Divorce Journaling

Are you dealing with the fallout from a divorce?

You’re hurting. Maybe you’re angry. Undoubtedly, you’re scared. Life has taken an unexpected and frightening turn. You feel alone and no one truly understands what you’re going through. You have a hard time not obsessing so your mind won’t let you rest. Your emotions feel raw.

Your heart is breaking for what this is doing to the life you worked so hard to create.

There are so many questions and so few answers.

Divorce lies at the top of the list of stressful life events for a reason. It is one of the most painful and difficult transitions. It seems to take forever to step into the new normal. In fact, at times you think life will never be “normal” again.

You need to take the time to really deal with the gamut of emotions you are experiencing. The longer you soldier on, the longer it will take to begin to heal, to recover, to move on.

One of the best ways to move forward is by putting the oxygen mask on yourself first. By choosing EXTREME SELF-CARE. You are in a vulnerable, fragile state and you need all the understanding, compassion and love you can offer yourself. You absolutely, positively have to be there for YOU.

I know. I’ve been there.

When my husband left unexpectedly after 26 years of what I thought was a solid marriage, I was in shock. Then I felt broken. In an attempt to save myself, I read voraciously about developing resiliency. I went for therapy. I power walked. I spoke with mentors, dear friends, family.


I have often heard people say “journaling saved my life” and while I can’t know that for sure, it absolutely, positively saved my sanity. It also gave me so much more: perspective, self-compassion and self-acceptance, opportunity for healing and growth, clarity and purpose.

In fact, journaling was such an affordable, accessible and therapeutic tool that I took my interest in journaling’s many benefits and made it my career. I studied with the Therapeutic Writing Institute of the Centre for Journal Therapy so I could help other women.

Women like you.

It’s my mission.

I went from Broken to Broken Open.

Here’s what others had to say about this workshops:

“After my divorce was finalizing , I was blessed with the opportunity to meet Helene. Her gentle and creative spirit invited me to commit to myself by doing her divorce journaling course.

By exploring myself and intentions in the weekly exercises, I uncovered a lot of buried feelings of hurt, pain, and despair. In a short amount of time I was no longer stuck in a rut or spinning my wheels. As I allowed words to come out on paper, I gained the clarity, self-acceptance, and forgiveness that I needed to take my life back. With that shift, I found a profound sense of joy, happiness, and peace of mind. With Helene as my fabulous guide/mentor, I felt truly safe and supported.

I am truly grateful for our time together…”  – Tracy K.


“I loved Helene’s workshop. The divorce journaling really helped me to write my own story rather than be a character in somebody else’s. It exceeded my expectations.” – Darlene M.

“Helene makes this workshop very interesting and very powerful. I love the prompts to get you writing. This workshop helped me to move on and see that there is light at the end of those dark days of what I went through.”  Lise A.

“I love how Helene explains the journaling. She is very passionate about this and it makes it that much more pleasurable. I love the use of prompts. I love that we are not alone in our story. Others are going through it too.

I believe that this workshop helped me immensely.  Loved Helene’s way of listening and teaching her passion. I looked forward to coming each session to meet up and share and write. I would do it again and again.”  Sandra M.
