About my Practice

My name is Darleen Smith and I am excited to offer my services to anyone looking to begin coaching to improve their life. I became Certified as a CDC Divorce Coach in 2023, and I find helping anyone going through the divorce process extremely rewarding and my way of giving back. I am the founder and CEO of “Stronger Than You Think Coaching LLC” and I specialize in Divorce Coaching & Recovery Coaching.

I myself went through an extremely toxic, high-conflict divorce about 10 years ago, and found myself lost, alone and a single-parent to my young children. Although I came out so much stronger, the process was a nightmare and I simply wish I knew about Divorce Coaching, as it would have spared me time, money and my overall well-being.

I have worked professionally for over 20 years (Counseling & Educator/Lecturer) helping people. For Divorce Coaching, I specialize in High-Conflict Divorces, Substance Abuse, Mental Health, and Domestic Violence.  I am very empathic, non-judgmental and extremely compassionate to everyone I work with.

I offer my coaching sessions remotely (via Zoom), in-person (local to Suffolk County, N.Y.), or through telephone calls.   Feel free to check out my website http://www.stytcoaching.com to schedule your complimentary 30 minute coaching session.
