About my Practice

I’m Leslie de la Cruz, a MBA-trained Certified Divorce Coach®, dedicated to supporting women navigating the complex journey of divorce and post divorce recovery.

One Sunday afternoon my husband of twenty years asked me to go for tea with him. Finally, he wanted to spend time with me. We were navigating raising two teenagers in Miami and his work kept him away crazy hours, but he was my best friend and confidant. We settled into the car for a chitchat. “I want a divorce”, he said. I was blindsided.  My perceived future evaporated in that moment.

Over the next year, I was on an emotional rollercoaster. I felt overwhelmed and numb. I was spewing my story but didn’t want to overburden my friends and family. Little by little, I learned the tools to negotiate the process of divorce. For example, I discovered the difficulty of separating my emotions from what would become the biggest business decision of my life affecting my financial and emotional future.  If someone had told me that it was possible to be happier than before my husband’s request, I wouldn’t have believed them. I found resilience, strength and learned so much about myself.

With a professional background spanning over two decades in business and finance and specialized certifications in Divorce Coaching and Divorce Transition and Recovery, I bring a wealth of expertise to help you manage not only the practicalities of divorce but also its emotional and financial impacts.

Who I Serve:

My practice focuses on assisting women, particularly those leaving a long-term marriage or who have placed their careers on hold to support their families and now face the challenge of rebuilding their lives. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of managing legal issues, financial uncertainties, or the emotional fallout of a divorce, you are not alone.

Why Work With Me:

My approach is tailored to provide holistic support, combining my deep understanding of business and finance with a compassionate approach to coaching. This blend of skills ensures that you’re equipped not only to face your current challenges but also to emerge from your divorce with a solid foundation for the future.

Embarking on your divorce journey can feel daunting, but with the right support, it can also lead to profound personal growth and renewed independence. Reach out today to see how I can help you take the first step toward a new chapter filled with potential and promise.
