Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Warren Medwin.
Jennifer, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Guiding others to develop their own strengths has always been my passion. As an educator with a Master of Science degree and as the business owner of a successful domestic placement agency, I have strived to be a consistent source of encouragement for my students and clients.
When I divorced, after seventeen years of marriage, many of which were unhappy, I used the situation as an opportunity to examine where I had been and the direction I wanted to go. In coaching, I implement my personal experiences and the training I received from the CDC Certified Divorce Coach® program to provide others with positive, practical, and emotional support as they navigate and grow from their divorce journey.
My specialty is working alongside women with children who are fearful of a high conflict divorce process. There is reassurance in knowing that someone is there to hold your hand who has been through the process and who has specific training.
You can move forward in a positive direction. Coaching will complement the other divorce professionals on your team and help you make the best decisions for your future based on your goals.
Are you ready to feel empowered?
Has it been a smooth road?
I tried to bury my truth from myself for many years of my marriage. The negative feelings of discontent would surface, and I would push them aside. After all, I had made a commitment to my husband, and I valued that promise. I also have two beautiful children that I didn’t want to let down. I lived my life on auto pilot hoping things would improve. I was slowly dying emotionally, physically, and spiritually in my marriage.
Through my journey of self-discovery, I learned that I wanted to be the master creator of my life. As terrified as I was for my family dynamics to change, getting divorced was a gift that pushed me out of my comfort zone into a world where my truth became my foundation.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Seeking Empowerment: Clarity through Partnership – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
The American Bar Association recently added Divorce Coaching to a list of alternative dispute resolutions. Since that period, the profession has been described as the fourth element of the divorce process. Together, a divorce coach will work alongside the other members of a client’s legal team to provide the best possible outcomes regarding the dissolution of marriage. At this stage, many clients experience a gap between where they are and where they want to be. With the guidance of a divorce coach, clients will develop a roadmap for their divorce, have help organizing for the process, and learn skills necessary to communicate their needs, wants, and desires effectively without all of the emotional turmoil.
Getting divorced is a time consuming and challenging process. Studies show that when individuals are in turmoil and get caught up in the emotional rollercoaster, they are not able to access their logic and problem solving abilities in the same way that they would on a calm, normal day. Overwhelm leads to costly emotional and financial mistakes in divorce, which have long-term consequences for all parties involved. Personal divorce coaches help clients become aware of how their mindset creates obstacles and how they have the power of choice to break down challenges. They guide their clients in a forward focused path encouraging them to honor their truth through self-discovery and partner with them in making the best possible decisions for themselves. Divorce coaches prepare clients, one step at a time, to turn the emotional side of divorce into the business of divorce and end up saving them money. They assist in building up their client’s resiliency to turbulence and to negotiate for their future implementing conscious thought and intentional decision-making.
Divorce coaching clients can find inner peace amongst the chaos. They are the expert in their lives and are guided to understand that no matter how stuck they feel, choices always exist. Divorce Coaches are the clients’ thinking partners who create an environment of trust and safety where the individuals learn to move through the divorce process with pride and dignity while preserving self-esteem. . The goal is to help the clients show up as their best self, navigate efficiently through the process, gain insight, and create a life vision for themselves based on specific intensions. Clients gain an objective expert and sounding board in their corner who will guide them to become forward focused, confident, courageous, and self-reliant individuals.
Everyone faces challenges and problems that test their fortitude. My mission is to partner with clients who are contemplating or going through the divorce process to regain their emotional strength and dignity while forging ahead and creating the life they desire.
I am most proud that I have been able to create a business that fulfills my passion for empowering women in a new industry.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I like the cultural diversity of Miami. It is a melting pot of languages, beliefs, customs, and culinary styles.
I do not like the traffic in Miami. With so many people moving here everyday, the roads are overcrowded. I frequently have to make sure that I leave early for an appointment so that I am not late. I do try to look for the silver Lining in all situations so, when I find myself in traffic, I listen to a self-help podcast. I usually learn something new that I can share with my clients.
