In the first episode of our new season, Jennifer welcomes psychologist and marriage counselor Dr. Kristin Davin, aka Dr. D, to discuss dating after a divorce or breakup and how to help yourself find the perfect partner. According to Dr. D, it starts with asking yourself 8 questions, through which you can dig down deep into yourself and find the things you really want from a partner and relationship and what strengths you need to bring out in yourself to make things work.

But when she herself got a divorce from her husband, she was suddenly bombarded with all the negatives surrounding divorce.

The founder of Tournesol Wellness, Carey Davidson, joins the podcast for a 4-part series discussing the 5 personality types and how to achieve optimal balance and resilience for each. In this first episode, Carey tackles how to become more self-aware and how you can self-regulate in order to make recovery from divorce or another major life change easier and sustain more benefits. This allows you to create a better relationship with your ex and with your children.
Radio talk show host Kelly Collis discusses how the realities of divorce do not match up to the expectations she had from divorce in movies. For one, mothers don’t always get full custody. For another, divorce is a messy and expensive process that doesn’t get resolved quickly. However, keeping yourself focused on moving forward and helping and supporting your kids while they go through this as well can make for a much more positive experience in the long run.
The founder of Savvy Ladies, Stacey Francis, explains to Jennifer how she was driven to help women become financially independent rather than stay in bad marriages. Stacy’s own grandmother had stayed in an abusive marriage because she was scared of financial ruin. The financial expert offers concrete advice on how to take control of your finances when facing divorce and what things to keep in mind when making a financial plan.
Therapist and author Whitney Boole joins Jennifer to discuss the importance of dealing with the emotional trauma of divorce alongside all of the practical matters that come up, like custody and spousal support. Why? As Whitney explains, the process of working through the emotional pain of divorce fuels personal growth and can be just the thing to empower you to handle the road ahead.
Jackie Pilossoph is the founder of the blog “Divorced Girl Smiling” and she joins Jennifer for a laugh and tear-filled episode to discuss how to get through some of the worst moments of divorce. Jackie and her husband divorced when their children were young and afterward, she felt isolated and lonely as the only person in her friend group going through it. That inspired her to create “Divorced Girl Smiling”, so other women wouldn’t need to feel that same loneliness. Jackie also shares some great tips for moving through divorce and keeping yourself grounded during the process.
While Anne Cutbill Lenane may have a successful career as a real estate broker, she has so much more to offer! In this episode, Ann joins Jennifer for some real talk about the challenges women face when dating after divorce. Ann’s advice is to be open, honest, and lighthearted, which is why the tagline in her viral taxi ad was 56, fit, and looking for love.”
