Let's Talk About Sex: Ask a Therapist
Therapist extraordinaire Michelle MicKitrick joined us again. This time, we drew on her expertise as a sex therapist to answer the burning question on many separated women’s minds: "How will I EVER be able to get naked with another human, and do I even want to?”
Michelle tackled aaaaallll the things in the bedroom and everyone walked away with some great advice.
Coping 101: Ask a Therapist
When preparing for your life before/during/after separation, you need to build a team of experts to help you navigate this new path: someone to help you with the legal aspects of separation, someone to help you with a plan to make you financially whole, and someone to help you put the pieces back together to make sure you're stronger, healthier and happier on the other side.
Registered psychotherapist, marriage and family therapist, and certified sex therapist, Michelle McKitrick is who you will want on your team. Michelle answered all of our hardest questions about how to know if it's time and what to say when you've made the difficult decision to leave.
Financial Planning 101: Charting your (newly single) financial course
Laura Fralick, retired Certified Financial Planner answered questions like "How will I qualify for a mortgage once I'm separated?", "Should I invest my equalization payment or use it to pay off debt?" or "What happens to my kids' RESPs after the divorce?" —then this event is for you!
We get it—money is stressful at the best of times. And downright terrifying when going through a separation. Let Laura put your mind at ease.
Family Law 101 - What you need to know before you go
Lauren Conti from Henderson Family Law guided us through what to know before meeting with a lawyer for the first time to discuss separation, divorce or custody.
She discussed what to expect during your first lawyer meeting, what to prepare in advance and how to know if your lawyer is a good fit for you.
