What is a Divorce Coach and Why Do I Need One?

A Divorce Coach is a licensed mental
health professional with specialty training in collaborative law and/or
family mediation, as well as parenting and children’s issues that
surround a divorce. Coaching is not therapy and does not replace the
need for therapy and does not give legal advice or replace the need for
an attorney.
