Divorce and Relationship Coach, Karen McMahon, joins me today to discuss the hardest parts of co-parenting, tips to help your kids through divorce, and how to deal with a high conflict ex. Listen in to learn how you can build a strong and lasting foundation for parenting teens and young adults.
Karen McMahon is a Certified Relationship and Divorce Coach, Founder of Journey Beyond Divorce. Karen leads a team of divorce coaches in supporting men and women around the world to become calm, clear and confident as they navigate divorce.
Karen began divorce coaching in 2010 after recognizing that the pain of her divorce led her on a transformational journey into an incredible new life. During her three and a half year tumultuous divorce, Karen had a laser focus on healing and refining herself, she found her true voice, learned to set suitable boundaries, and surrendered what she could not control. As a result, her life began to improve exponentially. Karen has since spent the last decade helping thousands of men and women navigate the emotional and practical difficulties of relationships, breakups and divorce. Karen is the host of the acclaimed Journey Beyond Divorce Podcast, co-author of ‘Stepping out of Chaos: Turning Pain to Possibility” and co-creator of JBD’s exclusive 12 Step Divorce Recovery Program. Her other accomplishments include work as a NYS Lobbyist, Health Advocate, Community Organizer, and Chairperson of a NYS non-profit organization, Director of Sales and Marketing, and successful small business owner.
It took Karen three years to decide she wanted to leave her spouse and get divorced. She describes herself as an “emotional hot mess” during that journey, which ultimately led her to building her program, Journey Beyond Divorce.
