About Me

I am a former divorce attorney who helped clients navigate the stressful and frustrating divorce process. I also went through my own divorce after a 10-year relationship, in the midst of a global pandemic, no less! With all my personal and professional experience, I’ve learned that 3 core values are key to navigating transitions in marriage, divorce, and life in general: Empathy, Resilience, and Intuition. I ground my life and business in those 3 values, and I do my best to nurture them in my clients as well.

As a Marriage and Divorce Coach, I guide my clients through a goal-oriented process that is designed to help them unpack their emotions and take ownership of their marriage, divorce, and future. My promise is that you will feel seen, heard, and supported through all stages of the journey.

Client Testimonials

By working with Kara as a coach I was able to negotiate an uncontested divorce while maintaining a positive relationship with my children. I gained the confidence that I was doing the right things the right way at the right time.
— Ciaran O.
At the time when I first started with Kara as my coach; she gave me the support I needed to stand on my own. Now, I can return to the tools and see progress in the way I show up energetically. Grief will take time to move through, but now I have tools to use to navigate the grief, learn and make decisions. Kara has warm, compassionate and empathetic listening skills.
— Michele A.
I enjoyed how understanding Kara was about what I am/was going through and how she asked thought provoking questions to help shift my mindset. I got the answers I needed as to whether it made sense to proceed with divorce and how to begin that conversation.
- A. Client
"Kara is very calm, knowledgeable, able to 'reflect back' what I was saying so I could see it more broadly...I needed to talk through my fears and get a bigger perspective...I took some concrete steps toward relocating."
-A. Client


As a Marriage & Divorce coach, I am an objective, non-judgmental sounding board who helps you process your emotions and think outside the box to find solutions to move forward. Coaches work with their clients to define the goals the want to achieve in their marriage, divorce,  and/or in life generally. Then we create action plans to achieve those goals. Along the way, I ask you empowering questions to help raise your awareness about WHO you really are, WHAT you really want, WHY your goals are important to you, and what’s BLOCKING you from reaching your goals.

The focus of therapy is healing and recovering from events and trauma in your past. While coaching also gets into your past, we don’t stay there; we go from past, to present, to future. Another important difference is that therapy typically serves clients who are experiencing some level of dysfunction (i.e., an inability to function in everyday life), with the goal of helping them become functional. Conversely, coaching takes the client from functional to optimal.

To learn more about the differences between therapy and divorce coaching, check out my blog post, “What are the differences between therapy and coaching?

If you decide to get divorced, there can be many professionals involved in your case: lawyers, mediator, judge, financial advisors, accountants, and parent coordinator (especially for high conflict divorce) are the first people you may think of. But none of these individuals are trained to help you on the emotional side of divorce. Given my professional experience, I know that emotions often block clients from thinking rationally and creatively on the legal side, which causes the divorce to drag on longer than necessary. I provide you a safe, judgment-free space to process your emotions, so you can move forward. We also define the goals you want to achieve, not only for your divorce, but for your new life. And unlike most coaches, I have years of legal experience in family law under my belt.

The other divorce professionals – while absolutely necessary – do not provide this type of support for you. Plus, releasing your emotions with a trained coach is much more cost-effective and will save you time and money, compared to calling up your divorce lawyer, who is already pressed for time with many other cases and is not trained to help you process your emotions.
