Hanna Perlberger
Attorney, Mediator, CDC Certified Divorce Coach®

For 15+ years, I have witnessed the terrible effect divorce has on self-esteem, dignity and moving on. My partner, a Supreme Court of Florida Certified Family Mediator, and I recognized that the Divorce Coach was the missing professional in divorce and created a program to help others take the high road, restore dignity to the process of divorce, and inspire them to be their “best self”.

Each author uses these values to bring practical, actionable steps to help you take the high road and create a healthy divorce.

Co-Founder, CDC Certified Divorce Coach®

Taking the high road in abnormal and often excruciatingly stressful circumstances is not easy. Stress alters who we are in the moment, and you might regret the things you say and do when you are in flight or fight mode, when you are “not yourself.” When divorcing, that regret is amplified by the negative impact of your actions on your family, on your children. Read this book to discover how to be your best self in your divorce. I will be purchasing this book in bulk to hand out to my clients from now on.

Powerful Insights From Today's Top Certified Divorce Coaches

Now available in eBook or paperback!

I am looking forward to recommending this book to clients. It holds the potential to redefine how divorce is viewed, managed and experienced by everyone involved. This is a realistic and hopeful perspective for anyone who needs help and clarity to navigate an entirely new chapter in their life.

Ariane deBonvoisin
Author of "The First 30 Days", speaker, coach, entrepreneur

So many clients arrive in my office believing their story demands they take revenge or seek "a pound of flesh" for what has been done to them. Witnessing their pain and watching the transformation to a new and often better life is a privilege that takes time and their best efforts. Divorce: Taking the High Road will allow them perspective upon why doing so is, in the long-term, much better for them and their children. The book is both about changing perspective, a mind shift, really, and changing the process too. Both components are clearly necessary to make divorce a more manageable and survivable experience.

Cherie D. Morris

Everyone going through separation needs help. While people turn to lawyers and accountants, they most often need help from coaches. Coaches serve an indispensable role in helping people stay focused during a tumultuous time in their lives where they are receiving opinions from multiple sources. Coaches help people sort through all the chatter and stay true to themselves and their goals.
