I’m Paulette

The Certified Divorce Coach and Mediator behind Better Divorce Academy.

I help women like you make it to the other side of divorce, stronger, emotionally empowered, and better financially prepared for your future.

Why I'm Here...

I See All Of Your Options As Healthy
And Hopeful Opportunities. Let's define what they are, together.

I finally found the courage to leave…

I am the 1%. I endured an 8.5-year divorce trial and full appellant process that 99% of people never experience. 

Because of that unprecedented experience, I am able to help others navigate all aspects of the divorce process from start to finish.

In 2007 I left my broken marriage. But what followed was even more painful.

Suffered relationships with my family and children. Emotional and financial mistakes that I just wasn’t prepared for at the time.

My own divorce was filled with many mistakes simply because I didn’t know what to do. And after years of getting knocked down, it wasn’t until I finally urged my lawyer, accountant, and therapist to collaborate as a unit, that I began to receive the full support that I needed. When I incorporated my wellness training along with a holistic approach, I began to see the light on the other side.

Because of my experience, I created Better Divorce Academy to share the knowledge I gained from my own grueling experience as well as years of professional training, life coaching, divorce designations, and mediation certification.

I am now highly experienced in working with women in high conflict dysfunctional relationships, including: Parental Alienation, Parental Estrangement, and Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I specialize in Divorce Recovery and Career Transition Support.

My professional life is devoted to gracefully navigating the journey wisely and helping women like you!

I created a new model to help families resolve its dilemma, with minimal stress, reduce costs, and less emotional scarring. 

If you’re currently finding yourself in any of these situations:

  • Continual feelings of confusion and overwhelm
  • Stressed about the effect divorce will have on your children
  • Exhausted by the process of each next step
  • Googling every possible ‘what-if’ or ‘how-to’ scenario
  • Unsure if you’re even making the right decision to begin with

I have developed a collaborative, holistic and systematic way to break down the steps, develop better options, and clear away obstacles to help you save precious time and money.

Better Divorce Academy saves time, relationships, heartache and money.

Dreaming of A better future
is YOUR right.

No more pretending.
No more repeating the past.
No regrets…
