Over the past 25 years in my work as a Psychologist and Career Counselor/Coach in private practice and at Harvard Business School,
I have had the privilege of working with individuals, couples and families as they face the challenges of navigating their way to more fulfilling personal and professional lives.
Divorce is certainly an experience which can create serious
challenges in both personal and professional domains. While it may be hard to see this while trying to survive
the "storm," divorce (like many life crises) can also be a catalyst to pursue greater happiness in one's life
(i.e., "never let a crisis go to waste"). I would be happy to speak with you to see if I may be of help with your unique concerns.
