What is a Divorce Coach?

Do I really need one?

coach at the gymWhether you are considering divorce, already in the process, or moving forward onto your new path, you may find you need help. What kind of help? It may be dealing with feelings of negativity or resentment or feeling lost or overwhelmed.

Or maybe, you just need to have someone to vent to (so you don’t burden your friends with another story about feelings of rejection).

Let’s face it – you have never felt this alone or vulnerable before.

But, beyond needing emotional support, there are practical, everyday decisions that need to be made. How do you choose an attorney? How do I tell my kids? How do I deal with difficult co-parenting situations? What do I want my life to look like after divorce?

Personal. Relatable. Private.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Melissa Provence. I am an Advanced Dispute Resolution Specialist, Mediator, Certified Divorce Coach™, and DCA™ Divorce Conflict Coach. I work directly with clients to help them navigate the emotional landscape of a painful divorce.

I am a shoulder to lean on – but, also a guide to help you through one of the toughest moments of your life.

How could I possibly know what you’re going through? In 2017, my husband suddenly announced that he wanted a divorce. We had been married for twelve years with two young children and until that moment, I would have never suspected either of us were unhappy with our relationship.

My entire life changed overnight. I went from living the ideal Woodlands “lifestyle” as a stay- at-home mother to a divorced, single parent who had no idea who she was as an individual and what the future held. The one thing I was sure of was that I never wanted another person to go through divorce alone.


Stop telling everyone… start talking to me. Let’s face it, you are in a lot of pain. You have a whole range of emotions and nowhere to put them. You may be confiding in friends, co- workers, or family but worrying that you’re burning them out. And to be honest, they love us so can they really be objective?
