“As a family law attorney in Santa Rosa for over 25 years, my job is to help separating or divorcing couples navigate through similar painful situations. My goal is to make a positive difference for clients and their children who are surrounded by swirling emotional tides beneath their ocean of legal issues. The undertow of the breakup snatches away their trust, and waves of doubt crash over their rock of security. They need a safe harbor to repair their human vessel and make it seaworthy again.”
Jeanne shares five important principles for helping people through the divorce process. These five principles are referenced as the five fingers on your hand, For example, #1 Encouragement – Thumb. “First, give yourself a “thumbs up” as a reminder that you can get through this and not be overwhelmed. If you were my client I would encourage you to surround yourself with positive emotional support. “
If you, or someone you know, is are going through the dissolution of a marriage, Jeanne Browne’s chapter will provide you with helpful and encouraging solutions for getting through this journey.
