“It is easy to become overwhelmed emotionally and financially by the divorce process, and it’s easy for the divorce to spiral out of control with devastating results.” Those are the words of Mardi Winder-Adams, who has spent the past severeal years coaching high-achieving women before, during and after divorce.

What I love about Mardi is that she brings so much experience to the table, (including 25 years as a credentialed mediator),  she’s a great listener, and she has a tremendous passion to help women become empowered, confident and healthy again!

“I started working with Mardi as an executive coach several years ago. This year, after making the difficult decision to divorce, I called on her again. From our first meeting I felt more informed and in control of my divorce, resulting in feeling confident and empowered throughout this very difficult time in my life.”

– Maria V.

“Going through divorce in my 50’s I was almost paralyzed about making decisions and knowing what to do and how to choose. My attorney fees were going through the roof as I was constantly on the phone with him. He actually recommended Mardi and I know I saved thousands of dollars in legal fees by knowing how to talk to my attorney and what he could help me with and where to go for non-legal information about the process. ”

– Jaleasha H.

“I was feeling in freefall throughout my separation and the upcoming divorce. I hired the wrong lawyer who did not listen to me or seem to care about what I wanted. In working with Mardi, I clarifed what I wanted in a lawyer and I completed interviews and hired the right attorney – something I had no idea how to do. Mardi has also helped me to save over 175k by recommending I hire an appraiser for some property and assets that I had previously undervalued and was willing to let my ex have for way below market price. Definitely recommend her services if you have any type of assets and if conflict and distrust is a factor in your relationship.”
