Happily Ever After 2.0 starts here
Divorce is a powerful threshold. As we cross over from partnered to single, we leave a way of life and an identity behind—and often so much more.
I believe these losses give us an unprecedented opportunity. To know ourselves more authentically. To heal ourselves more deeply. When my marriage ended, I leaned into the pain and used it to learn, grow, and reconstruct my sense of self and family. You can, too.
Radical Divorce gives you a vast library of tools, strategies, and insights for living your best life. I’m so glad you’re here! Let’s make divorce your launchpad for Happily Ever After 2.0.
6 Sacred Practices of Radical Divorce
Make your kids' well-being your North Star
Finding a positive and peaceful way through divorce is the best investment you can make in your kids’ future—and your own.
Move from complaint to desire
Everything you don’t want holds the key to what you DO want. Start there.
Say "Thank you" (and mean it)
Gratitude is the path to resilience. It sustains a spirit of collaboration. And it keeps us focused on all that’s going right. This makes more room for more things to go right.
Blame keeps you stuck. Self-responsibility sets you free. No one can make or take your happiness but you.
Use what hurts you to heal you
You can get through it or grow through it. When you focus on evolving, what hurt you can also help heal you. That makes everything you go through “worth it”.
Tell the stories that move you forward
We don’t live in our lives. We live in the stories we tell about our lives. Do you want to be victim or victor? Tell the story that takes you there.

In a museum-sized swell of mourners that could not begin to fill the space Sam left in his wake, I was seated next to my eight-year-old son, Theo. Next to ... Read More
Radical Coparenting Strategy #3: Bite the MonkeyI live with a twelve-year-old German Shepherd mix named Hamachi. A large dog with a large mouth, Machi gets mouthy when she’s excited. For example, during her younger days, at walk time, she would have a friendly nosh on anything in reach—my ankles, her leash, my butt—while yowling and leaping around. Years ago, I learned to intercept this behavior by ... Read More
Radical Coparenting Strategy #2: Leave the Dance FloorMost divorcing parents I speak with have a story that goes something like this: Our relationship sucks, and it’s the other parent’s fault. If he would just stop doing X, Y, Z, I could be happy. Sound familiar? Another comment I can count on when people see my coparent and me getting along is this: Well, YOUR blended family works ...

What are you listening for?In the largest tree of my neighborhood sits an invisible bird who shouts, with great urgency, “Mom! Mom! Mom”. Every morning dog walk is punctuated by this ricochet of demand that registers in my nervous system and puts me on high alert. As I go into autopilot solve-for-the-child-in-need mode, I remind myself each time that the sound I am hearing ... Read More
