Holly Herzog, Specializing in divorce coaching for the early stages of divorce

Meet Holly Herzog, divorce coach for the early stages of divorce and creator of the online e-course, Stagger, Stumble and Stand


Holly Herzog, LPC and Divorce Coach


When I got divorced in 2008, there was no such thing as a divorce coach (or at least, I’d never heard of one). I wish so much that I’d had the option of working with one. I think it would have taken away a lot of the fear of the unknown and stress I was experiencing at the time, which caused me countless sleepless nights and a lot of pain.

I’m not saying a divorce coach makes divorce a pleasant experience. Every divorce is filled with heartbreak, pain, sadness, fear, anxiety, anger and many other difficult emotions. But a divorce coach is a trained professional who acts as a source of support, encouragement and inspiration. They are your sidekick throughout the process, helping with issues such as: co-parenting, talking to your kids about the divorce, dealing with your ex, managing anger, making decisions about the house and other assets, understanding the divorce process, talking about your finances, dating and more.  A divorce coach can help you know what to expect, and be by your side when things get rough (which sadly, they almost always do.)

Holly is a therapist and a divorce coach, who works with clients all over the U.S. in individual and group coaching sessions. Having lived all of this herself, Holly is compassionate and understanding on a personal level, as well.

Holly also co-wrote and produced an online divorce e-course called “Stagger, Stumble and Stand,” designed to help people getting divorced get through the first few months. What’s so nice about the course is that you can complete it on your own time!

I am so excited to have Holly as a DGS partner. She has an energetic and warm personality, and brings so much experience to the table.

Holly’s Bio:


When life changes dramatically from unplanned circumstances, adjusting to the new path can be challenging.  This is something I have lived, and I am passionate about helping other people survive such a difficult time.  I help my clients cope with grief, come to terms with their new reality, and begin to dream about possibilities. The dreams are such a joy for me to witness.

I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark College and have been a practicing licensed professional for over 20 years.  I specialize in all things relationship oriented…most especially the one with ourselves.  

Among my greatest teachers are my loved ones and nature. My children are the impetus for continued personal growth as I want to be my best. My family has informed my relationship skills, my response patterns, and my coping tools. My partnerships have taught me that loving myself is more important than having the love of another, despite the happiness I feel when I am with someone I love. Nature teaches me that I can find beauty in every scene, if only I look and is a constant reminder of the impermanence of any situation.  To learn more, set up an appointment, or buy my online class, visit my website.

“Stagger Stumble and Stand Ecourse literally took me step by step through the stages of divorce I was experiencing in real time. I would end each tumultuous day with these videos and tools and would be able to sleep. The strategies and tools are invaluable and are now part of my daily practice when dealing with challenges.”


“Being part of the Grace Untethered community with women who had been experiencing similar situations has provided support that even my best friends could not give. I have reached out numerous times, in real time struggles, and there is always a quick, supportive response from members in this group.”


“Holly, you have helped me tremendously! I call you my angel on earth. Without your assistance, I would not be in a good place today and moving past the trauma I experienced in the decade plus relationships of narcissistic abuse. As a result, I have learned how to set boundaries, speak my truth and that I matter. I see the world through a much different lens now, contemplating this new journey with peace, joy and love in my heart. No more walking on eggshells or avoidance, but surrounding myself with good people that truly value me and my blessings.”


“Grace Untethered provided me with much needed support at a critical time in my divorce process. Holly was able to organize meets with two other women who were at different points in the creation of their new lives. She facilitated our conversations, but also allowed the talks to take an organic course. Learning about their experiences, and sharing my own helped me tremendously. I highly recommend any person going through a divorce to access Grace Untethered as a resource.”
