, anger, pain, frustration, helplessness, are common emotions, but not the emotions you want to base your decisions or actions on.

If you have the best legal team in town, they will still present you with large and small decisions that you, and only you, can make. Think of the benefits of knowing you are going to be navigating all this with someone who has been there, understands what you are facing, and has vetted a deep pool of resources you can tap into. Many of those resources are free or very low cost. I wish someone like that had been there for me. It would have saved me a lot of money, time, and worry.


Becoming Emotionally Whole

When children are involved, they can sometimes pay a high price.  If you have children, there are some very powerful ways to help them.  My 2 year old daughter became very distraught when custody changed in my divorce.  I realized that regardless of what goes on around me, I needed to be emotionally whole, for her sake. I focused on becoming an emotionally whole Dad. My daughter picked up on that right away.  As I worked on transforming myself, I watched her transform.  With expert help, the change was dramatic in only 4 weeks.  Being an emotionally whole parent is the greatest gift you can give them at this time.   In the midst of a divorce it might seem like a difficult task.  But with experienced help, you can make that transformation quickly.

My guidance is tailored for you. Based on a lot of experience and a deep understanding of your unique and challenging situation. It is shaped with the knowledge that, no matter how impossible and dark this time may be for you right now, there is a path to turning this into the start of an amazing and new story for you and those you love.
