Life is a journey with many different paths to take. The choice of path you take is yours! The power lies in knowing the tools to utilize as you walk your way through it.
I grew up in Switzerland in a ski resort where my parents owned a Hotel. Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of coming to New York, the city that never sleeps; the city with endless opportunities. I even bought myself a poster of the Twin Towers, dreaming that one day; I too, will live in this golden land.
That day arrived, or so it seemed, when I met my ex-husband with whom I thought I would build my dream life. Things did not turn out the way I planned, much less dreamed of. The marriage was doomed from day one. I was blessed with a beautiful princess 9 months after our wedding and realized at that point that I was stuck in an unhealthy, abusive marriage. I felt trapped, unable to even think; I had no energy or survival skills to get out of my situation and start anew. I was a foreigner in this country, with little connections or friends, no job, no financial prospects and had no idea how I would survive on my own. The only thing that kept me going was my little girl.
After 6 years of marriage I finally summoned up the courage to get a divorce. It was definitely for the best. I do not wish divorce upon anyone. But I can honestly say that I am a much stronger, healthier, savvier and happier person because of it. Although the journey was a very challenging and painful path to go through, it was through my divorce that I learned things about myself that helped mold me into the person I am today.
I pushed myself hard, went to college, becoming an astute businesswoman climbing the ladder in every company I worked for, eventually starting my own business. Through it all, what kept me going, was my daughter. I knew I needed to make sure she grew up in a warm, nurturing home with core values and I would allow nothing to stand in my way of achieving that.
The divorce system is not an easy one to navigate. Going through it was a challenge I had yet to master. As a result, I was flooded with unexpected waves of emotion, confusion, feelings of helplessness and fear of the future. When I look back I wish I had someone to help me navigate through that crazed maze of divorce turbulence, providing me with vital information I needed to know. Someone who would have helped me care for myself, so I could be the best me I can be, providing me with the tools I needed to remain mentally and emotionally strong and healthy, grounded and balanced so that I can come out of the experience empowered. It was a struggle I faced mostly on my own, a battle that drained me financially and emotionally, thankfully with a lot of help from G-d I sure mastered it. But I know the extreme difficulties and challenges it entails.
Having been through my turbulent marriage and difficult divorce, I made the decision to devote myself in empowering women by enlightening them with the knowledge they need to successfully emerge from their situation at hand. That is what prompted my decision to become a licensed divorce and empowerment coach. I want to provide women with the proper tools and insights, to avoid experiencing the pain and anguish I experienced. I want to be the source of empowerment that helps women walk away from their divorce emotionally healthy and stronger than they had ever been, and I am determined to do whatever it takes to achieve that.
BECOME A HERO! BE A VICTIM NO MORE!!!
As I stated at the start of my bio, life is a journey. Now the question is, which path will you take?
