our splendid life

Are you tired of being on edge because of your ex?

What would your life be like if you had the tools and resources to diffuse a high conflict situation? How would it feel to have peace of mind sending your children to your ex-partner's house? Are you ready to take back control of your situation and move forward after your custody battle?

here's how I can help:

It might not be the life you've always dreamed of, but what if it could be even better?

It wasn't too long ago that I was curled into a ball on the bathroom floor sobbing because my custody battle felt so unbearable. I look back now and realize that everything I went through was preparing me for the life I have now. And believe it or not, I'm so grateful for those challenges because they led me to the path that would change my life.

I help parents uncover the real reason they're struggling with sharing custody

I believe that situations don't just show up in your life, they are reflection of the limiting beliefs and patterns that have been programmed into your subconscious mind during your childhood. Dysfunction runs in families, until someone is brave enough to heal it. Generational trauma stops with you.

I know that everything happens for a reason. Whatever we experience is either a lesson to be learned, a pattern to be healed, or an aligned action that we have chosen to take. When the custody process is so full of stress and negativity, you won't find that here. Take a deep breath.
