Divorce coaches are professionals with specialized training to help couples manage emotions, strengthen communication, facilitate conflict, and create plans to meet unique family needs through pre-divorce, divorce, and post-divorce issues. They act as an independent third party to provide guidance, encouragement, motivation, and support.
As a collaboratively trained mediator with a specialization in high conflict divorces, Liz helps couples and individuals communicate better, manage conflict, navigate strong emotions, and manage expectations. She also helps you learn how to negotiate, how to support your children, how to prepare for life post-divorce, and fill in the gaps that an attorney cannot support you with.

High Conflict Divorces
About 30% of divorces in the US involve parties who are classified as “high conflict.” This includes people with narcissistic personalities, bipolar disorder, or other personality disorders, and they tend to have these characteristics:
- Preoccupation with blaming
- All-or-nothing thinking
- Unmanageable emotions
- Extreme behavior
And the divorce process only increases these behaviors.
With tactics such as “gaslighting” to manipulate people and systems and gain power, these high conflict individuals will lie, obfuscate, ignore deadlines, refuse to comply with court orders, and waste time, money, and energy in order to win.
We specialize in High Conflict Divorces and have made it our mission to support those involved with high conflict individuals through legal services and empowering solutions. Book a consultation with us to learn more.
