Divorce can be so isolating. Your friends and family might not understand what you are going through. But, you are not alone and divorce is NOT a failure. On this podcast I speak to real people who have gone through divorce and thrived through it. We talk about the struggles and the successes. We explore how the pain of divorce brought my guests realizations about themselves and their situation they never would have had without this experience.

I can’t tell you how many clients have shared that being reminded they are not alone allowed them to get up in the morning and keep on keeping on.

With my 15 years of experience as a clinical psychologist working with people going through divorce I know the ins and outs of divorce.

I am thrilled you are here and are ready to get the support you so deeply deserve.

    MY STORY

    MY STORY

    I’m thrilled that the Divorce Doctor podcast has resonated with so many of you. I remember after my divorce, how much it helped me to know that I wasn’t alone. Having that support truly made a difference in the aftermath of my divorce and onward. This is why I started this podcast, wrote my book, Light at the Other Side of Divorce: Discovering the New You, and started Afterglow. I truly appreciate the community we’ve created.
     
    This week's episode of the Divorce Doctor podcast will be a little different. I’ve decided to be vulnerable and share my own experience of divorce. I’ll admit, I was a little nervous to interview myself. It’s been 12 years since my divorce, but my story still brings up a lot of different emotions for me. But if there’s anything I know, it’s the importance of vulnerability.

    Boundaries, Co-Dependency and Divorce

    Boundaries, Co-Dependency and Divorce

    When it comes to relationships, a lot of us jump to the idea of compatibility. But do we understand the nuance of that term? 
    It doesn’t have to mean a “matching set'' dynamic, or finding the perfect piece to your puzzle. Your partner doesn’t have to save you, fix you, or complete you. In fact, when a relationship turns towards reliance - complete reliance - you’re not experiencing compatibility, but codependency. It’s not about you, your partner, your family, or happiness- it’s about saving the marriage you believe you need, even if you don’t. 
    In this episode of The Divorce Doctor Podcast, Terri Cole and I dive into codependency and boundaries through both marriage and divorce. Terri is both a licensed psychotherapist and has been a global relationship and empowerment expert for over two decades, working with clients from stay-at-home moms to celebrities and CEOs. Not only that, but Terri has a gift for making psychological concepts accessible to everyone, inspiring thousands through her blog, social media platform, signature courses, and her popular The Terri Cole Show podcast.

    Making Your Divorce a Choose Your Own Adventure Book

    Making Your Divorce a Choose Your Own Adventure Book

    Many of us dream of the perfect, harmonious relationship. Each person is there to support one another equally, help each other become the best versions of yourself, and maintaining the relationship feels effortless. Sometimes we want this kind of relationship so badly, that when our gut is telling us something’s off we ignore it in the hope that we’re in the wrong. Although listening to that gut feeling may be terrifying, it can also be extremely freeing.
    Jessica Butts and I discussed the euphoria of finding yourself again on this episode of The Divorce Doctor Podcast. Jessica is the creator and CEO of Front Seat Life. She's a Myers-Briggs expert. She's a life business coach for intuitive women. She's a therapist, she's an author. She's a keynote speaker podcaster, and she brings so much love and heart to everything she does. She is an ENFJ, truth teller, F-bomb dropper, a lover of all things Maui, and fiercely dedicated to helping you become unapologetically who you are.
    In this episode, Jessica and I discuss her sense of freedom as a result of her divorce, and the experience of restoring her individuality.

    The Art of Letting Go

    The Art of Letting Go

    Leaving a long term relationship can be terrifying. You might question whether it’s the right decision, find yourself betting on how much longer you can last in it, or questioning who exactly you are without that person around anymore. This process can be time-consuming and laborious, but Jill Sherer Murray teaches us that while it is at times a terrifying, heart-wrenching process, the reward of knowing that you can be happy no matter what will always be worth it. 
    In this episode of the Divorce Doctor Podcast, I had the pleasure of speaking with award-winning author and journalist, TEDx speaker, and founder of “Let Go For It,” Jill Sherer Murray. Jill works through her brand “Let Go For It” to help women let go of whatever’s holding them back so they can live the life they’ve deserved all along.
    In our discussion, Jill and I discuss the ordeal of trusting yourself enough to let go of relationships that are holding you back. We also discuss the importance of choosing yourself, and why it shouldn’t be considered a selfish or inconsiderate act!

    Divorce: It All Comes Back To Love

    Divorce: It All Comes Back To Love

    “You cannot heal the pain by avoiding it. You have to look at it. It doesn't stay around forever, but the more you push it down or shove it down or avoid it, it's just going to get bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger.”
     
    When you have children together, navigating divorce comes with an extra set of challenges. Not only are you handling your own emotional pain, but you feel responsible for your child as well.  All in all, the most important thing to remember is that it all comes back to love, which is what I discussed with my recent guest on the Divorce Doctor Podcast, Heather Chauvin. 
    Heather is a leadership coach who helps ambitious, overwhelmed women conquer their fears and become leaders at work and home. She is the host of the Mom Is In Control Podcast where she reveals her most vulnerable truths about womanhood, marriage, parenting, living through stage 4 cancer and running a successful business without burning out.  Her first book, Dying to be a Good Mother, is available where all books are sold.
    In this episode, Heather and I discuss the motherhood side of divorce, and how to cope with the feelings of pain and loss.

    What Happens When a Divorce Lawyer Gets Divorced

    What Happens When a Divorce Lawyer Gets Divorced

    Have you ever heard of a divorce attorney's own journey through divorce? Without someone deciding to be vulnerable and share that story with us all, we can be quick to assume that a personal divorce would feel like standard practice for a professional. But that’s just not the case.
    I recently had a conversation with Susan Guthrie, a family and mediation attorney and owner of Divorce in a Better Way. Susan shared personal stories from her own divorce which beautifully paints the picture that everyone going through a divorce experiences the same emotions and seasons. 
    But Susan’s perspective has created a greater hope that you can have a better divorce. In my most recent episode of The Divorce Doctor, Susan and I discuss how to recognize when a marriage won’t work, what it’s like to get back to work if you weren’t working before the divorce, and how to care for yourself throughout the process. Susan shares a lot of great insight that you won’t want to miss!

Amazing podcast

Dr. Elizabeth is asking the questions I am thinking she is creating a space for peaceful conversation and room for healing to set in. I feel hugged and understood at the end of every podcast.
