Description

Nationally recognized family law attorney, mediator and award-winning podcaster, Susan Guthrie is at it again! After guiding countless numbers of people through the perilous world of divorce—and speaking to a podcast audience of over 4 million listeners—she’s bringing you the “The Divorce & Beyond Podcast” to help you thrive in your life BEYOND divorce!

Episode Date
Let’s Get Radical: Deep-Dive Self-Care to Get You Through Your Divorce with Intuitive Healer, Holly Hughes, on Divorce & Beyond #262
41:34

On this week’s episode, Host, Susan Guthrie, welcomes Holly Hughes, an Intuitive Healer, to discuss tips for taking your self-care to the next level when facing divorce or any significant struggle! 

Most people going through divorce feel numb or devastated. It’s also not uncommon to lose sight of who you are or were as your marriage comes to an end. While there are many answers to help you heal, sometimes the answer is in the form of self-care. 

Holly Hughes joins Susan Guthrie for an enlightening conversation about self-care and how it starts with being aware of your own needs.  You can’t take care of anyone else (your children, for example) if you aren’t taking care of yourself first. 

In this episode, Holly and Susan take a deep dive into many forms of self-care. Self-care does not need to be an insurmountable task - it can look like coloring, listening to music, or dancing, - simply take small steps in your day to make yourself feel better.  

Holly Hughes is an intuitive energy healer, speaker, and author of the book, “Real Not Perfect: How to Become Your Happy Authentic Self.”

 Conversation Golden Nuggets include: 

  • When you create a pattern of self-care, those who love you and see the benefit, for you and for them, will encourage it
  • Experiencing a moment of joy may help you define what is hurting and needs healing
  • Part of self-care includes putting your phone down!
  • Start your day with kindness to yourself 
  • Sometimes, self-care requires you to say, “No,” to certain people or things in your life
  • Crying is good. Wallowing, however, is not.

Self-care can be simple and yet still have a lasting impact. Listen to this episode to hear how to take small steps towards radical self-care, today!

Set Yourself Free with Forgiveness with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, “The Divorce Doctor” on Divorce & Beyond #261
43:36

The Divorce Doctor, Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, returns to the Divorce & Beyond podcast! Join Dr. Elizabeth and Susan Guthrie, Esq., for a conversation about the greatest gift that you can give to yourself – forgiveness.

Forgiveness is a topic that everyone, divorce or not, needs to know more about because it is so powerful, yet so misunderstood. When the topic comes up, it can often sound like nails on a chalkboard. But, did you know that there are demonstrable mental health benefits to forgiveness?  It has been shown to elevate mood, and guard against anger, stress, or even depression.  Also, when you seek to forgive, it can have positive effects on all facets of your life. 

Dr. Elizabeth joins Susan for an impactful conversation about how to forgive yourself (and others), let go of resentment, embrace compassion, and create a new beginning. Forgiveness helps you let go of a past that no longer serves you, and helps you move toward a more joyful future.

Dr. Elizabeth Cohen is the CEO and founder of the online divorce course and membership Afterglow: The Light at the Other Side of Divorce. 

Golden Nuggets from Dr. Elizabeth Cohen include:

  • Dr. Elizabeth shares the amazing story about forgiveness that inspired this episode
  • Forgiving is a process - it’s not linear,  it’s not fast;  it is work
  • Stay away from JADE: Justify, Argue, Defend, and Explaining
  • Forgiveness and resentment are not about the OTHER person, they are about YOU. You have the power to shift how you feel about the other person
  • We acknowledge there are some things that are not forgivable - such as criminal acts or sexual assault
  • You don’t have to forgive a perpetrator - but you may be able to release the power of resentment in your life
  • Forgiveness is about your future

This episode is an invitation to give yourself a chance to live anger or resentment free. Listen to give the gift of forgiveness to yourself today!

The Incredible Tale of One Mom’s Successful 10-Year Battle to Be Free of a Narcissist with Tina Swithin on Divorce & Beyond #257
53:03

This week, Tina Swithin, author of Divorcing a Narcissist: One Mom’s Battle, re-joins Susan Guthrie, Esq. on The Divorce & Beyond podcast.  Tina shares her 10-year journey to protect herself and her daughters from an abusive ex-husband and her mission to help other women do the same! 

In this episode, Susan highlights the value of Tina’s books, work, and journey.  There are so many lessons to be learned from her ten-year battle in a high-conflict divorce.  One of the most enduring lessons was how hard it was to protect her children’s safety and best interests in the family court system. But with tenacity and creativity in bringing proof about her ex-husband to the court, she was able to finally end her court battle and have a positive outcome. 

Tina Swithin is the author of Divorcing a Narcissist (series), founder of One Mom’s Battle, and the High Conflict Divorce Coach Certification Program. Tina continues to champion children’s rights through her family court advocacy. Tina is working to raise awareness of the issues in the family court system and to educate the general public on post-separation abuse and narcissistic abuse. Tina is remarried and resides in San Luis Obispo, California with her husband and two daughters.

Golden Nuggets and takeaways from this episode include:

  • It only takes one person to create a high conflict case 
  • Children are often the abuser’s pawns during a divorce
  • Some of the most challenging times for Tina were when she had to learn the system, play nice while trying to maintain boundaries, and have her voice heard 
  • In family court, it’s not what you say, but what you can prove. Tina shares how she was able to prove one of her ex’s lies while they were both under oath
  • The paradigm of being the safe parent and handling the sometimes explosive feelings and emotions your children express in your presence
  • The power is in understanding the narcissist’s patterns so that you can manage their behaviors

Tune into this episode to hear Tina’s amazing journey and for examples of how you can promote child safety advocacy in custody decisions!

Tina Swithin survived a “Category Five Divorce Hurricane” while acting as her own attorney in a high-conflict custody battle that turned her family’s life upside down for over a decade. While divorces are never easy, Tina quickly learned that divorcing a narcissist or other high-conflict individual escalates family law cases to levels that few can comprehend.   During her ten year journey through the family court system in pro per, Tina went through a two-day trial, over 40 court dates and two full child custody evaluations. During this time, minor’s counsel was appointed, over twelve police reports were generated and a total of three child welfare reports determined that her ex-husband was a “moderate risk” yet did nothing to protect her children.   In 2020, Tina Swithin founded, “Family Court Awareness Month.” Tina is the author of Divorcing a Narcissist (series) and founder of the High Conflict Divorce Coach Certification Program. Tina Swithin has been awarded honors such as the “Top 20 Professionals Under 40” and the “Top 40 Professionals Under 40” in several regional California newspapers. Tina resides in San Luis Obispo, California with her husband and her two daughters.

How to Cope When There’s No “Co” in Your Co-Parenting with Christina McGhee on Divorce & Beyond #254
50:27

America’s Favorite Parenting Expert is back on the show! Christina McGhee re-joins host Susan Guthrie on The Divorce & Beyond podcast. Together they discuss the top tips for managing a difficult co-parent!  Parenting even under the best of circumstances is challenging. When you add into the mix a co-parent who is uncooperative or high conflict, it’s downright exhausting. So, what can you do?  Christina has some wonderful tips about how to maneuver a co-parenting situation where your co-parent is non-existent or uncooperative.

Christina shares ways to work through the feelings of hopelessness and exhaustion. Plus, she talks about how to get to a place of being in control of yourself and your emotions so you can be an empowered, consistent, engaging, and confident parent to your children. 

Christina McGhee is a speaker and divorce parenting expert who believes divorce doesn't have to equal devastation for families.  She is also the author of the highly acclaimed book, “Parenting Apart: How separated and divorced parents can raise happy and secure kids.”

Some topics that Christina and Susan discuss:

  • What Christina means when she says “When there’s no “Co” in Co-parenting…”
  • Instead of staying focused on fixing the co-parent, lean into your co-parenting values and work on yourself
  • Radical acceptance: Adjust your expectations and accept things the way they are…for now. “It may not get easier, but how you manage it makes a difference.” 
  • Ask yourself: How is your response going to impact your children?
  • Talk about the problem, not the person. “Making the other parent look small will never make you look big.”
  • Don’t forget about the power of one! 

Tune into this episode to hear tips and strategies that will keep your children at the center of your divorce and to learn how to cope with a difficult co-parent!

You Won’t Believe All the Ways that a Private Investigator Can Help You in Your Divorce with the Barefoot P.I., Jan Barefoot on Divorce & Beyond #252
50:01

Susan Guthrie is joined by Jan Barefoot, the Barefoot P.I., to discuss how a private investigator may be the secret weapon you need for your divorce!

This episode aims to help listeners understand what a private investigator (P.I.) does in a divorce. We often think about hiring a P.I. solely to find out if a spouse is having an affair. Yet, there is so much more they can do to help bolster the divorce case, including gathering information or creating a safe space for your next move. 

Ultimately a private investigator can help you by confirming your gut instincts, unburdening emotional turmoil, and allowing you to gain clarity on how you want to proceed with your divorce. 

Jan Barefoot founded Barefoot Professional Investigations in 1986 to provide targeted investigative services to clients in the southeastern United States. Jan’s unique interest in investigations was spurred by her experience working within the legal industry and a keen ability to uncover details. Jan’s passion is to impact the lives of Clients from favorable verdicts in capital murders cases to restoring spouses whose families have been wronged.

Jan and Susan cover these Golden Nugget topics:

  • How a P.I. can be helpful to someone going through a divorce
  • What a private investigator does when performing surveillance services
  • Jan explains that when you are involved in a custody dispute there is information a P.I. can gather for your case
  • Understanding the complexities of today’s digital world, digital forensics, and divorce 
  • Best practices for background checks when newly dating or even highering childcare services 

You won’t believe all of the ways a P.I. can help you in your divorce. Listen to this eye-opening episode! 

Transcript of the Episode: https://web.descript.com/b09b7409-c195-4375-9eed-f6543fbe9dce/063d6

About this week's special guest: Jan Barefoot

Charlotte native Jan Barefoot founded Barefoot Professional Investigations in 1986 to provide targeted investigative services to clients in the southeastern United States. Jan’s unique interest in investigations was spurred by her experience working within the legal industry and a keen ability to uncover details. Jan’s passion is to impact the lives of Clients from favorable verdicts in capital murders cases to restoring spouses whose families have been wronged. 

Her approach to private investigations has always been simple: deliver on commitments and provide unparalleled customer service. By nature, private investigation work is often quite sensitive and can be extremely challenging to all involved parties. Jan knows how critical it is to operate with respect, discretion, and professionalism. Over three decades later and after investigating over 200 murder cases and nearly 3,000 domestic cases, her investigators and staff continue to carry that torch. Jan holds a degree from King’s Business College and worked as a legal assistant for several years before moving to the investigative industry. She is an active member of the National Association of Legal Investigators, Intellenet, and the World Association of Detectives and enjoys continuing to grow and learn from the investigative community and industry colleagues.

”Dating in Your 40s Be Like . . .” The Viral TikTok Heard Round the World with Molly Dare Hillenbrand on a Special Bonus Episode of Divorce & Beyond #251
23:26

In a Special Bonus Mini-sode, host Susan Guthrie is joined by returning guest Molly Dare Hillenbrand, the dynamic founder of HillenBRAND Media and the host of "On Air with Molly Dare."  They discuss Molly's recent viral TikTok post with well over 1.5 million views that caused a media sensation nationwide with features in the New York Post and on NewsNationLive among others!

In a post captioned "Dating in Your 40s be like . . . " that must be seen to be believed (click here to watch!) Molly used a audio thread from a voicemail from "Dimitri" to highlight the sometimes treacherous waters of dating for women.  Although Molly's TikTok videos are always popular (follow her at @mollydareofficial) this one went almost instantly viral with more than 1.5 million views and over 17,000 comments.   While many of the comments were supportive and commiserated with the sometimes "narcissistic" dating pool out there, there was also a flood of misogynistic backlash and vitriol.  Molly has since posted more videos in response and shares some of the lessons learned along the way so tune in and check this one out - you won't believe your ears!  Trust us, if you are in a relationship, after listening to this episode, you will turn to your partner and say "thank you!"

How Do You Stop Being So Angry About Your Divorce with the Founder of Divorced Girl Smiling, Jackie Pilossoph on Divorce & Beyond #250
49:29

This week host Susan Guthrie is joined by returning guest Jackie Pilossoph, Founder of Divorced Girl Smiling. Together Susan and Jackie discuss the importance of understanding the anger about your divorce and how to move past it so that you can thrive in your beautiful beyond!

Some people go ten, twenty, or even thirty years caught up in the anger of their divorce.  For example, we all know that one person who continues to talk about how angry they are that their ex left them for another person, twenty years earlier. It’s normal and healthy to be angry.  However, holding onto anger for too long will impact your entire life; and not in the best of ways. 

During their conversation, Jackie shares seven practical tips and suggestions to help you acknowledge, process, and work through your emotions. If you are wondering HOW to let go of your anger - Jackie will help you! You have all the control of letting that anger go - it’s time to smile again. 

Jackie Pilossoph is the creator and editor-in-chief of Divorced Girl Smiling, a website, podcast, and app. Jackie, who went through a divorce several years ago, is a former TV and newspaper journalist who spent 8 years writing her syndicated weekly column, Love Essentially for the Pioneer Press/Chicago Tribune.

Jackie and Susan discuss these Golden Nuggets:

  • No judgment zone! Anger is a normal and healthy emotion
  • If you are in the anger phase - it’s okay to acknowledge it to others
  • “We can choose what we want to define ourselves as - anger, bitterness, or living in the past should not be one of those things.”
  • Letting go does not mean forgetting what happened 
  • Why you should shift the focus on yourself and your children 
  • “The only time you should think about the past is if you are going to learn from it and do better.” 
  • “If you love yourself don’t say, ‘What if…’”
  • The bottom line: You have to love yourself enough to let that anger go

This episode is a must-listen for anyone eager to learn how to release their anger for good!

The Brown Girl’s (or Guy’s) Guide to Divorce: What to Do When Your Culture Collides with Your Divorce with Author and Coach, Cindy Gunraj on Divorce & Beyond #247
44:49

On this week's episode, Host, Susan Guthrie and Special Guest, Cindy Gunraj discuss the layered and nuanced topic of cultural norms as they relate to divorce and how your family's expectations and beliefs can make a difficult experience even harder.

Cindy Gunraj is a brown woman who has tackled the difficult experience of divorce within a family construct and culture that prizes marriage and family above the individual.  Her experience brought her into direct conflict with her parents and extended family in a way that made her divorce feel like a failure not only on a personal level, but on a societal one as well.  The bright side is that Cindy persevered, worked to understand and appreciate the love while also challenging those cultural norms in a way that ultimately resulted in her receiving her family's support for her divorce and her parents' blessing.  Cindy shares her experience and her insights to help others who are facing a divorce that collides with their family, culture, religion and more in her book, Winning Your Parents' Approval for Divorce: 7 Practices to Leave Your Marriage with Their Blessing.

Some topics that Cindy and Susan discuss:

  • How Cindy's parents and extended family reacted to her announcement that she was getting a divorce
  • The ways in which a brown woman's or man's self-image are tied to their cultural norms and challenged when those norms and broken
  • Why boundary setting is a necessary part of seeking family approval and support in divorce
  • Why "priming" is an essential tool for dealing with family get-togethers and events
  • How self-care is at the core of finding a way to merge your own happiness with your family's expectations

This episode is the essential starter guide for merging your family, culture and your need for personal happiness and growth - be sure to listen!

What Impact Does Your ”Standard of Living” REALLY Have On Your Divorce with Top Divorce Financial Expert, Olivia Summerhill on Divorce & Beyond #243
39:36

In this episode, Host Susan Guthrie and Top Financial Expert, Olivia Summerhill CFP, CDFA, CMC, share insights into the significance that the marital standard of living (MSOL) may have on your divorce and how it can impact your ability to maintain your lifestyle post-divorce.

"I just want to maintain my standard of living."  Divorce attorneys and financial professionals hear that a lot but what does that really mean?  What constitutes your standard of living and how does the law look at the situation when it comes to helping people continue that lifestyle in their life BEYOND? The MSOL issue most commonly arises when discussing just how much spousal support or alimony will be paid by the higher earning spouse to the other.   Many people assume that they will be entitled to receive an amount that allows them to continue that lifestyle but what about the fact that  there is only so much money to go around?  We discuss this all and more in the episode.

Olivia Summerhill, CFP, CDFA, CMC founded a financial consulting firm dedicated to helping women maintain their lifestyles and thrive post-divorce by educating and empowering them financially.   Although Olivia's niche is celebrity and ultra-high net worth clients, she works with clients in diverse financial situations through her extensive pro bono work.  Olivia knows that when it comes to money and finances, there is nothing more empowering than knowledge and she shares so many golden nuggets with listneners in this episode - it's a MUST listen!

About this week's special guest:

Olivia Summerhill is the founder of a financial consulting company called The Summerhill Firm. She helps affluent women maintain their lifestyles and thrive post-divorce by educating and empowering them financially. 

Her niche serves famous and high-profile women who need help navigating the financial complexities of divorce. Having a decade of experience in wealth management and private banking, Olivia dedicates her time to protecting women. She consults with financial advisors and works with their clients to help them avoid divorce mistakes. 

Among numerous other designations in finance, Olivia is a Certified Financial Planner, Certified Divorce Financial Analyst, Certified Divorce Specialist, and a Certified Money Coach. 

Olivia is often highlighted in Forbes, US News, MSN, and other media. She hosts a money coaching podcast called 'Divorce for Wealthy Women.' And currently, she is training for an Ironman to raise money for a non-profit that helps women take control of their finances.

40:56

This week our Host, Susan Guthrie is joined again by Vassia Sarantopoulou, Counselor - Psychologist, Msc and the creator of AntiLoneliness who returns to the podcast to help us to break out of the trap of perfectionism.

Parent Coordination Primer Part Two: Navigating the Process with Carolyn Kalos on Divorce & Beyond #241
36:43

In Part Two of this special two-part episode focused on Parent Coordination, Susan and  Attorney/Mediator, Carolyn Kalos dive below the surface to dig into some deeper considerations when working with a PC in your high conflict case.  Carolyn shares some examples from her cases of what works and what doesn't and gives you some great questions to ask BEFORE you decide to add a parent coordinator into the mix!

Carolyn Kalos has been practicing in New York City, some of the busiest courts in the country for over 25 years and spend many of those years in the courtroom with some of the most difficult cases involving children.  She knows the ins and outs of the system AND it's limitations.  One thing that Carolyn knows for sure is that the court is very often not the best place to resolve issues between co-parents when it comes to disagreements about their kids.  

With her special expertise and many years of experience in the family courts as an advocate, Carolyn is passionate about helping families stay out of the system as much as possible, even high conflict cases.  She is a sought-after Parent Coordinator (PC) in New York and is seeing a large uptick in the number of judges appointing PCs and in attorneys suggesting them to clients.  But what exactly is Parent Coordination?  How does it work, how do you find a good one and how does it keep you and your family out of court?

Parent Coordination Primer Part One of a Two-Part Episode with Attorney/Mediator, Carolyn Kalos on Divorce & Beyond #240
30:47

This week and next, Susan speaks with Attorney/Mediator, Carolyn Kalos in a special two-part episode sharing everying you need to know about Parent Coordination:  What it is and How it Can Help Your High Conflict Co-Parenting!

Carolyn Kalos has been practicing in New York City, some of the busiest courts in the country for over 25 years and spend many of those years in the courtroom with some of the most difficult cases involving children.  She knows the ins and outs of the system AND it's limitations.  One thing that Carolyn knows for sure is that the court is very often not the best place to resolve issues between co-parents when it comes to disagreements about their kids.  

With her special expertise and many years of experience in the family courts as an advocate, Carolyn is passionate about helping families stay out of the system as much as possible, even high conflict cases.  She is a sought-after Parent Coordinator (PC) in New York and is seeing a large uptick in the number of judges appointing PCs and in attorneys suggesting them to clients.  But what exactly is Parent Coordination?  How does it work, how do you find a good one and how does it keep you and your family out of court?

This is a big topic, and is such an important one, that we had to make it a two-parter so listen to Part One now and tune in next Monday for the conclusion in Part Two!

Domestic Abuse Part Two: Turning the Focus to Post-Separation Abuse with Dr. Christine Cocchiola on Divorce & Beyond #238
41:35

We are back with Domestic Abuse Part Two where Dr. Christine Cocchiola discusses the increasing awareness of another form of IPV, Post-Separation Abuse, which is increasingly in the headlines with the ongoing high profile cases of Kim Kardashion and Kanye West and the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial.

Abuse between intimate partners comes in many forms.  All are destructive, but some are so insidious and pervasive that they are incredibly common, yet vastly unknown by the public and often, in fact, by the victims themselves.  With physical violence and abuse, it is very easy to identify that behavior is abusive, but when it comes to coercive control and emotional abuse, it is much harder to identify.  Dr. Christine Cocchiola, a survivor herself, is dedicated to educating, supporting and advocating for others suffering in this horrible cycle of abuse.  In Part One, Dr. Cocchiola discussed coercive control and she now helps us to understand the many faces of Post-Separation Abuse and the many dangers it presents.

About this week's special guest:

Dr. Christine Marie Cocchiola, a Coercive Control Advocate, Educator, Researcher, & Survivor has been dedicated to the field of intimate partner violence since her late teens, beginning her career at a local umbrella agency where she continues to volunteer. Dr. Cocchiola is a tenured professor at a Connecticut Community College and an adjunct instructor at NYU, teaching in the Social Work field for over 20 years. Her expertise is in the areas of intimate partner violence including child abuse and trauma, developing and presenting workshops on these topics, both nationally and internationally. She is a Founding Member of the International Coercive Control Conference and on the Board of the National Coalition Against Domestic.  Dr. Cocchiola has a small private practice serving individuals and families.

40:48

This week our Host, Susan Guthrie is joined by Dr. Christine Cocchiola, and expert in Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) for an important two-part episode that delves into some of the most insidious forms of abuse: coercive control and post-separation abuse.

Return on Thursday for Part Two where Dr. Cocchiola discusses the increasing awareness of another form of IPV, Post-Separation Abuse, which is increasingly in the headlines with the ongoing high profile cases of Kim Kardashion and Kanye West and the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial.

Loneliness & Divorce: Why Alone and Lonely Aren’t the Same Thing with Vassia Sarantopoulou, Creator of Antiloneliness.com on Divorce & Beyond #236
37:49

This week our Host, Susan Guthrie spends some time with, Vassia Sarantopoulou, Counselor - Psychologist, Msc and the creator of AntiLoneliness to explore what it means to be lonely and why being alone does not necessarily equal loneliness.

As humans we crave connection.  We long to feel that we are not alone, but does being alone equal being lonely?  According to our expert this week, Vassia Sarantopoulou, not necessarily!  In fact, there is a big difference in being alone and feeling lonely.  You can be surrounded by people and feel more alone than if you were stranded on a desert island by yourself.  Honestly, there is no more lonely place than in a relationship that no longer works for you and feeds your soul.  In this episode, Vassia and Susan discuss the two main types of loneliness, how loneliness can affect your mental health and some of Vassia's best tips on overcoming loneliness to live your best life! 

If you are worried about being lonely as your relationship ends, or are feeling lonely in the midst of your marriage, this is an important first step to thriving alone!

Is it Over? Should You Stay? Should You Go? Find out with Kate Anthony on Divorce & Beyond #235
48:19

Kate Anthony is back and she's right in her wheelhouse - helping you to decide whether there is still a chance for your relationship or if it's just simply, time to go.

This week, Susan and Kate dive deep into how you can make this incredibly difficult decision.  We know that on average, most people spend 4 YEARS trying to decide whether to stay or go.  4 YEARS!  Other times, there is a clear sign - think Abuse, Adultery or Addiction for many - but for many, it is a slow drip of wondering, trying, giving up and then trying again.  Kate gets it - she really does and she helps people every day to make this decision and if the decision is to go, then she helps them make a plan forward.  

For anyone struggling with the viability of their marriage or relationship, this is the episode for you.  

About this week's special guest:

KATE ANTHONY:

Kate Anthony is the host of the critically acclaimed podcast The Divorce Survival Guide Podcast and the creator of the groundbreaking online coaching program, Should I Stay or Should I Go? which helps women make the most difficult decision of their lives using coaching tools, relationship education, geeky neuroscience, community support, and deep self-work. Kate empowers women to find their strength, passion, and confidence even in the most disempowering of circumstances and helps them move forward with concrete plans set on a solid foundation, putting their children at the center (not in the middle) of all their decisions. In addition to her online programs, Kate works privately with clients all over the world.

Anything is Possible: Bonus Author Update with Laura Friedman Williams, Author of ”Available” on Divorce & Beyond #234
41:25

You loved Laura Friedman Williams when she first joined us in June 2021 to celebrate the launch of her first book "Available: A Memoir of Sex and Dating After A Marriage Ends" and so many listeners found comfort and hope in her candid recount of her journey to finding her inner woman again after her long-term marriage ended with her husband's affair.

Well she's back and better than ever althought the last year has had some highs and lows as she has navigated the finalization of her divorce, the moving out of the marital home and the purchase and renovation of her very own new home.  In her unique and special way, Laura shares an update on her personal journey that is, as always, deeply personal and revealing.  You will find much to relate to, laugh about and cry too as we catch up with Laura today as the book officially launches in the United States.  Tune in and find out why after all she has been through, Laura says she feels today "that anything is possible."

If you did not have the opportunity to listen to Laura's original, very special two-part episode, you don't want to miss them:

Some Times Too Much is Just Enough Part One

Some Times Too Much is Just Enough Part Two

More about Laura Friedman Williams:

Laura Friedman Williams is a native New Yorker whose writing credits consist of countless PTA newsletters and program notes for talent shows and school auctions, as well as ghostwritten bar mitzvah speeches for many of her friends. Her wit and wisdom have not yet made it to a larger audience, but her years spent raising children and running events at her children’s schools have kept her writing steady and sharp. She credits her degree in English from Washington University and the ten formative years she spent in book publishing – first in Subsidiary Rights at Warner Books (now Grand Central Publishing) and then at Henry Holt & Company, then as a book scout and finally as a literary agent – for giving her a deep love and respect for the written word. She credits the break-up of her marriage for finally giving her the subject matter about which she both needed and wanted to write. She lives in downtown Manhattan with her three children.

Erasing Family: Exploring Parental Alienation with Filmmaker, Ginger Gentile on Divorce & Beyond #233
54:22

This week on Divorce & Beyond, Host, Susan Guthrie speaks with documentary filmmaker, Ginger Gentile, a child of a high conflict divorce herself, about the truly heart-breaking cases of parental alienation and estrangement that cause a parent to lose contact with their child and even more heartbreaking, for a child to lose a loving parent.  Alienation is a form of child abuse wherein on parent manipulates a child in order to damage that child's feelings for their other parent and can cause irreperable harm to that child.  However, it remains an intractible problem for alienated parents to repair and that courts are ill-equipped to deal with.  Ginger's latest film, Erasing Family, is a look within the dynamics of alienation through the eyes of the children involved and their parents, step-parents and siblings.  Notably, there is hope there too as some of the children have re-established relationships with their alienated parent after years of separation.

Parental alienation affects more than 22,000 families in the U.S. alone.  If you or someone you know is experiencing this tragic loss, please listen to this episode.  Ginger shares some helpful insights and tips for managing the unmanageable!

For another episode on the topic of alienation please listen to:

Parental Alienation Solutions that WORK!  with Special Guest, Dorcy Pruter

More About Ginger Gentile:

Ginger Gentile is on a mission to save children from the trauma of high-conflict divorce. Her first film on this topic, ERASING DAD, was filmed in Argentina and resulted in joint-custody legislation being enacted. Her latest film, ERASING FAMILY, currently streaming on all major platforms, exposes the trauma children suffer when a loving parent is erased from their lives, a problem that affects 22 million families in the US alone.  

In her time serving as the Executive Director of the National Parents Organization in 2019 she added six new state affiliates and garnered national press attention for the Shared Parenting Report Card. Now, she is coaching parents suffering from parental alienation to help them reunite with their erased children GingerGentile.com/consulting 

Her program for replicating the success of reunited families will soon be a podcast, course and book.

Tales from the Tiger King: The Power of the High Road in Divorce with Attorney Holly Davis on Divorce & Beyond #232
38:39

In an episode right out of the headlines, Susan speaks this week with Celebrity Divorce Attorney, Holly Davis, who represents Dillon Passage, the estranged husband of none other than Joe Exotic, "the Tiger King" of Netflix fame.  Even from behind bars where he is serving a 21 year sentence for attempting to hire a hitman to kill his business rival, Joe Exotic manages to continue to use the media to put his "spin" on his divorce from his husband and Holly joins us to set the record straight.  

Although most people are interested in celebrity divorces for the drama and trauma, there are much deeper lessons to be learned and Holly's strong message to her client, and to listeners, is that there is a great deal power in choosing to take the high road in your divorce process.  We walk through the benefits of not engaging in the hijinks and mudslinging that your spouse may choose to engage in.  You can take the high road, as Dillon Passage has chosen to do, so be sure to listen, get the facts and get on that high road today!

Listen to Holly's Previous Episode on Divorce & Beyond:  "Fraud and Divorce: What We Can Learn From the Zobrist Divorce"

More about Attorney Holly Davis:

Holly Davis has been representing Dillon Passage, former spouse of "Tiger King" Joe Exotic. When Joe announced that he had recently been diagnosed with cancer, Holly supported her client in taking the high road and pressing pause on divorce proceedings, which led Joe to falsely claim Dillon was foot-dragging on finality. 

Holly is a founding partner of Kirker Davis LLP in Austin,Texas, a leading matrimonial boutique law firm.  You can find out more at www.kirkerdavis.com.

Drowning in Drink: Alcohol Use and Abuse in Divorce with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen on Divorce & Beyond #231
45:42

Since April is Alcohol Abuse Awareness month, Susan visits with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, The Divorce Doctor, about the risks, challenges and hardship that alcohol use disorder can wreak in the lives of individuals and families.  It's all about raising awareness, starting a conversation and letting you know you are not alone if you are struggling with substance abuse issues.

Our favorite therapist, Dr. Elizabeth Cohen a/k/a The Divorce Doctor, returns to speak with Susan about Alcohol Use Disorder, Alcoholism and more in this deeply personal episode.  Both Dr. Elizabeth and Susan have family histories of alcohol abuse and each share their own experience and insights to help you get curious about the role alcohol plays in your life and what to consider if you find it is a relationship that needs examining.  For those struggling with a family member or friend who is numbing out or more with alcohol, Dr. Elizabeth shares some tips on the path to wellness for them and for you.

We live in a society that glamorizes normalizes the use of alcohol for so many things - celebration, relaxation, de-stressing and more but when alcohol becomes a problem that same society shames and stigmatizes individuals.  It's time to shine the light, open the conversation, speak frankly and advance the dialogue so that we all can lead healthy lives - whether with alcohol or without!

If you are struggling with your relationship with alcohol or someone you love is, here are some resources:

Overcoming Denial and Loss of Identity with the Nazi’s Granddaughter, Silvia Foti on Divorce & Beyond #230
37:38

This week on Divorce & Beyond, Host, Susan Guthrie speaks with Best-Selling Author, Silvia Foti, whose book The Nazi's Granddaughter: How I Discovered My Grandfather Was a War Criminal caused a world-wide sensation and sparked a deeper conversation around her deeply personal journey through denial, loss of identity and eventual acceptance and decision to honor the truth.  

At first it may be hard to see where Silvia Foti's journey from the treasured granddaughter of a celebrated national hero, to the becoming the myth-busting heir to a history of deceit, anti-Semitism and Nazi collaboration intersects with the journey through divorce but trust us - it does!  After all, when we are faced with a reality that we find unacceptable, such as divorce or other unwelcome major life change, isn't it human nature to enter some period of denial?  Silvia certainly did when she discovered the truth about her grandfather's participation in atrocities during the war.   And when you have believed for years that your role in life is wife, husband, partner and/or spouse, isn't there some element of loss of identity when things drastically change during a divorce?  Silvia experienced this as well and more on her 20-year long journey to uncover and then document the truth of her history.

This is a riveting story of one woman's journey for truth and her many lessons that will help you on your way - be sure to listen today!

More About Silvia Foti:

SILVIA FOTI, author of the memoir The Nazi’s Granddaughter: How I Discovered My Grandfather Was a War Criminal, is an award-winning investigative journalist in Chicago and a high school literature teacher. She holds master’s degrees in journalism, education, and creative nonfiction. Silvia made a deathbed promise to her mother to write a book about her famous, WWII hero grandfather, Jonas Noreika, twenty-one years ago. Silvia’s grandmother begged her not to write about her husband. “Just let history lie,” she whispered. Silvia had no idea that in keeping her promise to her mother, her discoveries would bring her to a personal crisis, challenge her Catholic faith, unearth Holocaust denial, and expose an official cover-up by the Lithuanian government. Her goal in writing this story of her grandfather, known as General Storm in Lithuania, is to upend Lithuania’s narrative that Lithuanians had nothing to do with killing Jews, that it was all done by German Nazis.

From the Front Lines: Marriage and Divorce in the Military with Kristina Kaiser on a Special Episode from the Archive of Divorce & Beyond
45:08

April is officially recognized as Month of the Military Child.  There are more than 1.6 million military children who face many challenges and unique experiences as a result of their parents' service.  In fact, the entire family is faced with challenges when a member serves in the military so we are re-releasing this wonderful episode from the archive with Kristina Kaiser to help shed light on the sacrifices that families and children make to support our military.  For more information on the Month of the Military Child visit:  https://www.defense.gov/Spotlights/Month-of-the-Military-Child/

We often remember to honor those who serve, and rightly so, but the family members, especially the spouses of our active military members also make sacrifices in the name of our country and deserve our thanks as well.  In honor of Military Family Appreciation Month, Kristina Kaiser, herself the former wife for almost 30 years of a Marine officer, gives an insider view into the many ways that our military families give of themselves, often to their detriment, while a family member is in active service.  Facing many moves and relocations, job limitations, unpaid volunteer work expectancies, co-parenting alone and more, the spouses and children of military personnel also can be affected by the military life.  Beyond that, divorce can be extra complicated when an active or former member of the military is involved.  The pensions, benefits and more that are one of the highlights of military careers are limited in some ways in being divided during the divorce process and the non-military spouse may end up receiving less than the might have if they were not dealing with military benefits.  Whether you are a member of the military, a military family member or one of those who owe them our thanks, this episode is a wonderful reminder of all they sacrifice for their country and why those thanks are deserved!

IMPORTANT NOTE:  This episode is meant to honor our military families and to give a glimpse of the hardships and sacrifices that they make for out country.  We mention some of the issues that can arise in a military divorce but if you are divorcing and military benefits are at issue, it is strongly advised that you seek counsel from an attorney in your area who is well-versed in military benefit in divorce.

Sticky Notes to Help You Through Your Divorce (and Beyond) with Author & Coach, Jennifer Warren Medwin on Divorce & Beyond #227
39:56

In this memorable episode, Host Susan Guthrie chats with Coach and Author, Jennifer Warren Medwin, whose recently published book, Strategies and Tips From A Divorce Coach: A Roadmap to Move Forward is a goldmine of easy to remember and to adopt strategies and frameworks for moving successfully through your divorce and into your future.  It's like a divorce coach in a book!

One reality of divorce is that there is way too much information for us to take in at a time when we are emotionally and physically exhausted and strained.  It is hard to remember our name some days let alone the necessary strategies that we need to survive and thrive through the process.  Divorce Coach and Author, Jennifer Warren Medwin has taken all the key elements that anyone going through divorce or other major life change needs, and has broken them down with mnemonics and other simple teaching tools to make them memorable and easy to follow so that you can keep them on sticky notes in your head, ready to use when needed!  

Listen to the episode to hear all about the Three A's of Change, how to stay C.A.L.M. in challenging situations, some B.R.A.V.E. skills you can use to alleviate stress and how to L.E.A.N. into insecurity.

These golden nuggets and more are the sticky notes you need to get through your divorce!

How to Get Your Act Together So that You Can Tackle Your Divorce with Alex Beattie of Divide & Thrive on Divorce & Beyond #223
43:11

This week on Divorce & Beyond, Host Susan Guthrie talks with Alex Beattie, whose own experience of divorce, led her to co-create the Divide & Thrive Divorce Organizer to help others get organized and thinking clearly so that they can approach their own divorces feeling empowered and in control!

All divorce professionals know that one of the biggest pain points for their clients is pulling together and keeping organized all of the often complicated information is needed in order to identify the issues and make good decisions about their divorce.  Alex Beattie knows this intimately having gone through her own complicated split.  Rather than let herself get overwhelmed, Alex used her skills as an entertainment producer to bring organization, process and method to her divorce approach and she WOWED her divorce team!  Alex quickly realized that sharing her experience and insights could make the process easier and better for so many others.  Alex and her friend, Jenny Pithie, also banded together to create the Divide & Thrive Divorce Planner to help you take organization to the next level!

Here are just a few things that Alex and Susan discuss in this episode:

  • When should someone start getting organized for a divorce? 
  • What are the benefits of preparing for a divorce early in the process?
  • What are the most common mistakes people make when preparing for a divorce?
  • What should people be focused on when preparing for a divorce?

If you are facing divorce and feel overwhelmed, anxious and even just a little bit freaked out about where and how to get started, this is the episode for you!

Alex was recently featured in the New York Times article: Divorce is Hard: Here's How You Can Help Someone Going Through One

More About Alex Beattie and the Divide & Thrive Divorce Planner:

After navigating her own split, Alex Beattie co-created the Divide & Thrive Divorce Organizer to give the consumer a low-cost way to take control of the divorce process and guide them during a time of uncertainty.

Recommended by financial planners, divorce attorneys and divorce coaches, the digital organizer works on iPads and computers, or can be printed out and put into a binder. By putting your Divorce information into one portable program, the consumer has all of their vital information at their fingertips during meetings with attorneys, mediators, or other divorce professions — which saves them time and money.   As a creative producer with twenty plus years of experience, Alex Beattie has developed and produced series and feature films for Showtime, NBC, Paramount, Starz, FOX, Amazon, and more.

Set Yourself Up For Successful Conversations, Even During Divorce with Communications Expert, Liz Becker on Divorce & Beyond #222
42:30

Face it, if you could have great conversations with your spouse you might not be facing divorce or separation.  So often, by the time that couples reach the point of divorce, they have long since stopped communicating effectively and often have actually established toxic patterns in how they speak to each other that are ultimately self-defeating.  Button pushing, blaming and other communication rabbit holes sabotage the ability to have successful conversations.

My guest this week, Liz Becker is, among her many skills, an expert communications coach as well as a noted divorce professional, so she knows just how important it is to be able to communicate clearly and effectively with your spouse during, and after, the divorce process.  This is an opportunity to change those negative patterns and habits and start to have conversations together that move you forward into a new future.  Liz will walk you through the 5 essential tips for setting yourself up for a successful conversation, during your divorce and in your life!

More About Liz Becker:

Liz Becker is the President and Co-founder of the National Association of Divorce Professionals and Creator of the CDS™ Program. Liz is also a Licensed NLP Master Practitioner, Communications Skills Coach & Trainer, and has more than a decade experience in working with both divorcing clients and the professionals who serve them. Having worked in the divorce industry for many years, she has a keen sense in detecting specific issues that create obstacles for all parties involved in the process. Whether she was conducting NLP certification trainings, co-parenting workshops, or speaking at conferences, Liz has always found great reward in educating people how to communicate more effectively and achieve positive change in their lives, both personally and professionally.

The Episode That Parents Don’t Want To Listen To But MUST Hear with SVU Prosecutor, Stacey Honowitz on Divorce & Beyond #221
51:48

***Trigger Warning:  This episode contains graphic discussion about sex crimes against children and we use appropriate anatomical terms and language throughout the episode. ***

Sadly, in the world we live in today, talking with your kids about sex and how babies are made isn't the most difficult conversation you need to have with them.  With the reality of sex crimes against children, and in a world where there are untold predators that prey on the most vulnerable, parents must also warn and prepare their children for potential dangers that can lurk most anywhere.  This week's guest, veteran sex crimes prosecutor, Stacey Honowitz, has had a front row seat for decades and has worked tirelessly to convict those who violate our children.  She has literally seen it all, including that fact that many parents don't have those difficult talks with their kids about the dangers that lurk out there.  She knows how necessary it is to talk with your kids about this and she wants you to know as well.  In fact, she has coined the term "parental malpractice" for the failure to prepare your kids for the potential situation where someone touches them improperly or worse.

Stacey shares some true crime details in this episode, as well as specifics on what you need to tell your kids.  She is also the author of three books, The Bully at School is Really Uncool, Genius With a Penis, Don’t Touch and My Privates are Private, all designed to help you have those necessary conversations with your children.  Don't commit parental malpractice.  Listen to this episode and help your kids stay safe!

SPECIAL BOOK GIVEAWAY!  We are giving away one copy of each of Stacey's three books this week.  If you would like to be a winner, simply share the BOOK GIVEAWAY post on Instagram to your Stories (you can find it on the @susanguthrie, @divorceandbeyond or @staceybhonowitz accounts) AND tag all three accounts!  Winners will be announced on Sunday, February 13, 2022!

Hi. I’m a 33 year veteran sex crimes prosecutor . The real SVU.  have seen all cases including divorced parents that want custody so will allege criminal acts .

Divorce is hard.  Divorcing a Narcissist?  Well that is a whole different ballgame!  One of the biggest problems for those who are divorcing someone with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is that they don't understand what they are dealing with and are therefore, unable to plan and strategize.  In fact, most people divorcing narcissist feel like they are constantly playing defense, trying to catch up and simply treading water in a attempt to survive the constant onslaught of motions, communications and outright lies that seem never-ending.  Tracy Malone is a survivor of narcissistic abuse herself and she joins Susan today to help you to learn all about what to expect in your divorce from a narcissist so that you can be proactive, plan and move your divorce forward.  Tracy recently released her first book, Divorcing Your Narcissist: You Can't Make this Sh** Up, a major collection of facts and examples of what you can expect during your divorce as well as tips and advice for how to handle each and every situation!

Listen in to this episode if you are divorcing a Narcissist and get the facts that give you the ADVANTAGE because as Tracy says, "if you are aware, you can prepare!"

It’s Time to Fix Your Picker and Stop Falling in Love with the Wrong People with Bela Gandhi, America’s Favorite Dating Expert on Divorce & Beyond #218
42:05

Fresh off her visits with Good Morning America and The Today Show (among others), America's Favorite Dating Expert, Bela Gandhi, stops in to chat with Susan Guthrie about the very human drama of falling in love with the wrong person and how we can "fix our picker" to find a lasting love.

We have talked about the fact that Peak Dating Season is ongoing in January each year but for many people all that dating leads to making poor choices in partners, sometimes over and over again.  In fact, although we may think that we would select better spouses after going through a divorce, in reality, with each subsequent marriage, the chances of divorce greatly increase. The numbers break down like this:

  • 41% of first marriages end in divorce.
  • 60% of second marriages end in divorce.
  • 73% of third marriages end in divorce.  

So why do we continue to make poor choices in mates and much more importantly, HOW DO WE FIX OUR PICKER?

Bela Gandhi, the Founder of Smart Dating Academy knows and she shares it ALL.  The red flags vs. the green flags and why we ignore them both.  The fact that we are hard-wired for the hormone rush but that oxytocin glow can derail our real desires, and bottom line, how to identify the elevator people in your life so that you can find the right one for your love life!

It's all here and trust us, when you are done listening to this episode, you WILL be psychotically optimistic about your chances of find real and lasting love too!

To hear more about the elevator people in our lives check out Bela's recent phenomenal TEDx Chicago Talk and listen to her BRAND NEW PODCAST! Smart Dating Academy: The Podcast with Bela Gandhi.  Susan is Bela's first guest:  Listen to the episode here: https://audioboom.com/posts/8006156

She is also the author of the highly acclaimed book, Parenting Apart: How separated and divorced parents can raise happy and secure kids.

”We Need to Talk:” How to Have the Most Difficult Conversation of Your Life with Kate Anthony on Divorce & Beyond #215
46:36

In this episode, Top Family Law Attorney, Susan Guthrie speaks with friend and host of The Divorce Survival Guide Podcast, Kate Anthony about the right way to tell your spouse that you have decided to divorce.

It is January 3rd, 2022, the first Monday in the New Year and that means that it is D-Day (Divorce Day) the day that more people reach out to divorce attorneys and other divorce professionals than any other day of the year.  This kicks off what we in the industry call Divorce Month (January) and Divorce Season (January - March) because traditionally, this is when people, those who have been considering divorce for a long time or those who make a quick decision, find themselves pulling the trigger and moving forward.

The decision to divorce is hard, and can take a long time, but the next step, telling your spouse, is one of the most critical steps in the process and it is imperative to do it right!  Kate Anthony, Susan's guru on all things communication, joins her for this episode to help you plan that conversation so that you start things off the best way possible.  Trust us, this is truly one of the most important conversations that you will ever have and it pays to put time and effort into doing it the best way possible so that you can, as Kate says in the episode, put your head on the pillow that night knowing you did your best.

They say that you should start as you mean to go and that is never more true than when starting a divorce.  How you tell your spouse, will set the stage for how your divorce will unfold and in many ways, how you will continue into your BEYOND so take the time and do it right!

***********************************************

About this week's special guest:

KATE ANTHONY:

Kate Anthony is the host of the critically acclaimed podcast The Divorce Survival Guide Podcast and the creator of the groundbreaking online coaching program, Should I Stay or Should I Go? which helps women make the most difficult decision of their lives using coaching tools, relationship education, geeky neuroscience, community support, and deep self-work. Kate empowers women to find their strength, passion, and confidence even in the most disempowering of circumstances and helps them move forward with concrete plans set on a solid foundation, putting their children at the center (not in the middle) of all their decisions. In addition to her online programs, Kate works privately with clients all over the world. Kate lives in Los Angeles with her teenage son (whom she lovingly co-parents with her ex-husband), their two dogs, and a handful of fish.

Mapping Your Path to Financial Independence After Divorce with Author and Financial Coach, Millen Livis, Creator of the ”Millen-aire Method” on Divorce & Beyond #212
33:48

In this week's episode, Host, Susan Guthrie, chats with Author and Financial Coach, Millen Livis who shares with listeners the essential four steps to map your path to financial independence after divorce (or really, any time in life)!

In the realm of sad but true statements that divorce attorneys hear all the time is that someone has stayed in a marriage far longer than they would have chosen to because they were afraid they could not go it alone financially.  In other cases, the fight over money when one spouse is financially dependent on the other, creates additional conflict and hard feelings in the process as one person feels they are doing all the giving and the other feels they are having to fight for every penny.  The fact is, there is no power in being dependent in any way on another person and this can be especially true in a marriage or relationship.  Millen Davis, knows the truth of this all too well having been there herself.  Now financially independent and thriving, Millen helps others to find their own unique path to financial freedom and she is going to share the four essentials with you so that you can, as she says in the episode, get started right after you listen!

They say wisdom is power, but financial freedom is essential to living your best life so sit down, grab a pen and paper, and get ready to get started in mapping your path to financial independence!

Bonus Minisode: How to Talk to Your Kids About School Shootings with Jenny Stevens, LCPC on Divorce & Beyond
23:16

In a very special Bonus Minisode, Susan reached out to friend and colleague, Jenny Stevens, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, who has 20 years of experience working with adolescents and families as a school counselor, for advice on how to talk with your kids about the traumatic and scary ongoing epidemic of school shootings plaguing our country.

As many listeners know, the recent school shooting at Oxford High School in Oxford, Michigan on November 30, 2021, hit especially close to home as it was the school that her niece and nephew recently graduated from and the community where her brother and his family lived and thrived for many years.  The fact it, there have been 222 school shooting so far this year and the threat of an active shooter is one that every child in school in this country faces.  We need to talk with our kids, support them and help them feel safe in this scary world while also dealing with our own feelings of fear and fury that this keeps happening.

As always, when listeners reach out asking for guidance, Susan wants to talk with the people who have the experience and expertise to share their advice so in response to your many questions and comments on the topic, she reached out to Jenny Stevens, who until recently was a school counselor for more than 20 years.  Jenny dropped everything to be here and share her top tips for talking with your kids about school shootings and even breaks it down for our younger children and our pre-teens and teens.  This mini episode is here to help you talk about something that we all wish we didn't have to talk about.

Please listen.

Vanquishing Victimhood So You Can Trust and Love Again with the Founder of the Post-Betrayal Transformation Institute, Dr. Debi Silber on Divorce & Beyond #208
41:18

This week on Divorce & Beyond, Dr. Debi Silber, the Founder of the Post-Betrayal Transformation Institute is back to visit with Host, Susan Guthrie, and she is here to help you break free from the victim mentality that can accompany the betrayal of a loved one, including adultery and financial infidelity.  

Dr. Debi is a holistic psychologist whose ground-breaking research on the topic of betrayal and recovery led her to identify the four stages of betrayal and create a program to help people move beyond the pain and heal so that they can thrive and be happy again.  Unfortunately, many people find themselves stuck in Stage 2 of the process, dwelling in the victim role, the hurt, anger and rage.  There are many valid reasons to remain in this space but they will keep you from moving forward and beyond the betrayal to live a healthy and happy life.

In this episode, Dr. Debi outlines the four stages of the process and shares tips and insights into the "whys" and "hows" of healing and learning to trust again.  She herself has been down the path and healed and that in and of itself is a story worth listening to this episode for!

As a VERY SPECIAL GIFT for listeners of Divorce & Beyond, Dr. Debi is giving away THREE of HER BEST-SELLING BOOKS to one very lucky person.  Just listen to the episode all the way to the end to learn how to win!

Fraud and Divorce: What We Can Learn from the Zobrist Divorce with Top Attorney, Holly Davis on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast #207
44:05

On this week's episode, Host Susan Guthrie is joined by top family law attorney, Holly Davis, to discuss the fascinating celebrity divorce of Ben and Julianna Zobrist, which has been playing out for months in the media with allegations of fraud.  Susan and Holly unpack the claims and bring a dose of reality into the conversation to help you to understand the role of fraud in divorce.

Former Chicago Cubs pitcher, Ben Zobrist has been very vocal in his allegations and claims of fraud in his divorce proceeding but is any of it true and if it is, what effect does it actually have on the divorce?  Top family law attorney, Holly Davis discussed the facts of the case and what the legal effect of Ben's position is when it comes to a final judgment from the court.  It is not unusual for a disgruntled spouse to cast aspersions on their ex, but is it just legal positioning or will it actually affect the outcome and sway the judge in court? Find out in this fascinating episode!

Some of the topics we discuss:

  • Judges are supposed to be neutral, but will facts like this tend to push them to one party's side? 
  • How can an allegation of fraud play out in a divorce case? Does it become a separate case, or do the two legal cases become combined?
  • How would a finding of fraud manifest in a final divorce decree? 
  • How commonly does fraud come up in divorce cases? 
  • Does having an affair increase the risk of being accused of fraud in a divorce proceeding?
  • Can Zobrist make any other claims, like "mental anguish"?

In this episode, Tina covers her top questions to ask yourself to prepare to divorce a narcissist and protect your kids - don't miss it!

Why Divorce Should be a Team Effort and How to Find Your Pros with Vesta Divorce Founders, Samantha Vona and Deanna Coyle on Divorce & Beyond #204
38:21

In this episode Host, Susan Guthrie, chats with two of the co-founders of Vesta Divorce, Deanna Coyle and Samantha Vona, about the importance of finding and building the correct team of professionals to support you through your divorce

One of the most common memories people share about their divorce is just how very ALONE they felt as they went through the process.  Indeed, the process can be very isolating and that feeling alone will make what is already difficult even harder to get through.  Both Deanna Coyle and Samantha Vona have experienced that sense of loneliness that divorce can bring in their own lives and it led them to join forces to create Vesta Divorce, an essential resource and place to find your trusted team. They have built a better way to navigate the divorce process by providing direct access to what you need through complimentary events and concierge services, vetted, expert professionals, and a compassionate community of support.  Come and listen in and we promise, you won't feel alone anymore!

************************************************

More Information About This Week's Special Guests: 

Deanna Coyle is Co-Founder, Concierge Manager, and Leader of Ancillary Professionals. As a mother who has gone through a long and financially and emotionally draining divorce, Deanna understands how isolating and frustrating the divorce process can be. Her challenging divorce led her to create divorce programs that educate, empower, and guide people in navigating the crucial decisions and considerations during and after divorce. In 2015, Deanna left her successful financial planning business to work exclusively on creating Vesta. 

Deanna helps Vesta’s clients connect with experienced and caring professionals in the areas of divorce and self-care that best suit their needs. She is dedicated to transforming the divorce process by helping people avoid courtroom battles and the resulting anger, resentment, and hurt that affect all involved. She is focused on the emotional, financial, and physical health and well-being of both parents and children. 

Samantha Vona is a Co-Founder of Vesta. As a child of divorce at the age of three, Samantha watched not only her parents but many other family members get divorced over her lifetime. Samantha is passionate about helping families make informed decisions instead of emotionally driven decisions. She enjoys speaking with parents about her experience, and how she turned part of her identity into a focus to help others during what can be a difficult life transition. 

With a background in finance and trained as a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA), she is especially passionate about making sure people understand their financial options in divorce and beyond. Samantha understands the value of a team approach to help clients make decisions that positively impact themselves and their families.

Everything You Need to Know to Get a Restraining Order with Attorney Uswah Khan on Divorce & Beyond #203
39:45

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and this week host Susan Guthrie speaks with Attorney Uswah Khan who has helped scores of victims of abuse obtain restraining orders in order protect themselves, and their children, from suffering further at the hands of their abusers.

On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. Restraining orders offer one of the few tools that a victim has to try to protect themselves from ongoing abuse but getting a restraining order can be scary, confusing and complicated.  To make matters worse, many victims cannot afford to retain an attorney to help them navigate the court process making it even more difficult to apply for relief.  Attorney Uswah Khan has spent the past few years representing and assisting victims of domestic violence as the staff attorney at The Center for Family Justice in Connecticut.  In this episode, Uswah demystifies the process of obtaining a restraining order and walks you through the steps so that you are empowered to get the protection that you, and your children, need.  This episode truly will save lives!

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic or intimate partner violence please contact The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or Text "START" to 88788

About this week's special guest:

Attorney Uswah Khan has been practicing family law in the State of CT for over 18 years.  Most recently, she served as staff attorney at a Family Justice Center assisting victims of domestic violence.  For the past 9 years, she has run her own practice engaging in private divorce mediations and a family law litigation.  Additionally, she was a Hearing Officer for Special Education,  for the Connecticut State Department of Education.   She received her B.A. from Columbia University, Barnard College, a J.D. from Pace University School of Law, and an MBA from the University of Connecticut School of Business.   She is also admitted to the U.S. District Court, District of Connecticut in 2005, and to the United States Supreme Court in 2018.

43:34

In this week's episode, Host Susan Guthrie is joined by Child Specialist, Kathleen Zumpano, who is an expert and pioneer in techniques and methods for safely bringing the voices of children into the divorce process.

Divorce professionals the world over shudder at the thought of children being put in the middle of their parents' divorces.  We have nightmares about that question, "Which parent do you want to live with?" so for ages the prevailing wisdom has been to keep the children as far from the courtroom and professionals as possible, but then aren't they somewhat lost in the process?  Kathleen Zumpano, MA, LMFT believes passionately that the voices of children should be heard when divorce affects truly every aspect of their lives - BUT IT MUST DONE SAFELY!  Kathleen specializes in child-inclusive mediation, which includes individual, private meetings with the children, to ensure that feedback given to parents includes the child's own experiences and feelings.  She shares important insights and information on this child centered process that will open your mind, and your heart, to the possibilities!

This is a very important episode for all parents going through divorce AND the professionals who assist them!

SPECIAL GIFT:  To download copies of Kathleen's FREE resource on “The Voice of the Child” and “A Child’s Experience” visit her website at www.kathleenzumpano.com!

FOR DIVORCE PROFESSIONALS:  Kathleen will be holding a special workshop on The Voice of the Child: Bringing the Voices of Children into the Divorce Process on October 21, 2021 - JOIN US!

This workshop will introduce participants to the best practices of incorporating a child’s voice into divorce proceedings to improve outcomes for families and without putting children in the middle. There are prevailing international protocols for working with children, this workshop will provide an overview of research, as well as introduce participants to tools for screening parents, determining the level of involvement of the child, how information is elicited and how to prepare parents to hear feedback and information regarding their child/ren.

Divorce is hard under the best of circumstances, but for most people, it will come to an end and their lives will smooth out and they will go forward with their lives and even co-parent peacefully for the most part, but then there are the high conflict cases.  The ones where your ex tries to turn the kids against you, drags you back to court every other week and continues to cause chaos and havoc in your life no matter how long ago the divorce was finalized.  How do you survive that High-Conflict Co-Parenting paradigm and more importantly, how do you help your kids through it all?

Megan Hunter, the CEO of The High Conflict Institute with Co-Founder, Bill Eddy, is here to help with her book: The High-Conflict Co-Parenting Survival Guide!  Megan shares invaluable advice and practical strategies on ways to manage your anger, stress, fear and worry as you continue to have to maintain a co-parenting relationship with a narcissist or other high conflict person.  Listen to this episode and you WILL have HOPE and a game-plan for the future!

When Will This Be OVER? Coping with the Never-Ending Pandemic (and Your Divorce) with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, The Divorce Doctor on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast #199
38:45

One of our favorite guests, Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, The Divorce Doctor, returns to talk with Host, Susan Guthrie about the long, drawn out experience of the pandemic we are living through and how that relates to your seemingly never-ending divorce process.  Believe it or not, there are startling parallels between the two and Dr. Elizabeth shares some sanity saving tips on how to cope with both!

Our favorite therapist returns to help us cope with the ongoing, and seemingly never-ending, pandemic and because they are related in so many ways, with the stress of your never-ending divorce too!  Think about it, the disappointment, fear, exhaustion and on-going trauma are so similar with both and the good news is, so are the coping strategies! 

Dr. Elizabeth shares concrete steps you can take to cope with any ongoing trauma in your life.  Make today the day you feel just a little bit better (or a lot!) by listening to this episode!

45:15

This week host, Susan Guthrie, is joined by the woman who is changing the divorce process for couples and families forever!  Erin Levine, Founder and CEO of legal tech phenom, HelloDivorce is here to give you the FYI on DIY Divorce!

The statistics on traditional litigated divorces are staggering:

  • Recent national statistics suggest that a majority of divorce and separation cases (72%) involve at least one self-represented party.
  • Divorces that go to trial on two or more issues cost, on average, $23,300.
  • The average hourly rate for a divorce attorney is $270.
  • The average total cost of legal fees was $11,300 per spouse when a full-scope divorce attorney was involved.
  • Divorces take, on average, between 12 and 18 months to finalize.

Is it any wonder that most people going through divorce do not want to, or cannot afford to, hire attorneys?  In fact, there are a number of reasons why people choose a more Do It Yourself approach to the process and this week's guest, the Founder and CEO of Hello Divorce, Erin Levine, is here to give you the FYI on DIY Divorce so that you can take charge of the process yourself and know when and where to go if you need help! Erin is the leading expert on elawyering and online divorce in the country and she and Hello Divorce are here to support you as you face the legalities, and myriad other details, of divorce.

You Don't Know What You Don't Know But The exExperts DO with Jessica Klingbaum and T.H. Irwin on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast #196
48:08

The Awesome Women of exExperts, T.H. Irwin and Jessica Klingbaum, join Host, Susan Guthrie this week to share their collective thoughts and wisdom on divorce because as they say, "they've been there so they get it!"

For so many people the divorce process is like a firehose of information that is just overwhelming and confusing.  It is a rush of information to learn, decisions to be made and emotions to be managed and you have no way of knowing who or what to believe or listen to.  My guests this week, T.H. Irwin and Jessica Klingbaum, get it.  They really do, because they have been there (boy, have they been there) and they want to pay it forward by helping you.  This episode is the onramp to express lane on the highway that is divorce so hit play and take charge of your journey now!

T.H. and Jessica also share the details on their personal and intertwined divorce journeys and let me just say, after 30 plus years as a divorce attorney, I thought I had heard it all - I HAD NOT! 

Tune in to hear their story and to find out what the "it" of divorce is!

Essential Lessons We Can Learn From #FreeBritney with Celebrity Attorney, Christopher Melcher on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast #195
41:09

Celeb Divorce Attorney, Christopher Melcher, joins Host, Susan Guthrie this week to discuss the ongoing courtroom and personal drama that is unfolding in the Britney Spears Conservatorship matter.

From her public "melt-down" to the current courtroom drama, the world has watched the ongoing drama of Britney Spears' legal issues with fascination for 13 years.  As the current legal challenges to her father's ongoing role as her conservator in the face of allegations of gross abuse of that position, the media reports are a constant barrage of information and mis-information.  This week's guest, Attorney Christopher Melcher, has done the homework and is here to give an accurate legal view of the many failings of the court system and those who took advantage of the very person the system was supposed to protect, Britney Spears.

This is a fascinating look behind the scenes of #FreeBritney Movement and a cautionary tale of the havoc that greed and incompetence can wreak in the lives of the vulnerable.

The Forgotten Victims of Gray Divorce: The Effects on Adult Children with Therapists and Authors, Carol Hughes and Bruce Fredenburg #188
47:21

In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Therapists, Carol Hughes and Bruce Fredenburg, authors of "Home Will Never Be the Same Again: A Guide for Adult Children of Gray Divorce," about the effects of parental divorce on adult children, and how the negative repurcussions can be minimized.

It is no secret that gray divorce is on the rise world-wide.  In fact, divorce among those who have been married for 30 years or more or who are divorcing later in life, is one of the largest segments of those who are divorcing today.  Much has been written about the unique difficulties faced by those who divorce close to or during retirement and after long-term marriages, but there is a forgotten segment of people who are deeply impacted by the divorce - the adult children whose parents are going through a gray divorce.

Carol Hughes and Bruce Fredenburg, both family therapists, collaborative professionals and mediators, have done a deep dive into this topic with years of personal experience with patients and families as well as a great deal of research which they have distilled into a ground-breaking new book, "Home Will Never Be the Same Again: A Guide for Adult Children of Gray Divorce."  It is easy to believe that children who are adults, perhaps with families of their own, will have little to no impact when their parents divorce but the reverse is actually true.  Carol and Bruce provide guidance for parents, children and even therapists in their book and this episode provides insights and tips into this growing paradigm!

To enter to win one of 5 FREE Audible copies of the book, please send an email to Carol Hughes at drcarolhughes@me.com and mention "Divorce & Beyond!"

Do Not Hesitate to Collaborate! Getting Divorced Without Setting Foot in Court with Ashley Nicole Russell on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #187
48:10

In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with leading family law attorney and author, Ashley Nicole Russell about how her experience of as a child of a toxic divorce turned her into a tireless crusader to help families restructure through the process with dignity, privacy and self-determination without ever having to go to court.

Ashley Nicole Russell says she had a fairly normal childhood, at least that is, until her parents' vicious divorce and never-ending cycle of conflict "cut the roots out from under her."  Today, Ashley Nicole no longer has a relationship with her parents, at least not right now, but her experience has made her a leader in the world of family law.  Collaborative divorce is yet another method for couples to utilize when going through a divorce.  The collaborative process is predicated upon compiling a curated integrative team to support the family and to help forge a new path forward for all.  A principal concept of a collaborative divorce, is that no one need go to court at all and that all issues be resolved cooperatively.

Hear more from Ashley Nicole Russell in this episode and find out from one of the leading collaborative attorneys in the country why you and your family should not HESITATE to COLLABORATE!

More Information About This Week's Special Guest: 

Ashley-Nicole Russell, Esq. is an award-winning family law attorney, author, podcaster, and speaker who is changing the way divorce is perceived around the world.

Yes, You CAN Mediate a High Conflict Divorce with Bill Eddy on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #185
49:14

In this very special episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with the leading high conflict divorce expert in the world, Attorney, Mediator and Therapist, Bill Eddy, who shares tips and insights from his new book, Mediating High Conflict Disputes, which flips the long held belief that you have to litigate these cases on it's head!

For years it has been the industry belief that divorces involving one or more high conflict people cannot be mediated and that litigation is the only way forward.  In fact, Bill Eddy, the world's leading expert on high conflict divorce, thought this was true himself but after 40 years as a therapist, attorney and mediator he now knows better.  Bill has determined that high conflict divorces CAN be mediated moreover, they SHOULD be mediated rather than litigated.

In his latest book, Mediating High Conflict Disputes, Bill sets out his revolutionary methods for mediating with high conflict parties in a book that will help both mediation professionals as well as those facing the divorce process.  Bill's effective method for mediating high conflict disputes involves flipping some long-standing mediation norms upside down but his methods work and are a lifeline for those who want to end the ongoing conflict cycle of a high conflict litigated divorce.

This episode will change the way you approach high conflict divorce forever!  Be sure to listen today!

The Solution for Tackling the Divorce Detour with Storey Jones, Creator of dtour.life on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #184
49:01

In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Storey Jones, Founder of dtour.life, an innovative and easy to use platform that helps you tame the chaos and overwhelm of the life detour called divorce!

Storey Jones went through her own 7-year divorce ordeal several years ago and she came out of it with one certainty and that was that "no one should have to go through what she went through in her divorce!"  Storey has spent the years in between examining the obstacles that she faced and focused on creating a technology solution to address each one and so, dtour.life was born.  In this episode, Storey walks us through those divorce obstacles and how you can tackle them!

More information about this week's Special Guest, Storey Jones:  

Been there. Done that. Survived and thrived. In 1998 Storey Jones married a technology entrepreneur. By 2001 his company had executed a successful IPO and then an accounting scandal brought everything crashing down leaving her in a highly complex seven-year legal quagmire that included every unimaginable financial and emotional challenge including a protracted high-conflict divorce and custody battle. Though she lost everything including her home, possessions, savings & retirement, she gained a purpose. She recognized the glaring chasm between the human experience of divorce and the legal system; she developed a new business model as a divorce consultant to assist men and women in becoming far more informed, prepared and supported as they navigate their own unique processes. She also worked closely with divorce legal teams to help their clients be better prepared participants in their own divorce.

After well over a decade as a divorce consultant in the San Francisco Bay area, Storey has now leveraged that experience to build the first holistic end-to-end platform for divorce to bring innovation and technology to an outdated system. She is determined to change the experience by providing education and smart efficiency with expansive day-to-day tools that are designed so both clients and professionals can seamlessly work on and understand the same financial and other case-related data. dtour.life is designed from the ground up to fundamentally redefine this life transition for both spouses and professionals.

Prior to founding Lemon Tree Advisors and dtour.life, Storey was president of Addis, a bay area brand strategy and design firm where for 13 years she was integral to its growth and vision. Storey has a B.A. from Colgate University.

Sometime Too Much is Just Enough Part Two with Laura Friedman Williams, Author of Available on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #183
41:12

In Part Two of this Special Two Part Episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Laura Friedman Williams, Author of the soon to be released (June 10th) book, Available: A Memoir of Sex and Dating After a Marriage Ends which will make you laugh and make you cry and most importantly, will give you hope!

Laura Friedman Williams truly thought she had the perfect marriage of 27 years. The perfect family and the perfect life and then one night, by the glow of the light from her husband's cell phone, it all came crashing down as she faced the truth that her husband was in love with someone else.  Suddenly she faced a life that included a future that was unknown but also a rewriting of her own history of the marriage she thought she had versus the marriage she now faced.  Laura set out to redefine her life, explore her sexuality and found herself along the way and she shares it all, and I do mean all, with us in her first novel, Available, launching June 10, 2021. 

In Part One, Laura and Susan delve into some of the deeper topics of the betrayal and pain of an unepected divorce but here in Part Two we get to the "fun stuff" and Laura shares some of the lighter and sexier moments along the way.  You definitely don't want to miss this so listen today!

WANT TO WIN A .pdf copy of the book?  Just go to Instagram, follow @divorceandbeyond and @laurafriedmanwilliams and repost or share any post about the episode tagging those accounts.  

More information about This week's Special Guest, Laura Friedman Williams:

Laura Friedman Williamsis a native New Yorker whose writing credits consist of countless PTA newsletters and program notes for talent shows and school auctions, as well as ghostwritten bar mitzvah speeches for many of her friends. Her wit and wisdom have not yet made it to a larger audience, but her years spent raising children and running events at her children’s schools have kept her writing steady and sharp. She credits her degree in English from Washington University and the ten formative years she spent in book publishing – first in Subsidiary Rights at Warner Books (now Grand Central Publishing) and then at Henry Holt & Company, then as a book scout and finally as a literary agent – for giving her a deep love and respect for the written word. She credits the break-up of her marriage for finally giving her the subject matter about which she both needed and wanted to write. She lives in downtown Manhattan with her three children.

Learning How to Say YES to the Biggest NO in Your Life with Coach and Author, Andrea Hipps on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #181
44:51

In this episode Susan Guthrie speaks with new friend, Andrea Hipps, a Certified Divorce Coach and Author, about her innovative and truly effective approach to moving through the pain of your divorce in order to find your future and to create a healthy two address home for your children.

There are few experiences in life that can involve more pain than divorce and many people have great difficulty in moving past that pain, and some never do.  Andrea Hipps understands that pain.  She experienced it herself years ago when she divorced and and found a way to face that pain and work with it based upon a questions a friend asked her.  That question started out with "What would it be like . . ." and although Andrea's initial reaction when the friend asked her was 'Hell no!', she eventually came to see that that "what if" held the key to breaking the cycle of pain and creating a new and wonderful future.

If you can't imagine how you are going to co-parent with your ex, this episode is truly a must for you because embedded in the question you must ask yourself, is the key to creating an asset based future for your reconstructed family.  A future where your children can thrive in what Andrea calls a "two address home."

In this episode you will hear:

  • What the key to breaking your life open is.
  • How her Husband's "Proclamation of Disconnection" led to Andrea's own inward journey.
  • What an Asset Based Approach to the future looks like and how it benefits you and YOUR KIDS!
  • Why mediators start your process with a discussion of what you want for your children (insider secret from Susan)
  • How finding some genuine "yesses" about your ex will help you create that "two address home" and

MUCH MORE!

In this episode Susan Guthrie talks with Lili Vasileff, one of the Leading Divorce Financial Professionals in the Country and author of three books on the subject, about the reinvigorated topic of Grey Divorce, as highlighted by the recent spate of high profile billionaire divorces.  The fact is, they can afford to get divorced, but for those of more modest means, Lili points out the many financial pitfalls, and strategies to avoid or minimize them, for those divorcing later in life!

The news has been full of reports about some high profile, ultra high net worth divorces in recent months, most recently that of Bill and Melinda Gates who have been married for 27 years.  In fact, the later years or "grey divorce" is the most common age group getting divorced these days!  According to the most recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau, divorce rates were highest (about 43%) among both sexes, aged 55 to 64.  This is more than just an interesting little tidbit of information if you are in this demographic and getting divorced as the finanancial ramifications of getting divorced when you are older can have serious and long-lasting effects and mistakes made during the divorce process can be catastrophic.  As Lili and Susan say, "In divorce, there are no do-overs!"  The key take-aways are: get professional help if you can, educate yourself and take charge of your own financial destiny.  Lili is passionate about financial literacy and this episode will help you to see why - be sure to listen!

43:48

In this episode Susan Guthrie talks with Professional Organizer and Founder of Divorce Rx, Michelle Sarao, about how the truly transformative power of getting your life organized can transform the divorce experience for both you, and more importantly, for your kids!

Michelle Sarao has years of experience as an educator and a professional organizer, but her own divorce helped her to see how the process of organizing your life, from environment to logistics, can magically take the overwhelm of divorce and turn it into peace and order for both you and your children!  We understand that it is all coming at you fast and furious during divorce, and Michelle realized that it can feel just like one more thing to do when we talk about getting organized, but she breaks it down, and is available to help, so you don't have to do it all alone or at one time.  

This episode is chock full of tips, pointers and ideas for getting your act together during divorce, that I promise you have not thought of, so do it for your kids, and take a listen to this episode!

More information about This week's Special Guest, Michelle Sarao and Divorce Rx:

Michelle Sarao is the founder of Divorce Rx, a unique brand of professional organizing that focuses on the needs of divorcing and divorced families. She combines her professional background as an educator and organizer with her personal background as a child of divorce and divorced mother of 3 to help families organize their homes and lives when transitioning from one home to two. Michelle passionately believes that when children are in an environment that is organized and calm this translates into a feeling of predictability and safety at a time when they need it most. Her passion for her work stems from the desire to help parents show up for themselves and their children during divorce, in a way that makes them proud.

First and foremost, Michelle believes in the importance of meeting her clients where they are, listening to their pain points and finding out what is keeping them up at night. She then works with them to create solid action plans to move them forward in a gentle and consistent way.

There are several ways that Michelle works with families to ensure that the transition is as seamless as possible. Her signature program - The Divorce Toolkit is an 8 week virtual program focusing on 4 main categories every 2 weeks - the physical space, academics, health and social lives. She can also provide the 8 week program in 2 concentrated half days for those who are in a time-sensitive situation or just prefer everything upfront.

In addition, Michelle offers a Power Hour to target one main issue and provide actionable steps to take and listeners of The Divorce & Beyond Podcast can sign up for a 1/2 price Power Hour just by mentioning the show!
