Building on her own personal experience, it is her passion to help others going through emotional life transitions with clarity and knowledge. Her unique skill set and strengths in sales, as well as project management, make her a natural as a Coach and Real Estate Agent and gives her the ability to recognize and deliver on her client’s needs through every step of a very emotional process.

She is a one half of the “Your Divorce Coaches” Podcast, a Single Mom to two teenage girls, want-to-be stand-up comedian and prides herself on the fact she has never ordered a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

“I was on the verge of filing for divorce when someone from my church suggested I meet with
Theresa. I had not ever heard of a divorce coach and I didn’t understand why I was calling this person. Well what I got was a real life description of divorce from all perspectives. She didn’t tell me not to get a divorce, she just made me realize I would NEED to get alone with my spouse if we got divorced because it’s important for the kids health. So I put in effort and ended up staying married. I’m not saying my marriage is perfect but I’m thankful I had someone to give me the facts I needed to re-think my decision.”

“Therapy had helped my kids after my divorce but 3 years later I was still bitter and depressed. My therapist actually suggested I consider a coach that could help me create a life plan… and snap out of my negativity. My life is now completely different. My friends say I’m a new person. I owe it all to Heather.”

“I have a personal trainer, an assistant, even a concierge doctor. I outsource everything because my time is money. I listened to my attorney’s advice and immediately hired Heather Candelaria as my coach and my realtor. Anyone with a busy schedule like mine needs the efficiency of a coach during divorce.”

“When I went through my divorce I couldn’t count on my family or my friends to support me or understand my situation. I couldn’t sleep, couldn’t eat, and had to make major decisions regarding money, kids, etc… I wouldn’t be where I am today if Theresa had not helped me create a plan and emotionally let go of the pain.”

COACHING

Divorce coaching is a flexible, goal-oriented process designed to support, motivate, and guide people going through a divorce in order to help them make the best possible decisions for their future, based on their particular interests, needs, and concerns. The process is designed to help people dealing with pre-divorce, divorce and post-divorce issues. Depending on their personal situation and needs, a divorce coach can assist in avoiding procrastination and other roadblocks in order to move forward in the best way possible.

Attorneys and other divorce professionals often opt to work with divorce coaches because coaches do the non-legal work that attorneys and their staff generally don’t do or don’t have the time to do. Divorce professionals increasingly recognize how coaches can benefit their clients in areas from emotion and communication to organization issues and helping them get through and beyond divorce successfully.

The beauty of a divorce coach and the services we offer is that clients can choose the issues they want and need help with which can include a number of issues inherent in pre-divorce, divorce and/or post-divorce stages.

Divorce Coaches act as an independent 3rd party providing guidance, motivation and encouragement.
