CDC Certified Divorce Coach® Catherine Chaffee came from a mediator background, wanting to help guide people to a better place in life. Catherine’s greatest joy is knowing that she has helped bring someone from a place that is so emotionally debilitating to a place where they are free to be their true selves.

Catherine shares a client story in this video of a young father who came to her – his initial problem being his ex-wife and her combative style. It turned out it wasn’t really that simple, and Catherine worked through a series of activities where the young father was able to step into the shoes of his ex-wife and explore her perspective. He realized that he had a very negative attitude towards her but realized that she had some positive attributes and there were times in the past when things had worked between the two of them.

Catherine’s client was able to make a mind shift and think more positively towards communicating with her and working out a parenting plan that benefited both of them. He is now able to have a strong working relationship with his ex-wife and that means everything in terms of a growing relationship with his child.

The animosity is no longer there and the young father is able to regard his ex-wife as a participating parent and good mother for his daughter, just as she’s able to regard his participation as a parent and his strengths.

Catherine shares that it’s amazing to wake up every day and know that she can help someone truly reach a place where they can be their best self and overcome a horrible time in their life and move on to a place that reflects their true wants and desires and where they really want to be in life.
