Your New Divorce Coach, Divorce Mediator and Amicable Divorce Pro

I won the lottery in divorce.

I am the .001%

97% of divorce does not go to trial and of the 3% that do go to trial only 1% of that 3% goes to the appellate court!

Well, that was ME.

Not knowing what to think — or being financially in the dark but emotionally void or worse…emotionally calm but a walking fiscal nightmare — shouldn’t be the thing holding you back from divorcing with dignity, grace and success.

Quite frankly, continuing to be a babe in the woods isn’t winning you results, it could also be holding you back and keeping you stuck.

Because no, your life —and future are yours to create and learning to be a “credible legal client” is NO joke! (your success with your attorney depends on it)

That’s where I slide in, ponytail on, laptop in hand all Reese-in-Legally-Blonde at your service.

It’s been a winding road. I left the dance, yoga, and birthing world behind to start my own business when I saw divorce’s devastating effects on families, couples, and children — and you know it isn’t pretty.
High Asset Divorce Coaching and Mediation the BDA way

I wear THREE hats in the divorce world.

BDA Does Divorce Differently and Better

I act as a Credential Private Mediator that works with couples who are committed to avoid litigation.

No one is the plaintiff
No one is the defendant
No one is suing the other

I act as a neutral party that facilitates a conversation between the parties that allows them to create an uncontested Memordum of Agreement

I then hand that agreement to one of my transactional attorneys who take that MOA and write up the legal paperwork and submits it to the court and in 30-90 days the couple is divorced and neither party ever has to step foot in a courthouse.

but it takes 2 to tango in those cases
I act as a Ceritifed Divorce Coach where I work with one of the parties

I hold their hand lock arms with them walk through the fire and step by step personally guide them through all the way to the other end.

I personally support, guide, and coach clients from the very early stages of contemplating divorce to thriving and healing during and after the entire process.

I always say I would get divorced FOR you if I could cuz I’m really good at it.

BUT it’s not legal

So I get divorced WITH you.
In addition to my work at Better Divorce Academy, I’m the Director of Coaching and Case Management for Divorce Right Inc.,

#1 HR department divorce sensitivity training
#2 course, group and private divorce coaching programs

We're dedicated to making divorce a better experience for everyone involved.

Celebrate ALL Of Your Options as Healthy

Over the years, my boutique academy has tackled cases for owners of 8-figure businesses, candy companies, financial firms, and fashion icons—many of them didn’t find the support or compassion they needed from high-net-worth divorce attorneys who were just in it for the cash. (They hate that I say that…sorry not sorry)

We’ve even worked with a couple that was married for just 6 months with a baby on the way!

Forgive me while I bend down to pick up the examples I just dropped, but we work on the reg with ridiculously fab married and divorcing couples just like YOU who are ready to clarify their GOALS and SAVE THOUSANDS. 

My team’s guiding philosophy is simple: 

it’s all about a success strategy and that tranquil feeling of

“I can live with that AND avoid court results.”

I won the lottery in divorce.

I am the .001%

97% of divorce does not go to trial  and of the 3% that do go to trial only 1% of that 3% goes to the appellate court!

Well, that was ME.

I personally endured an 8.5 year fully litigated case that included a 12 day trial that took place over 9 months and after all that living hell…(please excuse my french)

there was a FOUR year state supreme appellate court process.

It cost a TON of money, years of my life tied up in court and it nearly destroyed me and my family.

the funny thing during this time I could barely help myself but time and time again other’s reached out to ME for help..

I called my attorney Marty (gutta remember I was born in Boston)

and told him what happening.

I asked him if I should go to law school…
he smiled and said you know Paulette you think like a judge act like a lawyer and feel like a therapist you owe it to give back and help people you my dear have experienced what 99% of people never will… that experience gives you the depth and the breath of the entire divorce process
