The Dish on Divorce

Recognizing Financial Abuse with Jennifer Lawrence

Divorce coach, Jennifer Lawrence, joined family lawyer, Leanne Townsend, and mediator, Jennifer Barkin, to discuss an important topic, financial abuse during divorce, which can include denying a spouse access to a bank account or paycheck, and can even extend to preventing them from working. Although this issue is quite common, it is often hidden and hard to identify by the victim, so Jennifer works to shed light on it and support those experiencing this form of abuse.

Dating After Divorce with Darren Glickman

Leanne and Jennifer chatted with dating coach Darren Glickman, who works primarily with men, helping them get back into the dating world post-divorce. He speaks about online dating and gives tips and tricks on how to make effective profiles. Darren also touches on the issues that exist with dating in this day and age, especially with social media being so commonly used.

The Benefits of Energy Healing with Elisabeth Parsons

Elisabeth Parsons does incredible work helping separated and divorced women through the many programs that she has — including The Separation Club — and she is currently adding to her skill set by training in energy healing. She chatted with Leanne and Jennifer about how to utilize energy healing during a separation or a divorce. After her own divorce, Elisabeth went on a journey of self-discovery, and now strives to help other women discover themselves as well.

Hope After Divorce with Paula Seligman

Leanne and Jennifer were joined by life coach, Paula Seligman, who shared her own experience as a young divorcee. After falling into a dark hole post-divorce, Paula worked with a therapist, and through the help of her family and friends, climbed out and began to heal.
