Background Experience

Better Divorce Academy comes from my own experiences in a difficult divorce. It was one of the 1% of divorces that go to a full trial and appeals process, and living through that ordeal taught me so much. I went through hell to find my sanity, and I vowed to never let anyone else go through the same thing.

My training as a divorce coach and mediator taught me that separation doesn’t have to be a terrible thing. Divorce can be a journey for both parties where there’s less stress, no fighting, and you both come away with a sense of closure and clarity about the future. I do this by breaking down the steps through the divorce process for each of my clients. Together, we find the best course of action to minimize obstacles and save time, money, and sanity.

Personal growth like this doesn’t come without loss, and through loss, we must heal. I utilize my training as a birth doula, yoga teacher, wellness advocate, and dharma code facilitator to help soothe your healing process and create a better tomorrow.


Working with Paulette has given me reassurance that my dreams are possible. She’s been a guiding light to help me access life goals from my heart, and those specific goals took away my stress and was replaced with confidence, excitement and drive. The pieces and people in my life seemed to fall into place as I showed up for each day with my intention. Paulette is patient and thorough in her approach and sees you as the complete individual that you are. She will help you surprise yourself. Creating this clear picture simplifies and energizes my desires to live my best life.

Paulette Rigo is a superstar. She acted as my friend, advisor, and ally during a tumultuous and emotional time following a devastating relationship break-up. The resources she provided gave me a vocabulary to understand my experiences, while her coaching and guidance was invaluable in my healing. She helped me gain a deeper connection to myself. Paulette is a loving, kind, and empathetic spirit. I would highly recommend working with her in times of confusion, overwhelm and fear!

Working with Paulette through my divorce I felt anything was possible. Her gift is helping one create solutions and, ones purpose, as well as identifying obstacles we create for ourselves. She is wise and deep yet fun and enjoyable to work with. You can be assured you will have very clear stepping stones to walk with Paulette by your side, as you make your dreams and new life ahead full of attainable goals
