Few events touch as many facets of your experience as divorce.

Hopeafterdivorce.org and Lisa Borchetta, owner of Firebird Life Coaching, announce a new workshop, “On Becoming One Again: A Virtual Group for Women Facing Divorce,” to begin July 23, 2013. This eight-week workshop brings women across the country together in a small, intimate, virtual community to connect, inspire, support, and encourage one another through the challenging transition of divorce.

“Along your journey through life, few events touch as many facets of your experience as divorce. Your living arrangements, your finances, and your relationships with friends and family, to name just a few, are all impacted by this significant change in life circumstance,” states Borchetta. “It can be daunting, frustrating, and scary!” Borchetta created this group to allow women to connect with other women facing this same challenging transition in a small community to acknowledge the past, evaluate the present, and set goals for the future.

The “Becoming One” group will meet from 7/23/13 – 9/10/13 and is offered on Tuesdays from 2:00-3:00 p.m. EST or Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00 p.m. EST. Space is limited to six participants per time slot, and some financial assistance is offered based on availability and client need.
