About Susan Schwartz

I am a CDC Certified Divorce Coach® who specializes in high-conflict divorce. I can help you have strength during this difficult time, courage to begin your new life, and confidence in knowing that you are making the right decisions for your future. I am a journalist and former IT Specialist who worked for Knight-Ridder Tribune, America Online (before and after the Internet went public!), and multiple AOL Brands. I now proudly contribute to both YourTango and The Huffington Post as an Expert Contributor in the fields of Divorce/ Divorce Rehabilitation / Divorce Prevention / Infidelity - Affair Recovery in Divorce / and Life Transitions.

Sometimes you have to climb a treacherous mountain before you can put yourself out there as a qualified guide. Combining my own life experience with my education to become a CDC Certified Divorce Coach®, I offer you the services of Living Well Coaching. With a network of highly respected professionals at my side, we are prepared to work together to support your needs. I am certified in all fifty states and offer coaching in person, via-phone, or internet video conference. What does living well mean to you? Contact me today and together we will plan your tomorrow.

I offer services in:

1. DIVORCE READINESS: “I’m not sure I want a divorce. What should I do?”

A CDC Certified Divorce Coach® doesn’t just work within the process of divorce. In fact, we are trained in the process of divorce readiness as well. I have a specialized approach to working with you as we, together, question whether or not you are ready for and actually want a divorce. There are alternatives to divorce and if you are unhappy in your marriage but not sure what to do next I can help you find the answer that is right for you.

2. DIVORCE COACHING AND PREPARATION: “Help! I’m getting a divorce, what happens now?”

At the heart of what we do, CDC Certified Divorce Coaches® cover every category of divorce from the day you leave, are left, or are thinking of leaving, through the day you are through with your divorce and ready to begin your new life. And life is not always that easy! I can help you plan for your new life, prepare if you have to go back to court, or for anything else unexpected that comes your way. Better than a friend or family member, I am trained to get you from step-to-step without bias or judgement and to show you how to get moving when you find yourself feeling lost. Divorce is a difficult and overwhelming process. I am here to help guide you through.

3. COACHING PREPARATION FOR MEDIATION AND DEPOSITIONS: “What are all of these deadlines and what am I supposed to do?”

CDC Certified Divorce Coaches® are trained to help you stay focused and organized during a stressful and demanding time in your life.  I know exactly how to work with you and your mediator or attorney to ensure that you are fully prepared for each step of your divorce process. I can become a member of your divorce team and make sure that you feel fully supported, understood and heard at all times.

4. COACHING PREPARATION FOR TRIAL: “There is so much to do, so much is riding on me, and it is stressing me out!”

As a CDC Certified Divorce Coach® who specializes in high-conflict divorce, I can work with you and your attorney to oversee a process where you will organize your information in preparation for your divorce hearing. Getting organized in advance will not only save you time and money, but will give you the confidence that you need during a time where you will be put to the test. You deserve to show up as your very best self during your divorce proceedings and I can show you how to do that.

And as a CDC Certified Divorce Coach® I will continue to stay on trend with the latest news in my industry to make sure that I am always giving you the best that I have to offer based on what is happening in your life today. Don’t just build a team, build the very best team that you can. As your CDC Certified Divorce Coach® I can help you do this.
