Ditch your inner “Good Girl”
overcome uncertainty,
and Win at your Life

Divorce can be overwhelming.

Uncertainty can be paralyzing.

You have more questions, than you do answers:

  • What could I have done differently?
  • Will the kids be okay?
  • Will I be alone for the rest of my life?
  • What will my friends think?
  • How will I pay my bills?
  • What will happen to the house?
  • Will I ever be happy again?
Start Here

When you are contemplating or going through a divorce, there are many decisions to be made, such as:

  • Process
  • Finances
  • Custody
  • Parenting Schedules
  • Co-parenting
  • Division of Assets
  • Property
  • Support
  • Selecting an Attorney

Where do you even begin?

What do you do first?

“If you are going through a divorce and don’t know which way to turn, look to the d·course where you will start your journey of healing and recovery.”

Twyla Marks

“This course is something I wish I would have had when I was going through my divorces.There's so much useful and much needed information.”

April KirkHost of Co-parenting Past Chaos Podcast

“Renee, just wanted to let you know I had a chance to go through your course. You are brilliant. So much good information and helpful content in there.”

Brittany Szabo

“The way Renee presents examples of real-life situations is insightful and straight to the point. There is so much useful information in there that could literally save someone going through a divorce hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.

I appreciated the co-parenting section the most. Renee gives very clear guidance on how to navigate the difficult journey of co-parenting, so that it doesn’t feel quite as overwhelming.

It really gave me some powerful tools to use when it comes to dating after divorce. It changed my view on it entirely and I’ve had more positive relationships because of it!

The advice Renee gives can really save a lot of time and money. There are answers in there that I would have otherwise asked my lawyer and paid $300 an hour for.

I absolutely love this course!!!”

-Lindsay C.

Renee's knowledge, endless patience, as well as confidence, kindness, and sympathy, all made me feel as if I was taking the first step to a positive change in my life.

Renee is not only knowledgable in family law but she personally cares about people and how they are impacted by the legal system. She is smart and compassionate. Thank you, Renee, for everything!


Renee expertly guided me through my divorce and made the process as smooth as possible. Renee is a strategic thinker who offers practical and helpful advice and solutions.


This book is absolutely phenomenal. It's a very helpful and simple way to for children to understand the difficult process of divorce and can assist parents in the explanation of the changes happening between mommy and daddy.

As an attorney, everyone I know comes to me for advice when they are considering a divorce. The problem is, I don't practice family law!
