As a child of divorced parents, an ex-wife, a “next” wife, and the previous partner of a divorced dad, personal experience taught her that divorce is about evolution, not dissolution.
Tara works as a coach, author, mediator, and educator with a passion for healthy and happy divorces. She provides personal private coaching as well as online courses and community events. Tara’s the author of the book The D-Word: Divorce Through a Child’s Eyes, the workbook, Your Bittersweet Beginning, and the blog, Relative Evolutions. She’s been interviewed for various radio and TV programs, and her writing has been featured by The Huffington Post, Divorcedmoms.com, Family Affaires, DivorceForce, Stepmom Magazine and MariaShriver.com.
In her community, Tara offers conflict resolution support and educational events. She is also a volunteer mediator and former Board President of Neighborhood Dispute Settlement in her hometown. On a more personal note, Tara loves animals, ice cream, and sleep. She spends much of her free time appreciating nature from one of many hiking trails.
