About my Practice


“Above all, be the heroine in your life, not the victim
 

-Nora Ephron

Divorce is a hard and often lonely process. It can stop you in your tracks and leave you completely immobilized. As a Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator and CDC Certified Divorce Coach ®, I am passionate about working with clients and families in conflict looking for an alternative mean to address their issues and difficulties, while supporting their own personal growth and happiness. You do not need to do this alone!

Specializing in pro-se mediation, I am a child centered mediator who works with couples to facilitate divorce settlement agreements that put children first. After starting my own independent practice, Mediating-Matters, LLC in Palm Beach County, FL, I recognized how very difficult and stressful the divorce process can be for all parties involved, especially those with children. As such, I added Divorce Coaching to my family practice and have been working as a CDC Certified Divorce Coach® in addition to my role as a family mediator.

Unlike mediation where I am a neutral party to the process, as a divorce coach, I work with clients in an individualized collaborative process to help them navigate “the divorce” as well as manage the stress, social/cultural stigma and conflict associated with such. I specialize in work with client’s in conflict, whether those are individual’s who are contemplating divorce and are unsure what to do or those who are currently caught in the throes of divorce. Using an integrative approach of emotional support, information, and education, I guide my clients through the business of divorce while helping them develop the skills necessary to make the best possible decisions for their future. Through supportive guidance and personal coaching, my clients gain the clarity and confidence needed to reduce the overwhelm inherent in the divorce process and successfully move on with their lives.

Individual client goals and outcomes include:

  • Managing emotions associated with divorce and the divorce process

  • Being their “Best Self” and to not allow the “divorce” to define them

  • Identify the best divorce/legal process based upon individual needs and wants

  • Understanding how divorce will affect their children and family and how to best support the transition

  • Understanding the financial impact of divorce and the steps necessary to become a confident financial decision maker

  • Developing the confidence to make independent decisions that are in the best interest of themselves and their family as they pertain to the divorce and settlement agreements

  • Developing goals and a real working plan to take the action necessary to move forward

  • Re-defining themselves as a newly single person and what the next chapter in their life will look like

Background Experience

Testimonials

Working with Tracy Callahan as my Divorce Coach was like adjusting binoculars into sharp focus. I could see my future. Gone were the useless tropes of “winning,” there is no winning in divorce. Instead, her approach was rooted in demystifying the divorce process allowing me become the best decision maker possible for myself and my children. Tracy’s healthy perspective and empowering guidance helped me understand my state’s formula and the knowledge that a protracted legal battle would have the same outcome as a mediated settlement. I was able to save tens of thousands of dollars in excessive lawyer fees. Tracy works hard to keep her clients from getting entangled in the endless loop of their “divorce story.” I was able to move on to the exciting next chapter of my life with grace and in one piece.
