-JS

I'm so grateful for Jen and her warm and loving presence during the entire divorce process. She guided my ex and I through the overwhelm and I was able to shift my perspective from one of ffear and confusion, to one of hope and gratitude. I was able to see my ending marriage in a new light, revealing how much I grew as a person from this experience. A very different approach than most divorce horror stories.
Thank you so much Jen!
