Divorce is personal to Lesley Stubock. In 2011, after nine and a half years of marriage, she found herself divorced and raising two small children. She understands the roller coaster of emotions and the challenges a person goes through from her own experience. More importantly, she also knows that it is possible to achieve happiness again.
It's that personal journey that led her to specialize in divorce coaching for women. In her practice, Lesley partners with women to help them through the divorce process physically, mentally, and emotionally. She helps clients manage their emotions while utilizing tools to deal with their ex-partner, protect their children, connect with what really matters to them, and navigate the legal process. Though not a legal professional or financial advisor, Lesley provides the emotional support needed to continue the divorce process and plan the rest of their post-divorce lives.
Ultimately, Lesley's mission is to help others create a new future where divorce doesn’t define them. Her clients end the divorce process smarter and more confident, ready to seek out new adventures filled with hope and possibility.
