Unless you’ve been there, it’s hard to understand the hurt that comes from separation and divorce. That’s why many of your friends and family don’t fully understand what you are going through and don’t know how best to help you.

We do. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place.

In a welcoming setting, we will deal with the range of emotions and decisions that surround divorce. We will learn from the people who have been down this path and who can help us navigate successfully through the challenges of divorce.
