Welcome, Beautiful Girl!

Divorced Girl Smiling is an honest, non-sugar-coated, helpful place for women and men who are thinking of separating, going through a divorce, or living life and dating after divorce, many as single parents.

I created this site to empower, connect and inspire you! Feel free to browse the site for articles written by me and my top-notch contributors. There are also wonderful professional resources — partners that I trust on Divorced Girl Smiling. These include professionals in the fields of divorce law, financial planning, real estate, mortgages, therapy, and divorce coaching.

I also encourage you to join the The Divorced Girl Smiling Facebook Group Page, where you can ask questions, have other members weigh in on your issues, and feel supported and connected!

Divorced Girl Smiling is safe and anonymous. Think of us as your friend that you can carry around with you (on your phone) to address your concerns, help you solve your problems, feel less alone, and get motivated to live your best and authentic life.
