Are you filled with angst because you don’t know if your marriage is salvageable, or have you made the decision to divorce and don’t know where to go from here? Perhaps your spouse is the one who wants the divorce and your head is spinning. You’re likely wondering how to tell the kids and feel concerned about their wellbeing. Maybe your marriage has been impacted by infidelity or substance abuse. Or, perhaps, you are already divorced and feeling “stuck”.
If any of these situations resonate with you, you most likely have some decisions to make and don’t know where to start.
Whether you are trying to decide if your marriage is salvageable or experiencing or overcoming divorce, I can help. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and CDC Certified Divorce Coach®. Not only am I a thinking partner, but I can offer resources to help you move forward and make sound decisions that are sensitive to the family system.
Before you call an attorney, call me
Not only can I help you manage your emotions and overwhelm, but I can also help save you some money. I am committed to offering a safe, non-judgemental space in which you can heal and start the process of creating the life of your dreams, whether you choose to stay in your relationship or not.
How will the kids be affected?
Most of the trauma for children is in how the divorce is handled, not the divorce itself. Ideally, it is best to repair the relationship and model a healthy marriage for your kids. When that’s not possible, for your kid’s sake, reach out for help today!

Meet Sherry L. Smith, LMFT, CDC®, CPTT-C
Marriage and Family Therapist | CDC Certified Divorce Coach® | Certified Partner Trauma Therapist- Candidate
Through my own experience as a child of divorce and, later, my own divorce, I have a strong belief that the narrative around divorce needs to change. My belief is that when a marriage ends it does not mean the family ends. It just means the family takes on a different form. Sometimes new members join the family, sometimes not. I also believe divorce can be the catalyst for the change needed to reconnect with the best version of yourself.
Through my specialized training in relationships, I am here to help you achieve a kinder, gentler and more compassionate child-centered divorce that minimizes trauma to the family system. My training includes:
- Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy
- CDC Certified Divorce Coach®
- Discernment Counseling for couples with divorce ambivalence
- Training in Collaborative Divorce through the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP)
- Certified Partner Trauma Therapist- Candidate
